Fleetwood Mac Auction Last Weekend
05 Dec 2022
Last weekend, Julien's Auctions held an auction celebrating three members of the iconic band Fleetwood Mac, that included the personal items of John McVie, Christine McVie and Mick Fleetwood.
Following the sad passing of Christine McVie, it was poignant to see amongst the items for sale her stage pianos and costumes, including the dress she wore on the Rumours album cover, with which she created such memorable performances.
Notable items for auction included iconic instruments played by the band such as John McVie's custom fingerboard electric bass guitar, Mick Fleetwood's drums, as well as an impressive selection of awards, posters and memorabilia.
Surprisingly, the highest ticket item for the auction were the two wooden balls worn by Mick Fleetwood as part of his attire for the album cover of Rumours that were sold for $130,000.
