Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Stevie Nicks has thanked pop superstar Taylor Swift for her Midnights song “You’re on Your Own, Kid,” which according to the Fleetwood Mac singer helped her grieve the loss of her bandmate and friend Christine McVie.
“Thank you to Taylor Swift for doing a favor for me, and that is, writing a song called ‘You’re on Your Own, Kid,’” Nicks said on May 22nd during the Atlanta stop of her headlining tour. “That is the sadness of how I feel.”
Nicks also shared how close she was with McVie, saying, “Even on the other side of the world, [Christine and I] didn’t have to talk on the phone, we really weren’t phone buddies. Then we would go back to Fleetwood Mac, and we would walk in and it would be like, ‘Little sister, how are you?’ It was like never a minute had passed, never an argument in our entire 47 years.”
In the conclusion of her speech, Nicks quoted the chorus of “You’re on Your Own, Kid,” saying, “The two of us were on our own, kids. We always were. And now, I’m having to learn to be on my own, kid, by myself. So, you help me to do that. Thank you.”
McVie died on November 30, 2022 from a stroke.
