Say It's Your Birthday: Fleetwood Mac's Jeremy Spencer

Today is the birthday of Jeremy Spencer, the only mildly interesting member

of Fleetwood Mac. Spencer, who played slide guitar, and sang for the band was

born on this day in 1948. At the height of the band's success, during a

February 1971 tour of the US, he disappeared and was later found to have

become one of the Children of God in Los Angeles. Little has been heard of

him since. He made one solo album consisting of rock and roll oldies,

faithfully, but not imaginatively reproduced. It is also the birthday of John

Waite (The Babys), Kirk Pengilly (INXS), and the late, great Louis Armstrong.
