The Chain: 50 Years of Fleetwood Mac (Hardcover)
Fifty years later, as they prepare for their gigantic farewell world tour throughout 2018, they remain one of the biggest bands of all time - a position they have held since 1977 when, with the help of John's wife, Christine McVie, and two virtually unknown American musicians called Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, they released an LP titled Rumours that went on to become the world's best-selling album. That, in itself, is a remarkable story. Now consider the highs and lows, the successes and failures, the personal turmoil, tragedy and heartbreak through which this band has journeyed over the last 50 years ... and the story of Fleetwood Mac becomes one of pure drama. The greatest ever rock 'n' roll soap opera.
Pete Chrisp has worked as a writer and editor for newspapers, magazines and books since 1979. His first book, co-written with the musician Gerry McAvoy, was the highly acclaimed Riding Shotgun: 35 Years on the Road with Rory Gallagher and Nine Below Zero. He lives in Kent, England.
