Somewhere between Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours and Tusk, there was this.

Ludwig Rockers magazine ad with Mick Fleetwood from the back cover of Canadian Musician, April 1979

Forget the drum heads, Mick, and let’s talk about that glorious coat!

The ad copy:

If your head’s into rock, match heads with Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac. Rockers are the only drum heads designed especially for rock. They’re tough, fast action heads that match rock power with head power and won’t pull out. A patented mechanical interlock system called Headlock permanently locks each head in place. Plus, temperature changes and other weather conditions won’t weaken or change the pitch of the head. For rock, play Rockers. Mick Fleetwood does. Find your head at your Ludwig Dealer.


“At last, matching heads.” — Mick Fleetwood
