One is a World Cup-winning All Blacks captain. The other is an all-time queen of rock and roll.
But it appears they share a respect for each other.
Richie McCaw has posted a photo of him meeting Fleetwood Mac singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks on his Facebook page. The pair met backstage at Fleetwood Mac’s concert at Mt Smart Stadium, Auckland, on Saturday night.
An absolute privilege meeting the legend Stevie Nicks at last nights Fleetwood Mac concert! An All Blacks fan to boot.

Also present: All Blacks coach Steve Hansen, his wife Tash, and McCaw’s girlfriend Gemma Flynn. In the photo, the gang crowds around Nicks, who holds a 2015 world cup All Blacks jersey.
“An absolute privilege meeting the legend Stevie Nicks at last night’s Fleetwood Mac concert! An All Blacks fan to boot,” McCaw wrote with the post.
Most Kiwis commenting thought Nicks was the lucky one.
In an earlier post, McCaw said he and Flynn were “huge fans” of Fleetwood Mac.
During the band’s set, Nicks revealed she was a big All Blacks fan.
She said she had stayed up late to watch New Zealand beat Australia in the 2015 Rugby World Cup final. Initially she only intended to watch the haka, but was so enchanted by the display, and with McCaw in particular, that she watched for the rest of the match.
Around 38,000 people turned out for Saturday’s show at Mt Smart stadium, braving high winds and rain.
