Mick Fleetwood Writes A Book!
This July marks the 50th anniversary of the formation of Fleetwood Mac.
And to mark the occasion, Mick Fleetwood has written Love that Burns - A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac - Volume One 1967-1974.
The official autobiography contains more than 400 rare images and contributions from early Mac members Peter Green, Christine and John McVie, and Jeremy Spencer.
But it's a limited-edition release through high-end U.K. publisher Genesis, which also means it doesn't come cheap. The Collectors Copy will set you back $413, and a Mick Fleetwood-signed Deluxe Copy is $640.

The Rolling Stones Cough Up Some Stuff From Their Vault!
The Rolling Stones are dipping into their vaults once again, as three live releases previously available only on DVD will be out on CD on June 16th.
Ladies and Gentleman was recorded in Texas on the 1972 Exile on Main Street tour, and among Stones collectors it has the reputation as being one of their best shows ever.
Some Girls: Live in Texas ‘78 was recorded at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, just after the Some Girls album had hit number-one on the album chart.
Checkerboard Lounge: Live in Chicago 1981 isn't a proper Stones show. It's when the band showed up at Buddy Guy’s club, where Muddy Waters was playing. Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and tour keyboardist Ian Stewart all joined Waters on stage at various points.
The Beatles Are Back On Top!
Though the 50th anniversary release of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band missed the top spot on the Billboard chart by two positions, it did top one chart.
With 11,000 vinyl copies sold, Pepper is the number-one album on the Vinyl Albums chart. It's the Fab Four's best-selling vinyl release since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991.
When Pepper was released on vinyl, and nothing else, in 1967, it spent 15 weeks at number-one.
