ALTHOUGH FLEETWOOD MAC are working on songs for a new album, this record could be as a complicated to make relationship-wise as some of their classics, Lindsey Buckingham hinted has to MOJO.
With all five members of the current line-up speaking in individual, extensive interviews in the new edition of MOJO (July 2015/ #260), out now in the UK, the guitarist says he’s working on material with Christine McVie, who recently re-joined the band, but fellow singer – and former partner – Stevie Nicks is not so keen to collaborate again.
“Christine had some rough ideas for new songs, and was very interested in me hearing them and taking them to a more recordable level,” he explains. “And I had a bunch of stuff that was just tracks with suggested melodies and we exchanged ideas and the synergy was immediate – and transcendent, in my opinion.”
“I don’t know whether or not Stevie Nicks will come to the table for an album.”
However Nicks is less on board, at the moment, Buckingham tells MOJO’s Jim Irvin.
“I think Stevie’s a little torn. It has a lot to do with her life in general and trying to figure out what means something to her,” suggests the guitarist.
“I don’t know whether or not she’ll come to the table for an album. I hope she does... I think it scares her a little.”
