You Might Not Have Known...

Fleetwood Mac was a great blues band before the mainstream success of the "Stevie Nicks era"

I think their early stuff with Peter Green is really fucking good, but as time went on, he left the band due to mental illness (scizophrania caused from LSD) and they started getting out of the blues, expanding into other areas and into the sound that most people know them for today.

"Black Magic Woman" (wasn't a hit until Santana covered it)
