Stevie Nicks sees “no reason” for Fleetwood Mac to continue without Christine McVie.
“We did go out on the road and do a year-and-a-half tour with Neil Finn and Mike Campbell,” Nicks told Vulture. “We had a really great time and it was a huge tour. That was there in the realm of possibility. But when Christine died, I felt like you can’t replace her. You just can’t. Without her, what is it? You know what I mean?”
“She was like my soul mate, my musical soul mate, and my best friend that I spent more time with than any of my other best friends outside of Fleetwood Mac,” she added. “Christine was my best friend. Who am I going to look over to on the right and have them not be there behind that Hammond organ? When she died, I figured we really can’t go any further with this. There’s no reason to.”
McVie died of a stroke on November 30, 2022, at the age of 79. She had been suffering from metastatic cancer of unknown primary origin.
In a statement following her death, Fleetwood Mac said that she was “the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life.”
