Stevie Nicks Reveals Where Mick Fleetwood Wants To Die

Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac recently shared a statement on Twitter about the wildfires that broke out in Maui, Hawaii.

The fires have affected and destroyed over 271 structures in Lahaina, killed at least 36 people, and erased several cultural sites. Officials believe that the ongoing wildfires could become Hawaii’s deadliest disaster in history, with the highest number of casualties in over a century.

Nicks shared a lengthy statement about the fires and recalled his bandmate Mick Fleetwood’s wish to live and die in Maui before the fires. The statement read:

“There was no way to know that this amazing town that had survived so much for so long would burn down and disappear into the history books, leaving so much sadness, destruction, and death behind it in its wake. This island, in so many ways, defines Fleetwood Mac and me and our families.

Mick and I came here in 1978, went up to Kula to look at a huge, beautiful house and stood in front of it listening to the gentle magical wind. He said to me ~ ‘I will live and die on this island.’ I knew he was telling the truth. John also lived here in Maui for a long time – Christine never lived here but visited many times.”

It continued:

“The Lahaina that we knew~ The Lahaina that in many ways connect Fleetwood Mac and our music to the world, is gone. But my memories of everything that happened to me there is clear as a bell. I will still walk those streets ~ still watch the sunset from the many cool restaurants that we drove in to see every night.

I will see Mr. Fleetwood’s beautiful new restaurant rebuilt and sparkling in the middle of Front Street – I will remember meeting Sharon Celani, my sweet singer, at the Blue Max in 1979. In my dreams I will see Lahaina from the ocean ~ beckoning all those who are on boats back to the marina where the Pioneer Inn waits, and the Banyan Tree dances in the wind.”

Mick Fleetwood opened his restaurant in Lahaina called Fleetwood’s On Front St. in 2012, recently destroyed in the fires. The drummer shared a picture of the restaurant’s sign on Instagram on Wednesday, noting that Maui and Lahaina have been his ‘home for several decades.’
