Uhhhh....no. That's wrong.

It wasn't until the whole Mystery To Me tour, "bogus band" fiasco in '73/74 that Welch suggested they emigrate to the US (SoCal in particular) to be physically closer to their record company's headquarters. From the time he joined the band until they moved to California, Welch, I think, was living at the Fleetwood Mac "commune" Benifolds. (Right, Bob? If you happen to read this.)
