Fleetwood Mac

some band info might not apply to Peter Green,
a member from 1967 thru 1970

The only thing about Fleetwood Mac that hasn't changed since the band formed in 1967 is the rhythm section of Mick Fleetwood and John ‘Mac’ McVie - fitting, since the band is named after those two. Through the Seventies, the band's personnel and style shifted with nearly every recording as Fleetwood Mac metamorphosed from a traditionalist British blues band to the maker of one of the best-selling pop albums ever, Rumours, then kept on for decades after that - to varying degrees of success. ~ Rolling Stone: Fleetwood Mac ~ retrieved October 23, 2013 © Rolling Stone

Fleetwood Mac ~ Inducted in the 1998 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
