Mick Fleetwood is an English musician, and actor, better known simply as the band’s drummer, founding member, and unofficial leader. The band is made up of several members, all of which have their own unique style and approach to the music. Fleetwood Mac was formed by lead singer and guitarist Michael Rose. Together with lead singer and vocalist Nicky Wire, they created and put together what would become one of the most successful and long lasting pop/rock bands of all time.
Fleetwood Mac first began as a small band hailing from the sleepy town of St. John’s in Scotland. They were quickly signed by Parlophone Records, where they began to make their demo tapes. During this time, the band members were all sharing a room in a tiny flat. When they started putting together songs and demos, they found that each one took nearly two full days to complete. Their manager suggested that they sign to Island Records, which was at the time the largest record label in the United Kingdom.
Within a short amount of time, Fleetwood Mac became one of the biggest selling bands in the world. Their first album “symphonia” was instantly successful, due to its innovative music and fan base. Then, they went on to create their first album with the band name “Symphonia”, an album which proved to be even more successful. Within a few months, they were going to be major players in the English rock industry. Their third album “Reinventing Yourself” was even more successful, selling close to a million copies in just over a month.
Because of the success of their first three albums, and the fact that they were relatively inexpensive for an established act, Fleetwood Mac became one of the most popular and respected bands in the whole world. Eventually, the band went on to create their own solo careers. Drummer Mick Fleetwood was able to play on many of their singles, including hits by such bands as Oasis, Smurfie Syco and Metallica. His experience helped to create some of the best music that this genre has ever produced, including songs like “Magic”, “Don’t Save Me Now”, “Mystery Train” and many others.
However, despite all of this success, Fleetwood Mac never sold as many records as they had originally intended. The band thought that their fan base had grown and that they no longer had the same appeal as they did on their first records. Many people have attributed this to the fact that the music on these later albums was not as innovative as the music that had originally been played. It has also been said that the drummers of Fleetwood Mac had become complacent during the height of their fame and that they just took the material as they were given it and tried to give it a similar sound to everything else that was out there at the time. While many of their fans still appreciate their work, their overall net worth has decreased to the point where they have filed for bankruptcy several times.
One of Fleetwood Mac’s founding members, Robert Plant, has become well known for his controversial statements regarding his former band mate, Roger Daltrey. For a while it seemed that he had distanced himself from Fleetwood Mac completely but then he has started tweeting about how great Roger is and even got in touch with their original singer, John Entwistle, to find out what his thoughts were on the matter. Whether this was a coincidence or not is hard to say but it is in light of the fact that some people are not always a happy camper when someone they once admired turns into a bickering lunatic. In fact, some people do not like having famous people in their lives who treat them with disrespect, especially if they are older than them.
Fleetwood Mac had only one album of great quality to their credit since the departure of their original bass player, John Entwistle, in 1996. They also decided to hire their own guitar player, Steve Keen, to take over the bass role after Entwistle’s departure. Their first album since then, Live And Let Die, did not do very well both critically and commercially, and even their label, Apple Music, released a series of singles that did not do well either. This controversy led many to believe that the end of a legendary band was near for Fleetwood Mac.
It seemed as though Fleetwood Mac’s days were numbered even though the surviving members of the band are still very much in love with their craft and are doing their best to maintain their reputation as one of the most iconic and respected blues guitarists in the world. One way that they are trying to do this is by taking some of the more memorable songs off of their last album, Live And Let Die, such as “Magic” and “I Remember You”. There have been other changes coming about within the band, as well. They have recently hired a new drummer, replacing Rob Bailey, and brought in a new singer, replacing Robin Thicke, who is only twenty-one years old. The change, however, has not been enough to keep the fans of Fleetwood Mac abreast of what is happening with the band.
