Every year on September 11th, Stevie always posts to remember our American tragedy on this day. It hit close to home for her since she was in New York on the Trouble in Shangri- La Tour.
She as always shared beautiful words from the heart about today…

From My Journal Auckland New Zealand; 9-11-19 From my song Illume 9-11-2001 I’m alone now, with my thoughts Of how we could make it~ Of how we could – get out… What we’d been through~ And all of the trauma. The smell of Nag Champra~ Shadow of a stranger. I will not take you for granted. I wouldn’t trade you for jade~ Or for diamonds. I just need you to be there~ Just remember when I am haunted- That I was just so scared… I am alone now~ What I saw on this journey… I saw history go down~ I cannot pretend~ That the heartache falls away. It’s just like a river; It’s never ending; I cannot pretend; That the heartache Fades away… I always say on this day~ “I do not have to be reminded of what 9-11 was to me. I am not sorry that I was there. I am glad that I could share in that horrific tragedy with the people of New York. I am glad that it brought me to my knees and left me broken hearted. I am glad that I will never be the same since that day. I am glad that I appreciate people that I love more- since that day. I am glad that 18 years later, every year on this day, I go into myself and see the world. This day, here in New Zealand, I watched the documentary called Operation Yellow Ribbon, about the air traffic controllers who safely guided 255 planes coming into Canada from the rest of the world, because no plane could enter our country on that day… In Four hours~ (I wasn’t even aware that that happened. Watch it) And I am glad that the powers that be let me fly on my small jet- flanked on both sides by F-16 jets into Washington DC five days later. As I drove away from New York on a bus to Atlantic City 3 days after the attack~ I knew I would stay on the road and finish my tour. It was frightening, but I did it. God Bless all the people who were lost on that day, and all the people who were left behind. And as my sweet “World War Two” mom said ~ “Never forget it, Stevie – Don’t ever forget” Love, Stevie Nicks Photo: CBS News
As stated in the previous post, for the 1 year anniversary of this site i’m adding some goodies to the site as a thank you for the followers. I decided for the first “present” to upload Stevie’s 1999 interview with photographer, Norman Seeff.
From IMDB: “Recorded in 1999, Norman Seeff talks with Stevie Nicks, solo artist, and member of Fleetwood Mac, about her stage fright that overwhelms her, but how it can also transform her performances.”
Hard to believe it has been one year since I decided to put together this website along with its corresponding social media accounts! When I created this within the vastness of Stevie’s fandom I wasn’t sure where it would go. As a thank you to all the amazing followers who have gone on this journey some goodies will be posted via all aspects of this site/page. Our first one is our beautiful new layout created by Cherry Gem Designs. The art features our favorite Rock & Roll ballerina from the Rumours photoshoot with splashes of red & black. In addition weekly updates will be made to the site in celebration, so stay tuned!
On August 9th, Fleetwood Mac started the Australian leg of the An Evening With Fleetwood Mac Tour with a show in Perth followed by shows in Sydney & Brisbane. The tour in Australia will continue on into September before heading back to the United States at the end of October. The gallery has been updated with photos from the first 6 concerts, and then various concerts/events Stevie has done over the years.

On this day (8/11) in 2011, Stevie performed during the American Thunder Music Festival in Sturgis, South Dakota. The concert was a benefit for the Bob Woodruff Foundation which provides help for veterans and their families. Her set was short, only 4 songs but what happened during Soldier’s Angel has gone down in history for fans. Stevie soldiered on to perform the song through a howling windstorm as well as tornado warnings.

On July 11, 2012 was interviewed on CBS This Morning by Gayle King & Erica Hill. She discusses a variety of topics from past relationship with Lindsey Buckingham, creativity and more.
The gallery has been updated with a few stills from the interview and you can also view the full interview in the Video Vault. Special thank you to Marie who helped me track it down online!
“Never, (except when her baby was born) have I been so proud and so happy for her. Tomorrow I leave for LA to rest for the Australian tour~ and tomorrow~ she begins a new chapter as a shooting star~ a new little star on Broadway~ someone who can bring some joy into this crazy world…
I want you all to see it if you can. It will change your state of mind, heal your heart~ and bring Carole’s beautiful, beautiful songs back to life.
So, good luck my sweet girl~ I can leave New York now knowing that ~ all is well~”
On June 27th, Stevie attended the premiere of Beautiful on Broadway starring her friend of 15 years, singer Vanessa Carlton. In Stevie’s above journal entry she points out that due to her being in Europe for the Fleetwood Mac Tour, she was told not to come. However she surprised Vanessa, by entering her dressing room after the play had ended.
On Wednesday, 6/19 Stevie made an appearance at the V & A Summer Party in participation with Dior. She attended the event with long time friend and music producer, Jimmy Iovine and his wife Liberty Ross.
Fleetwood Mac finished up their last concert of the European tour with their 2nd concert at Wembley Stadium last night in London. Unlike the North American coverage of the tour the reviews are far more scathing and photos less common. The gallery has been updated with fan provided photos from the shows in Berlin, Belgium, Dublin, & London.
