She is amazing. I saw Fleetwood Mac waaaaay back in the 70's What a beauty she was then! Great artist. Thanks for the memories....

I like the picture you chose to go with the post! She has some cool pants going on there....

Geoff said...

How cool! Several years ago when I was still working in radio in Idaho (yes Idaho), I mc'd a concert in a gambling town across the border called Jackpot Nevada for Ms Nicks. She was so gracious with everyone during the meet and greet. She's a class act.

Trust all goes well for you.

Thanks for occasional comments. So pleased that the images I post are appreciated. So few people leave comments that it's difficult to know. You and Ray are two of the most consistent.


Thanks again :-)

Stevie Nicks is a Goddess. Never will be a voice quite like hers. I, too, love Landslide. It's been remade by so many & will always be substandard compared with hers.

Daij said...

I love her too. Never heard of Landsline. I 'll have to youtube it.

omg, I need to find my flowie skirt.

Haha, the word verification is hippi although mispelled. So ironic.

Brahm said...

LOOOOOOVE her!

Saw her solo maybe ten years ago, and then saw her with the Fleetwod Mac "Unleashed" tour last June... fantastic live performer, love her spirit and talent and grace!

Jeesh! You get to see all the great bitches.

(Love Stevie's voice - a rarity, indeed.)

Elana Johnson said...

I love Landslide -- and Stevie Nicks! My husband would be so jealous, he wants to go to her concert so bad!

Bobbie's Babbles said...

I almost named by daughter Stevie, after Stevie Nicks. I'm a Barbara called Bobbie. I wanted my daughter to have a "girls" name with a boy's nickname. I thought I would name her Stephanie [which I think is Stevie's name], but call her Stevie. My hubby didn't go for that so we ended up calling her Erica with Ricki as her nickname. Ask me how many times I've called her Ricki? Zero. It never took. I do love Stevie [the person and the name]

Sharon McPherson: AUTHOR said...

You are so lucky! Of course, I'm behind the times and still listening to Fleetwood Mac ... Will check out her solo stuff.

Adam M said...

I've seen Fleetwood Mac Twice and seeing Landslide live is incredible!

Performingsys said...

For any who have missed her solo career, she is a million + times better in her songs and performances without FM. She is the one and only Queen of Rock and song!

Blobby said...

I'm sure I'll be the dissenter here.

I've seen Fleetwood Mac and/or Nicks regularly since 1977. Yes, I'm old.

I long for the pre 1981 days of her voice per 3 packs per day (her assertion, not mine) habit.

After 'Rock a Little' she had her moments, but I'm pretty sure she can no longer get her voice higher than Lindsey Buckingham.

Their last tour was miles better than the 'Say You Will' one of 2003.

But I hate that they can't play without three backing vocalists anymore. It never used to be that way and my assertion is, if they can't carry it without a crew 3x the size of the actual band, then maybe they shouldn't anymore.
