Fleetwood Mac Plays for Clinton at W. House

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Rock group Fleetwood Mac reunited at the White House to surprise President Clinton at the end of his eight-year term with songs such as "Don't Stop," his 1992 campaign theme, and another fitting tune, "Go Your Own Way," White House officials said Sunday.

The surprise concert Saturday capped a farewell party thrown for Clinton by his political staff that also included skits and videos produced by different White House offices. Current and former political aides attended the bash, held in a pavilion on the South Lawn of the White House, officials said.

They said the concert was a total surprise for Clinton.

The popular 1970s rock group no longer tours together, but reunited in 1997 for a concert tour and CD release. Saturday's reunion did not include Christine McVie, said the band's publicist, Mitch Schneider.

Schneider said the group, originally formed in London in 1967 with Mick Fleetwood and John McVie making up the rhythm section, also played "Dreams," "Landslide" and "Gypsy," at the White House.
