Today in rock history; Stones and Ministry release live records, Buckingham & Nicks' Fleetwood Mac goes no. 1, more
Today in rock history
: on this date in 1976, the self-titled Fleetwood Mac album that boasted the band’s brand new lineup eased its way into the no. 1 spot on Billboard’s sales charts in the U.S. After a slow and steady climb towards the top spot after more than a year, the record — which was Mac’s first to feature brand new band members Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks — hit the coveted no. 1 spot and became the first of three consecutive chart-toppers this formation of the band would enjoy. The album features the massive Fleetwood Mac singles “Over My Head,” “Say You Love Me” and “Rhiannon.” and it ushered in a whole new era for the former blues band who would from this point going forward would become one of the best-selling and popular rock bands all around the world.
