Hey when you have to go, you have to go, Fleetwood Mac’s drummer Mick Fleetwood says he urinated on the White House lawn.
The unexpected sprinkle occurred at Bill Clinton’s presidential farewell party in Washington D.C.
The band were there to perform a surprise show for Mr. Clinton in 2001, before taking to the stage, Mick felt the sudden urge to relieve himself.
The drummer revealed the story in his new autobiography. It appears Mick did try and find a portaloo but there were none available, so like any good musician he improvised.
Speaking to the Guardian, he said: “I was dying to pee and I didn’t have time to go back to the house before we appeared. I was saying to my manager, ‘What the f**k am I going to do?’”
“I was dressed like Mr Rumours, in knickerbockers, with my wooden balls hanging out. The security guys must have heard because suddenly this fella with an earpiece said something like ‘permission granted to urinate on the lawn’. One of our musicians took a picture of me doing it.”
“I don’t think Bill and Hillary knew about it, but they’d forgive me.”
Fleetwood Mac will arrive in Ireland on June 20th to play Dublin’s 3Arena. Tickets from €55.00 inc booking fee are on-sale from 9am on Friday 14th November 2014.
