Stevie Nicks Rules Out Another Fleetwood Mac Album

Stevie Nicks loves her work but she has a definite idea of the direction it will take from now on.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Nicks talked about aging (she’s 68), the status of Fleetwood Mac and what she thinks she’ll be doing in the future.

The biggest revelation from the interview is that she doesn’t believe there will be another Fleetwood Mac album. While there was word that an album was in the works, it appears that is has become a duet project for members Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham. As far as another from the group:

I don’t think we’ll do another record. If the music business were different, I might feel different. I don’t think there’s any reason to spend a year and an amazing amount of money on a record that, even if it has great things, isn’t going to sell. What we do is go on the road, do a ton of shows and make lots of money. We have a lot of fun. Making a record isn’t all that much fun.

The band is already confirmed for the Classic East and Classic West festivals this summer and Nicks says that there will be another tour, probably at the end of the year. As for the band and her solo career, there is little chance of Stevie retiring.

I’ll never retire. My friend Doug Morris, who’s been president of, like, every record company, said to me once, “When you retire, you just get small.” Stand up straight, put on your heels, and get out there and do stuff. I want to do a miniseries for the stories of Rhiannon and the gods of Wales, which I think would be this fantastic thing, but I don’t have to retire from being a rock star to go and do that. I can fit it all in.
