Nicks gets BMI honor, talks of Fleetwood Mac reunion

Associated Press

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Stevie Nicks thought former bandmate Christine McVie was joking when she told her that she wanted to go on tour with Fleetwood Mac last year.

"I'm like, 'Well, you've convinced us over 16 years that you were never coming back. You finally, actually convinced us. So, are you kidding?'" Nicks said.

McVie was serious.

And Fleetwood Mac is finally back to its most successful configuration, which also includes Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and Christine's ex-husband John McVie, who was treated for cancer last year.

Their 33-city tour, "On With the Show," starts Sept. 30 in Minneapolis. McVie, 70, last toured with the band in 1998.

Nicks, 65, made the comments Tuesday night when she was honored with an icon award from music-rights management group Broadcast Music Inc.

Adam Levine, Sheryl Crow, Lady Antebellum and Shakira paid tribute to Nicks with performances at the annual BMI Pop Awards in Beverly Hills, California.

Nicks, who received the honor for writing well-known tunes for Fleetwood Mac and for her solo career, says the band is working on new music.

he's still working solo, too: Her upcoming album will feature songs she has written and, in some cases, performed over the years, that fans asked to be properly recorded.

"We went onto YouTube and we found all the songs that, somehow, were taken from my house or picked up or loaned out or whatever ... and we went to Nashville and we recorded 17 songs," she said. "So they're like all starting from like 1969 maybe? I call them my 24-carat gold songs."
