Mick Fleetwood

June 24, 1942, London, England

Mick Fleetwood is best known for his tremendous success as the drummer of Fleetwood Mac, the wildly successful band he co-founded in 1967 with fellow John Mayall alumni Peter Green (guitar) and John McVie (bass). Although the turmoil of the band's meteoric rise to superstardom is well-known, Fleetwood himself lost his marriage after it was discovered in 1973 that his wife was having an affair with Mac guitarist Bob Weston. Nevertheless, he continued playing with Fleetwood Mac for multiple decades while periodically issuing solo recordings. ~ Allmusic: Mick Fleetwood ~ retrieved June 12, 2013 © Allmusic

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
