Is Mick The Poorest Member Of Fleetwood Mac? See His 2021 Net Worth
Fleetwood Mac drummer, co-founder, and bandleader Mick Fleetwood has an extraordinary music carer spanning nearly six decades. In addition to his work with the band, the musician also has a solo music career, has published written works, and sometimes does some acting too.
Considering the fact that he has a triumph music, acting, and writing career, many fans would expect Mick Fleetwood to have an impressive fortune after all these years. Unfortunately for him, it’s not the case since the drummer spent a lot of money on cocaine, much like many musicians during the 1970s in Los Angeles.
What was different with Fleetwood was that his cocaine addiction got so bad that he announced bankruptcy. He isn’t a poor musician nowadays since his millions of debt are long gone, but that doesn’t mean that his current net worth is as high as anticipated. In fact, it’s the lowest amongst his other bandmates.
Mick Fleetwood Has A Net Worth Of $30 Million
Although nobody would expect the creator of one of the best-selling albums of all time to be poor, Mick Fleetwood was a broke musician during the 1980s when his cocaine addiction allegedly took approximately $60 million from his fortune throughout his music career.
That’s when the musician filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy after realizing his addiction took all of his money, leaving him with over $3.5 million of debt. According to the rocker, the alleged $60 million he spent on cocaine is just a myth, and he spent only $8 million on his addiction. However, regardless of the rumors, by 1984, all of his money was gone.
After his bankruptcy, the Fleetwood Mac drummer decided to stay away from cocaine, and he’s been sober since 1991. As for his financial status, it took him almost a decade to get back on his feet, and he now has a net worth of $30 Million which is nowhere near being poor.
However, this doesn’t mean that he didn’t lose a great deal of money over the years. In fact, currently, Mick has the least impressive fortune out of his bandmates which could’ve been different since Fleetwood has been the only permanent member since their formation.

She has a net worth of $120 million and being the only woman in history to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice, as a member of Fleetwood Mac and then as a solo artist explains it all.
Nicks is followed by her fellow female bandmate Christine McVie who also has an impressive net worth of $105 million thanks to being one of the best songwriters.

On the other hand, Finn shares the last place with Mick Fleetwood with a net worth of $30 million, which confirms that the drummer is the poorest member of his own band.
