Fleetwood Mac has been notorious for the drama among its members over the past several decades, and according to drummer Mick Fleetwood, the band needs that drama to keep going.
In a recent interview with The Sunday Times (via 411mania.com), Fleetwood admitted that, even now, he and his bandmates are “totally driven by drama.”
The rocker then notes, “I think we're calming down a bit, but we're terrified of not feeling. So if nothing's happening you'll worry yourself into creating a drama - just so you've got something to react to. It's sort of an addiction, really.”
And though some have speculated that Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks have not been getting along on their current reunion tour and Fleetwood addresses those “Rumours” in his interview with The Sunday Times.
“I understand why people would think that [we don’t like each other], after everything we've said and done. But the reality is, we love each other. We just push the wrong buttons,” Fleetwood explains to the UK publication.
Fleetwood Mac has a series of tour dates coming up next month, beginning with a two-date stint at the O2 Dublin in Dublin, Ireland on September 20 and 21.
