Fleetwood Mac et al
Top 100 Songs
Drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie, Fleetwood Mac’s two consistent namesakes and only members throughout every incarnation, initially formed the group in 1967 as a blues outfit with Peter Green (guitar: 1967-70) and Jeremy Spencer (guitar: 1967-71). Members during the late ‘60s and early ‘70s included included Danny Kirwan (guitar: 1968-72), Christine McVie (keyboards, vocals: 1968-), Bob Welch (guitar: 1971-74), Bob Weston (guitar: 1972-73), and Dave Walker (guitar: 1972-73).
In 1975, Lindsey Buckingham (vocals, guitar: 1975-87,98-18) and Stevie Nicks (vocals: 1975-93,97,03-) joined, giving the band a more California sound and making for their most popular lineup. Other members have included Billy Burnette (guitar/vocals: 1987-93), Rick Vito (guitar/vocals: 1987-91), Bekka Bramlett (vocals: 1993-95), and Dave Mason (vocals, percussion: 1993-95).
This list was originally created in honor of Bob Welch, who passed away on June 7, 2012. It has since been updated in honor of Stevie Nicks’ birthday (born May 26, 1948) and upon Christine McVie’s death (November 30, 2022). This includes songs by Fleetwood Mac as well as its individual members.
