Mick Fleetwood Talks New Supergroup

The Fleetwood Mac founder says that he wants to do more with The M.O.B.

The M.O.B. features Fleetwood, John McVie, guitarist Johnny Lang and Aerosmith's Stephen Tyler and they were formed to take part in the forthcoming ZZ Top tribute album, ZZ Top - a Tribute From Friends.

Speaking to Billboard Fleetwood reveals that he was more than happy to form a band for the album.

"I knew about (ZZ Top) before I met them, and they are the real deal," Fleetwood says. "They come from a great love of blues, and they've always expressed a real regard for Peter Green and the original Fleetwood Mac, which led to this long-term friendship and regard. So this was totally my pleasure to do. I was not only flattered to be asked but excited to be part of it"

He also says that he hopes to do more with the band in the future. "I have musical fantasies all the time," he says with a laugh, "but we had a lot of fun doing this, and I truly, truly do have a vision of somewhere, somehow walking on stage and actually putting something together with (the group). It's nothing on a boiler plate right now, but it's certainly something in my mind, and I think everybody else's, too."

Fleetwood also recently took part in the first episode of Cabo Wabo's Off The Record Series, in which two musicians essentially interview each other.

He was partnered with singer Nicole Atkins and you can watch the episode below:
