Fleetwood Mac Play Farewell Gig For Clinton

Band performs 'Don't Stop' — president's 1992 campaign theme — and other hits at surprise party.

Fleetwood Mac helped outgoing president Bill Clinton get ready to go his own way at a surprise gig on Saturday at the White House.

The band, which hasn't toured or released an album since 1997, played a farewell party organized by Clinton's political staff, according to Reuters. In addition to "Go Your Own Way," Fleetwood Mac played "Don't Stop" (RealAudio excerpt), the song that served as Clinton's campaign theme in 1992. The group also played the song at one of Clinton's inaugural parties in 1993.

Originally formed as a blues-rock outfit with guitarist Peter Green in 1967, a revamped Fleetwood Mac with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham helped define California rock in the 1970s with such hits as "Dreams" (RealAudio excerpt), which was also on Saturday night's setlist along with "Landslide" and "Gypsy," according to the news service.

Spokespeople for Fleetwood Mac could not be reached for comment Monday morning (January 8).
