Mick Fleetwood – June 2012 Classic Rock Birthdays
Mick Fleetwood may have been behind the kit all those years, but he was one of the most recognizable drummers in rock, not only for his skill on the drums but for his stage presence as well.
The Fleetwood Mac drummer turns 70 on June 24, and he still enjoys the occasional reunion run with his band. Thanks to his tongue-wagging ways and bulging eyes while playing, the statuesque Fleetwood was and is a dominant figure onstage. Plus, he had one of the more unique kits in music, featuring a massive dildo stuck to his bass drum that would wiggle while he played.
The group hasn't recorded a studio album since 2003's 'Say You Will,' but Fleetwood has kept himself busy with solo releases. He's recorded two discs on his own since that release.
