The essential, illustrated, song-by-song story of one of the most enduring acts in rock music history.
Fleetwood Mac is one of the most successful bands of all time. Despite a long and complicated history, the band has survived dysfunction on a scale that would see many others implode, and remains a perennial favourite across generations.
Formed in London, in 1967 by guitarist Peter Green, drummer Mick Fleetwood and guitarist Jeremy Spencer, Fleetwood Mac started life as a British blues band. Core member John McVie joined the line-up for their self-titled debut album, and then in 1970, McVie’s wife Christine Perfect joined as a keyboardist and vocalist.
Following further line-up changes, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined in 1975, giving the band a more melodic rock-pop sound, and bringing global success, most notably with Rumours (1977); to date it has sold more than forty million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time.
Fleetwood Mac: Everywhere charts the band's remarkable journey from club-based blues band to global superstars, concluding with the tragic death of Christine McVie in late 2022. Illustrated throughout, this definitive book is a must-have celebration of one of the most enduring acts in rock music history.
