Quotes of Mick Fleetwood

1[on what characteristic of musicians often makes them prone to wild living] A lot of creative people are vulnerable: they're just so focused on what they're doing. So it's quite viable to dumb out those feelings with substance or a just flat-out lifestyle
2[observation, 2014, on the reconstitution of 'Fleetwood Mac'] There was no 'Oh, we better blow the trumpet and rally the reunion of the band'. It was sort of magical the way it happened.. It's sort of a very cool fable - half nightmare, half fairy-tale story
3I have found out that I love to be really, really, really hot. It tells my little brain that I'm really doing it, like a rat experiment. So [when I perform] I have heaters all around me. My worst nightmare would be that the auditorium air conditioners are going.
4[on what reminiscences he chose to emphasize in his memoir 'Play On'] Learning how to handle the huge theatre of my career and how almost everything I dreamed of literally came true, from me being this funny little creature who just wanted to play drums and play music.
5I always joke - because I used to manage the band - that this is the worst-run franchise in rock'n'roll. If you look at what happened to us on paper, you'd say, 'It's simply not possible that these clowns can survive this'.
6John McVie who plays bass with Fleetwood Mac is not only my best friend, he's also my musical best friend because he's formulated a style that accommodates this ever-changing partner in the rhythm section.
7I'll never play exactly the same pattern on the bass drum on a song that I've been playing for 40 years. It's become the sound of our rhythm section.
8[observation, 2013, on the recording 'Rumors'] It's this mutant thing. It shaped me as a person because we went through a damage, making that album. There's still a fascination about it: it's who we are and what we are, the reason why we made all that music. It forces you to think about yourself, how you've developed or undeveloped, screwed up or not, what you learned from that, and whether you have truly moved on from the hurt, fear and loathing.

Quick Facts of Mick Fleetwood

1Involved in a televised spoof audition for the position of drummer in the band Spinal Tap first seen in the film This Is Spinal Tap (1984) in which he played with a paper bag over his head.
2Always wears a pair of wooden balls suspended from his belt when drumming.
3Stevie Nicks considers Mick her best friend.
4Lives in Los Angeles, California. He has lived in the United States since the 1970's and became a citizen in 2006.
5Dropped out of school at age 15 and moved to London to become a Drummer.

8Former brother-in-law of Pattie Boyd.
9Fleetwood Mac was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 6608 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
10Older brother of actress Susan Fleetwood.
11Fleetwood Mac won the 1998 Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution.
12Had been gigging with bands in England as early as age 18, but was able to play age restricted clubs because he looked older.
13Took some heat from the other members of Fleetwood Mac, after his autobiography came out, for the out-of-school stories he'd told about the band. He apologized to them, explaining that he'd done the book "for the money", to recover from his 1980s bankruptcy.
14His solo album "The Visitor" was inspired by a trip to Africa, where he'd heard and played with several native musicians, and preceded Paul Simon's similarly-themed "Graceland" and "The Rhythm Of The Saints" albums by almost a decade.
15Always wears a pair of wooden balls suspended from his belt when drumming! They're toilet chain-balls, snatched from a club where Fleetwood Mac played in their early days, and he kept them as a good-luck piece. (Fleetwood's "star turn" in their early stage act was when he came out from behind the drums and "played his balls", dancing and clacking them together.)
16Involved in a televised spoof audition for the position of drummer in the band 'Spinal Tap' in which he played with a paper bag over his head! (their drummers kept dying under strange circumstances!)
17Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 (as a member of Fleetwood Mac).
18Twins Tessa and Ruby with Frankel.
19His ex-wife, Jenny Boyd, is the younger sister of Pattie Boyd, who married George Harrison and Eric Clapton. Fleetwood referred to Harrison as his brother-in-law, in his autobiography.
