In Front of Bill Clinton, Stevie Nicks Had an Embarrassing Moment

It seemed only natural that Fleetwood Mac would perform at Bill Clinton’s inauguration after the band’s song “Don’t Stop” served as the campaign’s soundtrack.

They reunited at the Inaugural Ball after years of feuding and a band breakup.

Stevie Nicks had an awkward moment in front of the new president while attempting to engage him in the performance.

The Fleetwood Mac of the Rumours era had disbanded by 1991.

In 1987, Lindsey Buckingham left the band, and Nicks and Christine McVie announced that they would no longer tour in 1990.

“I don’t think any of us will ever forget [the inaugural gala],” Nicks told The Miami Herald, according to Howe.

“Knowing we were walking out [on stage]because Bill Clinton wanted us was surreal.”

That night, we felt like royalty.”

Nicks gave Clinton the tambourine she uses during performances when Clinton joined the band onstage.

Nicks explained, “I started to move toward him, and he got this terrified look on his face.”

“All I did was hand him my tambourine and tell him, ‘Go to it, Mr.’

And he did — he rocked out.”
