co-founder of Fleetwood Mac, Mick Fleetwood wants to make at least one more album before they "shut up shop"


Fleetwood Mac co-founder hopes for one final album
The drummer and co-founder of Fleetwood Mac, Mick Fleetwood, has said he wants to make at least one more album before they "shut up shop".

In an interview with Absolute Radio, Fleetwood said: “I don’t know whether it is five years or seven years or it could be eighteen months. I hope that whenever that happens that it is done gracefully".

The band have been going for almost 50 years and recently toured Britain before embarking upon a series of European dates.

Listen to the full interview on Absolute Radio’s Sunday Night Music Club on 13th October from 10pm or at www.absoluteradio.co.uk/listen/

Don't you think it's about time they "shut up shop"? Realistically, how much longer do you actually think these people can keep going? They are already in their mid-60's or older and age is showing on them. All of them. Well, everyone except John who has always just stood there and played magnificent bass. Everything ends and at some point Fleetwood Mac will too.

And for Mick to say that another album might be "five years" down the pike, I honestly don't see that. If they are going to release more music, they better strike now while the iron is hot. If they know what's good for them, they will convince Christine to record with them and get one last good album and then it will be time for them to "shut up shop" as Mick put it. Two years or five years would be an absolute disaster at this point.

I agree that Christine should be on board. She adds a commercial element they won't have
as a foursome. I'm not sure why they have to stop recording. I do feel that at their ages touring like they do will become something they won't want to do. There are other artists still making music into their 70's and late 80's, I won't name them as this about FM, but now is the time.

You must be the belle of the ball on Friday and Saturday nights.

You have my deepest sympathies. You really do.
