dear lawd... he cashed that publishing $$$ check and the snake oil salesman beat a path to his door. This will rank right up there with his wines (are those even still around??). I'll never forget that pic of him sitting in a Costco or some such waiting for someone, anyone to stop by his little table.

I wonder the fate of his restaurant in Maui. That had to hemorrhage a crap ton of money during the pandemic, and not sure tourism there has recovered yet. They get a lot of the tourists off the cruise ships, and not sure those are doing well either.

Guess he wanted stuff he could sell and ship to people even if they can't leave their homes. But who the hell wants the branded merch that goes with???

I follow his restaurant on FB, and it looks like it's doing okay.

But he's the king of bad, cheesy decisions. His next book should be - Mick Fleetwood - How To Be A Famous Musician, And Perpetually Broke.

I'll bet he's really freaking out now, that it looks like the band is done.

I wonder if the infamous Jonathan Todd is behind this business venture.

This new venture is a tantalizing combination of almond, caramel, and a slight hint of cocoa to inspire a mellow acidity (think fresh garden tomato). This medium-bodied creation is sure to be a fan favorite.

I dunno.... he did a tv interview where he was asked about the publishing cash out and he said that actually it would allow him to do things that otherwise he'd have to wait a number of years down the line to do. I took that to mean that instead of slogging through one or possibly two more tours over the coming years as geriatrics to get the cash he needed, he suddenly had it all in a lump sum he could start spending NOW without ever going back on the road.

Sounds like he saw it as having his cake and eating it too.

Unless ol' Mickey plans to be off the Earth in the next 5 years, there is no way the man won't blow through any lump sum he might have received before he dies. He's repeatedly found himself broke despite it literally seeming almost impossible to do so given his situation (and here come the "but him and John don't make as much as Lindsey and Stevie and Christine bla bla bla" comments - I call BS, Mick is just a complete loser with money).

Look at the picture on the website. He's literally standing in the cup of coffee. That's meant to make it appetizing?
(Did the MF Wine website show him stomping the grapes barefooted?)

And the "Note Perfect" logo... I first read it as "Not Perfect".

Can't wait to get my MFCC adjustable cap!

This ill-fated "Present Band" forum could be repurposed as a place for threads about MF's many business ventures. There would be more to talk about.

Can we name ANYONE in the music world that's worse with money than Mick? I mean, he set the bar for what NOT to do with your money?
