I myself personally like the band with Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks. Fleetwood Mac is awesome no matter which line-up you prefer.

Fleetwood Mac has had two very successful periods in the bands career, the British blues era (the late 60's) and their pop oriented era (1975-1987).

As far as vocalists go, I love Stevie Nicks. I love her gravelly, gruff voice. Her voice is what makes this band so unique, IMO. The release of 1975, after the band made their transition in personnel and moved to a more pop sound, is my absolute favorite release. Strangely, this release was the self titled release "Fleetwood Mac", which would steer you to believe it was their FIRST album.

I didn’t know that Fleetwood Mac is a rock band. I remember when I was in grade school, there was this song Sentimental Lady performed by Fleetwood Mac that hit the charts for quite a time. That’s why I remember it because it was so popular that every kid on the block was singing it not to mention the tv shows. But after that song, it seems that the band did not have another hit here. Or maybe because they had shifted to rock?

This band, Fleetwood Mac is a British-American rock band, and was always a great band and still is - they go way back though, forming in London in 1967. They have sold 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the world's favorite rock bands - that is for sure. My favorite song by Fleetwood Mac, is "Silver Springs" and is written by Stevie Nicks.

Fleetwood Mac have a real complicated history, once you get real into them it turns out they've had a lot more eras than just the 60s blue-rock, and 70s semi-American pop/rock 'Rumours/Stevie and Lindsey joining' periods.

Only know that from Bob Welsh's '77 solo version. Just looked the song up & it turns out it was originally from the bands post Peter Green, pre Stevie Nicks & Lindsey Buckingham period. (also turns out Bob Welch re-recorded again in 2003).
According to wikipedia Christine McVie contributes to both versions as does Mick Fleetwood on drums.

Tusk has some amazing sounding percussion (title track to the album of the same name, Lindsey's attempt at creating something different & new wave inspired in reaction/rejection of how popular the soft pop/soft rock of Rumours was. It's a weird track.)

It's been over a year & I still can't get my head around the fact that Neil Finn from Crowded House is now a member of Fleetwood Mac.
