The High School Friendship That Started It All
One of the most famous songwriting couples in the world, Stevie Nicks’ relationship with Lindsey Buckingham was born out of playing music. They were in high school together, meeting when Nicks saw Buckingham playing “California Dreamin'” during an after-school Christian youth-club meeting and she jumped in to harmonize.
Soon, their band “Fritz” was opening for psychedelic rock icons such as Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, both of whom Nicks credits as major influences on her style. Nicks and Buckingham became romantically involved after Fritz broke up.
