Stevie Nicks says if she hadn’t had an abortion in 1979 she is “pretty sure there wouldn’t have been a Fleetwood Mac.”
“There is just no way I could have had a child then, working as hard as we were working constantly,” the two-time Grammy winner, 72, told The Guardian in a long interview published Wednesday.
She was also using drugs at the time.
“I should have gone,” continued Nicks – whose real name is Stephanie. “And I knew that the music we were going to bring to the world was going to heal the hearts of so many people and make people so happy. ”
For her, music was what was important at the time.
“And I thought: you know what? It’s really important, ”Nicks said. There isn’t another group in the world that has two lead singers, two lead female writers. It was my world’s mission.

“If Christine [McVie] was in that room with me right now, she would tell you that we both made the decision not to have children and instead follow our musical muse around the world, ”Nicks said. “It’s not my job, it’s who I am.”

Despite the uncertainty surrounding the potential future of abortion rights, the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee said a decision she absolutely regrets was the first and only time she injected him with Botox in the face.
“Let me tell you, Botox only makes you feel like you’re in a satanic cult,” Nicks said. “I only had it once and it destroyed my face for four months. I would look at myself in the mirror and try to raise my eyebrow and say, “Oh, there you are, Satan’s angry daughter. Never again. ”
