I don't dislike Fleetwood Mac, but I find it kind of lame that they seem to be a growing reference point among indie circles.

I object, as I have always voiced my belief that Florence and the Machine could be good at paying tribute to Fleetwood Mac. Only, I don't mean that as a compliment.

If you check out a lot of indie-pop groups out there today, it does seem a lot of them found their mom's copy of Tusk and decided to form their whole band around it.

Is it time for another "Fleetwood Mac was the greatest blues band ever until they ruined it by going commercial" vs. "They were an overrated jam band until the cocaine hit Stevie's anus and sparked TRUE genius" debate already?

FTFA: "Arguably it was Courtney Love who first rehabilitated Fleetwood Mac".

Does "arguably" mean "it is insane to think ..."?

Courtney Love rehabilitating Fleetwood Mac is like crediting Steven Seagal for convincing folks that Laurence Olivier was a pretty good actor.

I've never investigated the pre-pop Fleetwood Mac, but by all accounts they were pretty good. Commerical Fleetwood Mac was a perfect storm of competent musicianship, artistic psychosexual tensions, drug use, pop hooks, and the apex of late 70s analog studio production.

It's fun to watch folks "rediscover" bands that the fashionably young gave up on when "greed was good."

I thought it WAS a tribute band.

I like Fleetwood Mac, but that's really an accurate description. They were ok.
They're less ok without Christine McVie

Peter Green!!!!

Fleetwood Bleech is overplayed and Stevie Nicks always reminds me of a singing sheep.

You're thinking of Kings of Leon

They were barely scraping by, then they had two monster albums, then they intenionally threw it away with Tusk. That's not selling out. And if Peter Green ever went to Chicago, he would not be one of the 50 best bluesman in Chicago.
By the way, Chicago. There's a band that sold out.
