Ah, that's probably why he became an American citizen

Aaa Rock drummer Mick Fleetwood and four others are suing a Portland (Me.) lawyer after they lost a contract dispute with the British Broadcasting Co.  Lawyer Paul McDonald represented Fleetwood (left -- yes, sadly, he really is that old) and his company, Bee Load, Ltd., in a suit against the BBC over the rights to archived music estimated to be worth as much as $100 million.  They lost.

The British-born Fleetwood claims his American lawyer never told him that under British law he would be personally responsible for the $4 million the BBC spent litigating the case.
