Stevie Nicks has revealed that her Fleetwood Mac bandmate Mick Fleetwood sees Harry Styles as the "tall, lanky musical son he always wanted" and that the pair regularly stays in touch.

Styles has long named Fleetwood Mac as one of his favourite bands and they are an obvious influence in his debut self-titled solo album, and it seems he has been given their stamp of approval with Fleetwood "kind of adopting him."

"When we did the last Fleetwood Mac show, on my birthday, it was the nicest birthday I'd had in 10 years," Nicks told Event magazine.

"Harry Styles brought back a cake. Mick has kind of adopted him. There are just women in Mick's family and Harry is that tall, lanky musical son he always wanted, so they keep in touch."

Nicks recently joined Styles on stage at a concert in Los Angeles where they performed three songs together; his song Two Ghosts, Fleetwood Mac's Landslide and Nicks' collaboration with Don Henley, Leather and Lace.

Welcoming Nicks to the stage, Styles told the audience, "I'm pretty sure that this was going to be up there with one of the best nights of my life.

"If there was any doubt, I'm pretty sure I'd like to confirm, in my entire life, I never thought I'd be able to say this. Please welcome to the stage... Stevie Nicks."
