Fleetwood Mac are a British-American rock band formed in London in 1967. The band has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the world's best-selling bands. In 1998 select members of Fleetwood Mac were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. In 2018 the band was declared MusiCares Person of the Year.
The band was founded by guitarist Peter Green, drummer Mick Fleetwood and guitarist Jeremy Spencer. In late 1974, while Fleetwood was scouting studios in Los Angeles, he was introduced to folk-rock duo Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Fleetwood Mac soon asked Buckingham to be their new lead guitarist, and Buckingham agreed on condition that Nicks would also join the band. The addition of Buckingham and Nicks gave the band a more pop rock/folk rock sound and their 1975 self-titled album, Fleetwood Mac, reached No. 1 in the US.
The last studio album by the band was 2003's Say You Will. A side project known as Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie was released in 2017, containing contributions from the other band members except Nicks. In 2018, Buckingham was fired from the band, and was replaced by Mike Campbell, formerly of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Neil Finn of Split Enz and Crowded House.
