At 18, the Worcester, England native was one of the founding members of the group Traffic when he penned the song "Feelin' Alright". This song has since become a rock and roll anthem having been recorded by well over 300 artists. The group's profound influence over rock music remains unquestioned even today.

In 1969 Dave moved to the USA to pursue a solo career and put out four gold Albums; "Alone Together", "Dave Mason", "Let It Flow" and "Mariposa De Oro". He has also performed of many classic rock albums such as The Rolling Stones' "Beggars Banquet", George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass", Paul McCartney's "Listen To What the Man Said" and Jimi Hendrix's "Electric Ladyland", which features Dave playing guitar alongside Jimi on the Bob Dylan hit "All Along the Watchtower".

In 1993, Dave formally joined the legendary group Fleetwood Mac and spent two years touring the world with them. In '96 he returned to touring with his own band which has included Three Dog Night bassist Rich Campbell and ex-Traffic band-mate Jim Capaldi.

On March 15, 2004 he was officially inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
