Stevie Nicks

 

Stephanie Lynn “Stevie” Nicks (born May 26, 1948) is an American singer and songwriter from Phoenix, Arizona, best known for her work with Fleetwood Mac and a long successful solo career. Her ethereal visual style and symbolic lyrics have brought her critical acclaim and have proved influential to many female artists. She was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, as a member of Fleetwood Mac. Nicks has been nominated for seven Grammy Awards. Her classic song, “Silver Springs” was originally to be part of the best-selling Rumours album by Fleetwood Mac. Mick Fleetwood said it was too long and it was replaced by “Second Hand News.” Nicks was crushed. The song was the b-side of the “Go Your Own Way” 45 vinyl. It never appeared on any album until 1992 on the 4-CD Box Set Fleetwood Mac “The Chain.” In 1997 when the group reunited to do “The Dance” Reunion Tour, in 1997, she performed Silver Springs and earned a Grammy nomination the following year for “Best Pop Female Performance.” The song was a gift to her mother, Barbara Nicks - who calls it her “rainy day” song, and finally appeared on her 2007 CD. Warner Bros. wouldn’t let her put it on “TimeSpace” her 1991, first “Best Of” collection, which further deepened the rift between her solo career and her career with Fleetwood Mac. Ever the diplomat, she’s one of the few women in rock to have a successful solo career with a band (she’s been performing and recording with Fleetwood Mac for 35 years - and a successful solo career with highs and lows, since 1981. Her career took off again at age 50, with the release of of her 3-CD Box Set “The Enchanted Works of Stevie Nicks” in 1998 - and she’s been going strong ever since.

Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac in 1975 along with her romantic partner Lindsey Buckingham. Fleetwood Mac's second album after the incorporation of Nicks and Buckingham, Rumours, released in 1977, was the best-selling album of the year of its release and, to date, made sales of 40 million copies worldwide, which makes it the sixth biggest selling studio album of all time. The album remained at No. 1 on the American albums chart for 31 weeks and reached the top spot in various countries worldwide. The album won Album of the Year in 1978 and produced four U.S. Top 10 singles, with Nicks' "Dreams" being the band's first and only U.S. number one hit.

Nicks began her solo career in 1981 with the album Bella Donna, which reached Platinum status less than three months after its release, and has since been certified quadruple-platinum. She has released a total of eight solo studio albums to date, with her most recent titled 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault, released in October 2014. Nicks is known for her distinctive voice, mystical visual style, and symbolic lyrics.
