Drummers Mick Fleetwood and Stewart Copeland
In 1968 Mick Fleetwood formed Fleetwood Mac and has been the only constant member of this famous band since it's inception and through 50 albums. His drumming is the heart of the sound and we hear him from 1970's "Kiln House" and 1979 "Tusk". He travelled to Africa in 1981 and released his first solo album "The Visitor". When the Police's drummer Stewart Copeland released his first solo album in 1985 after the Police disbanded, he also traveled to Africa to record "The Rhythmatist" and "find the African roots of rock n' roll". He maintains a successful career composing film soundtracks, TV show themes and classical works including an opera. In 2007 the Police reunited for a world tour and we hear "Walking in Your Footsteps" and "Don't Stand So Close to Me". Born in America, he was raised in the Middle East and you hear that influence in his drumming.
