It all comes down to Stevie Nicks. She’s the one person keeping Fleetwood Mac from completing their first album since 2003’s Say You Will, the band’s co-founder, drummer Mick Fleetwood, says.
He told Rolling Stone Fleetwood Mac have completed “a huge amount of recorded music,” but “none of it’s with Stevie. Or very little. Some of it is very, very old stuff that Lindsey [Buckingham] maybe did with her years and years ago. We’re not quite sure what will happen with it.
Fleetwood similarly blamed Nicks for a long-delayed Fleetwood Mac tour that was supposed to start in 2012, crediting an “obsession” with her solo career. Apparently, not much has changed. “She just doesn’t want to spend the time right now,” Fleetwood said. “And we’re quietly saddened about that, but also I sort of understand.”
