Default Mick Fleetwood joining Crowded House?

apparently, newly reforming Crowded House will need to find a drummer. sounds like a perfect gig for Mick.

I would have preferred he had just done that than ruin the band's legacy. To transition from a fake Fleetwood touring band to record or tour with Crowded House would be an unbelievable betrayal.

Well, no betrayal is unbelievable now.

Fleetwood Mac helped me through a time of heartbreak. 12 years later, they broke my heart.

He seems to live a rather grandiose lifestyle and therefore "regularly" files for bankruptcy. Lindsey has kept him gainfully employed over the years when FM was on the back burner., and let him live in his driveway when he was in a bad way...Lindsey's health issues aside, I am pretty sure he's not calling up MF asking him to play on his next album, should there be one (am so hopeful there is). Being CH new drummer makes a ton of sense. Mick needs to be kept up in the lifestyle he's accustomed too.

Christine has bailed him out on plenty of occasions as well-- $100k here, $100k there.... One can feel pretty confident he's unlikely to have ever paid any of it back -- or even offered to (which Chris would probably have turned down, telling him no need to pay it back) but at least offering to pay it back would be the classy thing to do.

But Mark Hart was the keyboardist ? Unless I'm mistaken the CH drummer still exists?

I think they didnít have a drummer for a while now.

Yeah Mitchell Froom will be the keyboardist in this new version.

Matt Sherrod is still very much the drummer and a member of the band, unless you've heard otherwise?
