Stevie Nicks performs tonight in St. Louis

By Scott Kiefer
Special to the News-Democrat
Friday, June 13, 2008

Rock icon, artist, songwriter, aunt and inspiration to millions, Stevie Nicks just reached the milestone of turning 60 years old on May 26. She sees it as a defining moment in her life that has brought about some realizations about her personal life, her career and what she needs to maintain and to change.

“It’s been a wonderful, hectic, glamorous, miserable, exciting, tumultuous life,” said Nicks in a telephone interview from Florida last week. “Who could ask for more?”

Nicks will perform at 8 p.m. tonight at the Chaifetz Arena at St. Louis University.

Although Nicks has this persona of being mysterious, elusive, mystical, and hard to reach, she has always been an open book during interviews … which aren’t granted often.

“My life has been such an open book anyway, so when I do interviews, there’s really nothing to not talk about,” said Nicks jokingly. “Sometimes I even get to set the record straight.”

Nicks isn’t really bothered by her recent birthday.

“Really, it is just a number,” said Nicks, “but an important one. Better that the alternative. I would say. I’ve never been one to be obsessed with my numerical age. I really do believe you are as young as you feel, and as long as you are happy within yourself and good to others, your youth shines through, no matter what your age. It’s all about change…in lifestyle, diet, and emotionally. Age is about learning and growing, not your number.”

Nicks shows no signs of slowing down.

She is currently working on writing the story for the production of a movie based on the hit Fleetwood Mac single of 1976, “Rhiannon.”

“I have been working on this for quite some time,” said Nicks. “It’s really been a work in progress for 30 years. This is it, though. As soon as this tour is finished, I’m off to a secluded place in Europe (she didn’t disclose where) to finish the writing, and do some tweaking on the finished product. After that, we are meeting with people like HBO or Showtime to hopefully do a mini-series type of movie. It is such a wonderful story, and there is so much more to be told about ‘Rhiannon.’”

After that, Nicks will sign on for the all-original Fleetwood Mac tour.

“Yes, we are going to do it, at least once more,” said Nicks. “All of us except Christy (Christine McVie). She is just so ‘over’ that whole thing. She has done it, again and again, she just doesn’t want to do the touring anymore.”

Nicks stated that the group will start working on material and recording probably in October, and finish an album.

“We should be getting into tour rehearsals in January or February, and get out on the road in the spring of next year.”

Asked about the rumors surrounding the replacement of McVie by Sheryl Crow, Nicks said it would not be happening.

“Actually, Lindsey and I will be taking some of the songs that Christine sang on record, and we will be sharing the vocals,” said Nicks. “After all, we wrote most of them anyway, and we feel it was best for us to do them instead of bringing someone else in to take her place. We want to show her our respect, and include her in the show, because she was such an important part to our group.”

The lives of the members of Fleetwood Mac were definitely the rock ‘n’ roll soap opera of the late ‘70s and ‘80s, but Nicks doesn’t like to dwell so much on the negativity and the hype that surrounded the group.

“We definitely had our moments in the spotlight,” said Nicks, “and some hellatious ones out of the spotlight too. But, it’s all good now. In fact, Lindsey and I are really doing good, we are friends … for now at least.”

Nicks attributes much of the high drama within the band to the creativity each member possesses.

“When you have creative people such as we are, and we are all artists, you have high emotions and feelings, and that is how we expressed ourselves — and still do really,” said Nicks. “It’s hard to live with, work with and be constantly around someone who has such creativity and emotion spilling out of them all of the time, and not have conflict. It’s just the way it is. But we’re all fine right now.”

With the movie script and the band reunion, you would think that Nicks has enough on her plate.

“I also will be working on some of my paintings, and I’m always writing new songs, poems, things like that,” said Nicks.

Will there be a new solo album soon?

“That’s something that I can’t say will or will not happen,” said Nicks. “As I said, I am constantly writing, but not just for me. Some of the stuff I do may turn up on a Mac album, or maybe I will have a solo album, I’m not ruling out anything.”

Nicks has just moved into a large apartment on the oceanfront in Santa Monica, where she lives alone.

