How Peter named the band "Fleetwood Mac"
 
According to Mick's first book:

I wasn't in the Bluesbreakers long enough to formally record any material with them except for an EP with Paul Butterfield; but John Mayall happened to give Peter Green some studio time for his birthday. So Peter, John, and I went into Decca Studios and recorded two sides of a single, "Double Trouble" and "It Hurts Me Too." We also recorded three instrumentals; two of them, "Curly" and "Rubber Duck," were later released as B sides of the singles. The third instrumental was a three-minute twelve-bar R&B shuffle with a fast tempo tapped on the high hat cymbal, Peter picking nimble blues changes. It was a real Chicago-sounding track, especially when Peter overdubbed a growling harmonica part, a la Little Walter. This third track, Peter later told us, was named after his favorite rhythm section, Fleetwood and McVie. I remember Peter Green writing down the name on the tin can that held the finished tape.

"Fleetwood Mac."

Mick certainly did NOT play on either (studio version of) 'Curly' of 'Rubber Duck'!
