But their second union was no more successful than the first, and having divorced again, he married third wife Lynn, mother of their twin girls.
Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks: 'Lindsey Buckingham and I will always be antagonising to each other'
You may not be surprised to learn that the couple are getting a divorce. After all this marital chaos, Fleetwood still appears to have a lot of affection for Nicks, and even believes they were connected in another life. She still has a hole bigger than a 5p piece in her septum. As hapless in personal finance as in love, Fleetwood says he never saved any money, and has no idea how much he earned or spent in those years.
Nobody consumed more than Nicks and Fleetwood, who is pictured backstage here. He admits he and his bandmates failed to see that fellow founding member, the brilliant guitarist Peter Green, had mental problems.
He blames these on the vast amount of LSD Green took — as did other band members. Still rocking: Fleetwood on stage in New York last year. The band have 40 tour dates lined up in the U. He started talking incessantly about religion and his disillusionment with the greedy, music industry. He wanted the rest of the band to donate all their profits to charity.
Green left the band in and became a recluse. The next guitarist to come unstuck was Danny Kirwan, whose problem was heavy drinking. He refused to play, and when his bandmates came off later and he tried to offer them tips on how to play better, his fate was sealed. Fleetwood sacked him. Kirwan would later spend periods living rough in London.
Weston died of a gastro-intestinal haemorrhage last year — within months, of another Mac guitarist, Bob Welch, committing suicide at 64 in his flat. Despite all this death and decline, the five members of Fleetwood Mac from the Rumours era soldier on. Christine became the last to rejoin in January. They have 40 tour dates lined up in the U. Which, given their reckless carousel of sex and drugs, is something of a miracle. Tuesday, Feb 19th 5-Day Forecast.

19 Things You Might Not Know About Fleetwood Mac
Queen Letizia of Spain steps out in chic black and white number as she attends the arts ceremony in Andalusia Stylish Pixie Geldof takes to the catwalk in casual monochrome tracksuit and minimal make-up for Pringle Of Scotland LFW show Hitting the runway The star Matt Healy reveals he was 'slapped about for being different' before finding fame The Musical gala night Ultimately, it went on to sell eight million copies. Impressive for a double album, but in comparison to 25 million, a relative failure. Other band members were not slow to point the finger at Buckingham. There was open hostility.
The initially disappointing sales of Tusk were boosted by a mammoth date world tour, on which every date was recorded for a live album. When a battle-weary Fleetwood Mac ended the Tusk tour at the Hollywood Bowl in late , they were physically and mentally drained and barely able to stand the sight of each other. Nicks, Buckingham and Fleetwood all made solo albums. But when only the former was successful, accountants and record company executives were soon agitating for another Fleetwood Mac album, and the band reconvened to make Mirage.
Released in , it was an unsatisfactory album that lacked either the raw emotion of Rumours or the runaway ambition which Buckingham had injected into Tusk. It sounded like a record made for the sole and cynical purpose of sustaining the Fleetwood Mac brand. For me, none of the albums after Tusk quite had it. I think we lost something after that. But we missed a vital ingredient. Along the way he went bankrupt and was relieved of his duties as band manager. Much of his money went up his nose on drugs, although he insists even more was lost on property deals that went wrong.
It was fun, but it was a bloody nightmare and I would never do it again. It became boring and sordid. Her use had begun as much as a way of coping as a means of getting high.
I was doing a lot of drugs just to get me through to the next thing. But we spent an awful lot of money on it. And with coke you can stay up way too late. And the payback is a bitch.
Nobody should go through what I went through. There was a little bit of fun. It creeps me out to talk about it even now. Tammy Wynette was a fellow patient. I was as strong as an ox and I felt great. I could feel myself starting to glow again and I was totally excited about my life. Nobody around her believed she could stay clean and her friends collectively intervened to persuade her to visit a psychiatrist. Fatefully — and almost fatally — he prescribed a tranquilliser called Klonopin. Nicks is still angry to this day about what happened. One at morning and one at night.
Within a couple of months that turned into four little blue pills. Then it became 15 blue pills. He kept increasing my dose. I was in there every two weeks for an hour and he watched me grow heavier and the light went out in my eyes. If I started to run out, I would start to shake so hard people would stare at me.
I was sick and high and miserable and overweight. I knew I was going to die. My skin peeled off. I had a terrible headache.
The Most Infamous Love Triangles in Rock History
She cannot help an involuntary shudder as she tells the story. Nicks survived. But she is understandably bitter. And nobody tells you that. Half the time Mick was falling asleep. We spent a year on the record but we only saw Stevie for a few weeks. But he excludes nobody from his strictures. I think of it as our darkest period. Mick was pretty nuts then. We all were. That was the worst recording experience of my life. Fleetwood Mac Mr. Extended Play.
