Mick Fleetwood says that although the though has been in the back of their minds, Fleetwood Mac will never replace Christine McVie. Although McVie's departure from the band shortly after their 1997 reunion tour left an open position in the band's lineup, and despite a tentative thought about Sheryl Crow possibly filling the hole left by McVie, the band has decide to carry on as a four-piece with numerous sidemen and women.

Fleetwood says that from here on out, Fleetwood Mac will always -- and only -- be himself, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks.
