Biography

London, United Kingdom (1967 – 1982, 1987 – present)

Fleetwood Mac is a British and American band formed in 1967. From the band’s inception through the end of 1974, no incarnation of Fleetwood Mac lasted as long as two years, but all featured core members Mick Fleetwood and John McVie.

The two most successful periods for the band were during the late 19 British boom, when they were led by guitarist Peter Green; and from 1975-87, with more -orientation, featuring Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. The band enjoyed more modest success in the intervening period between 1971 and 1974, with the line-up that included Bob Welch, and also during the 1990s which saw more personnel changes before the return of Nicks and Buckingham in 1997, and more recently, the departure of Christine McVie.

The only member present in the band from the very beginning is its namesake drummer Mick Fleetwood. Bassist John McVie, despite his giving part of his name to the band, did not play on their first single nor at their first concerts. Keyboardist Christine McVie has, to date, appeared on all but two albums, either as a member or as a session musician. She also supplied the artwork for the album Kiln House.

The band was started in London in 1967 by guitarist Peter Green, who recruited the rhythm section of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers: drummer Mick Fleetwood and bass guitarist John McVie.
