Fleetwood Mac - Entertainment Weekly (06.06.1997)

Buckingham says that going their own ways made hearts grow fonder, particularly between him and ex-paramour Nicks. "There were issues with Stevie I couldn't deal with 'till I left the band, which sounds ridiculous, since [she and I] broke up in '77 and I left the group in '87. But I came back a much more comfortable-with-myself person. Everyone's gone that route. The chemistry's there, without the baggage."
