The Fleetwood Mac Variations

In writing about Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Mick Fleetwood, Jeremy Spencer, John McVie, Christine McVie, and other related players and topics, it is useful to have a way to delineate what version of the band is being discussed and where it fits in the band’s 55-year chronology. These are the iterations I use. This includes players on the group’s albums. It does not include others who have performed as live backup musicians in recent years. Album reviews are currently available for Kiln House, Future Games, and Bare Trees.
