Fleetwood Mac album down to Nicks

Lindsey Buckingham says a new Fleetwood Mac album could only happen if Stevie Nicks wants it to — and he can understand why she wouldn’t.

The band are currently touring the UK and Europe. Former member Christine McVie made a guest appearance in London on Wednesday. She’s expected to do the same again tonight.

But the chances of the remaining band members making another full-length record may be reduced after Nicks enjoyed making her 2012 solo album In Your Dreams.

Buckingham tells M Music & Musicians: “She had a wonderful experience making that album. She hasn’t said this — this is just me — but, knowing Stevie, she’s probably thinking, ‘If I have to write five new songs, do I want to give them to Fleetwood Mac?’

“I think she’s feeling a bit protective and territorial about the experience she had doing her solo project. And I can totally relate to that.”

Mac have endured notoriously difficult internal relationships over the years, and guitarist Buckingham says it’s still the case up to a point.

“The way we do things is always a political minefield,” he reflects. “If it’s not Stevie, it’s me; someone is always causing trouble.

“I know Warner Brothers is dying to get an album from us, even though we’re not signed to them anymore. Stevie needs to come to the table with some material.

“In order to contemplate a new album, she has to want to do it.”
