Jeremy Spencer


British musician Jeremy Spencer (born July 4, 1948) was one of Fleetwood Mac's early guitarists, joining the band in 1967. His specialty was the slide guitar and he was strongly influenced by blues musician Elmore James. He remained with the band until 1971 when he joined an obscure Christian cult known as the Children of God. Changing his name to Jonathan (later changing back to Jeremy), he renounced his possessions and shaved his head in joining the cult.

He remains with them to this day participating in missionary activities and doing studio recordings for the new religious movement throughout Asia and South America (mainly Brazil).

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 for his work as part of Fleetwood Mac.

Spencer recorded a few albums and was touring India in the late 1990s. Some Spencer's children (with his former wife, Fiona) have formed a band in England called JYNXT. The band members are: Nat, Koa, Tally, and Rick Spencer.
