Stevie Nicks, of Fleetwood Mac, and Solo

Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac

Stevie Nicks is probably the best known member of the world famous band, Fleetwood Mac. Of course she has a solo career all her own but like several members of the band, has continued to perform and make recordings with them. So her story and the Fleetwood Mac story are very intertwined.

Fleetwood Mac are a unique band, with a beautiful sound, and a unique way of creating that famous sound. All of its musicians are multi talented : they all sing, write songs, and play instruments. To me, the band is much more than the sum of its parts, but even so, Stevie stands out! Yes, she is beautiful, and yes, she has a very strong and unusual sounding voice, but it’s her lyrics and her spirit that help her soar in the musical realm… and which set her apart from all other rock singers. Her songs are poetry set to music!

Stevie has a way with words in interviews too, so I have included some of her quotes.

The Landslide Phenomenon
Stevie Nicks’ Most Famous Song

It was 1977, in many ways a very pivotal year for me. Elvis died. My sister Penny died. My daughter was born. And I heard Landslide for the first time.

The death of my sister caused a huge personal spiritual crisis for me. I just could not believe that God would take the sweetest person on Earth from me and my family. So Landslide was a song that I associated with this crisis. The Landslide brought me down, and it took a long while for me to climb back up.

But Landslide also marked the beginning of my love affair with Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac. One of my 4 favorite bands of all time. (The others are the Beatles, the Moody Blues, and Coldplay.)

Stevie Nicks~Wild Heart
Stevie Nicks Solo Hits

Stevie Nicks Music~Wild Heart

Of course I own this album in several versions, casette, vinyl, CD! But then, I own every single album she ever made, including the obscure Buckingham-Nicks which is a bit of a collector’s item now. Wild Heart is an apt description of her I think.  Features my favorite song of hers ever: Stand Back. Also Enchanted, Night Bird, and If Anyone Falls, among other gems.




“I was not going to be a stupid girl singer.
I was going to be way more than that.”
~Stevie Nicks

Features a favorite Stevie Nicks Song of Mine: Bella Donna

“Oh my goodness, look at that beautiful dress!” is what I thought when I saw this album cover. It has many hits. Yes, I own this one too. Many hits off this brilliant album. Edge of Seventeen, Leather and Lace, Bella Donna, and my favorite duet of hers: Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.



Stevie Nicks Fleetwood Mac
Or Simply, The Mac

By the time Fleetwood Mac did Tusk, they were a worldwide phenomenon, and were often called by music aficionados simply, The Mac. By this time they were a music machine, with song after song on the top of the music charts. The video of them marching with the UCLA band was a tribal event for Mac lovers.

Even though I have all the other albums, I have this one too! Die hard Stevie fan, what can I say? All the Stevie Nicks solo hits you would expect!

And look at that cape! Stevie is well known for her Gypsy style of clothing and her Art Nouveau designs on the covers of her albums. I’v featured some Art Nouveau posters on this page that remind me of her style.

Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac Came to Memphis in 1983
Stevie Nicks Fleetwood Mac

In 1983 I was living in Bartlett Tennessee, which is a little city outside of Memphis, a suburb really. I remember hearing on the radio that Fleetwood Mac was coming to town, and I could not wait to call Ticketmaster to get our tickets. I got them on the 14th row. A little to the left side so that meant I was on the side Stevie sang from. As it turned out the way the seats are placed in the stadium means that the 14th row is just about stage level, so the singers are right in front of you! I could not believe my good luck and very soon after the band came out and started singing Landslide. I watched Stevie’s every move of course, and in one instant where she was scanning the crowd, we locked eyes. For a few seconds time stood still for me, and then she winked! Talk about excited! I don’t think I came down off my cloud for a week!

Stevie Nicks~Rock a Little on CD and vinyl both.
Umm, yeah, I have this one too! It’s probably the least like any of her other albums, as she was in a very dark time in her life. Whacked out on drugs and alcohol and not doing well personally, she is very raw on this album. But I still love it, as her lyrics are truthful and poignant, and her voice is dark and mysterious as always.  It has rave reviews, and not so rave reviews from people who want the same thing over and over from their musical icons. I prefer truth and variety, so I love it!



Stand Back
My Favorite Song by Stevie Nicks

The soundtrack of my life story would have huge amounts of time dedicated to Stevie Nicks. My journey to autonomy runs straight along the course of her journey in songs. Stand Back represents the time when I was awakening to the notion that I was more than a wife and mother, and deserved more space in a marriage that wasn’t working. The song just seemed to give me a power to move to a different place inside.

Stevie Nicks~Live at Red Rocks

Red Rocks is an awesome venue in the Rocky Mountains near Denver. The rocks make all the sounds echo…for a truly rocking experience! All her solo hits and old Stevie Nicks Fleetwood Mac songs too with reverb from the Red Rocks. Beautiful! Peter Frampton and Mick Fleetwood joined her on stage for a few renditions of their old hit songs.

Stevie Nicks, Lyricist Extraordinaire
And Genius Musician Too!

Stevie has a very unique way with words and most of her songs can be written out and read like poems. She has one of the most unique musical signatures in all of rock. No other single artist moves around scales, time structures, song structures, and harmonies all in a single song the way she does. Many of the songs really should not work, but of course, they work like magic.

“I preferred not to be laden down
with a big instrument. If you’re
behind a guitar, you get used to
being behind a guitar, and you
don’t really perform because you
can’t. I wanted to be able to just
hold on to the mike and sing.”

Stevie Nicks Clothing and Her Fashion Influence
Stevie Nicks Clothing

Stevie Nicks is not only an accomplished musician, she has always been a strong fashion influence for thousands of females. Her stage outfits are kind of Bohemian meets Welsh Witch meets Hippie meets Gypsy and are a huge part of a Stevie Nicks concert performance. I love her way of dressing and it is the way I have always dressed myself. I agree with her that mystery is better than overt sexuality. At any rate, she always looks beautiful!

“I think they all went too far.
Their jeans got too low, their tops got too see-through.
Personally, I think that sexy is keeping yourself mysterious.
I’m really an old-fashioned girl,
and I think I’m totally sexy.”
~Stevie Nicks
