When asked by one of the MSL blog contributors which song would be my tune of choice this summer, I found that picking just one song was a real struggle. For me soft rock blues band, Fleetwood Mac are the soundtrack to all my summers, now and forever.

Fleetwood Mac embody evertything I love about music and lead vocalist, Stevie Nicks, just so happens to be my ultimate style icon. So in a bid to brighten up the week, I give you to a selection of photographs depicting Stevie in some of her signature boho hippie get-ups and some of the bands greatest hits that have me wishing I was around in the 70s.


Fleetwood Mac – Dreams

 ‘Dreams’ details Stevie Nicks’ breakup from ex boyfriend and very current band member, Lindsey Bukingham. “When the rain washes you clean you’ll know” Nicks’ has a hopeful message for her past love in this poetic song.

Fleetwood Mac – Go Your Own Way

‘Go Your Own Way’ was Lindsay Buckingham’s more pessimistic come-back song to Stevie Nicks’ optimistic, ‘Dreams’. His hard hitting lyrics, “Packing up, shacking up is all you wanna do” didn’t sit well with Nicks’, who claims she never forgave him for this lyrical attack.

Fleetwood Mac – Rhiannon

This was Stevie Nicks’ breakthrough. Written before she joined the band, the track was first featured on Fleetwood Mac’s self-titled album and was soon made a single. Nicks’ impassioned live performances of the track were a sight to behold.

Fleetwood Mac – Tusk

Opening with a chanted “Why don’t you ask him if he’s going to stay?” before moving into a shriek of “Just tell me that you want me”, ‘Tusk’ is paranoid, aggressive, and totally brilliant.

From the album ‘Tusk’, 1979.


Reunited and back on tour this summer, Fleetwood Mac will one again take the world my storm. The the legendary band grace the O2 with their muscial presence this September, so get your tickets and I will see you there.
