Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham were dating when they joined Fleetwood Mac

Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks had a complex and sometimes tumultuous relationship that began before they joined Fleetwood Mac. The two stars have been friends, lovers, collaborators, enemies and rivals for most of their lives.

After meeting in high school, Buckingham invited Nicks to join his psychedelic rock band, Fritz. The group opened for artists like Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix before the couple decided to form their own duo, Buckingham Nicks.

Mick Fleetwood heard Buckingham’s guitar playing on the self-titled Buckingham Nicks album and invited him to join Fleetwood Mac. Buckingham agreed on one condition: Nicks had to be in the band as well.

The ‘Dreams’ singer said the couple’s relationship was already in trouble before joining Fleetwood Mac, and they stayed together longer than they should have because they didn’t want to break up the band.

In 2018, Fleetwood Mac fired Buckingham. The guitarist has said in several interviews that his former girlfriend was largely responsible for his firing, which Nicks has vehemently denied.

Stevie Nicks always said she would never get married because being an artist was too important to her and she wanted her music career to come first.

In a 2015 interview with Maclean’s, Nicks was asked when she knew she wouldn’t be getting married. “Right away!” she answered. “Early on in my relationship with Lindsey, I realized that being in a relationship with a very powerful and controlling man was probably not going to work for me in the future as an artist.”
