Fleetwood Mac Is Back!
Twenty-six years after the release of their smash album Rumours, Mac delivers Say You Will, their first studio effort since 1995. Though much has changed (the once-hard-partying band is now drug-free), Mac’s wistful sound is still the same-thanks in large part to trendsetting singer Stevie Nicks. The single 54-year-old, who splits her time between Phoenix and Southern California, chats with US.
You’ve toured for the better part of 30 years. Learn anything? That you have to take care of yourself. In the old days, we’d go straight to the bar after a concert. Well, we don’t do that anymore because we can’t!
But you still enjoy some rock-star perks, right? We have a 738 private jet. It’s like our own party!
The peasant look is in. Your style finally caught on! It feels terrific to know I had an effect on style, but I think those designers should send me money!
What kind of guy scores a date with Stevie Nicks? Someone who is not jealous of what I do and who digs my lifestyle. My life is fun, and for the right man, it would be a gas! But I’m never home, and it’s hard for a man to be left behind. So I never look for Mr. Right, but I know he can always walk into my life. I like that.
Is it strange sharing the stage with your ex, Lindsey Buckingham? Sometimes he takes me back to 1971-he’s still thin and pretty gorgeous. Often, I think we live in a parallel universe, where we’re not sure if it is 1973 or 2003.
