"Forty years after their inception in 1967, Brackett recounts the history of the band Fleetwood Mac, from their blues roots and the addition of Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks, to their albums Rumours and Tusk. He also critically assesses their contribution to rock music, addresses their relationships with each other and how this affected the band, and looks at specific albums and songs from each era." - SciTech Book News
