Formed in 1967, Fleetwood Mac was born out of the British blues revival movement, led by guitarist/singer Peter Green, originally from the legendary John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, which included other distinguished British rockers of the 60s and 70s, such as Eric Clapton and Mick Taylor among them, and drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie, whose surnames would inspire the band’s name.
Making their debut as Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac at the British Jazz and Blues Festival in 1967, Green, Fleetwood, McVie, and Jeremy Spencer landed their first Top Five hit on the UK Albums Chart in 1968 with their self-titled debut album and charted with their singles “Black Magic Woman” (later covered by Carlos Santana), “Need Your Love So Bad” and their first #1 hit on the UK charts “Albatross,” from their album The Pious Bird of Good Omen
. During this time and throughout the early 1970s, the group’s roster of musicians would shift and sound would evolve towards mainstream rock, with the departure of founding front man Peter Green, and his replacement of Chicken Shack keyboardist and vocalist, Christine Perfect, who would marry Mac bassist John McVie and join the band officially for their fifth studio album, Future Games
After the departure of founding member Jeremy Spencer and many other personnel changes, the group led by co-founder Mick Fleetwood and the McVie’s moved to California in 1974 to put down roots and develop a new sound. In 1975, the band was introduced to the folk-rock album Buckingham Nicks
consisting of guitarist Lindsey Buckingham and vocalist Stevie Nicks. The duo was invited by Fleetwood to join the band and complete the legendary five-person, three-songwriter line-up most known today as the British-American pop-rock band, Fleetwood Mac, who would captivate audiences all over the world and shatter sales records for decades to come.
“Julien’s Auctions is honored to offer this exceptional collection of music history coming directly from the legendary three members of one of the most influential and rock and roll bands of all time, Fleetwood Mac,” said Martin Nolan, Executive Director and CFO of Julien’s Auctions. “These pieces from their storied five-decade career represent the mystique and magic of Christine McVie, John McVie, and Mick Fleetwood, whose renowned musicianship, songwriting, vocal harmonies and camaraderie, have given the world a lifetime of illustrious performances and some of the most beloved and best-selling music ever recorded. We are also pleased to announce that a portion of the auction proceeds will benefit MusiCares, who honored Fleetwood Mac in 2018, as the organization’s Person of the Year, to support the charity’s work providing critical services to underserved members of the music community.”
