Add the name Mick Fleetwood as in Fleetwood Mac, to the list of artists who are selling their recordings.
The 73 year old drummer and founding member of Fleetwood Mac has struck a deal with music company BMG that covers classic albums like “Rumours” and “Tusk” and represents 300 songs, or (as the company puts it) “18 hours of drumming.”
The deal with BMG means Fleetwood has traded his future earnings from the sale of the band’s music for an upfront payment.
BMG did not disclose the sum involved, but it reportedly is in the millions of dollars.
