Fleetwood Mac was formed in 1967 in London when Peter Green; (the guitarist who replaced Eric Clapton in the British blues band John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers) asked Mick Fleetwood to come in as drummer. The band took on many changes over the coming years as Fleetwood and John McVie combined talents with other musicians. It wasn’t until 1969 that Christine Perfect who was married to bassist John McVie made her first appearance with the band as Christine McVie. Together the existing band members went through some legal turmoil with their name and struggled to find their core. Changes were constant and Fleetwood began scouting a guitar replacement for the band. While Fleetwood was in Van Nuys, California someone played him a track titled ‘Frozen Love’ from a band called ‘Buckingham Nicks’.  Fleetwood liked it and was introduced to the guitarist from the band Lindsey Buckingham. Coincidentally on the day he was hearing the track at Sound City Studios, Buckingham was there recording some demos. Fleetwood soon asked him to join. Buckingham agreed on the condition that his musical partner and girlfriend also become part of the band; Fleetwood agreed. Buckingham and Nicks joined the band on New Year’s Eve 1974.

Effortlessly moving you from laughter to tears while ushering your heart through all the emotions you did not know were lingering so close.

Brighton born Mike Rosenberg learned his craft busking in the streets of Australia, America and the United Kingdom. A troubadour at heart, with a passion born from his soul, the songs speak for themselves and his endearing sense of storytelling is selling out crowds across Europe, America and beyond.
