Belle Fleur (Debra Lusk Johnson)

It’s like, ‘We’re in the money…’ It’s so great! But we would get picked up in a long, big, black, shiny limousine. And we also got a first-class ticket for a couple of places we flew off to do some press. This just killed me because I was so used to that Toyota and I was so used to living in that other world. Then all of a sudden, it was just like…it was, it was frightening almost. So anyway, what happened was, with the limousine, it started to become a thing that came to take me away — beautiful and grand and expensive and famous — but it was pulling up to my house to take me away. And if I had a boyfriend, it was goodbye and the relationship was basically over. So that started to stand for that. And as much as loved the limousine, it was kind of a sad thing. So I wrote this song about it because I thought, well, we should put… There’s the good and there’s the bad —  it’s about being a famous rock star. So this song was written about that picture in my head of walking away from my house and waving goodbye to somebody and knowing that was probably it, until I found something else (lauging), which was never very long, so anyway. So anyway, the song’s called ‘Belle Fleur.’

New Orleans – partial (Christina Martisek)

You need to write this stuff down. I’m like a reporter, I chronicle stuff, I’m an archivist — I think that’s the right word. And I don’t want people to forget, and I think people do forget. If you don’t write stuff down, it’s gonna just…time’s gonna just make it fade. So I continue to watch television every day for a couple of days. I wrote this poem, and I had to be very careful with what I was writing because you can’t, you know, you can’t… It was gonna be bad. We knew it, I knew it, we all knew it. So I had to write something that was somehow hopeful and somehow uplifting because otherwise in 10 years all the people from New Orleans will say, ‘Well gee, thanks for writing that horrible, horrific dirge about our city.’ And I’m like…so you’re going like, ‘I don’t want that so I have to figure out a way to look at this from another way.’ So I thought, OK if I was…if I had a magic wand, what would I do? I would make sure that most of the dogs that were in the water were saved; most of the people were pulled out of the water; most of the houses were rebuilt; the government slowly came in and did something…slowly; and people survived and they rebuilt their city; and they made this amazing, new, beautiful city — this quirky, unique, weird city. They brought it back because that’s what they’re gonna do, and that’s what I’m gonna write about. They say, you know, if you paint the picture, it will come true. Or if you build a field, they will come. So that’s what I tried to do with it. So anyway, we’re gonna play it for you now and it’s called new Orleans.

Twilight (A Vampire’s Dream)

Thank you. That song is probably my favorite song that I’ve written in a very long time. Just to make it short because this story is just way to long. It’s about vampires, which we know don’t really exist, but they do in the Twilight saga. And so I fell in love with that relationship between Bella and Edward, and it just took my heart, and I went straight to the piano, and I wrote this song in Australia, and I said, ‘Well, I guess I’m gonna have to make a record now because I can’t just put this one song out. So I went into the studio and made In Your Dreams and kind of walked back into the recording part of this business. The Internet had just driven me away because it was so…you know, you can’t sell anything. Who cares! I’m financially stable — it wasn’t that. It’s just the principle of it. But now, I don’t care because I can just go and make records and put ’em out and have a great time and then go back into the… It’s fine. So anyway, that is the story of Bella and Edward. So thank you and otherwise, we’re just leave them up in the twilight.

Edge of Seventeen (Chris Hemingway)

Landslide (Erin McCarty)

Landslide (Kelli O’Neil)

… I had my Goya with me — that’s a little classical guitar. And they said, ‘Sure!’ So I spent a couple of hours there by myself, and I wrote this little song. Once again, I was just a little girl, and this little song took us all to the top. So sitting cross-legged in fringe jeans and thinking, well, it’s a cool song, I love it, and I’m happy, and off I go to the rest of my life. Never did I have any idea that this song would do what it did, besides like being the favorite Super Bowl commercial. It’s like so many things, you know? And so I just want you to keep that in your heart and remember that — the little, tiny song, little tiny dream, ah…poof! So this is ‘Landslide,’ that little song.

Stevie Nicks can still deliver lots of surprises (Erin McCarty, News Radio 710 KEEL)

At age 68, Stevie Nicks still commands the stage and can deliver quite a show. It’s very obvious from the beginning of her show at the Century Link Center, she was going to do her own kind of show, not the typical Stevie Nicks show. She told the crowd “come enjoy the journey with me.” Read the full review.

  • REVIEW: Fleetwood Mac at Rod Laver Arena Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    Given the well-documented dramas they’ve endured over the decades, you assumed by now Fleetwood Mac were pretty much invincible. However reuniting that classic Rumours-era line-up back for the 2014/2015 tour proved they had one more soap opera-style twist up their billowing sleeves. So in 2019, it’s either this Lindsey Buckingham-free version of Fleetwood Mac or […]
  • Fleetwood Frankenband a beautiful monster Tuesday, September 3, 2019
    FLEETWOOD MAC ★★★★ Rod Laver Arena, until September 9 Eighteen months ago, it seemed positively absurd that someone like Neil Finn – a well known musician and songwriter in his own right who had by no means put his feet up – could, or even would, join a band like Fleetwood Mac. Perhaps it still […]
  • Another Rumours deluxe set coming this fall Friday, August 23, 2019

  • Fleetwood Mac: Still going their own way Thursday, August 22, 2019
    Since it began as a British rock band in 1967, Fleetwood Mac has undergone 19 iterations while steadily adding Americans and, most recently, a New Zealander to its line-up. Its only remaining founding member is drummer Mick Fleetwood, who recently described each version of the group as “incredibly different musical episodes in this Shakespearean play […]
  • Seeing Fleetwood Mac in 2019 is a strange experience — but they’ve always been a strange band Wednesday, August 21, 2019
    If their songs weren’t so strong, endurance may be Fleetwood Mac’s greatest legacy Thirty minutes into Fleetwood Mac’s set at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre this week, Stevie Nicks admitted that she didn’t realise “Black Magic Woman” was a Fleetwood Mac song until well after she’d joined the band. It’s an astounding admission. Sure, the song […]
