For some fans, the tense relationship between Fleetwood Mac’s members, particularly during the Rumours era, is as compelling as their discography. It’s a miracle that the band still exists after years of breakdowns and breakups while working together.
Working together does not require them to be best friends, but it certainly helps, especially for the band’s two female members. Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie are friends, right?
Are Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie friends?
Nicks and McVie formed an easy friendship while on tour. McVie said, “We shared rooms, did each other’s makeup, and lived on Dunkin’ Donuts.”
They also stood by each other when both of their relationships fell apart. When the band’s tensions rose, they knew they could rely on each other to have dinner together away from the chaos.
Though Nicks has stated that the band hasn’t been friends since 1976, this does not appear to be the case with McVie. Nicks describes McVie as her “mentor, sister, and best friend,” according to Harper’s Bazaar. McVie has praised her bandmate as well.
