Mick Fleetwood lost two years in a cocaine blizzard following the success of Rumours. Famously, the British-American rock band lived life to the full in the wake of the phenomenal global success of 1977’s Rumours album, which has now sold over 40 million copies worldwide. And their drummer admits that he has precious little recollection of the narcotic haze which engulfed certain members of the band in the immediate aftermath of the Mac becoming a genuine superstar band.

Mick Fleetwood has suggested that he cannot remember two years of his life due to heavy cocaine use. Mick Fleetwood that by 1985 he had sold his mansion, his flash car collection, even all his gold and platinum records, and now slept on a cot in the back room of Mac producer Richard Dashut’s Laurel Canyon home. He was bankrupt, divorced, and so addled on coke that the only people he still spoke to on a regular basis were the voices in his head.

Mick Fleetwood can't remember two years of his life, due to being addled on cocaine at the time.

The Fleetwood Mac drummer has insisted he was the biggest "party animal" in the 'Dreams’ band and claimed there was a lengthy period "way after" making their seminal 1977 album 'Rumours', when he was so off his face on drugs, that he didn't work for two years and has no recollection of what he did.

He told Classic Rock magazine: "There's no doubt we were well equipped with the marching powder. That's a well-worn fairytale that gets more like a war story, that gets more and more aggrandised.

Mick Fleetwood , drummer in iconic pop band Fleetwood Mac, has confirmed that a notorious tale of him snorting seven miles’ worth of cocaine in his lifetime is probably true. The 71- year -old confessed to The Sun that his drug taking during the band’s heyday could “easily have ended the really bad way” and dismissed the “romance” In his 2014 memoir Play On, Fleetwood wrote that he had blown £20 million on cocaine and theorised it would stretch for seven miles if it were all laid out in a line. Clarifying his statements from the book, he said: “I guess we figured we did X amount a day, and then some

But as Mick Fleetwood admits, the acrimonious exit of guitarist Lindsey Buckingham 18 months ago after he refused to go on tour could have marked the end of one of rock’s great names. Instead he was replaced by two newcomers — Neil Finn of Crowded House and guitar virtuoso Mike Campbell. “Lindsay left fairly acrimoniously and we weren’t getting on well any more, and yes, it is a happier ship to be on. We have two new people in the band who have been hugely accepted and welcomed, but in many ways it does amaze me that we are still here all these years later, after all of the ups and downs.

Increasingly mentally fragile, he suddenly loses his temper over the simple process of tuning a guitar. Banging the wall with his fists, he hurls his expensive Gibson Les Paul instrument at a mirror, showering broken glass over his bandmates. It was a heartbreaking end for the soft-spoken Californian who years ago fell out with his old bandmates after he sued them over the rights to royalties — and was then excluded from Fleetwood Mac’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. The band’s singer Stevie Nicks said his death was ‘devastating’, hailing ‘an amazing guitar player, he was

Though the 73-year-old musician believes himself to be the wildest member of the Grammy-winning group, Stevie, 72, has previously admitted she considered herself "the worst drug addict” of them all.
