Mick Fleetwood Pens Limited Edition Memoir
LOVE THAT BURNS: A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac, 1967-1974 is a new book by our favorite drummer detailing the seven-year period before Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joined the band. It’s an era of great music; songs like “Black Magic Woman” and “Oh Well” defined the formative years with guitarist/singer/songwriter Peter Green, while “Bare Trees” and “Hypnotized” came from the tenure of Green’s replacement Bob Welch, who left just prior to the arrival of Buckingham and Nicks.
While it’s unlikely that any of us in The Mask will get our hands on this deluxe, rare photo-laden package (only 2000 copies, all signed by Mick, are currently available), its publication reminded us of the countless requests we’ve gotten from fans for music from that early period.
On Friday, Nov. 3, Fleetwood Mask returns to Yoshi’s in Oakland for two back-to-back shows, and we’ll be working in some classic Mac from the Peter Green/Bob Welch era. There are so many great tunes – come on down and find out which ones we picked!
In the meantime, let us know what your favorites are from those early years. “Green Manalishi?” “Heroes Are Hard to Find?” “Station Man?” “Rattlesnake Shake?” Each of us in the band has our own wish list – we want to know what’s on yours!
