Rock Talk With Carter: How Four Guitarists Succumbed to The Fleetwood Mac Curse

by Alisha Jackson

On August 12th of 1967, Fleetwood Mac made its live debut at the Windsor Jazz and Blues Festival in England. They shared the stage that day with Cream, Donovan and Pink Floyd.

When you think of Fleetwood Mac, you probably don’t think of blues. But the original lineup of the band, also known as Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, was a legitimate part of the British blues boom. Unfortunately, the band’s first four guitarists didn’t stick around long to enjoy the success, as they all succumbed to an unexplained curse. It may sound fictional, but Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer, and Danny Kirwan all faced life-changing hardships during their time in the band. And the band’s fourth guitarist, Bob Welch, faced death.