“I am in ‘Stevie’s Place’ now,” said Nicks, “all by myself. I loved my large home in Phoenix, but it was more of a bother than it was enjoyable to me. I was always wondering about redecorating this room or that room or the landscaping or the kitchen or whatever. Kind of a pain in the a—, really.”

“See, that’s what I mean about the creativity flowing,” said Nicks. “Where I am at now, I am by myself, and can concentrate on the movie script ideas, my paintings, and my songwriting. I can get up in the middle of the night and see the moonlight on the water and watch it make a glisten on the waves, and work on whatever it is I need too, until I can watch the sun rise over the ocean. Or, I can just do whatever the h—- I want.”

Nicks sees this as an advantage to herself and her family.

“I can do these things when they come upon me, and I can be in my world,” said Nicks. “This is why, I realize, that I never had children, and that I will never be married. Things in my life are kind of like coming together, and yet starting over, all at the same time.”

Nicks is currently on a short tour of only 15 dates in North America in promotion of the Crystal Visions CD and DVD project.

Nicks is also appearing this season on the PBS Soundstage music series in a two-episode concert.

“Doing the show for PBS was a thrill, and an honor,” said Nicks. “Public television is something that is very important, not only for its entertainment value, but for the educational opportunities it provides…”

During this tour, Nicks is doing all of the expected hits such as “Rhiannon,” “Stand Back” and “Edge of Seventeen,” but has thrown in some exciting covers as well.

“We have to do the hits that the fans expect,” said Nicks, “but, we’ve thrown in a Dave Mathews song, and a Bob Seger song, plus a couple of other surprises.”

“This is gonna be more of a rock and roll show,” said Nicks. “I can’t wait to perform at St. Louis, because it was one of the better shows I did last year with Tom Petty.

“Tom asked me to come out and do six shows, and do just six songs on each date,” said Nicks. “And I was thrilled. I’ve always had this fantasy about being a member of the Heartbreakers. Tom helped me to make that dream come true. It was so much fun that we ended up doing 23 days. And for Tom to foot the bill for my expenses for that many dates — and believe me it ain’t cheap — says a lot about my friend.

“After the tour was over, he gave me a gold, five-point sherriff’s badge with five diamonds on each point with an inscription on the back that read ‘To Stevie, our honorary Heartbreaker.’ That was one of my most special moments in life, and I will probably never get the chance to do something like that again.”

Nicks is really looking at a new lease on life.

“With all that I have going right now, it seems as though I have just started my life all over again. To h—- with counting my birthday numbers, who needs ‘em anyway?”

Stevie’s Top 10 Shining Moments of 2007

(Listed in descending order for dramatic effect…drum roll please!)

10. Let’s make a deal here: Stevie sells somes houses (recurring).

In addition to prolific singer-songwriter, you can add real estate tycoon to Stevie’s varied resume, with multi-million dollar deals pending in Phoenix and Los Angeles this year.

 9. Walk gently through my shadow: Stevie mentors the girls of tomorrow.

According to the side of my Starbucks cup, it was Madeleine Albright—former secretary of state and ambassador to the UN—who once said “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.” In full Rock Mama mode for a good chunk of the year, Stevie did her part to avoid that “special place” by giving a pep talk to funny girl musician Vanessa Carlton (providing harmony vocals on “The One”), a lecture to party tart Britney Spears (warning about the dangers of fame…too late!), and a reality-check to sometimes acting, sometimes singing, sometimes rehabbing Lindsay Lohan (squashing those silly Stevie biopic rumors). C’mon girls, do Stevie proud!

8. Stevie appears on the cover of Performing Songwriters (June).

It’s always special when Stevie makes the cover of a magazine at this late stage of her career. In this interview-style feature, Stevie reflects on the recording of her solo records, including the one where she was “slipping into darkness.” There’s still no love for Street Angel, which comes off like one bad haircut in this interview.

 7. Stand back! Stevie performs at Super Bowl XLI pregame show (February).

Randy Jackson from “American Idol” might have dismissed this performance as “pitchy” and “just a’ight.” Blame it on sound problems or Stevie being a little hoarse that day, but our gal still managed to get millions of TV viewers to tune in—not to mention the 150,000 hits she earned over at YouTube. Not too shabby for a less than stellar performance, which still received a loud ovation from the Bud-boozing tailgaters.

