It is doubtful any band experienced more changes in members than Fleetwood Mac a combined British-American group originally formed in 1967.
Mick Fleetwood was there from the start but it was the addition of Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and John McVie that introduced Fleetwood Mac in the mid 70’s to the American Hit Parade with singles, “Over My Head,” “Rhiannon,” “Say You Love Me.”
Six million selling gold singles, “Go Your Own Way,” “Dreams,” “Don’t Stop,” “You Make Loving Fun,” “Tusk,” “Sara” fueled the sale of an estimated thirty million albums for “Rumours,” earning a Grammy award for album of the year in 1977. Other gold singles, “Hold Me,” “Big Love” and “Little Lies” kept Fleetwood Mac on the Hit Parade in the 1980’s.
The Fleetwood Mac bassist Bob Brunning died in 2011. Bob Weston, a guitarist and singer with the band died in 2012, as did singer and guitarist Bob Welch in 2012.
Fleetwood Mac has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and they were inducted into the Hit Parade Hall of Fame in 2009.
