The Ka'anapali Golf Resort in Lahaina on Maui hosted Mick Fleetwood yesterday as he shot a piece for a Golf Channel TV show. I have no information on what show this was shot for or when it will air, but their are some fantastic shots of Mick on the course on the Kaanapali Golf Resort Facebook page.

Mick Fleetwood's Island Rumours Band as part of the filming also played Front Street in Lahaina.  Full set of shots can also be found on the Ka'anapali Golf Resort Facebook Page

Gossip website claims band will top the bill

Fleetwood Mac are rumoured to be headlining Glastonbury festival next summer.

According to the reunited band will close the Somerset bash on the Pyramid Stage on Sunday (June 27) – although the band or festival chiefs have not confirmed the rumoured booking.

U2 have been announced as headliners for the Friday (25) night of Glastonbury, while it is also heavily rumoured that Muse will also play a headline slot.

Fleetwood Mac recently played a UK arena tour.

Drive with David Iliffe

What's the pride and joy in your music collection? Could it be Fleetwood Mac's 1977 release, "Rumours"?

The album was one of the highest sellers in the world. In fact, it had 31 weeks at number 1 on the US Billboard charts.

The band has just announced that they are touring Australia in December, so I thought it was fitting to pull out this album for the first in our series of "Must Have Music".

Every fortnight, our music man on Drive Col Clifford will join me for a yarn about what albums should appear in every good music fan's record collection. Listen to why this one should be included below.

(Part 2) Island Rumours Band Show

Mick Fleetwood - The Show

by: Deborah Chesher
Everybody I Shot is Dead

Following the interview, we (me and the assembled 4 person crew) headed over to the Spotlight 29 casino for the big show. It was mid-afternoon so I figured we'd have plenty of time to suss out the venue and lighting, meet with the sound guy and still have time for a nice sit-down meal before Tyler arrived with one more camera and an operator.


As it turned out, there wasn't a second to spare between hitting the venue and the doors opening. Fortunately, the band was having one last sound check before the show so we could get the logistics down of where to put each camera/operator and what coverage they were responsible for. It was also an opportunity for the sound guy to set up and figure out his levels.

Mick & Rick Interviewed and Filmed in Palm Springs for DVD

Mick Fleetwood - The Interview
by: Deborah Chesher

Deborah was a rock'n'roll photographer back when the music business was about the music. She has just released her new book "Everybody I Shot Is Dead", a collection of her photographs of the musicians who have passed, along with her personal stories.

"Are you able to film an interview with Mick Fleetwood and his band on Saturday afternoon in Palm Springs?"

It was originally a question for me to pass on to Tyler, since he's the one that just got out of NYU film school and has the mad shooting and editing skills. But he had a production meeting on Saturday afternoon for some reality pitch he was editing so I stepped in and organized the shoot. I found a guy with a camera and lighting package that could do it within the budget and, just like that, it was a go.

The purpose of the interview was to create a special features segment for a DVD of a concert they shot in London of Mick and his Blues Band. But then everything changed. The fates stepped in on Thursday and I was asked about the possibility of setting up a five camera shoot for the concert Mick was doing on Saturday night...
