Fleetwood Mac

Profile:
Founded in London in July 1967 (by ex-Bluesbreakers members, Peter Green and Mick Fleetwood), "Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac" instantly became a major force in the UK blues scene, along with their eponymous first album. Following "Mr. Wonderful" & "Then Play On" the driving force of Peter Green had deteriorated as he lapsed into a personal crisis by 1970. The group reorganized, under the leadership of Fleetwood, and slowly took on a new direction - away from the blues and into the mainstream of international popularity, known simply as Fleetwood Mac.

Five solid albums with Bob Welsh and he’s not inducted with the band into the Hall of Fame. Not that it matters much, but symbolically an inexcusable omission.

Well, there are some of us who consider the original band with Peter Green to be the "definitive" one ! While I recognize the talents of the Buckingham/Nicks outfit, their music doesn't move me the way the early band's music does.

A band with a long and convoluted history, Fleetwood Mac was originally conceived as a heavy blues outfit in the tradition of John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers. It wasn't until Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, and Christine McVie enlisted the services of soft-rock duo Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham that the band took on its definitive form. In Buckingham the band acquired a prodigious guitar talent and a gifted lyricist whose occasionally daffy sensibilities nicely complemented the tender intimacies of Nicks and McVie. Though incestuous liaisons within the group threatened to tear it apart, these also sparked some of the band's greatest material. Witness Rumours, to this day one of the top ten best selling albums of all time.
From the giddy, self-deprecating "Second Hand News" to the achingly beautiful "Gold Dust Woman," the album is painfully intimate -- and that's precisely what gives it power. Though a pair of mediocre releases in the '90s threatened to end the band's career with a whimper, The Dance (1997) restored Buckingham and Nicks to the fold and dusted the cobwebs off Fleetwood Mac's rich legacy.
