ADVERTISEMENTS

Fleetwood Mac are a British-American rock band formed in July 1967, in London. The band have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time. In 1998, selected members of Fleetwood Mac were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

The two most successful periods for the band were during the late 1960s British blues boom, when they were led by guitarist Peter Green and achieved a UK number one with “Albatross”; and from 1975 to 1987, as a more pop-oriented act, featuring Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Fleetwood Mac’s second album after the incorporation of Buckingham and Nicks, 1977’s Rumours, produced four U.S. Top 10 singles.

“Silver Springs” is a song written by Stevie Nicks and performed by Fleetwood Mac. It was originally intended for the band’s 1977 album Rumours, but became a B-side to the song “Go Your Own Way”, and a live version was eventually released as a single from the 1997 album The Dance. Written by Stevie Nicks, “Silver Springs” was originally intended for the album Rumours. Years after the fact, Nicks commented that the song’s exclusion from the album marked a growing tension in the band.

The track’s content reportedly came from the ending of the romantic relationship between Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham. She has said, I wrote “Silver Springs” about Lindsey. And we were in Maryland somewhere driving under a freeway sign that said Silver Spring, Maryland. And I loved the name … Silver Springs sounded like a pretty fabulous place to me. And, ‘You could be my silver springs…’, that’s just a whole symbolic thing of what you could have been to me.
