Fleetwood Mac- Rumours- Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood

Here is a present for YOU on Mick Fleetwood’s birthday, as the band’s namesake drummer/ co-founder completes another lap around the Sun.

When California musical duo (and lovers) Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks  joined British blues-rock veteran band Fleetwood Mac, their first collaboration in 1975 (their “white album” ) sold more copies than any previous album in the long history of their label. No one was in any way prepared for this new line-up’s stunning initial success, so you can imagine the in-house anticipation for Fleetwood Mac’s next effort. They had to wait a full year for it, however, as four of the five members were breaking up literally in the studio while Rumours   was being recorded. Fleetwood Mac co-founder drummer Mick Fleetwood joins Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks with me In The Studio for one of history’s most popular albums ever at around forty million sold worldwide ( half of that U.S. sales ), an album that Rolling Stone magazine ranks at #25 on their Top 500 All Time list .- Redbeard
