Weird but cool to see Fleetwood Mac earning above pink Floyd. But understandable at that time.

FM made more than half of what Chicken Shack made. That puts things in perspective!

500 pounds in 1969 equals an excess of 10,000 pounds today. So, Mac was raking it in.

I wonder if they were doing blow back then? I mean, acid is cheap.

Sorry to be pedantic…. Fleetwood Mac made more than twice as much as Chicken Shack
