On June 24, 1947, Michael John Kells Fleetwood, a talented British musician, songwriter, and actor, was born. As the drummer, co-founder, and frontman of the famed rock band Fleetwood Mac, he achieved popularity.
Fleetwood Mac’s 12th studio album, Tusk, was made available in 1979. The project showed Buckingham’s move in a more experimental path. The band’s coherence was once more greatly aided by Fleetwood, who was recently identified as having diabetes after experiencing recurrent episodes of hypoglycemia after a number of live performances.
He calmed Buckingham’s anxieties about playing with Nicks and his sense of creative claustrophobia. Regarding the claim that Buckingham took Tusk’s creative control away from the other group members, Fleetwood relates that after a three-day conversation with Buckingham, the latter was told by the former that “if it’s good, then go ahead.
Although John McVie, a well-known blues musician, disliked the experimental nature of the album and strained relationships within the band as a result, Fleetwood himself rates the album as his favorite by Fleetwood Mac and credits each band member’s ability to express themselves freely with the band’s survival.
