Hi Richard. First of all, this blog is by far the best. Thank you so much for all the beautiful, beautiful behind the scenes pictures you've been sharing.
In regards to your question— why Fleetwood Mac— it's kind of a funny story, actually. A little over two years ago, when Mick first opened his restaurant in Maui, I just happened to be on the island and on Front Street when they were letting people just look around. At the time, I had very, very minimal knowledge on Fleetwood Mac at all. In fact, all I knew at the time was that Mick was married to Jenny Boyd, and the only reason I knew even that was from extensive Beatles knowledge. But when one of his employees approached me on the street, I decided, “Why not? I'm just killing time anyways.” So I went up the stairs to the restaurant, and with my bladder's uncanny timing, I went on a hunt for the restrooms. I ran up the stairs (take this as either a mistake or a lucky coincidence) and turned the corner, quite literally bumping into none other than Mick Fleetwood himself. Now, you have to realize, I'm not a tall [...]
Not only am I a millionaire, but “I am a legend in my own mind”. Seriously, I could have done a better job of hoarding my money, instead opting to share a lot of it with my close friends & family. I also enjoyed a great life and all the wonderful things that it entailed in the 70's & 80's. No, I didn't miss much & even though time has taken it's tax from my body now, no need for anyone to feel sorry for me. The direct answer to your question is no, although I seem to be fine financially for the rest of my life, if I live reasonable & sane. Let me be quite clear on this one. I am nothing but grateful to the band & the individual members in it. You have enabled me to live a comfortable & exciting life and for this, I shall always be grateful & humble. Here's to a million dollars worth of memories & a King's life.
Here is a cool pic of John McVie in action, playing bass on the “Tusk” album at the Village Recorder. Glad to see John playing the Fender P-Bass, love that deep low end. Can you spot two penguins in this picture?

And still having one with all of you on this blog I might add!
It's probably the fact I embalmed myself inadvertently from too much self-abuse through the years. Lol. Please do not try this same path, professional hippie only! Thank you for the overly generous comments.
My very favorite mixing room of all time is where we mixed “Rumours”, Producers Workshop in Hollywood, CA. My favorite recording studio overall would have to be “The Village Recorder” in West Los Angeles, CA. My favorite live venues would have to be the old theaters we used to play in the Midwest. With no more than 3,000 seats, classic deco architecture and intimate acoustics, those were some amazing shows. Another venue I loved to be at was “The Forum”, in Los Angeles, CA, which I am glad to hear has reopened for concerts.
Yes, Jenny was with Stevie from the very first day I met her.
