“Don’t Stop”, a hit tune on the band’s popular 1977 album “Rumours”, became the unofficial theme song of Mr. Clinton’s presidential campaign.


The song was played at Clinton’s campaign appearances & repeatedly at the 1992 Democratic Convention, as well as Election night 1992 when Mr. Clinton won a decisive victory over incumbent George H.W. Bush.


It has been more than five years since Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie & Stevie Nicks have performed on stage together.


The band, which was formed in London in 1967,  was named for Mick Fleetwood (drummer) & John McVie* (bassist) by founder, Peter Green.

           “Don’t Stop”


“Why not think about times to come
  And not about the things you’ve done
  If your life was bad to you
  Just think what tomorrow will do”


“Don’t stop thinkin’ about tomorrow
  Don’t stop it’ll soon be here
  It’ll be better than before
  Yesterdays gone, yesterdays gone”
