Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac from "Fleetwood Mac" Album
Rhiannon | Fleetwood Mac
Live performances of the song were sometimes prefaced with Nicks saying, “This is a song about an old Welsh witch.” During 1975–1980, Fleetwood Mac’s live performances of “Rhiannon” took on a theatrical intensity not present on the FM-radio single. The song built to a climax in which Nicks’ vocals were so impassioned that, as drummer and band co-founder Mick Fleetwood said, “her Rhiannon in those days was like an exorcism.”
