Marital discord and divorce. Substance abuse problems and mental illness. Religious sects and hedonistic excess. Fleetwood Mac has been known throughout its 27-year run as much for its "Geraldo"-fodder history and ever-changing personnel as it has for being among the most popular, top-grossing groups in rock.

For a notoriously perfectionist band like Fleetwood Mac, it shouldn't come as a big surprise that its live show leaves nothing to chance. Fleetwood Mac's 2013 tour, which wraps up with a final run of shows this week in California, is built around a song list that's gone virtually unchanged since the concert run began in April. "We're not one of those bands that throws the names of all their songs in a hat and pulls them out right before they go on stage," guitarist, songwriter and singer Lindsey Buckingham said last week from a tour stop in Charlotte, N.C. (Buckingham and the band play Staples Center Wednesday.)

Only a band as famously twisted as Fleetwood Mac would follow an exhortation to “get this party started” with a song as bleakly imagined as “Dreams.” That's the indelible 1977 smash in which Stevie Nicks warns a capricious lover about hearing “the sound of your loneliness like a heartbeat,” and Saturday night at the Hollywood Bowl, Fleetwood Mac performed it near the beginning of a sold-out concert that Nicks said represented the group's happy...

Guitarist and singer Bob Welch, whose work in the early 1970s for Fleetwood Mac set the stage for the band's multi-platinum success later in the decade, died on Thursday at his home in Nashville. He was 66. According to a spokesman for the Nashville Police Department, Welch was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest. The spokesman said Welch's wife, Wendy, told police he had been suffering from health issues. Welch joined Fleetwood Mac in 1971 as a 24-year-old living in Paris, just as the group was making the transition away from being a British blues rock band and into the 1970s commercial powerhouse that it became.

Along with a bride of 8 months, Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac has been sharing his Malibu digs with Pete Bardens, one-time leader of a band called Camel, and that's just for openers: Fleetwood also is sharing his manager with Bardens, lent his drumming to tracks on the keyboard player's "Speed of Light" album, and now is sandwiching 11 far-flung Bardens concert appearances (including one at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano tonight) between new Fleetwood Mac recording sessions.

These days, Mick Fleetwood is playing drums on the next Fleetwood Mac album . . . and making his acting debut in a film based on a Stephen King story . . . and writing his autobiography. But that still leaves a few odd moments of free time and the lanky, 44-year-old rock veteran doesn't like sitting around.

If the sellout crowds and critical thumbs-ups are any indication, Fleetwood Mac has been a part of a great night out for a lot of people lately. Twenty years after the release of the veteran band's monstrously successful "Rumours" album, its reunited classic lineup--Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks--is on the road, garnering enough popular support and positive reviews to quiet any skeptics who doubted the group's ability to reinvigorate itself.

Stevie Nicks had hoped to make it to Friday night at the Forum before the tears started falling. That's when she and Christine McVie apparently will be making their last appearance as full-time members of Fleetwood Mac. Though the two are slated to contribute to the next Mac album, the Inglewood Forum concert will mark the end of an era for a group that ruled the pop charts in the late '70s, with the two women as the public focal points.

OK all you MacRumour Mongers, here's the whole story: the sex, the drugs, the partner-swapping, the comings-and-goings, the schizophrenia, the bankruptcies and, oh yes, the great music that is, was and apparently forever shall be the big Mac. Fleetwood tells the story as if he was sitting in your living room, which is good for the intimacy of the tale, but bad for the rambling, sometimes redundant telling.
