Nearly six months after Christine McVie died, Stevie Nicks is speaking out about the death of her former Fleetwood Mac bandmate.
According to a video shared on TwitterOn Monday, Stevie provided an update about his performance during his concert in Atlanta. Specifically, Stevie thanked Taylor Swift for another recent song of hers that helped him process the loss of Christine.
“Thank you Taylor Swift for doing me a favor, and that is, writing a song called ‘You’re on Your Own, Kid,'” Stevie said at the concert, according to the video.
Stevie said of the song’s message, “How I feel, it’s sad and how it relates to Christine’s death”, noting that he and his former collaborator “were not phone buddies”.
“We’d go back to Fleetwood Mac, and we’d walk in and just be like, ‘Little sister, how are you?’ Stewie said. “It was like not even a minute went by. There’s never been an argument in our entire 47 years. Never. So when we were both, we were both on our own, baby,” she said.
Like the message in Taylor’s song, Stevie is learning to live on his own without Christine. “We always were, and now I have to learn to be on my own, baby, by myself.”
After Christine’s death last year, Stevie made a statement. “A few hours ago I was told that my best friend in the whole world since the first day of 1975 has passed away,” she wrote, noting that she had hoped to sing Haim’s “Hallelujah” for Christine. But don’t get the opportunity to do so.
This isn’t the first time Stevie has spoken positively about Taylor. In 2010, the two performed together at the Grammys, performing “Rhiannon” by Fleetwood Mac and “You Belong With Me?” by Taylor.
