Mick Fleetwood Net Worth
Mick Fleetwood Net Worth: Mick Fleetwood is a British musician who has a net worth of $20 million. Mick Fleetwood's net worth would be much higher but he has openly admitted to spending tens of millions of dollars on drugs and partying during his heyday. He was even forced to declare bankruptcy in 1984 after many years of hard partying and fast living. Michael John Kells "Mick" Fleetwood was born June 24, 1947 in Redruth, Cornwall, England, U.K. He is widely known as the drummer and co-founder of the rock band Fleetwood Mac. The band name was formulated by merging Mick's last name with part of John McVie's last name. After several album releases and lineup changes, including the addition of keyboardist Christine McVie (who also just so happened to be John McVie's wife), the group moved to the United States in 1974, where Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks soon joined Fleetwood Mac. Buckingham and Nicks contributed to much of Fleetwood Mac's later commercial success. Mick also enjoyed a solo career, published written works and flirted briefly with acting and winemaking. After the supporting tour for 1979's Tusk, Mick recorded his debut solo album, The Visitor, which was released in 1981 and showed off the drummer's interest in worldbeat. After the 1982 Mac album Mirage, he cut a second solo record, 1983's I'm Not Me, which featured cameos from several Mac members. Fleetwood Mac then went on hiatus until 1987, when Mick's declaration of bankruptcy prompted the reunion LP Tango in the Night; even Lindsey Buckingham was persuaded to join in, albeit only in the studio. The band's classic '70s lineup was splintered, but Mick Fleetwood kept versions of the band going throughout the '90s. Meanwhile, he continued working on outside projects, including starting his own record label, TallMan Records. As Fleetwood Mac prepared to tour again in early 2009, the drummer issued yet another album, this one culled from a live performance by the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band entitled Blue Again! with former Fleetwood Mac vocalist Rick Vito assuming front man duties. Fleetwood Mac was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
