Fleetwood Mac, Rolling Stone, Annie Leibovitz, Rumours, 1977

Fleetwood Mac’s Leibovitz RS cover featured in ‘The Photo Issue’

Fleetwood Mac’s (in)famous Annie Leibovitz photograph (March 24, 1977) appears in the November 2, 2017 issue of Rolling Stone (Tom Petty: 1950-2017/The Photo Issue).

Fleetwood Mac posed for their first ROLLING STONE cover shortly before Rumours took over the world. But the romantic turmoil they laid bare on that album also made Annie Leibovitz’s idea for the shoot — the whole band, together on a bed — tricky. Christine McVie didn’t want to be near her ex, John McVie, and Stevie Nicks didn’t want to be besides Lindsey Buckingham. Nicks ended up in Mick Fleetwood’s arms — a hint of a torrid affair to come. “I don’t know how healthy all this display of our personal life was,” said Buckingham. “But that’s showbiz.”

Stevie Says...
If I'm not vulnerable, I won't ever wrote any more songs about vulnerability, and then what am I doing? I need to help people. I need make people believe that it's all right to be vulnerable and to be a little naive, and to be still sweet and kind and good.
