43. "Storms"

This gentle meditative ballad is Nicks' lament for her brief, messy affair with Fleetwood. "That relationship destroyed Mick's marriage," she later recalled. Unsurprisingly, "Storms" hit a sore spot for Buckingham. His girlfriend, Carol Ann Harris, recalled Nicks bringing it to the band, only to receive venomous criticism by Buckingham that led to a screaming battle.

"Added to the weight of the battle scars from Lindsey's and Stevie's past personal relationship, they made the atmosphere of the studio even uglier with each passing day."
