Personalities | Fleetwood Mac | Sixties | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1967–95, 1997–present)

Peter Green (vocals, guitar) had been a star of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, in which John McVie (bass) and Mick Fleetwood (drums) had toiled less visibly. In 1967, the three became ‘Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac’ after enlisting guitarist Jeremy Spencer. Later, a third guitarist, Danny Kirwan, was added. The outfit produced hits like ‘Albatross’ and ‘Oh Well’. Green’s exit in 1970 brought the group to its knees but acted as a catalyst for the birth of a new sound from the band.
