Rock Of Aged: ’70s Rock Bands, Where Are They Now?

The ’70s is one of the greatest music decades of all time. Some of the most progressive rock and blues sounds came out of this iconic era, created by a throng of talented, prolific rock’n’roll artists. In tribute, Doyouremember.com is taking a look back at the best rock bands of the ’70s and where they are today… starting with the legendary Fleetwood Mac. Read on!

Fleetwood Mac

Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks and John McVie make up the inimitable and incredibly successful band Fleetwood Mac, who were inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. Ethereal singer Stevie Nicks stole the show with her one-of-a-kind vocals, but each member contributed their own musical magic. Their biggest albums have been “Tusk,” “Rumors” and “Tango in the Night.” From songs like “Go Your Own Way” to “Rhiannon,” the group has churned out a ton of lush, bluesy hits. Stevie also famously dated Lindsey from 1968 until the late ’70s and was briefly linked to Mick in 1977 — causing a big rift in the band.

Fleetwood Mac is one of the few bands of the ’70s that still perform together after all this time. They’ve had plenty of drama on-and-off but have been able to work through it. Christine McVie took the longest break from the band — a 15-year hiatus — and rejoined in 2015. In June 2017, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine released an album of duets. Stevie Nicks and the classic “Rumors”-era lineup of Fleetwood Mac are set to reunite in 2018 for a world tour — but don’t expect a new Fleetwood Mac album anytime soon. Stevie told Rolling Stone in March 2017, “I don’t think we’ll do another record. If the music business were different, I might feel differently. What we do is go on the road, do a ton of shows and make lots of money. We have a lot of fun. Making a record isn’t all that much fun.”
