When asked about Fleetwood Mac’s “legendary alcohol and drug intake” the singer told The Guardian, “My drug of choice was cocaine and champagne. I didn’t use any other drugs at all. It’s easy for me to say, but I think it made me perform better. ”

She laughed: “Maybe somebody could me different.”

She also talked about her bandmates when asked what her favorite period of time playing with Fleetwood Mac was.

“I would be silly not to say the Stevie [Nicks] and Lindsey [Buckingham] era, because that was pretty sensational. We had our fights here and there, but there was nothing like the music or the intensity onstage. ”
