Mick Fleetwood


Next in our series of short introductory articles about the best drummers that ever lived and played we look at Mick Fleetwood.

Mick Fleetwood is arguably one of the greatest drummers of our times who has had an enviable drumming career. He is best known for his remarkable work as the drummer of Fleetwood Mac, a band he co-founded with the renowned guitarist Peter Green, John Mayall and John McVie in 1967.

Born on 24 June 1947, Mick Fleetwood, also an accomplished actor as well as a musician is one of the few people inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his role in Fleetwood Mac.

Other than his role as a drummer, Mick Fleetwood has played a pivotal role in the various incarnations of his band Fleetwood Mac and is the only member who has stuck with the band in its ever changing line-up. Mick Fleetwood’s willpower and prowess on the drums has gone a long way in keeping the band intact and becoming one of the best and most influential bands of our time.

  • SoundToys Update On AAX Developments
    SoundToys have just responded on their Facebook page to questions about 64 bit and AAX developments and this is what they have said…64bit in progress, and making headway. We have kept an eye on aspects of 64bit that cross over to AAX so when we’re done with 64bit, we will be able to leap into AAX. AAX(DSP) is not in development. That will be on hold until we are done with 64bit. Once we begin AAX native, we will make the decision of doing or not doing AAX DSP, but right now, it’s not in progress. That doesn’t mean we won’t do it, it just means we have to finish other things before making that decision.OK at least it is clearer, but I do hope they will go for AAX DSP. Their Pitch Doctor plug-in was my preferred tuning plug-in, but now is not available to me as I have an HDX rig. I do hope you guys at SoundToys do go for AAX DSP. Anyone who wants AAX and especially AAX DSP perhaps should tell them?
