Although he's best known as the drummer for the hugely popular Fleetwood Mac - their 1977 album Rumours has sold over 30 million copies (not too shabby) - Mick Fleetwood cut his musical teeth in London clubs as a member of John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, where he would meet his eventual rhythm section partner, bassist John McVie.
Fleetwood and McVie had many lean years guiding Fleetwood Mac through a succession of lineup changes. Blues gave way to the sunny sounds of California pop with the addition of guitarist-singer Lindsey Buckingham and starry-eyed vocalist Stevie Nicks, and the rest, of course, is Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame history. From 1975, Fleetwood Mac have been the definitive mega-band: big albums, big tour and even bigger drama.
This March, Fleetwood Mac will embark on their 'Unleashed' greatest hits tour, but it's no last hurrah:They've already indicated a desire to write and record new material as soon as time permits. Speaking of time, next week, Mick Fleetwood is going to sit down with MusicRadar for a podcast interview, and this is your chance to ask him a question.
