Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac - Dreams

*Fleetwood Mac  are a British-American rock band, formed in London in 1967. The band have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the world's best-selling bands of all time. In 1998, selected members of Fleetwood Mac were inducted into the  Rock and Roll Hall of Fame , and received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

The two most successful periods for the band were during the late 1960s British blues boom, when they were led by guitarist Peter Green and achieved a UK number one with *" Albatross "; and from 1975 to 1987, as a more pop-oriented act, featuring  Christine McVie Lindsey Buckingham  and  Stevie Nicks .

* Rumours  (1977), Fleetwood Mac's second album after the incorporation of Buckingham and Nicks, produced four US Top 10 singles and remained at No. 1 on the American albums chart for 31 weeks, as well as reaching the top spot in various countries around the world. To date, the album has sold over 40 million copies worldwide, making it the eighth-highest-selling album of all time. The band achieved comparatively modest success between 1971 and 1974, when the line-up included  Bob Welch, during the 1990s in between the departure and return of Nicks and Buckingham, and during the 2000s when Christine McVie was absent.

After numerous lineup changes the only original member present in the band is drummer  Mick Fleetwood , although John McVie was the band's first and only permanent bassist, and along with Fleetwood they are the two members to appear on every studio album. Although band founder Green named the group by combining the surnames of two of his former bandmates (Fleetwood and McVie) from John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, McVie played neither on their first single nor at their first concerts, as he initially decided to stay with Mayall. Keyboardist Christine McVie, who joined the band in 1970 whilst married to John McVie, appeared on every album except the debut album, either as a member or as a session musician. She left the band in 1998 but returned in 2014
