In other news regarding Fleetwood Mac, During an interview featuring The New Yorker back in 2015, Stevie Nicks discussed what she felt, Christine McVie brought to Fleetwood Mac. Nicks’ response was as follows: “She brings the funny. And the funny is very, very important,” Nicks explained. “And that is what is, to me, besides her beautiful songs and her beautiful presence, the fact that she’s such a comedienne, and she just makes us all laugh is, to me, the most precious part of the whole thing. What you do notice is how much you missed that. Without her, it was a much more serious band. With her, it’s much more lighthearted. So that right there makes the whole thing easier.”
