The biggest feuds in music
Fleetwood Mac has a long history of in-fighting starting just three years into their long career. Nine years later, in 1976, the band experienced their darkest time as pressures became too much and their relationships strained. John McVie, the bassist, and drummer Mick Fleetwood were both going through divorces, as the rest of the group started to fall apart. Their trials led to their 1977 album Rumours which chronicled their rocky times.
Besides being their iconic lead singer, Paul McCartney took on the role of the Beatles’ manager in 1967. This led to severe artistic differences between McCartney and co-writer, co-vocalist and guitarist John Lennon. Adding fuel to the fire was Lennon’s relationship with Yoko Ono, as he allowed her into the studio to make comments and suggestions while the band was recording, which agitated the rest of the group. However, all four of the Beatles went on to have successful solo careers following the split.
