Fleetwood Mac is no more.

In an interview with MOJO, Stevie Nicks opened up about the future of the band and life without Christine McVie, who died at 79 of a stroke and metastasized cancer.

The "Landslide" singer, 76, recalled discovering her late friend and bandmate's death.

“It was all stunningly strange, because there wasn’t any lead up to it,” says Nicks told the publication. “We got a call, and I was going to rent a plane and go see her, but her family said, ‘Don’t come, because she may not be here tomorrow.’ And the next day, she passed away."

She continued: “I wanted to go there and sit on her bed and sing to her — which definitely would have made her pass away faster. But I needed to be with her. And I didn’t get to do that. So that was very hard for me. I didn’t get to say goodbye."

Nicks also addressed the status of Fleetwood Mac, which she believes doesn't have a future without McVie.

“Without Christine, no can do,” she said. "There is no chance of putting Fleetwood Mac back together in any way. Without her, it just couldn’t work."

Nicks also addressed the idea of working with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham — whom she's had a long-fractured relationship with and was fired from the band in 2018 — again for a final tour.

“Even if I thought I could work with Lindsey again, he’s had some health problems,” the "Silver Springs" performer, pointing to to his open heart surgery in 2019. “It’s not for me to say, but I’m not sure if Lindsey could do the kind of touring that Fleetwood Mac does, where you go out for a year and half. It’s so demanding.”
