Fleetwood Mac Unleashed: Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham speak

Alan Light,, February 2009

A FEW WEEKS ago in Los Angeles, the members of Fleetwood Mac – Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, and Stevie Nicks – gathered together to run through songs in preparation for their "Unleashed" tour. "We did the entire set, totally unplugged," said Stevie Nicks. "We laughed about the songs, about what was going on when we wrote each one – what we thought it was about, and what it was really about. One of our back-up singers was asking all these questions like she was interviewing us. It's such a shame we didn't film all the little stories, because it was really all coming out."
