Famously, Nicks’ and Buckingham’s real-life love affair ended spectacularly a year later. Every conflicting emotion ended up on Rumours, then years of silent animosity.
“We are in a very good place now,” Nicks says. “We are having a lot of fun on stage and for those 2½ hours we get up there and belong to each other. And we get to enjoy all the things we have worked for all these years.”
Nicks is still incredibly prolific. When she felt her songs for the latest Mac album, Say You Will, were not up to scratch, she asked for 30 days to write a new batch.
She returned with a cassette demo. By the fourth song, Buckingham was in tears. For Nicks, it was the ultimate compliment.
