Girlfriend & Muse
Carol Ann Harris [05.26.?]
Carol Ann Harris was a record company secretary and aspiring model. She met Lindsey Buckingham in 1977 and became his live-in girlfriend until their 1984 breakup. She wrote Storms: My Life with Lindsey Buckingham and Fleetwood Mac, documenting the years she lived with him.
“Nine years before, a young girl had fallen in love with a man who turned out to be a prince in the kingdom of Fleetwood Mac. Overnight her life had been transformed. She’d lived in Lear jets, five-star hotels, and mansions. She had material wealth beyond her wildest dreams. But unlike the fairy tales of her childhood, it was a world where love could not triumph over darkness. And in the end that girl felt lost, lonely, and afraid. In real life, sometimes the girl doesn’t marry the prince. Sometimes she walks away from the castle and off into the sunset alone… finding true happiness in the real world beyond.”
