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).

Mick Fleetwood's relationship w/ Stevie Nicks detailed in his NEW Autobiography by @HodderBooks and @littlebrown

Unapproved Visual
The full and intimate autobiography of the legendary Mick Fleetwood:
The only original remaining member of super group Fleetwood Mac. Fleetwood's book spans his chequered 40 year career as one of rock's greatest drummers and co-founder of the notorious group that bears his name. In this candid portrait of a life lived in music, Mick Fleetwood describes growing up in Cornwall, Egypt and Norway where his obsession wth drumming began, to his early days as a musician in Sixties London gigging with the Yardbirds and learning the blues from John Mayall. Among other subjects, Mick's close relationship with George Harrison, his marriage to Jenny Boyd and his relationship with Stevie Nicks are revealed. Including behind-the-scenes moments from Fleetwood Mac's sell out 2013 tour, his memoir sheds new light on Fleetwood's history as well as personal insights from a man who has been a major player in blues and rock n' roll since his teens. Mick describes the multiple incarnations of Fleetwood Mac: the early successes, the creative collaborations and confrontations, the intense loves and destructive feuds. Drugs, bankruptcy, madness and heartbreak frequently threatened to end it all, but through sheer love and determination one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time has endured.
