2018 has certainly been a busy year for Stevie and not just her 2nd induction into the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame this month. Kicking off the beginning of the year was the re-release of the remastered version of the 1975 Fleetwood Mac album which was Stevie’s first with the band. The CD was released in multiple formats including 3CD/DVD/LP, 2 CD expanded version,as well as being available on digital streaming such as Amazon. The end of January brought us one of Stevie’s most poignant moments of the year when she attended the MusiCares event where Fleetwood Mac was honored. She gave a speech about the fans, her age, and ended with a tribute to her dear friend Tom Petty who unexpectedly passed away last year. She stated that his death had just about broken her heart and that she would never get over it.

The brand new lineup of Fleetwood Mac featuring Neil Finn and Mike Campbell appeared on CBS This Morning in April to discuss the new tour. The departure of former guitarist Lindsey Buckingham was also discussed as well as how Finn and Campbell were introduced to the band.

On June 19th, country star Leann Rimes announced on her Twitter that her final single from her Re-Imagined EP was a duet with Stevie of the song Borrowed. Stevie’s reasong for the collaboration and reaction was included in a Rolling Stone article:”Nicks, who refers to the “How Do I Live” singer as “the best I have ever sung with,” notes that she chose to record “Borrowed” for Re-Imagined after Rimes sang it on The Tonight Show in 2013. “I stopped in my tracks and sat down on the floor and started to cry,” the rock icon tells Rolling Stone. “I understood what she was singing about. I understood that the pain was real… and I understood that it had happened to me. When the song ended, I called my assistant to tell her that one day, I would sing this song with LeAnn. It was our destiny.”

In August, Stevie who has had a long time break from Instagram returned with a brand new account including a behind the scenes selfie from her episode of American Horror Story: Apocalypse You can follow her official Instagram account here.In September Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ ‘An American Treasure’ was released to commemorate the anniversary of Tom’s passing. Stevie was featured on the demo version of a song entitled The Apartment Song. The Mac made their debut performing together for the first time in two different events the first being on the Ellen Show singing Gypsy & The Chain. At the end of the month the band made an untelevised performance of the bands hit at the iHeart Radio Music Festival.

October saw our White Witch returning to American Horror Story for the 8th season for Episode 5, Boy Wonder. Her return also marked the return of Misty Day a swamp witch who was a Stevie super fan who’s death, Supreme Cordelia took hard. She serenaded the group of witches and warlocks with a piano version of Gypsy being accompanied by BD Wong.

The end of the year was capped by the beginning of the first leg of the An Evening With Fleetwood Mac tour which has received rave reviews and now includes a European tour. The announcement of Stevie being inducted to the Rock Hall of Fame for the 2nd time brings this year to an end. We cannot wait to see what 2019 brings for Stevie including the March induction ceremony in New York for the Rock Hall!!

December 22, 2018   Comments Off on Flashback: Stevie Nicks Launches Solo Career With ‘Edge of Seventeen’ Press Library, Site Update

Earlier this month, Stevie Nicks learned that she was going to become the first woman ever inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on two occasions. “My biggest hope is that I have opened the door due to the fact that there’s 22 men who have gone in twice and zero women,” she told Rolling Stone. “I think that’s really a little off balance. That’s what I’m hoping, that what’s happened here to me will give all the little rock and roll stars that are just waiting out there a little hope that they can also do what I do.”

Nicks the solo star was born in 1981 when Jimmy Iovine took time away from working with Tom Petty to help her craft her debut album. “It was Jimmy that said, ‘I will produce your record and we’ll make you a Tom Petty record, expect it’ll be a girl Tom Petty record,’” Nicks recalled. “I found that very exciting and I was jumping off the walls. That’s how it all started.”

Many Stevie fans remember the 2003 Jack Black movie, School of Rock about the slacking musician who finds himself teaching at an upscale elementary prep school. The movie used music from various artists, including Stevie herself who the uptight principal Roz Mullins was a closet fans. A well known scene included Jack Black and Joan Cusack drinking and singing to Edge of Seventeen to convince her to allow the kids to go on a field trip. In 2015, Stevie attended the Broadway premiere of the School of Rock play along with Mick Fleetwood and his children. She later on would perform Rhiannon on stage with the young cast in 2016.

Article From Ultimate Classic Rock

Let’s get one thing straight: Stevie Nicks is, of course, already in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with Fleetwood Mac, since that band was inducted in 1998. However, Nicks has also carved out an impressive parallel solo career that certainly justifies her first-ever Rock Hall nomination as an individual.
In fact, the Arizona native is inarguably the most successful member of Fleetwood Mac outside of the band, a status cemented from her very first solo endeavors. In the late ’70s, a trio of singles on which she sang hit the Top 10: Kenny Loggins’ “Whenever I Call You ‘Friend,'” John Stewart’s “Gold” and Walter Egan’s “Magnet and Steel.”

That set the stage for her blockbuster debut album, 1981’s Bella Donna, which topped the Billboard album charts and spawned the indelible hits “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” (with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), “Leather & Lace” (a Don Henley duet) and “Edge of Seventeen.” Two years later, The Wild Heart delivered two more hits: the empowerment anthem “Stand Back” and “If Anyone Falls.” Oh, and in between these smashes, Nicks also landed a major hit from Fleetwood Mac’s 1982 album, Mirage: the meditative, melancholy twirl “Gypsy.”

In the decades since, Nicks has continued to follow her muse in a variety of directions: songwriting, touring, acting and mentoring. What’s become clear over the years is that her solo career has evolved into something completely different than her work with Fleetwood Mac.

