music news 19/02/2021

Christine McVie has put the record straight after a recent interview was spun making it sounds like she confirmed Fleetwood Mac's days as a band were over.

Speaking to BBC Radio 2, Christine answered a question about what the future holds for the iconic band "If we do, it would be without John [McVie] and Stevie [Nicks], I think... "I think I'm getting a bit too old for it now - especially having had a year off. I don't know if I could get myself back into it again."

But after Christine's comments of doubt made waves in the music industry, a statement was provided to Rolling Stone where McVie expressed suprise at how her comments got so much attention.

"First and foremost, I’m thrilled to see that everyone still cares so much about Fleetwood Mac, how humbling to know what a lasting impact this band has had," she said.

"To clarify my recent comments, I was specifically asked if Fleetwood Mac would tour again. I gave a cheeky answer indicating that the band might be ‘done with that’ or ‘you just never know.’ I always intended to convey that, particularly after the last year, we just don’t know what the future holds."

"In no way are any members of Fleetwood Mac ‘done’ with being part of the band,” she continues.

"If anyone took that from my statement, that was a misperception and not intended. Fleetwood Mac is part of the DNA of who I am, and I know the same is true for Stevie, Mick and John. As for future touring………Who knows. We continue to hope for the best."
