Stevie Nicks Recently Expressed Regret At Not Being Able to Say Goodbye to Christine McVie

It is significant for Stevie Nicks to honor her friend Christine McVie during the London show, because she previously expressed her sadness at not being able to say goodbye to McVie before she passed away. In an interview with Mojo in June, Nicks reflected on McVie’s death and whether or not Fleetwood Mac could ever get back together without her.

“It was all stunningly strange, because there wasn’t any lead up to it,” said Nicks. “We got a call, and I was going to rent a plane and go see her, but her family said, ‘Don’t come, because she may not be here tomorrow.’ And the next day, she passed away.”

She continued, sharing that she wanted to sit by her bed and sing to her, joking, “which definitely would have made her pass away faster.” She added, somberly, “But I needed to be with her. And I didn’t get to do that. So that was very hard for me. I didn’t get to say goodbye.”

On whether or not Fleetwood Mac could return, Nicks said, “When Christine died, I felt like you can’t replace her. You just can’t. Without her, what is it? You know what I mean? There is no chance of putting Fleetwood Mac back together in any way. Without her, it just couldn’t work.”
