Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie/Stevie Nicks (p/k/a Fleetwood Mac)
Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie and Steve Nicks were together in Fleetwood Mac from 1975 to 1987, when the band enjoyed its greatest commercial success and released Rumours (1977)--one of the all-time biggest-selling albums. The classic hits “Rhiannon,” “Say You Love Me,” “Go Your Own Way, “Dreams,” “Don’t Stop,” “Tusk,” “Hold Me” and “Gypsy” all came from this period. All three writers went on to solo success, as well as induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame—with Fleetwood Mac—in 1998.
Key songs in the Buckingham/McVie/Nicks catalog include “Go Your Own Way,” “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow,” “Rhiannon,” “Over My Head” and “Dreams.”
