Biography

Mick Fleetwood, legendary drummer and co-founding member of Fleetwood Mac, was born in 1947 in Cornwall, England. He began his professional drumming career at the age of 16 and has remained at the forefront of the music industry for over 40 years. In 1967, Mick Fleetwood, along with Peter Green and John McVie, formed the original Fleetwood Mac, a band that subsequently became one of the leading blues bands of that era.

A later incarnation of Fleetwood Mac including Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, and Christine McVie released the band's 1977 multi-Grammy Award winner RUMOURS, which remains one of the biggest selling albums in music history. In 1998 Fleetwood Mac was inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame. From 2003 through 2004 the band once again embarked on a world tour and released their critically acclaimed album Say You Will. Mick Fleetwood and his band, Fleetwood Mac, plan to continue making great music long into the future.

For decades, Mick Fleetwood has proven to be not only one of rock's greatest drummers but also an astute discoverer of great talent and has pursued other projects with the same energy, drive and passion he puts into his drumming. In 2000, Mick Fleetwood formed his own record label, TallMan Records, a company he created to debut new artists and share important music to an ever-widening audience.

Mick Fleetwood has had fun with an acting career and is the co-author of two books, the New York Times best seller, My Life and Adventures in Fleetwood Mac, and the coffee table book, My Twenty-Five years in Fleetwood Mac.

Mick Fleetwood manages his own wine enterprise, Mick Fleetwood Private Cellar. As with everything else in his life, he uses a hands-on approach to selecting, blending, critiquing and ultimately creating any wine that earns the distinction "Mick Fleetwood - Private Cellar." "I find so many parallels between the wine blending and creating music. Just a little change to either mix can make all the difference. It's so much about really caring and paying attention in the process."

An avid golf player, Mick Fleetwood has channeled his enthusiasm for the game into helping create awareness for many worthy causes. By involving himself in fund-raising tournaments Mick Fleetwood has aided such causes as the ALS Project, SIMA Environment Fund, Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the PBS affiliate KCET.

During 40 years of guiding Fleetwood Mac through multiple incarnations, generations and perils, Mick Fleetwood has become a master at conquering challenges and adversities. From managing his businesses to managing the delicate balance between "Rock n' Roll" and family life, he has overcome the most difficult of obstacles while maintaining the truth of his brand. Whether behind his drum kit or exploring his other passions, Mick Fleetwood brings a unique drive, spirituality, and vision to the many facets of his life.
