The 72-year-old has been singing with Fleetwood Mac for almost half a century. But now she fears for her voice in the face of coronavirus. Stevie Nicks revealed her worries in a journal post shared on her Twitter account.
Expressing deep concerns over the pandemic’s effects across the US, the Fleetwood Mac star wrote: “Are you aware, everyone, that if you survive this virus you will be fighting the after-effects for the rest of your life?
“Micro-blood clots in all your organs; in your brain, neurological problems; a cough that rips your throat apart and keeps coming back.
“If I get it, I will probably never sing again.
“Put me on a ventilator and I will be hoarse for the rest of my life. I don’t have much time… I am 72 years old….”
Back in February this year, the late Fleetwood Mac co-founder was honoured at a tribute concert by Mick and a whole host of rock legends.
The star-studded show took place at the London Palladium in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.
Those who performed and attended included Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.
Also, Oasis’ Noel Gallagher, The Who’s Pete Townshend, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Fleetwood Mac’s Neil Finn and Christine McVie. John Mayall, who let Green replace Eric Clapton in the Bluesbreakers, was also there.
According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Fleetwood said: “The concert is a celebration of those early blues days where we all began.
“And it’s important to recognise the profound impact Peter and the early Fleetwood Mac had on the world of music.
“Peter was my greatest mentor and it gives me such joy to pay tribute to his incredible talent.
“I am honoured to be sharing the stage with some of the many artists Peter has inspired over the years and who share my great respect for this remarkable musician.”
