Oh good lord. Talk about a $ grab. Shame on him. Enough is enough. People have the nerve to call Nicks mercenary where her well deserved fortune is concerned. At least she isn't planning on writing her memoirs until her deathbed ~ if then.

I adore Mick. He is very well spoken & a natural historian. But is this 3 or 4 books? Maybe he should write one exclusively on his own shortcomings.

Stevie doesn't need to write books every other year. She has two enormous successful careers and as a writer receives enormous royalties where as Mick does not. He needs a revenue stream.

How rude forthe Founding original never left member for trying to earn money telling the mac story, which he has had a 100% part in. I mean it's so greedy! Mick Fleetwood has given everything for Fleetwood Mac. I'm not certain why he gets so attacked for attempting to make money.

Maybe the same reason Stevie Nicks gets ridiculed for being the primary reason they sell tickets today and for remaining relevant. She keeps the whole FM enterprise in the public
eye. None of the others are capable of filling a
small shed or theatre. Other than Mick, everyone else remains in seclusion until ca$h-in time.

It baffles and disturbs me deeply that this site has become a toxic source of innuendo that only the five members of Fleetwood Mac really know anything about. As a world wide beloved band that has experienced the kind of fame and notoriety few others have i think they deserve credit for knowing exactly what they are doing. They are the experts and they more than anyone else know the intrinsic value each bring to the table. They have all been at this long enough. To still be this famous and revered at their respective ages and to be pulling in the kind of attendance they do as FM & Nicks solo tells me they know exactly what they are doing. Let's shut up & listen.

I am looking forward to hearing Mick drum again, hopefully Mick plays drums on the new Buckingham Mc Vie album!

Mick Fleetwood is a legend...

I wish Black Sabbath would have asked Mick Fleetwood to play drums for their 13 album after Bill Ward decided not to drum for that album. Black Sabbath and Fleetwood Mac both started out as English Blues bands.
