Danny Kirwan Bio

Daniel David "Danny" Kirwan (born 13 May 1950 in Brixton, South London) is a British musician best known for his role as guitarist, singer and songwriter with the blues rock band Fleetwood Mac between 1968 and 1972.

Danny Kirwan's guitar skills started attracting attention at an early age, and he was still only 17 when he came to the attention of established British blues band Fleetwood Mac, while he was playing in London with one of his first bands, Boilerhouse. He persuaded Mac's producer Mike Vernon to go and watch Boilerhouse rehearse (in a London basement boiler-room), and Vernon then informed Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green of his discovery. Green was impressed and, after a consultation with drummer Mick Fleetwood, Kirwan was asked to join the band in August 1968.

Kirwan's arrival expanded Fleetwood Mac to a five-piece with three guitarists, Danny playing alongside renowned ex-Bluesbreaker Green, and slide guitar player Jeremy Spencer, plus experienced bassist John McVie and drummer Fleetwood, both also formerly with the Bluesbreakers.
