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.
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.
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.
