Mick Fleetwood Autobiography, "Play On," to Be Published October 28th

As the drummer of Fleetwood Mac since its 1967 inception, Mick Fleetwood saw the group transform from a respected British blues outfit to one of the most successful U.S.-based pop-rock acts ever.  The 67-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer certainly has more than a few tales to tell about his experiences in the group, and will share them in a new autobiography titled Play On: Now, Then and Fleetwood Mac, which will be published on October 28 in the US and October 30th in the UK.

The memoir, which was co-written with veteran Rolling Stone journalist Anthony Bozza, will offer an intimate look at the personal and professional triumphs and trials of Fleetwood and his band mates.  Through Fleetwood Mac's volatile history, which has included lineup upheavals, madness, drug abuse and intraband love affairs, Mick has been there for it all: He's the only member to have played with every incarnation of the group.

According to non-fiction publisher Hannah Black who acquired world rights in a joint deal with Little, Brown US, Mick will be do a UK book tour in November, said: “After 46 years of being on the road, now is the right time to look back in a way I've never done before: now and then.”

Play On will be released about one month after Fleetwood Mac kicks off its latest tour -- its first with longtime singer/keyboardist Christine McVie since 1998.  The trek begins September 30 in Minneapolis and runs through a December 20 show in Tampa, Florida.

Play On will be published as a hardback, e-book and audiobook on 28th October (US/CANADA) and on 30th October (UK).

How will Mick do a UK book tour in November when the band is touring the US through December 20th? There is a nine-day break in the tour (11/1-11/10) so maybe he can fly over to the UK for a week.

It's a bit confusing how this book is going to differ from Mick's autobiography "My Life And Adventure In Fleetwood Mac" that he wrote and published years ago? Is this just an update of the years since then, or will it have different stories of the past?

If he divulges any behind the scene stories that are even the slightest bit scandalous, then the band will be pissed, like before - which is funny because his last book was quite lame. Should either make for a tense tour or a boring book!
