Fleetwood Mac Keeping Time With Rolex

Fleetwood Mac
Keeping Time With Rolex

Fleetwood Mac is one of the most successful and iconic bands in history. Fleetwood Mac's blockbuster album, which was released in February of 1977 is considered to be one of the best selling albums of all time, only being outsold by Michael Jackson's Thriller and The Eagles Greatest Hits (1971-1975).

I remember the first time I ever saw Fleetwood Mac play live. It was on July 24,1976, at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. I remember how amazing their music was and I remember how sexy and mesmerizing Stevie Nicks was on stage.

The video below, shot in 1977 features Fleetwood Mac singing their hit song "Dreams."

"Thunder Only Happens When It's Raining. Players only love you when their playing."

At least four of Fleetwood Mac's members wear Rolex watches as seen below. Let's begin by looking at Stevie Nicks wearing a two-tone ladies Datejust.
