Stevie Nicks says there is no Fleetwood Mac without Christine

Although Fleetwood Mac was formed by Mick Fleetwood and John McVie in 1967, the most commercially successful line-up was formed in 1975 when Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined the band. Besides them, was also part of the group since 1970, the keyboardist and singer Christine McVie.


After disagreements, Buckingham left the group in 2018 but they continued together without him. But now, the singer Stevie Nicks said that Fleetwood Mac can’t reunite anymore because they can’t do it without Christine McVie, who passed away back in 2022 at the age of 79, a victim of a stroke.

Stevie Nicks says there is no Fleetwood Mac without Christine

“Without Christine, no can do. There is no chance of putting Fleetwood Mac back together in any way. Without her, it just couldn’t work

“Even if I thought I could work with Lindsey again, he’s had some health problems. It’s not for me to say, but I’m not sure if Lindsey could do the kind of touring that Fleetwood Mac does, where you go out for a year and half. It’s so demanding,” Stevie Nicks told Mojo magazine.

Although Nicks says that a reunion wouldn’t work with Christine, she wasn’t part of the band from 1998 to 2014. Since 2018, Fleetwood Mac have two additional touring members, which are the guitarists Mike Campbell (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers) and Neil Finn (Crowded House).

Meanwhile, Nicks continues to tour on her own and has many scheduled tour dates for 2024. Besides songs from her solo career, she is also performing Fleetwood Mac tracks live.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
