Rock Star
Written by Wing Commander Joseph John Kells Fleetwood (Mick's dad)

Gloucester Station, wet and dreary
A mum, a dad and a teenage boy
stand together, yet apart,
dreading the last goodbye

The London train pulls in and waits.
The boy climbs in, it's the acid test.
Their last young fledgling
is leaving the nest.

The train door slams,
everything tensioned,
as all three unburdened thoughts

Mum says,
don't forget to wrap up
and not get a chill.
We don't want to hear
you are sick, or ill.

The boy smiles.
Don't worry mum.
I'm as fit as a flea.
I'll be all right,
just you wait and see.

Dad, do you think the
drum kit will make it?
It's in the guards van.
wrapped in a blanket.

The whistle blows,
it's all too much.
Dad blows his nose, Mum sheds a tear.
The embryo Rock Star
hides his fear.

The train jerks forward.
The umbilical is broken.
It's raining. He's gone,
they are alone.

He seeks his fortune,
with eyes full of fun.
To conquer the world,
with two sticks and a drum.

Through years of gigs,
sordid clubs.
Dead-beat roadies
and randy fans.
Endless journeys
in broken-down vans.

Crooked managers
exploiting talent.
Pusher, junkie, Rocker, and Mod.
Dolly girls, poofs,
and Children of God.
All played their part
to make or mar
The dream of a boy
on his way to a star.

Then suddenly, he's there.
He'd out-rocked the rest.
People stand and stare,
from the Albert Hall in London
to New York's Madison Square.

Rock Star, Super Star.
He is the lot,
knowing in his inner heart,
it's all just tommy rot.

Still a boy with a dream,
and eyes full of fun,
who had been through the mill
and made it,
with just two sticks,
and a drum.

At the end of making this documentary Lynn & Mick were expecting twins.

On February 28, 2002, Mick & Lynn welcomed Roby Mim and Tessa Kells into their family.

From Mick Fleetwood cast a long shadow as the co-founder of one of rock's most successful bands--Fleetwood Mac. He was the lanky, frenzied drummer whose unorthodox style drove the band's luscious harmonies and whose slightly crazed persona balanced out the group's ethereal qualities. In this definitive portrait of a life lived within one of rock 'n' roll's most turbulent groups, the story traces Mick Fleetwood's life from his childhood to his early career playing with the world's greatest blues musicians to his years with Fleetwood Mac. Formed in 1967, the group began with its roots firmly planted in the blues and evolved toward pop-rock as the line-up changed. Ironically, Fleetwood Mac's most successful album, "Rumours," with its carefree melodies and bouncy rhythms, was written about the internal tensions that eventually tore the band apart. Includes interviews with B.B. King, John Lee Hooker, Peter Green, John McVie, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, and John Mayall!
