Initially conceived as a hard-edged British blues combo in the late '60s, Fleetwood Mac relocated to California, added the soft rock duo of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks to their lineup in the mid-'70s, and became one of the most popular groups of the late '70s. Combining soft rock with the confessional introspection of singer/songwriters, Fleetwood Mac created a slick but emotional sound that helped 1977's Rumours become one of the biggest-selling albums of all time. The band retained its popularity through the early '80s, when Buckingham, Nicks, and Christine McVie all began pursuing solo careers. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
