Christine McVie Return To Fleetwood Mac Reignited Band

Stevie Nicks is thankful Fleetwood Mac is no longer a ‘boys’ club’.

The 66-year-old music icon released her eighth solo studio album in October, amid her band’s grand On with the Show world tour. And she has described what it’s like to have former bandmate Christine McVie back on the team.

‘It’s not the boys’ club anymore,’ she explained to Access Hollywood. ‘Now Christine and Stevie are back to being their very ‘force of nature’ selves.’

Stevie also spoke about what it was like when Christine quit the band back in 1998, after being with them for 30 years. With the gender balance very male heavy, things apparently lost their feminine touch.

‘We’re in touch with our feminine selves again. Without her it became very masculine,’ she said.

Fleetwood Mac is known not only for their trail of smash hits over their active years, but also their drama. Stevie famously dated their guitarist Lindsey Buckingham for numerous years.

Their relationship was notoriously reflected in their 1977 album Rumours. Stevie says although it’s all in the past, she hasn’t forgotten how it felt.

‘It doesn’t still hurt but it’s still reality. It’s still real,’ she told the outlet.

Stevie’s latest solo album is called 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault. According to her, it’s filled with tracks that never quite made the final cut of her previous albums.

‘These are the golden songs,’ she smiled. ‘These are the songs that should have gone on many different records from 1975 up, and didn’t for many reasons.’
