Rumours (Fleetwood Mac) Easter Egg - Penguins

John MacVie has a fondness for penguins. He has one tatooed on his right forearm (as can be seen in one of the sleeve-notes pictures). There are also two cartoon penguins wearing top hats in the sleeve-notes (though not exactly hidden)and one stood next to the lake in the jungle scene on the front of Tango In The Night. I don't have any other Fleetwood Mac albums so I haven't checked but maybe someone has spotted some more.

There is also a penguin on the cover of the box for 25 Years- The Chain. It is the Penguin tattoo on John's arm.

If you were around when Rumours was released, you may recall the ads on TV featured animated penguins skating (I don't know if there's any significance to having them skating).

There are penguins seen in almost every Fleetwood Mac album made since 1972. On "Future Games" rather than showing John's face is a photo (taken by John) of a penguin. On the cover for 1973's "Mystery To Me" there is a cartoon penguin walking up the beach to the gorilla eating the cake. Then came 1973's "Penguin" which obviously features a penguin right there on the cover! 1974's "Heroes are Hard To Find" you seen John's tattoo. "Fleetwood Mac" shows penguins on the lyric sheet. "Tusk" has penguins scattered thruout the inner sleeve artwork. "Live" has them seen in photo montage inside. "Mirage" has a penguin wearing a beret on the lyric sheet (the album was recording in France). 1987's "Tango In The Night" has one in the jungle scene on the cover. "Greatest Hits" has one in the group photo on the back of the album. 1993's "Time" has a penguin coming out of an egg on the cover. The only albums that don't show a penguin are "Behind The Mask", "The Dance" and "Say You Will".
