Think President Clinton had anything to do with this?

Even though Fleetwood Mac was inducted, I still believe that Stevie Nicks has earned an induction as a solo artist. Her talents as a singer, songwriter, and performer are unique. Her ability to continue drawing in fans of all generations and backgrounds is amazing.

One song that I can think of where the vocals AND the guitar are equally haunting and emotional is "I'm So Afraid", off of the "Fleetwood Mac" album. Lindsey Buckingham really did a good job expressing himself both vocally and with his instrument.

Lindsey Buckingham is the man. "Hold Me" credited to C. McVie is all Buckingham and one of Fleetwood Macs greatest tunes.

I agree, Lindsay Buckingham is the real genius behind Fleetwood Mac and that should be acknowledged. I don't know if his solo works earns him a solo induction, however. Maybe

Lindsey has paid homage to Mac's two earlier guiding forces live in concert. I once heard a Mac concert from 1975, when Lindsey & Stevie first joined the band. Lindsey sang Bob Welch's "Hypnotized." Five years on the "Tusk" tour, which is documented on "Fleetwood Mac Live" Lindsey sang a version of Peter Green's "Oh Well" which received a considerable amount of airplay on classic rock stations.

We all talk now about Nicks, Buckingham, the McVies etc.

I believe Christine McVie's "Songbird" from "Rumours" was inspired by Minnie Riperton's "Lovin' You" which had birds in the background. "Songbird" would take on new meaning when Ms. Riperton died on July 12, 1979, Christine's 36th birthday.

The only thing more ridiculous than this band having to wait five years for induction is the pettiness of the band in leaving out Bob Welch & Bob Weson. I'm surprised they deigned to allow Danny Kirwan to be inducted with them.

Bob Welch was the first member of Fleetwood Mac to have top 40 hits, and he did it AFTER he left the Mac, whereas Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks had solo hits while they were still members of Fleetwood Mac. Phil Collins was the first solo member of Genesis to crack the top 40 in 1981 with "I Missed Again." Peter Gabriel hit the Top 40 for the first time with "Shock The Monkey" in late '82/early '83. Mike Rutherford was next in 1986 with "Silent Running (On Dangerous Ground)" as a member of Mike & The Mechanics. Finally Steve Hackett had a Top 40 hit in mid '86 with "When the Heart Rules the Mind" as a member of GTR, a band that also included Yes/Asia guitarist Steve Howe. Collins' and Rutherford's hits came while they were still members of Genesis, whereas Gabriel's and Hackett's hits come AFTER they left Genesis. The aforementioned Steve Howe had two top 40 hits as a member of Yes with "Your Move" and "Roundabout," four top 40 hits with Asia: "Heat of The Moment," "Only Time Will Tell," "Don't Cry" and "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes" and the aforementioned GTR song. Carl Palmer had one top 40 hit as a member of ELP with "From The Beginning" and four top 40 hits with the aforementioned Asia songs.

I meant 1969 for the ABB song

Y’know, I absolutely LOVE how Sheryl Crow inducted Fleetwood Mac into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, by emphasizing on ONLY Stevie Nicks’ talent, not Bob Welch, Peter Green, John or Christine Mcvie or any other band member since 1969. Never mind the legacy left behind by the original band members Sheryl, lets just focus and ramble on of your infatuation with Steve Nicks. How typical of not only Sheryl Crow but the Hall of Fame, for such a horrible induction.

Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie/Stevie Nicks are nominated for the 2013 Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Hi Mick, you guys are great and Bob Welch was a big part of your success. Your fans would appreciate your support in getting Bob inducted into the Hall of Fame. Bob's era with the band deserves recognition. Thanks for all of the years of great music!

Just read that Christine McVie would like to rejoin Fleetwood Mac. She retired in 1998 & no one has ever thought she would want to go back (did not like the travel). She did play a one-off with band back in Sep & that seems to have given her the bug.

Saw them perform last weekend in St. Louis! (with Christine McVie) I went in thinking the show was going to be so-so, with all the hits. But boy, was I more than blown away. Every member put in more than their 100 percent in the show. They did pretty much every hit from their classic era (1976-87), and just about every song from 'Rumours'. Mick Fleetwood can still bang the drums and go crazy at the same time! Much of the attention was focused on Christine McVie, who 'retired' from the group 16 years back, but she was glad to be part of the band again. All 3 of the vocalists were great. Definitely one of the greatest concerts I've attended in a while!

Wow, Jason! Glad you got to see them. With Christie, too. Sure want to see them someday.
