Fleetwood Mac – The Artist/s

Fleetwood Mac are a British-American rock band, formed in London in 1967. They have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the world’s best-selling bands. Fleetwood Mac was founded by guitarist Peter Green, drummer Mick Fleetwood and guitarist Jeremy Spencer. Bassist John McVie completed the lineup for their self-titled debut album. At this time it was primarily a British blues band, and after a series of guitarist changes they where replaced by Lindsey Buckingham from folk-rock duo Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Buckingham only agreed to join Fleetwood Mac if Stevie Nicks also joined. The addition of Buckingham and Nicks gave the band a more pop rock sound, and their 1975 self-titled album, Fleetwood Mac, reached No. 1.

Gypsy – The Song

‘Gypsy’ is a song by the rock group Fleetwood Mac. Written by Stevie Nicks around 1979, the earliest demo recordings were made in early 1980 with Tom Moncrieff for possible inclusion on her debut solo album Bella Donna. However, when Nicks’ friend Robin Anderson died of leukemia, the song took on a new significance and Nicks held it over for Fleetwood Mac. “Gypsy” was the second single release and second biggest hit from the Mirage album. In 2017, Nicks recorded an acoustic version to serve as the theme song for the Netflix drama series Gypsy. There are two points of inspiration behind “Gypsy”, as stated by Stevie Nicks, the first of which is a point of nostalgia for her: her life before Fleetwood Mac. During this period she lived with  Lindsey Buckingham and was broke and struggling to make a living. They could not afford a bed frame, so they slept on a single mattress, directly on the floor. Nicks says the mattress was decorated in lace, with a vase and a flower at its side. Now whenever she feels her famous life getting to her, she goes “back to her roots,” and takes her mattress off the frame and puts it “back to the floor” and decorates it with “some lace, and paper flowers.” It takes her back to the days when she had no wealth—back to herself as a poor gypsy. Some speculate the rest of this song is directed at Buckingham, assuming the lyrics depict her leaving him.

The Gypsy Woman – The Shape

This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a gypsy woman dancing in a traditional dress. The English term gipsy or gypsy is commonly used to indicate Romani people, Tinkers and Travellers, and use of the word gipsy in modern-day English is so pervasive that some Romani organisations use it in their own organisational names. Gipsy has several developing and overlapping meanings under English Law. Under the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960, gipsies are defined as “persons of nomadic habit of life, whatever their race or origin, but does not include members of an organised group of travelling showmen, or persons engaged in travelling circuses, travelling together as such”. The definition includes such groups as New Age Travellers as well as Irish Travellers and Romany.
