Overview

Biography

Mick Fleetwood (born Michael John Kells Fleetwood in Cornwall, June 24, 1947) is the longtime drummer in rock band Fleetwood Mac . After dropping out of school aged 15, Fleetwood moved to London in 1963 to pursue a career as a drummer and got his first job playing in the band The Cheynes. Stints playing in the Bo Street Runners, Shotgun Express and John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers followed. It was during his time in The Bluesbreakers he met long time friend bassist John McVie and guitarist Peter Green. After being fired from the group for drunkenness during gigs, a few months later Green asked him to play, along with McVie, on some recordings he was making and not long after this line-up became the first incarnation of Fleetwood Mac. Green prophetically named his new band after his rhythm section, as Fleetwood and McVie were to be the only original members to stay in the group over the years.
