The mid 80’s we’re both good and bad for Fleetwood Mac. Mirage had a handful of hits in “Hold Me” and “Gypsy”. They completed a short tour as well that year.

The break was much needed given that all was not well beneath the surface. Mick filed for bankruptcy in 84, Nicks was admitted to the Betty Ford Clinic in 86 for her cocaine addiction and the next year John McVie suffered an alcohol-induced seizure. Many thought that was the end to Fleetwood Mac. A cover Christine McVie recorded for a movie was the spark they all needed.

Things didn’t run smoothly right away as Nicks was in and out the picture dealing with substances abuse issues and promoting her solo album. Christine divorced John for a decade.

Finally “Little Lies” was released as a third single from Tango in the Night. It hit No. 4 on the billboard hot 100 quickly. It remained Fleetwood Mac’s most recent top 10 hit in the U.S. for decades.
