Mick Fleetwood Mourns Loss Of His Lahaina Restaurant In Maui Fires: “We Are Heartbroken”

Among the thousands of Maui residents impacted by the fires there over the past few days is Mick Fleetwood. The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame drummer lost his waterfront restaurant, Fleetwood’s, in the blaze that tragically reduced much of Lahaina to rubble.
“This is a devastating moment for MAUI and many are suffering unimaginable loss,” wrote the musician. “Fleetwoods on front (sic.) Street has been lost and while we are heartbroken our main priority is the safety of our dear staff and team members.”
The multi-level restaurant was a local landmark and adorned with Fleetwood Mac memorabilia which is also now, assumedly, lost. In the photo below, the footprint of the restaurant sits at about the center of the frame near the 90-degree “L” formed by the coast. The status of Fleetwood’s home, which is also in West Maui, is unclear, according to the New York Times.
Here is Fleetwood’s entire statement:
MAUl and The Lahaina community have been my home for several decades.This is a devastating moment for MAUl and many are suffering unimaginable loss.Fleetwoods on front Street has been lost and while we are heartbroken our main priority is the safety of our dear staff and team members.
On behalf of myself and my family I share my heartfelt thoughts and prayers for the people of MAUI. We are committed to supporting the community and those affected by this disaster in the days month and years to come

The rock legend is far from the only person impacted by the fire. Lahaina is the former capitol of the Hawaiian Kingdom and home to many historical buildings and cultural artifacts, including King Kamehameha’s palace, The Old Lahaina Courthouse and the 150-year-old banyon tree
