“I
stopped in my tracks and sat down on the floor and started to cry. I understood what she was singing about. I understood that the pain was real… and I understood that it had happened to me. When the song ended, I called my assistant to tell her that one day, I would sing this song with LeAnn. It was our destiny.”

January:
Fleetwood Mac receive the prestigious MusiCares Person of the Year honor at Radio City Music Hall in New York. 

On May 26th, I’ll be 70 years old. (…) We have 90-year-old fans that are still out there, they just can’t make it to the show. So those people played our music for their babies in their cribs. And then those babies grew up and played ‘Rumours’ and ‘Tusk’ and Fleetwood Mac ‘Fleetwood Mac’ for their babies, and then those babies grew up and then those babies played it for their babies. I mean, all the babies! I watched them grow up. I watched little tiny Rhiannon and now she’s all grown up and has two kids, it’s like amazing. So the appreciation that we have to all the original 90-year-old people is amazing. (…) So anyway, I just want you to understand one thing. We don’t ever forget how amazing you are and we never don’t appreciate you.”

September:
Fleetwood Mac at iHeart Radio Music Festival 


“During the band’s set, Stevie showed how amazing she sounds, how gracefully she moves and how flawless she looks.
Nicks slayed on every song the band performed – “The Chain,” “Little Lies,” “Second Hand News,” “Gold Dust Woman,” and of course, their closer, the group’s classic hit, “Don’t Stop.” Her voice was full and smooth, and if it’s changed since she started out, it’s only because it’s gotten better.”

“I
have a lot to say about this but I will save those words for later. For now I will just say, I have been in a band since 1968. To be recognized for my solo work makes me take a deep breath and smile. It’s a glorious feeling.”
