Genesis Publications’ Love That Burns-A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac

Genesis Publications has announced the availability of a signed, limited-edition book by Mick Fleetwood, drummer, bandleader and founding member of Fleetwood Mac. Love That Burns—A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac will be published this fall. The book is described in a press release as “Fleetwood’s account of the early blues era of Fleetwood Mac and the musical legacy of the uniquely talented Peter Green.” Green was one of the band’s stellar guitarists in its blues incarnation.

To celebrate the announcement, Mick Fleetwood will appear at the SXSW Conference and Festival in Austin, Texas, on March 15. Speaking with Rolling Stone magazine’s David Fricke, Fleetwood “will unravel the dramatic history of a band that emerged from the British blues boom,” says the press release. The discussion will be illustrated with rare images selected from the forthcoming collaboration with Genesis Publications.

Each handcrafted copy of the book—limited to 2,000 numbered copies worldwide—will be signed by the artist. In addition to the Q&A with Fricke, Genesis Publications and SXSW are offering an exclusive VIP package to a small group of early book buyers.

Mick Fleetwood and some of his toys

Fleetwood still likes to return to his first love, the blues, when he’s not busy with the Mac. His own Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, featuring guitarist Rick Vito (who replaced Lindsey Buckingham in Fleetwood Mac from 1987-91) recently released Live at the Belly Up, a two-hour album featuring 17 tracks. The album features Fleetwood Mac hits like “Oh Well” “Black Magic Woman” and “Albatross” as well as blues-rock standards like “Carol” and blues classics like “You Can’t Judge A Book By Its Cover” and “Shake Your Moneymaker.” That band also features Lenny Castellanos on bass. The album can be ordered here.
