During the highly misogynistic era of the 1970s rock and roll scene, Fleetwood Mac singers Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie didn’t only collaborate musically but also formed a lasting friendship until McVie’s passing late last year.

In an October 2020 interview with CBS, Nicks shared:

“We made a pact at the very beginning.

“That if we were ever in a room of super famous guitar players that didn’t treat us with the respect that we thought that we deserved, that we would just stand up and say, ‘This party’s over,’ and we would walk out.”

She added:

“We made a pact that we would never accept being treated as second-class citizens in the music business.

“That when we walked into a room none of the uber-rockstar group of men would look through us. And they never did.”

Even after leaving the band, for Nicks, it was always going to be her and McVie. However, during the singer’s solo tour in 2021, Nicks had thought about what Fleetwood Mac would look like in the modern era and named an artist who could potentially join her and McVie as the band’s “third girl.”

While on the stage, Nicks mentioned the New Zealand pop star Lorde saying:

“I actually don’t know her, and I wish she was here.

“I was hoping I would get to cross paths with her. But I think she is so very talented. Like, if she had been my age, and lived our age, she probably would have been the third girl in Fleetwood Mac. So, if you run into her, please tell her that I’m looking for her.”

Although, technically Fleetwood Mac once had a third female vocalist, Bekka Bramlett, who replaced Nicks for one album, 1995’s Time before they changed into their Buckingham-Nicks era lineup for 1997’s The Dance.
