After reading Eric Clapton's book a long time ago, I have a HUGE appreciation for what he's done for Stevie. I think she appreciates it too.
The rhythm section is definitely the MVP of Fleetwood Mac. And John may very well be the band's unsung hero. In addition to the already mentioned great examples...his bass line in Go Your Own Way is amazing. His input makes most of the songs what they are without being done in a way that the casual listener would even realize it. And in concert, I always want that bass line interlude in The Chain to go on for about 10 more bars.
