UMPG represent Fleetwood Mac for songs written by Christine McVie.

While most bands undergo a number of changes over the course of their careers, few groups experienced such radical stylistic changes as FLEETWOOD MAC. Initially conceived as a hard-edged British blues combo in the late '60s, the band gradually evolved into a polished pop/rock act over the course of a decade.

Throughout all of their incarnations, the only consistent members of Fleetwood Mac were drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie - the rhythm section that provided the band with its name. Originally, guitarists Peter Green and  Jeremy Spencer provided the band with its gutsy, neo-psychedelic blues-rock sound, but the group began moving toward pop/rock with the songwriting of pianist Christine McVie.

By the mid '70s, Fleetwood Mac had relocated to California, where they added the soft rock duo of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks to their lineup. Obsessed with the meticulously arranged pop of the Beach Boys and the Beatles, the band become one of the most popular groups of the late '70s.

Their self-titled 1975 album slowly became a huge hit, reaching number one in  the US in 1976, followed by 1977’s ‘Rumour’s’ which went on to become one of the biggest-selling albums of all time, topping the charts in several countries around the world.

McVie was responsible for some of the band’s most popular hits including ‘Over My Head’, ‘Say You Love Me’, ‘Don’t Stop’, ‘You Make Loving Fun’, ‘Everywhere’ and 'Little Lies’.
