About Mick Fleetwood
Michael John Kells "Mick" Fleetwood puts the Fleetwood in Fleetwood Mac. The British musician and actor is (and forever will be) known for his role as the drummer of one of the most iconic bands to come out of the 1960s. Through decades of hit songs and plenty of turmoil, Mick has stayed the course to make Fleetwood Mac a household name.
If you want to talk turbulence, there is none more widely known than what occurred during Fleetwood Mac's rise to stardom. Just six years after co-founding the band with Peter Green (guitar) and John McVie, Fleetwood's marriage dissolved after it was discovered that his wife was having an affair with Mac guitarist Bob Weston. Despite the deceit, Fleetwood continued playing with the band while also periodically issuing solo projects.
Fleetwood's official solo debut album, "The Visitor," was released in 1981. It was followed by 1983's "I'm Not Me," but neither project was enough to keep the man afloat. He filed for bankruptcy in 1987, prompting a reunion LP from the band called "Tango in the Night." It was the spark to keep versions of the band going through the 90s, though they didn't really enjoy the commercial success until a full-fledged Fleetwood Mac reunion on 1997's "The Dance."
Minus Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac recently spent two months at Village Recorder studio in Los Angeles working in the same room where they recorded their 1979 album "Tusk." According to various reports, they've finished at least eight songs for a possible new album. The group will also reunite for live rehearsals in July ahead of their upcoming world tour.
