For my Twin Sheila, my Kentucky Woman
” ….there cannot be a little gain without some loss, and a little redemption without forgiveness.”
I don’t follow celebrity stories even though I can be passionate by certain musical artists. Yet there is a love story from the pages of rock n roll that makes what I just said about following celebrities untrue.
Stevie Nicks & Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac had a love story that set souls on fire. Much of the band‘s music written during the periods 1969 & throughout until the early 80’s was inspired by the band mates personal lives. Especially Nicks & Buckingham The members lived together pretty much as a family with Mick Fleetwood over-seeing them all.. Nick’s was just a teenage girl when she joined forces with Peter Green‘s Fleetwood Mac, forever changing the history of the then strictly blues band.
I’ll not go into ‘gossip’ covering Nicks & Buckingham’s love story except to say it was by all accounts passionate, tumultuous, and awe-inspiring. Still following the two artists I cam across the following video of their performance in 20o4 that I had never seen.
I want to share with my Fleetwood Mac friends. And to those who are just hopeless romantics.
It is told that after closing the show with this tune Lindsey turned, and kissed Stevie on the forehead & cheek. Then hand in hand they exited the stage together.
Lindsey had tears in his eyes.
