Christine McVie, according to Stevie Nicks, knew how to keep Lindsey Buckingham calm whenever he and Nicks were fighting.
Christine McVie appears to have been the glue that held Fleetwood Mac together during their darkest days.
Despite the fact that her own marriage to the band’s bassist, John McVie, had ended, drummer Mick Fleetwood had divorced, and Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham had split up, she was virtually the only one who remained calm.
When Nicks and Buckingham got into a fight, McVie was the only one who could calm him down.

Her demeanor, on the other hand, was quite different from Nicks’.
There’s a YouTube video of Nicks and McVie attempting to record a Happy Birthday video for Warner Bros., for example.
McVie tries and fails to get Nicks to concentrate on filming the video, but Nicks just can’t stop laughing.
McVie had the maternal instincts of a mother hen.
“We all drank a lot and did a lot of cocaine, we partied a lot,” McVie told Harper’s Bazaar.
“With the exception of the time I threw a cake out the window and it landed on top of a taxi.”
In the group, I was known as the “good girl.”
