“Landslide” Fleetwood Mac: The Story Behind The Song
“Landslide” Fleetwood Mac: The Story Behind The Song
Nicks has said in interviews that the song was about her romance with Buckingham and their career struggles, as well as her relationship with her business-executive father.

Stevie Nicks wrote “Landslide” in about five minutes three months before she joined Fleetwood Mac.  No joke.  “I wrote ‘Landslide’ in 1973, when I was 27, and I did already feel old in a lot of ways. I’d been working as a waitress and a cleaning lady for years. I was tired.” – New York Times

Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks were recording as a duo using the name Buckingham-Nicks before they were asked to join Fleetwood Mac. They planned to include “Landslide” on what would have been their second album.  Stevie wrote “Landslide” and “Rhiannon,” while Buckingham was on the road with the Everly Brothers on backing guitar.