6. Stevie rocks at Ahmet Ertegun tribute (April).

Looking fabulous in hot black sequined pants, Stevie performed “Stand Back” and “Rock and Roll” before an all-star industry crowd—which included Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and Crosby, Stills, and Nash—at this rocking memorial celebration for legendary Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. Hmm, maybe it was Stevie who inspired that Led Zeppelin reunion?

5. Stevie performs on The Ellen Show (April).

Clearly one of her the most animated TV performances in recent memory, Stevie got her sexy on by firing up an exciting performance of “Stand Back”—complete with trademark spinning, flying arms, and some fierce crouching tiger action. The kicks were mini-sized, but still hot hot hot.

Stevie returned to the stage later for the cool down, treating her adoring audience with a satisfying rendition, albeit cut short for TV land, of the classic “Landslide” (a.k.a. MegaMooolah)

4. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ Running Down a Dream box set is released (October).

The true gold of this release (as only a biased Stevie Nicks fan could assert) is the September 2006 Gainesville, Florida, performance (included on one of the four discs), where Stevie provides guest vocals on “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” “I Need to Know,” “Insider,” and “American Girl.” Stevie has said in many interviews that she had the time of her life while touring with Petty and the gang—actually turning down the paycheck for the opportunity. And you thought we were hardcore Stevie fans. Stevie’s hardcore for Tom!

3. Crystal Visions…The Very Best of Stevie Nicks (March) / Soundstage taping (October)

For an artist whose concert tours far exceed her recording output, it’s mystifying that Stevie hasn’t released a live album by now. But Crystal Visions seemed to address this problem by showcasing five new live tracks (“Rhiannon,” “Landslide,” “Rock and Roll,” “Edge of Seventeen,” and iTunes exclusive “Stand Back”) from 2005 and 2006.

Even more exciting was Stevie’s official taping of PBS Soundstage, the popular concert showcase series. “Sara,” “If Anyone Falls in Love,” and “How Still My Love” are some of the (relatively) rare favorites destined to reach DVD, which Soundstage has typically released following one of their broadcasts (fingers crossed).

2. Crystal Visions Tour (The Love Tour) (May)

We may never get a fresh new set list again. But who cares. Stevie still puts on a great show—sounding confident and commanding a stage presence that no other rock star today can match. It certainly helps to have a mesmerizing velvet spacesuit in your wardrobe case.

The tour begin in Concord, CA, on May 17 and ended in Atlantic City, NJ, on August 24. Hunky surfer funny guy Chris Isaak joined Stevie for part of the looooove tour.

1. Do it for yourself, do it for the world: Stevie was doing it all year long!

It’s no secret how charitable Stevie is, having supported important causes for most of her career. But more impressive, her good deeds often occur behind scenes with little fanfare. If fans weren’t so nosy (myself shameless included), we probably wouldn’t know the half of it. Whether she’s visiting the recovering soldiers at Walter Reed Medical Army, assisting the displaced people of hurricane-ravaged New Orleans, or inspiring a brave heart-transplant patient, Stevie has opened her heart to all of them this year. Sweet girl.


CBS Sunday Morning News interview (March)

It was a fine interview and Stevie looked fantastic, but it was basically VH1 Behind the Music all over again.

Stand Back remixed (August)

Stevie had the club kids going gaga over these hot new dance mixes that ultimately raced up the dance charts and inspired a commercial CD single release.

Dear Superstar: Stevie Nicks

1977-stevieTuesday, May 1, 2007

A pineapple scent wafts through Stevie Nicks’s Maui house. Outside, the Pacific Ocean laps at volcanic rocks, and inside, New Age music fills the air. Just when you get the feeling a unicorn is about to saunter into view, Nicks opens her mouth and starts talking about menopause. “It drives people crazy when I bring it up, but I think it’s important,” she says.

The 58-year-old Fleetwood Mac star has always been more candid than your average witchy woman. The singer of such stone classics as “Dreams,” “Rhiannon” and “Edge of Seventeen,” she doesn’t mind answering questions about her past vices (coke: yes; heroin: hell no) and her past consorts (including bandmates Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood, who owns the house across the street). During rock’s golden age of excess, she was a top-ranking diva, demanding the presidential suites at hotels and traveling by private train. She’s even been the star of two episodes of Behind the Music, but curled up on the sofa today, the ethereal one seems more or less at peace.

