I miss Maui," said Mick Fleetwood


"I miss Maui," said Mick Fleetwood over the phone from Chicago. Fleetwood and John McVie, who lives on Oahu, have reunited with their Fleetwood Mac bandmates for a "Greatest Hits Unleashed North American Tour."

Fleetwood Mac is readying a special DVD/CD boxed edition of their 1977 album, "Rumours," which has sold 30 million copies already.

The band's four dates into the tour. "Business is incredible," notes Mick. "We are truly blessed to have loyal fans in this strange economic time." But, he notes, both he and McVie now have "too thin blood" to be happy in cold climes.

He's going to take advantage of a break in the Fleetwood Mac touring schedule to fly back and do a few island dates with Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, the members of which now, like Fleetwood, live on Maui. Their "Blues Again" album, not yet released as a CD, climbed to No. 18 on the iTunes sales chart immediately after release.

Also, from BlogTalkRadio - here's an interview with Mick Fleetwood from March 6th to promote his "Blue Again" cd to be released March 17th. Mick speaks briefly about how the Fleetwood Mac tour is going and how they are getting along.
