Along with bandmate Mick Fleetwood and ex-guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, Nicks recently shared her own recreation of the video.

Posting a video in which she laces up roller skates while singing the 1977 hit, a bottle of cranberry juice also appeared in the background as an homage to Apodaca’s original clip.

Nicks tagged Dogg Face, Apodaca’s TikTok account, alongside the caption “Afternoon vibe. Lace ‘em up!”.

Sales of the song also increased 184 per cent in the first three days of the original video being posted, and streaming numbers saw a 242 per cent increase in first-time listeners of the song.







In a recent interview with NME, Nicks spoke about how she and Christine McVie were a “force of nature” when playing in Fleetwood Mac together.

“In the first two months I was in the band, Chris and I made a pact that we would never be in a room full of famous English or American guitar players and be treated like second class citizens. If we weren’t respected, we would say, ‘this party’s over’. We have stayed true to that our entire career.”
