Mick Fleetwood Talks Crazy Early Days Of Fleetwood Mac With Playboy


Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood has revealed some curious details about his band's early days in the late-1960s, before they became one of the biggest bands on earth.

"We wanted to stand out from all the other Englishmen playing traditional blues, so we never held back" he told Playboy magazine in an interview.

The drummer goes on to claim that he "used to play with a massive dildo stuck to the top of my bass drum so the thing would wiggle front and centre through the entire set."

The peculiar prop was used in other ways as well. "We used to cover Elvis [Presley]," Fleetwood continues, "and for John's number he'd pull his bass up high and put that thing through his zipper. He'd be there doing Elvis' hubba-hubba routine with this massive black c*ck hanging out of his trousers."

The prank worked in getting the band noticed, but not always by the right people. "That little gag almost got us killed by the sheriff's department when we played some Christian college in Texas!"

As far as the band's future tour plans, Fleetwood said he think it's unlikely that the members would have the time for a full blown tour.