“This is my vacation time,” she says with a laugh. Some vacation — she’s been assembling Crystal Visions … The Very Best of Stevie Nicks, a CD/DVD solo-career retrospective. In May, she’ll head out on tour. Perhaps, we ask hopefully, there’s one last Fleetwood Mac reunion in the works? “I can’t tell you that,” she demurs. “But the doors are never closed … ”

It’s July 1977. Describe your average day.
Russian.Bear, Lexington, VA

We would have been working on Rumours in Los Angeles. An average day would have been getting up and going to the studio, pretty much six days a week. It was fun. I enjoy the process of recording. I’d have my special chair, my special coffee cup — I’m very at home there. And every day somebody brings something: Somebody brings fishnets and puts them over the lamps, somebody brings pillows, and then Mick Fleetwood brings a statue and pretty soon there’s a pair of giant African elephant tusks bracketing the soundboard.

What is “Gold Dust Woman” really about?
Aronowizz, Kingston, NY

The “Gold Dust” thing came from a street in Phoenix, where I grew up, which is called Gold Dust Lane or Avenue or something. “Gold Dust Woman” was kind of a premonition of the beginning of the drug world. When I say, “take your silver spoon and dig your grave” it sounds like I was right in the middle of the drugs, but I really wasn’t; there weren’t any drugs around Fleetwood Mac for quite a while. But it was a premonition of getting famous really fast and being thrown into a whole culture. “Gold Dust Woman” was just me looking around and going, This is a pretty scary society down here, and boy, I hope we make it.

Have you ever watched the Fleetwood Mac Behind the Music? Is there any part of it that just makes you cringe?
VanMan1969, Reading, MA

I think both of the Behind the Musics — the Stevie Nicks and the Fleetwood Mac one — are really good. I’m proud of those shows. And today, if they’re on, I’ll watch them and I’ll cry! They should be shown to all the girls going into rehab — just watch my Behind the Music episodes and learn what not to do!

Was Lindsey Buckingham the great love of your life?
Epress3x, Amarillo, TX

“Great love” connotes a lot of things. He was the great musical love of my life. I can compare it to Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash in that movie — they loved each other for two reasons. You can love somebody because you fall in love with them, but you also love what they do. And that’s a double whammy.

Do you have any tips on conducting an office romance?
Illisimo5673, Altamonte Springs, FL

Your office is my road; it’s all the same thing. And I think that it never works and will always, always backfire. Those relationships are over once the intensity of the moment is over. And then somebody gets hurt. It never works.

Which lyric are you most proud of?
Lbubbrs, Los Angeles

That’s hard. Any song of mine that goes out into the world I’m pretty proud of. Hmmm … I’m thinking about a song called “Storms,” off Tusk. “Every night that goes between/I feel a little less/As you slowly go away from me/This is only another test/Every hour of fear I spend/My body tries to cry/Living through each empty night/A deadly call inside.” Those lyrics came out when I was really hurting.

Is it true that Lindsay Lohan is going to play you in a movie?
Empier81, Lompoc, CA

Lindsay Lohan thinks she is going to play me! But what the hell movie does she think she’s talking about? There is no book, there is no screenplay, there is no movie. There is never going to be a movie made without me, because it’s never going to be the story of me. Even though a lot has been written about me, the fact is nobody actually has a clue to what my life was really like. So good luck, Lindsay.

What’s the worst rumor you’ve ever heard about yourself?
Julian.George, Madison, WI

Probably it would be from the drug years, when people thought I was doing heroin. I never did. You can do a lot simpler drugs than heroin and still get in trouble.

What was the high point of Fleetwood Mac on-the-road excess?
Ayteemit, Manchester, NH

The way we traveled. We had a big 737 commuter jet done up beautifully on the inside — it’s what professional basketball players rent. We had that for a year and a half. I still fly on a jet, but my jet is way littler these days. With Fleetwood Mac everything was huge, and it still is today. We always stay in the best hotels. I get the presidential suite over everybody, because I demand it.

