Fleetwood Mac released a four track EP in 2013. One of those tracks was 'Without You', which began life as a poem written in 1970 and was also demoed for a potential second Buckingham Nicks album several years later. In 2010, the song was re-discovered on YouTube by Nicks's friends, and she suggested that it be recorded for the EP. Along with 'Sad Angel', 'Without You' was first performed on Fleetwood Mac's 2013 tour of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe. To give the performance context, Stevie introduced the song and soon these introductions became longer than the song itself.

Please note that 'Without You' was not recorded at every show on the 2013 tour, and so these transcripts have been cobbled together from source material of various completeness and quality. Sections of their speech which I could not determine with any degree of accuracy have been marked with (?). Enjoy.
