Mick Fleetwood: I Still Love Stevie Nicks

Of all the bands to come out of the Golden Age of Rock, none carried as much emotional baggage into the studio as Fleetwood Mac.

While recording their 1977 album Rumors – which featured such hit singles as Go Your Own Way and You Make Loving Fun John and Christie McVie were separ- ating, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham were breaking up, and Mick Fleetwood was divorcing his wife.

During that tumultuous period, Mick and Stevie also hooked up, only to go their own ways after the pairing proved too painful.

Twenty-eight years later, however – with the band embarking on its first tour in five years – Mick tells BlogTalkRadio that his relationship with Stevie is as solid as ever.

“Do you still love her,” World Talk Live! host Brett Cohen asks him.

“Oh, absolutely. She’s one of my dearest, dearest friends. And it’s a great part of my life and her life,” the drummer, who has a new, non- Fleetwood Mac album out titled Blue Again, replies.

“We’ve shared a lot of things in terms of Fleet- wood Mac and we continue to have the partnership that has spanned a huge amount of time,” he adds.

Not only is the one-time couple still tight, but Stevie’s a member of the family.

“She’s a mighty good godmother, I might add, to my two beautiful twin daughters.”
