In the 1970s, Fleetwood Mac was embroiled in one of rock history’s most infamous love triangles. Stevie Nicks, along with bandmates Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood, navigated the complexities of romance while creating music that would define an era.

Nicks reflected on her early years with Buckingham, admitting that their relationship was challenged by the demands of their burgeoning music careers. They consciously postponed their breakup to preserve the band’s unity, recognizing its potential impact on their collective success.

“You just have to throw yourself into your song… If we had broken up the second month of being in Fleetwood Mac, it would have blown the whole thing.” – Stevie Nicks

However, as time went on, the strain became too much, leading to a poignant end of their romantic journey in 1976, just before recording their acclaimed album, “Rumours.”

Mick Fleetwood

Mick Fleetwood, the band’s drummer, also found himself entangled in matters of the heart during the recording of “Rumours.” Fleetwood had recently remarried, while Nicks was dealing with her own romantic complexities. Their brief affair, though short-lived, added another layer of intensity to an already emotionally charged period.

“Never in a million years could you have told me that would happen… Everybody was angry.” – Stevie Nicks

The affair ultimately ended, with both realizing that continuing would jeopardize the band they held dear.

In 1977, Nicks found solace in the arms of Don Henley, a founding member of the Eagles. Their romance followed Nicks’ previous entanglement with Fleetwood. While Henley provided guidance in their shared musical world, his lavish lifestyle introduced Nicks to a new level of extravagance.

“He was responsible and I blame him every day… Once you learn to live like that, there’s no going back.” – Stevie Nicks

Their relationship eventually ended, but their connection remained, with Henley featuring on Nicks’ solo album, “Bella Donna.”

Kim Anderson

In a turn of events driven by grief, Nicks married Kim Anderson, the widower of her best friend. Their union, born out of a desire to support one another, proved to be a “terrible, terrible mistake.” The marriage ended swiftly, but Nicks maintained a close bond with Anderson’s family, especially her godson Matthew, who she cherishes to this day.

“We didn’t get married because we were in love… we were grieving.” – Stevie Nicks

From 1983 to 1986, Nicks was romantically linked with Joe Walsh, an Eagles singer and guitarist, whom she fondly referred to as her “greatest love.” Their connection was immediate and profound, but the weight of their individual battles with substance abuse led to their eventual separation.

“I looked at him… and two seconds later I crawled into his lap, and that was it.” – Stevie Nicks

Despite their love story’s ending, Walsh held a special place in Nicks’ heart.
