Rock Rewind: Fleetwood Mac “Go Your Own Way”

Every once in awhile, it’s fun to look back in music history (whether or not you were alive to see it) and pick out some gems. “Go Your Own Way” is one of my absolute favorite Fleetwood Mac tunes, so I found a great live performance vid to share below.

Fleetwood Mac is one of those bands that has followed a long, winding road, with a variety of personnel changes, disbanding and re-banding, and controversies all along the way. But behind it all, four key band members (Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham) have not only defined Fleetwood Mac, but have become rock icons in their own rights.

“Go Your Own Way” was written by Lindsey Buckingham as an honest expression about complications in his relationship with Stevie Nicks. It appeared on the Rumours album and has been listed on The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time by Rolling Stone Magazine. To me, this song represents the pinnacle of Fleetwood Mac’s long career as a band.

The members of Fleetwood Mac are all keeping busy; Stevie Nicks released a new solo album last year, and Lindsey Buckingham recently announced new solo tour dates. By the way, Fleetwood Mac is still officially a band, and “rumours” are that we can expect tour dates from the band this year, as well. In the meantime, enjoy the video below, captured from the band’s 1997 tour.

About the Author

on MUSIC IS MY OXYGEN WEEKLY.

Tim Ferrar's interest in pop and rock started as a child, listening to Top-40 radio for hours on end while playing air guitar in his bedroom. Eventually air guitar led to electric guitar, and Tim began playing in bands and writing his own songs. With an admitted weakness for "a great hook or a great guitar riff," Tim's musical tastes are broad and varied, ranging from Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga on the pop side to Bon Jovi and Foo Fighters on the rock side- making him the ideal guy to cover our Rock and Pop categories. By day, Tim is a mild-mannered accountant in Chicago. By night, he rocks out on electric guitar in a cover band in various clubs around town- much to the surprise of some of his clients.
