"We got a call maybe two weeks before the event," says Lindsey Buckingham. "I said to Stevie [Nicks], 'Do you think we can pull this off? We need to rehearse, right?' They wanted an hour, so we figured we could put together the workhorses for the set."
As for the rest of the band, Buckingham said the experiences were a mixed bag. "I think Mick [Fleetwood] just enjoyed the event. John [McVie] is a staunch Republican, so I think he was just taking it all pretty much in terms of the event itself. You also have to take the fact that [Clinton was] sitting twenty feet away. It didn't make me too nervous. I think it did make Stevie a little more nervous, because she doesn't have a guitar to hide behind."
