Jeremy Spencer

Born on the Fourth of July, 1948, Jeremy Spencer began piano lessons at an early age but switched to guitar at 15. After discovering Elmore James and emulating his style, he formed his own band, Levi Set. His expert slide work and pounding voice caught the attention of record producer Mike Vernon, who then convinced Fleetwood Mac Peter Green to check out the pint-sized dynamo. The rest is history. Jeremy became the first member of Fleetwood Mac to record a solo album, "Jeremy Spencer" (1970). In 1998, Jeremy was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with the founding and present members of Fleetwood Mac. Jeremy's mastery of slide has only improved with age and his appeal is now extending to a new generation who know little or nothing of his association with Fleetwood Mac. Blues Revue editor Art Tipaldi, says: "Jeremy has lost none of the fire from the Fleetwood Mac days. His slide guitar still sends chills. Every note I've heard Jeremy play showcases his great commitment to the blues. I've seen him ignite the stage with a mixture of classic Chicago blues and smart contemporary songs." Jeremy's latest, "Bend in the Road," was recorded with a crack band of Detroit blues and rock players.
