Theirs is one of music's greatest love story of all time. A romantic partnership that played out in both the media and song after Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham met as crazy kids in high school. Buckingham was singing at a party and Nicks walked up and joined him. "We were at some get-together and he was there, sitting, playing his guitar and I walked up and brazenly burst into harmony with him. It was cool, and I said 'I'm Stevie Nicks' and he said 'I'm Lindsey Buckingham.' I never saw him again for two years, until he was in a band and he remembered that night and he called and asked me to join their band," Nicks told VH1's Behind the Music, recalling a simpler time before their relationship ended in him screaming, "Get that woman out of my life -- the schizophrenic b****!"
