When Fleetwood Mac's guitarist Bob Welch (who later had his own hits) announced he was leaving the band, Fleetwood "didn't miss a beat," he says.

"I phoned Keith Olsen up and said, 'You know that tape you played me down in the studio? Who was it? Because we're looking for a guitar player now.' "

To get the guitarist, the band had to accept another vocalist.

"I'm permanently cursed by Stevie. She said, 'Well, you didn't even WANT me '

"I said, 'Stevie, we were looking for a guitar player.'

"We learned after the fact, after the initial inquiry, that they were not only a creative duo, they were basically in as many words married.
