Fleetwood Mac - Mick Fleetwood Mentoring Aspiring Singer

Fleetwood Mac rocker Mick Fleetwood has offered to mentor an aspiring young blues musician after spotting a clip of him performing on YouTube.com.

Fleetwood is championing 20 year old Dan Owen after seeing a video of him singing a cover of Bob Dylan's The Ballad Of Hollis Brown, which received a massive 400,000 hits on the clip-sharing website.

Owen, who is now playing under the name Blues Boy Dan Owen, has revealed he couldn't believe it when the music legend contacted him.

He says, "Mick has been a real help, a real mentor. It was amazing to meet him. At first I thought it was someone else. I knew of Fleetwood Mac but I thought it can't be him - it was. The first thing he said to me was 'I feel like I know you already'. We really got on."

Fleetwood adds of his protege, "Dan's music is from the heart - it is genuine blues and Dan is at the forefront of the new wave in British singer-songwriter talent."

Owen is set to tour with ZZ Top later this year (13) and record with Grammy-winning producer Vance Powell.
