Mick Fleetwood

June 24, 1942, London, England

Aside from his work as a drummer, he also helped form the different incarnations of his band Fleetwood Mac, and is the sole member to stay with the band through its ever-changing lineup. In 1974, he met and invited Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks to join Fleetwood Mac. Buckingham and Nicks contributed to much of Fleetwood Mac's later commercial success, while Fleetwood's determination to keep the band together was essential to the group's longevity. ~ Wikipedia: Mick Fleetwood ~ retrieved June 13, 2013 © Wikipedia

Fleetwood Mac

The only thing about Fleetwood Mac that hasn't changed since the band formed in 1967 is the rhythm section of Mick Fleetwood and John ‘Mac’ McVie - fitting, since the band is named after those two. Through the Seventies, the band's personnel and style shifted with nearly every recording as Fleetwood Mac metamorphosed from a traditionalist British blues band to the maker of one of the best-selling pop albums ever, Rumours, then kept on for decades after that - to varying degrees of success. ~ Rolling Stone: Fleetwood Mac ~ retrieved October 23, 2013 © Rolling Stone
