Band: Fleetwood Mac
In 1977 Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors debuted at Number One and held the spot for an astonishing 31 weeks, spawning the timeless classics “Gold Dust Woman,” “Go Your Own Way,” “The Chain” and “You Make Loving Fun.” Ranking at #25 in Rolling Stone‘s Top 500 albums, Rumors has sold over 20 million copies and is the third highest-selling single-disc album in history. To date, Fleetwood Mac has sold over 100 million albums, making them one of the best-selling artists of all time.
Originally a member of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers in the ’60s (alongside Eric Clapton), McVie was a disciplined bassist who understood the fluid swing of the blues, the core of early Fleetwood Mac recordings. For a lesson in bass/drum synchronicity and how it supported guitarist Peter Green’s blues reinvention, McVie’s work with Mick Fleetwood remains a rock yardstick.
