Stevie Nicks is opening up about the future of Fleetwood Mac.
When asked if she could envision the group touring again after the death of Christine McVie, her longtime friend and bandmate, the "Edge of Seventeen" singer, 75, told Vulture, "There's no reason to."
"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?" Nicks said.
"She was like my soul mate, my musical soul mate, and my best friend that I spent more time with than any of my other best friends outside of Fleetwood Mac," she continued. "Christine was my best friend."
Nicks then referred to Taylor Swift's song "You're on Your Own, Kid" -- specifically the lyric "You're on your own, kid / You always have been" -- saying she and McVie related to that line.
"We were on our own in that band. We always were. We protected each other," she reflected. "When she died, I figured we really can't go any further with this. There's no reason to."
McVie, who wrote the songs "Don't Stop" and "You Make Loving Fun" off the iconic Fleetwood Mac album "Rumours," died in November 2022 at the age of 79.
Nicks mourned her death in a social media post at the time, calling McVie "my best friend in the whole world" and signing the note, "See you on the other side, my love. Don't forget me."
