My condolences to Mick Fleetwood and family on the passing of Mick's Mother

Richard Dashut (Rumours Co-Producer/Engineer) posted to his Truth and Consequences Tumblr blog today his personal message of condolence following the confirmation that Mick's mother has passed away.

RIP Bridget Maureen Fleetwood (Biddy)

"I’m sorry to report that I have just received personal confirmation from Mick Fleetwood, that his Mother, Bridget Maureen Fleetwood, has passed away at the age of 98 1/2. If you want to know the origins to the character of Fleetwood Mac, you need look no further than Mick’s Mum for that answer. From all of the Punters on this blog and myself at the head of that list, we salute the life of one of the most extraordinary women to ever walk the face of this planet. This is not Biddy’s world anymore, but heaven has a new Mum and we still have Fleetwood Mac! Biddy, may you rest in the eternal peace of death, you have earned in life and I shall carry your memory in my back pocket, for the rest of my days."



So sorry Mick!

I don't know if this will affect the next few shows or not. I'll keep you posted if an official statement is made or if any shows are postponed.

Mick, you were a jewel when you came into her life. Your mom left you with a treasure box, filled with memories, glazed with love. Keep your treasure box open......you both live with a love that a mom and son have, completely. Much love, Carolynn Wood

So sorry for the loss of your Mum, Mick. I was in Boston this past October when you announced her birthday at that concert. You said she had been in the old Boston Garden which brought a big smile to my face. Thanks for that picture. Hold her close in your heart. PEACE, Elizabeth

When my father passed away , keeping his love with me kept him with me. My mother is 98 and in decline and the inevitable will come. Hopefully her love will keep her with my sisters and me. Hope that is the case with you and your family.Peace and love to you

Mick,

I am sorry to hear about your mother. My mom is 91 and I wake every day in wonder how many more days she has here to be with me. You can rest assured that you will see her again and that this world is just a start and many more days, weeks, months, and years remain when we all meet again. I want to thank you, Stevie, Christine, John, and Lindsey for your years of great and fantastic music. My wife and I loved the show in Atlanta and can't wait to see you and the band in a few weeks. Something weird I want to say to you....I was looking at a photo of you from the late 70's and looked at my 24 year old stepson and I swear you two look so much alike. This on top of the fact that his mother looks so much like Stevie. The Mac lives with me every day!!!!
