She could still have assumed the godmotherly rock survivor with the scars to prove it persona that she took on in 1997. Maybe have a Stevie Nicks comeback special on MTV and Clear Channel. I doubt it would have had the same impact, but she could have been brought back to viability without Fleetwood Mac.
I never said she wasn't capable of some kind of comeback on her own.

My point was, the immediate bounce that she got from the Dance Tour most likely wouldn't of happened in the same way if she had to do it on her own.

And quite frankly, she had already been trying to quit smoking, drop some weight, get a makeover on and off between 1990-1994...and the comeback still hadn't happened.

Just an observation.