Here are 5 reasons Stevie Nicks deserves to be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

November 15, 2018   Comments Off on Rock Hall nominee Stevie Nicks empowers through her songs Press Library, Site Update

Article from Cleveland.Com
The story goes, on a hot summer day in 1970, Janis Joplin shouted off the opening band when its set ran long. Stevie Nicks, that band’s diminutive singer would later comment,”Being yelled off the stage by Janis Joplin was one of the greatest honors of my life.”

Both women would go on to beat the rock odds and be inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, just 14 percent women. When this year’s inductees are announced in December, Nicks could become the first woman to be inducted into the Hall twice — once as a member of Fleetwood Mac, and once as a solo artist.

Joplin and Nicks’ stage personas, so indelible, were built on opposite characteristics. On stage Joplin swaggered, overpowered. Along with her aversion to sharing a stage, she rarely shared a microphone. Her string of backup bands was an interchangeable not-as-important. It was always Janis Joplin and a forgettable else.

Nicks found fame in the five-member Fleetwood Mac, whose soap opera backstories became the stuff of rock legend. On stage, she twirled and harmonized. Her songs about gypsies and witches shared space with songs by her guitar-picking ex-lover Lindsey Buckingham, who was also her songs’ arranger. At concerts she became ethereal, the feminine yin to his masculine yang.

Critics responded in an odd sort of way. Nicks penned “Dreams,” the band’s only No. 1 hit, as well as half of Rolling Stone’s selections for Fleetwood Mac’s top 14 songs and seven of the ten fan-favorites in a Rolling Stone poll. Yet Nicks was routinely critically dismissed as a “ditz,” a “bimbo,” and a “mooncalf” — while Buckingham was hailed as the band’s creative genius.

Which begs the question: Why was it either/or?

Commenting on critics’ tendencies to overvalue Buckingham while dismissing Nicks, writer Amy Mulvihill suggested, “I wish these people would actually listen to her songs.”

Early Nicks’ lyrics gave a twist to a familiar subject — the demise of a relationship. In Nicks’ songs there is no crying at a party, offering another piece of her heart, or worrying that you’ll love her tomorrow.

Instead, she offers new options, from the flippant, “Well who am I to bring you down?” to the caustic, “Rulers make bad lovers, better put your kingdom up for sale.”

She ruminates, but it never leads to despair. It’s just a learning moment, an important step on the road to something else. It was an empowering shift of perspective, done with the lift of a shawl by a perfectly manicured hand.

“Stevie took traditionally feminine characteristics, unabashedly embraced them, and then made them the source of power,” songwriter and singer Vanessa Carlton commented.

It’s probably no surprise her life mirrors the lyrics. Still performing at 70, her picked-apart love affairs, critic dismissals, addictions and weight ups and downs, never stopped a career that now spans almost 50 years, and includes eight Grammy nominations for her solo work, 28 years of a reverential fan-fest called, “The Night of a Thousand Stevies,” and a continued relevance best expressed in a 2014 millennial TED talk that advised a new generation of fans to “just be Stevie.”

There is a temptation to call it ironic — the fact that this diminutive woman draped in shawls and lace could end up so triumphant — but ironic would embarrassingly miss the point.

Just listen to her songs.

November 15, 2018   Comments Off on Don’t Stop: 50 years on, Fleetwood Mac are still rising from the ashes of their own self-destruction Press Library, Site Update

Article Found at The Independent
Affairs, breakups, terrifying brawls between lovers, damage to instruments (and skulls), divorce, drug abuse, alcoholism, rows about money, musical differences, and lots and lots and lots of hit records: Fleetwood Mac might have sounded mellow at times, but off stage they were anything but.

“We’re a group of people who, you could make the argument, don’t belong in the same band together,” Lindsey Buckingham once said of his fractious group. “It’s the synergy of that that makes it work.”

Whether they’ve triumphed because of their famously volatile relationship, or in spite of it, Fleetwood Mac have risen from the ashes of their own self-destruction more times than seemed possible. In the past 50 years, they have found a home for themselves teetering on the brink of implosion – unwilling, or perhaps unable, to let each other go. Their new anniversary album, 50 Years – Don’t Stop, could hardly be more aptly titled.

Not that the current members haven’t tried to stop. Stevie Nicks left the band in 1990 over a dispute with Mick Fleetwood, but rejoined a few years later. Guitarist Lindsey Buckingham quit in 1987, just before the band’s world tour, to “get on with the next phase of my creative growth” – only to spearhead a reunion a decade later. When Christine McVie packed the whole thing in 1998, she even went as far as moving to a sleepy village in Kent. “There’s no more chance of [McVie returning],” said Stevie Nicks in 2012, “than an asteroid hitting the earth.” A little over a year later, McVie was back in the band, no asteroid in sight.

In the early days, of course, some members left for good. When Fleetwood Mac first formed in London in 1968, so constantly changing was its line-up that “List of Fleetwood Mac members” (there have been 18 of them) is its own Wikipedia page.

After suffering a drug-induced mental decline, founding member Peter Green – who led the band through their early blues-rock era (songs such as “Somebody’s Gonna Get Their Head Kicked in Tonight” could hardly be more different to the pop-rock sound the band would later develop) – left in 1970.

Guitarist Danny Kirwan was fired in 1972 after smashing both his guitar, and his head, on a dressing room wall before a gig. Singer and guitarist Bob Welch, who had become increasingly estranged from John and Christine McVie and whose marriage was failing, resigned in 1974, and was replaced by LA singer-songwriter duo Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham. And that’s when the turbulence really started.
