It could have been somebody else though. At a similar time that Neil was at Micks restaurant performing with Mick and the House band Brian Johnson (ex-AC/DC) was also there performing with them. I think he was interviewing Mick for a documentary but perhaps he was considered for Fleetwood Mac too at the same time.
I don't think so, Brian Johnson had to retire from touring because of his hearing problems, he can still perform for short periods of time but said he can't sustain an entire full set (and also I can't see him fitting anywhere in FM's catalogue so thank God)
