Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This rollicking chronicle shows how, despite personnel changes, drug problems, road trips, divorces and reconciliations, the rock band Fleetwood Mac has endured from the '60s to the present. This "will please avid fans and casual readers alike," said PW. "Fleetwood emerges as hip and flip and the book is written in an assured, essentially happy tone." Photos.

Format: Hardcover
I fully expected to read all the "soap-opera-ish" accounts of the turbulent Nicks-Buckingham early years (you do get plenty of this), but I didn't realize the original Fleetwood Mac had such an interesting early history! I've heard all the stories about this account not being 100% factual, but, even if it's not entirely accurate, it's very definetly worth the read. Fleetwood's self-depricating humor and honest (to a fault) dialouge make this one of the best Rock books that I've read...highly recommended.

I had to wait a year and a half to get this book (it was already out of print). but boy, was it worthwhile! An insiders view of the often turbulent career of one of the greatest bands ever! Mick Fleetwood tells it all with an open heart. The book smells sincerity and the drummer gives us one of the best biographies I ever saw, telling all the good or bad facts he saw during his 25 plus years in the band. Unlyke meny other books about rock bands, mr. Fleetwood doe not try to hide anything about the rock life he gone through. I could not stop reading it until I finished it. A very touching book. As a human being and musician mr. Fleetwood has got my respect. Long Live Fleetwood Mac!

I picked this up at a used bookstore the other day, wondering what ole' Mick had to say about all the goings-on in the band.

What a surprise!

This is a funny, entertaining, highly enjoyable pass through the life and times of English rock in the early to late 60s, abd then an equally enjoyable romp through the craziness that was the LA music biz in the 70s and 80s.

Mick's voice is assured, hilarious, wry, insightful, and informative. He is at times modest, regretful, generous and always engaging. The early days of Mac, including the wild goings on with Peter Green and Jeremy Spencer, were a highlight, and of course the Rumours era insanity and some not-flatterring anecdotes about Buckingham are there as well.

If you have any interest in rock and roll you will want to read this book.

Bravo Mick!

I am close to finishing this book which I learned was given to my husband many years ago. It has given me a personal insight into what I never looked at that way. Mick Fleetwood always seemed like a big freak to me. But he is "fleetwood" and he knows how it all went. It is truly an insight into his feelings and a lot more. If you love fleetwood mac, read this and learn all about them - and him, from the beginning.(I'm sure there is a lot you didn't know.). It is touching. Really. Just get it and read it. There's nothing else to say, except how moved I am by this book. Read it.

I loved this book! I was unable to put the book down and finished it in one evening. The first part of the book deals with Mick's childhood and musical roots, while the latter part focuses on the various Fleetwood Mac line-ups. The book becomes enthralling by the time Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham join the band, and from then on it reads like a soap opera. I do suggest that readers realize that they are basically reading only Mick Fleetwood's point of view, however. I have read comments about the book by the other members of Fleetwood Mac, and they do suggest that there are inaccuracies. The book is excellent entertainment and very revealing, however, that is likely to be appreciated and enjoyed by any Fleetwood Mac fan!

This was a pretty interesting read for the first half of the book when the author told how the original band was formed under Peter Green and how they were struggling musicians, more concerned about their music than seeking fame. Excellent information and insight on the founder of Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green. Since reliable information on Peter Green is scarce, it was interesting to read Fleetwood's take on the eccentric genius. I give this book four stars up through the end of Bob Welsh and the Mystery to Me album.

The old train went off the tracks, with this book and the band, when Buckingham and Nicks joined. This was when the silliness began and Fleetwood Mac became another highly successful, highly dysfunctional group of people. The band became ultra successful and began focusing on their individual egos and over indulgences in drugs and material goods.

In the second half of this book, Fleetwood and Davis focused more on telling the reader about the soap opera shenanigans and silliness going on between the band members than about the music they were making. By the end of the book, this reader was hoping someone would put these poor people out of their misery.

The evolution of Fleetwood Mac according to this book went from arguably the greatest British blues band ever to becoming the over produced, overhyped bubble gum rock, top forty band that most people recognize.

One and a half stars for the second half of the book. It was monotonous and it was boring reading about the food spread at each concert, the individual limos these people demanded, and which band member was trying to sleep with which other band member.

The ultimate shame for Mick Fleetwood is how he could possibly spend a fortune ($8M plus in 1980s value money) and according to him, 'not have much to show for it'.
