Fleetwood Mac is still great and I love listening to them. Who are the members of the group and are any of them married?
—Janice S., Texas

The current version of the popular and enduring group includes drummer Mick Fleetwood, bass player John McVie, singer Stevie Nicks, and guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, who reunited for Say You Will, released in April of this year on Reprise Records. The original Fleetwood Mac, which released the 1967 album by that name, consisted of Peter Green, Fleetwood, Jeremy Spencer, and McVie. Probably the group's most successful line-up was Fleetwood, Nicks, John and Christine McVie, and Buckingham. They recorded the phenomenally successful Rumours album, which sold more than 25 million copies. Retired keyboard player Christine McVie, now living in England, did not reunite with the group for this effort. She did go along for the ride on the 1997 reunion tour and concert album The Dance. As for marital status, you probably know the romantic breakup of Nicks and Buckingham provided material for Rumours, while Christine McVie and John McVie worked together for years after they divorced. Buckingham, Fleetwood, and John McVie are all married. Nicks is single. "Somehow we've always managed to stay in touch with the spirit of Fleetwood Mac," Fleetwood says. "Let's face it, we're not all just saying hello to each other, we're connected very deeply. It's been a seamless journey; it's just the logistics that sometimes need working out."
