THE MANUSCRIPT

Love That Burns

"The line 'Please don't leave me with a love that burns' applies to a lot in the Fleetwood Mac journey. When Peter Green left the band, that's how I felt - that the love would be irreplaceable, and in many ways it was."

Mick Fleetwood

Love That Burns contains original manuscript from Mick Fleetwood recounting his childhood, early bands, Fleetwood Mac's debut performance, first international tours, live gig antics, playing with blues legends at Chess Studios, the genius of Peter Green and the many talented members that formed Fleetwood Mac in the years before 1975.

Love That Burns features text commentaries by Peter Green, Christine McVie, John McVie, Jeremy Spencer, John Mayall, Mike Vernon, Sandra (Vigon) Elsdon and Jenny Boyd and is narrated with more than 20,000 words.

THE AUTHOR

Love That Burns

"Every page turned in this precious book reflects the efforts and life force of each band member that was part of this early journey that Fleetwood Mac took."

Mick Fleetwood

Mick Fleetwood is a self-taught drummer and a founding member of one of the most successful bands of the last 50 years, Fleetwood Mac. Formed in 1967, their first album Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac came in at no.4 in the UK charts and brought the band overnight success. They went on to release the no.1 hit 'Albatross' and a series of critically acclaimed albums, with further hit singles including 'Black Magic Woman' and 'Need Your Love So Bad'.

A constant in Fleetwood Mac's frequently changing line-up, Mick Fleetwood took over management of the band two years before they released Rumours which - having sold over 40 million copies worldwide - remains one of the best-selling albums of all time. Mick Fleetwood now runs the hugely successful Fleetwood's on Front St. restaurant and bar in his home of Maui, Hawaii. His latest creative endeavour is the forthcoming limited edition from Genesis Publications, Love that Burns - A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac.
