Mick Fleetwood talked about the future of Fleetwood Mac with the Los Angeles Times while on the red carpet at last night’s Grammy Awards ceremony. The founding drummer said that performing as Fleetwood Mac was “unthinkable right now” following Christine McVie’s death in November 2022.
“I think right now, I truly think the line in the sand has been drawn with the loss of Chris,” Mick told the L.A. Times. “I’d say we’re done, but then we’ve all said that before. It’s sort of unthinkable right now.”
Fleetwood did note that he would continue to perform but not as Fleetwood Mac, as his bandmates Stevie Nicks, Neil Finn, Mike Campbell and former guitarist Lindsey Buckingham all have projects.
“They all get out and play, so I’m gonna be doing the same thing, finding people to play with,” Fleetwood said.
Mick did some performing at The Grammy Awards in a tribute to McVie during an In Memoriam segment that also featured Sheryl Crow and Bonnie Raitt (who took home four Grammys last night). McVie was awarded a posthumous Grammy for Best Arrangement, Instruments And Vocals on “Songbird (Orchestral Version).” Fleetwood, Crow and Raitt performed “Songbird” in honor of Christine.
