Fleetwood Mac Officially Over: Stevie Nicks Confirms End of Band

Stevie Nicks has confirmed that Fleetwood Mac is officially over. While many fans suspected this following the death of core member Christine McVie in November 2022, Nicks’ recent statement marks the first official confirmation.

Christine McVie’s Legacy in Fleetwood Mac

Christine McVie, a talented keyboardist and vocalist, joined Fleetwood Mac as a session musician in 1968 and became a full member two years later. She played a pivotal role in the band’s success, contributing timeless hits like ‘Don’t Stop’, ‘Everywhere’, and ‘Little Lies’. Despite several lineup changes, McVie’s songwriting and lead vocals remained a constant until her departure in 1998 when she entered semi-retirement.

McVie briefly reunited with Fleetwood Mac at London’s O2 Arena in 2013 and officially rejoined in 2014. Sadly, she passed away at 79 on November 30th, 2022, from a stroke and metastatic cancer.

Stevie Nicks on the Future of Fleetwood Mac

In a recent interview with Mojo, Stevie Nicks declared that Fleetwood Mac is officially over without Christine McVie. “Without Christine, no can do,” Nicks stated. “There is no chance of putting Fleetwood Mac back together in any way. Without her, it just couldn’t work.”

Nicks acknowledged that while the band managed without McVie for 16 years, the current circumstances are different. Lindsey Buckingham and Nicks handled much of McVie’s absence, but Buckingham’s firing in 2018 and subsequent health issues following open-heart surgery in 2019 further complicate any reunion plans. “Even if I thought I could work with Lindsey again, he’s had some health problems,” Nicks continued. “I’m not sure if Lindsey could do the kind of touring that Fleetwood Mac does, where you go out for a year and a half. It’s so demanding.”

Reflecting on the End of Fleetwood Mac

Nicks’ recent comments echo those she made in October last year, reflecting on her long friendship with McVie. “When she died, I figured we really couldn’t go any further with this. There’s no reason to.”

Currently, Stevie Nicks is touring the US and will return to Europe next month, including a headline set at London’s Hyde Park on July 12th.

This confirmation marks the end of an iconic era in rock music, solidifying that Fleetwood Mac is officially over.
