Mac’s John McVie to have cancer surgery
Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie will undergo cancer surgery next week, Stevie Nicks has revealed.
The band were forced to cancel part of their world tour last year when the 68-year-old was diagnosed and began treatment.
But he was back on stage with Mac at the end of December for two New Year shows, and performed again last night.
And vocalist Nicks is confident he’ll soon be back to full health. She tells US Weekly: “He’s good. He’s got his treatment then he has surgery next week.
“He’s going to be fine – I’m not the least bit worried about John. He’s very, very strong and a man of very few words. He’s not a person to mess with.”
Meanwhile, Nicks has explained her reasons for constantly refusing invitations to write her autobiography. She says: “I wouldn’t write a book unless I could really tell the truth and all the people in it are represented right. “Did I go out with Don Henley? Yes, but I won’t change his name to Bob. If Don is in it, Don is going to be Don.
“I need to be old enough, and so do they, that nobody’s going to care. Don’s wife is not going to care; Lindsay Buckingham’s wife is not going to care; and all the men that I went out with in my life, their wives are not going to care.
“I want to tell the real story of what happened with all these people, why they didn’t work out, and why I’m not married to one of them.”
But if Nicks ever does start the project, she insists: “I would never write a book about the bad parts. I would gently touch on them. I would mostly revel in the fantastic parts, of which there were so many.”
