Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie quit Fleetwood Mac

LOS ANGELES — To paraphrase Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 hit, singers Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie have decided to “go their own way.”

The singers announced yesterday that they are leaving Fleetwood Mac. According to publicist Mitchell Schneider, Nicks will concentrate on her solo career. McVie, who has been with the band for 20 years, has not made her future plans known.

McVie and Nicks will perform 30 more dates with the band on its current U.S. tour.

Drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie will carry on with guitarists Billy Burnette and Rick Vito. The guitarists joined the band after the departure of Lindsey Buckingham in 1987.

The singers’ departure heightened speculation that Mick Fleetwood’s forthcoming autobiography My Life and Adventures with Fleetwood Mac, has heightened tensions within the band. The book reportedly details numerous romantic liaisons within the band, including an affair between the drummer and Nicks.

Schneider, however, said the breakup is “definitely not because of the book.”

Fleetwood Mac’s current album Behind the Mask has sold 2 million copies worldwide. The band’s 1977 Rumours album was one of the best-selling albums in history, with more than 13 million copies sold in the United States.
