Christine McVie looks into the camera and asks, “How does it feel being a sex symbol in rock ’n’ roll?” Hanging out backstage on Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 world tour, McVie, the band’s keyboardist, looks as if she’s had a few vodka tonics (and if this night was like most on the Rumours tour, probably a fair amount of 
cocaine, too). She pauses for the perfect comedic beat, then delivers: “I don’t know; ask Stevie Nicks.” Her blond shag and shiny caftan shake as she emits a husky laugh. “Oh, listen, Stevie’s gonna know I’m kidding,” she says in her proper English accent. The two women of Fleetwood Mac have always been friends. There’s no need for competition when their roles are so clear: Nicks in front, twirling seductively in her shawls; McVie in back, stealthily ruling the keyboards. If Nicks is the band’s witchy goddess, McVie is its warrior queen, strong and steady. She’s also one of its key creative forces, having written half the songs on the band’s Greatest Hits album.

And so in 1998, McVie sent Fleetwood Mac into a midlife crisis of sorts when she announced she was quitting the band. After 28 years of late nights, she was done living out of a suitcase, finished with recording studios and sold-out arenas. She was also increasingly scared to fly. A few years earlier, she’d bought a rambling old manor in the English countryside, and, at age 54, the quiet life beckoned. “I did my last show, got everything shipped out from the house in L.A., went to catch my last flight back to London,” she says, “and didn’t look back.”

Until now. At age 71, after almost 20 years out of the spotlight, McVie has returned. She’ll crisscross North America with Fleetwood Mac on a 40-city megatour this fall, playing Katy Perry–size venues from Boston to Portland. “Serendipity is the only word I can think of to describe it,” she tells me over coffee and salmon-and-cream-cheese sandwiches at her London pied-à-terre. It’s in a modern building overlooking the Thames but made cozy with an overstuffed sofa, a leather chair, lots of Persian rugs, and keyboards pushed up against the floor-to-ceiling windows. McVie looks decades younger than her years and exudes well-earned rocker cool. She wears a simple tank top and jeans with a silver-plate belt and a tangle of bracelets. Her 
shaggy blond hair is almost identical to her Rumours-era cut, her skin so tan it’s as if she never left California.

“Since she’s been back, I’m already feeling the steadying effect of her presence,” says Mick Fleetwood, Fleetwood Mac’s drummer and jovial father figure. “There is no doubt that there was a void in the chemistry of the band. The band rose successfully to the creative withdrawal, but emotionally…the balance was challenged.”

Stevie sounds pretty amazing on this... just her and a piano, which I don't think she's ever done before.

"What is to become of me
And I’m unsure
I can’t see my way
And, he says
Lady, you don’t have to see”

After the on-air promise to bring back the mac in 2014…. if Christine McVie rejoined the band… they are keeping their word!

Once again WBWC 88.3FM The Sting will be hitting the airwaves with 18 hours of Fleetwood Mac including many hits, live recordings and deep dark cuts for the die-hard fans. They don't even have a Cleveland date on the tour, but they're still going on… 

2013's  FM Marathon was a huge success - Dave, Nikki and Todd had a blast featuring all the band's incredible music, (something from each of the 16 different line-ups!). All three will be back on the air in Cleveland for another round of great music.

Tune in Thursday August 21st, as part of the 2014 Summer Marathon Series on 88.3FM and wbwc.com from 7am to 1am EST (on air and live streaming).

Giveaways and on-air guests including a live chat with Richard Dashut. More info to come.

If you were around last year, 2013's marathon was a highly entertaining 18 hours of Fleetwood Mac music! Obscure live and studio tracks you love but never hear on the radio were featured. It was as if Fleetwood Mac had their own channel - nothing but non-stop Mac!  So save the date and check it out... I'll post another reminder closer to the date.

"Directing Stevie Nicks - things like that just don't happen in real life" - Alfonso Gomez-Rejon American Horror Story

7 Questions with ‘American Horror Story’ Director Alfonso

The Wrap had 7 questions for Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon about American Horror Story - Coven and here are the two regarding Stevie.

What was the toughest thing you had to do this season?
Alfonso Gomez-Rejon: Finishing the last episode of the “Coven” season, “The Seven Wonders,” was definitely the toughest thing. It was an impossible — undoable — schedule, resolving every storyline, with heavy VFX, stunts, etc. But we had a hard out at 4 a.m.  Hours later, actors would be on planes and sets would be taken down. I had two full crews going in adjoining soundstages. I'd run back and forth between them, setting up a shot here, shooting there, changing the cast on set and rushing them back to the other stage, and so on. We finally wrapped a few minutes shy of 4 thanks to the heroic work of every department, particularly my VFX supervisor, who was directing the 2nd unit. Our last shot was Frances Conroy as Myrtle throwing glitter in the air (for the Stevie Nicks “video” opening of the episode). A surreal but poignant ending to the show followed by a lot of champagne.

What was the most fun thing you had to do this season?
Directing Stevie Nicks — things like that just don't happen in real life. I stopped by her trailer in the morning to introduce myself and within minutes she was singing “Rhiannon” a cappella to me. She was fun, generous, humble and a great raconteur. I'm especially proud of her final scene as she plays “Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You” to Jessica Lange‘s Fiona Goode. It's so touching that you forget that she just drowned someone in a bathtub.

Check out the rest of the article at The Wrap

The American Horror Story: Coven season will be released on DVD October 7th.  Two episodes include Stevie Nicks and a great majority of the season contains either Fleetwood Mac or Stevie Nicks music.  Pre-Order at Amazon.
