Lindsey Buckinham & Stevie Nicks Enjoying A 'Love-Fest' On The Road
It's safe to say that Fleetwood Mac's 2013 tour carries none of the baggage that plagued so many of the band's previous outings. Over 35 years since splitting as lovers, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks are admittedly closer than they've been since their pre-fame Buckingham Nicks days, and are enjoying a personal and creative resurgence.
 
Buckingham, who in the past could barely hide his vitriol in the songs he composed about Nicks following their bitter split, admits that age and time has softened the former couple considerably: "We're sort of finding that, y'know, we're in this kind of a love fest between Stevie and me out there, which is great. Y'know, it's sort of karmic after all this time it's very of sweet that we're able to sort of tap into that. On more of an overview level. . . I don't know. . . I think we're playing better, or as well as we've ever played."
 
When talking about Fleetwood Mac's new digital EP, Extended Play, Buckingham told us that the original plan was only to release a single, but at Stevie Nicks' urging, the project became more substantial: "Originally we were just gonna drop a couple of tracks on iTunes. And it was actually Stevie's idea to make it from two songs and then suddenly it became three, and then suddenly it was f our, so we decided to make it an EP. And that's, that's the way it went."