Is it true your performance of “Don’t Stop” made Bill Clinton cry at the 1993 presidential inauguration?
Nilespine, Tripp, SD

Well, if it did, I don’t know about it, because I’m as blind as a bat and he was far enough away from me that I doubt I could have seen it. However, I do know that he loved “Don’t Stop,” and he dreamed of using it in a campaign long before he ran for president. He was riding in a cab somewhere — this is the story that we got — and he heard that song and he said, “If I ever run for something big I’m going to use that as my song.”

Do you still have a ballet studio in your house? When was the last time you did the splits?
Perry.Gold, Tucson, AZ

In my house in Phoenix, I do maintain the ballet room that I’ve had since 1981. I can still do a split, not a problem, because I’m limber. People who can do the splits can always do the splits.

Have you ever attended the drag tribute Night of a Thousand Stevies? and When did you realize you had become a drag icon?
Nandoor1, Jackson, OH

I was on a plane coming from the Super Bowl, and one of the stewards was telling me that he was a big fan and that he went to Night of a Thousand Stevies every year. He was six-foot-five and telling me all about his dress and his fantastic boots. Whoa! I still haven’t gone, but I’ve seen footage, and I have to say, I couldn’t be more flattered!

Have you ever been tempted by Scientology?
Lenhub88, Bucks County, PA

I have never been approached. I don’t really get it. I think it’s a little weird.

You recorded 1994’s Street Angel when you were addicted to Klonopin. What did you think when you first heard it after you got out of rehab?
Pillowpop4, Gaithersburg, MD

I went back in and tried to fix it! It wasn’t that it wasn’t good, it was just, if you’re taking a lot of tranquilizers everyday, it only makes sense that the music will be verrry tranquil. So I tried to fix it, which is kind of like trying to redo a house: You end up spending way more money than if you had just burned it to the ground and started over. It wasn’t fixable.

What advice would you offer to Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan as they go through rehab?
Starz431, Providence, RI

I’m more worried about Britney than Lindsay, because I think Lindsay is a serious actress, and that is going to be her saving grace. The only thing I could ever say is — I look over film footage and interviews for the Crystal Visions DVD, and I can totally tell when I’m high. There are a couple of videos that are really good — except that I was high. I’m sorry I let that happen. I ask myself, “Stevie, could you have just, while you were filming that video, not done any cocaine and not drank and not smoked pot? For those three days, could you have laid off of it so you could have looked great?” But I didn’t, and now I’m very sorry. If I could have gotten it together a little more I would have had a better career. I would have made a couple more great albums, I would have painted more pictures. You are sorry later … that’s what I would tell them.

What happens to us when we die?
Ulee43, Port St. Lucie, FL

I absolutely believe that there is an afterlife. I’ve had one afterlife experience where I did go to that other place. I fell off a horse. I was riding with a bunch of people — I didn’t even hit the ground, really; my brother jumped off his horse and caught me mid-flight but it scared me so bad that I lost consciousness. And I felt myself go up into this really light place. I could see the horses around me and hear the riders’ voices. I felt like I was rolling down a mountain, starting to go really fast … Then I opened my eyes. But for a minute I felt like I really had a choice to make, to come back. So I think there is an afterlife, and it’s a good place.

Do you have any vices these days?
Alex.neric, Lincoln, NE

Since I got out of rehab in 1994, I’ve stopped doing serious drugs. And then as menopause touched my life, I stopped even having a glass of wine. I don’t drink at all. I find that I’m spacey enough on my own that I don’t need to be drinking or smoking; it just doesn’t fit into my life anymore. I’m very glad, because it’s not like I’m fighting every day to not do drugs. They’re just gone.

Is it true you keep your feathers and lace in a climate-controlled facility?
Stagehanddan, Fenton, MS

I keep all my stage clothes in cases, and they go into storage in temperature-controlled rooms. Chiffon lasts forever if you take good care of it!

Retrospective planned for November

Rhino Records will be issuing a single disc retrospective tentatively called The Best of Stevie Nicks on November 7 (November 6 in the UK). The disc may not include new material, according to Nicks who first mentioned the project to Australian press in 2005. The retrospective was intended to coincide with her 2005 Australian tour. After several delays, however, music retailers later reported that the release was unexpectedly withdrawn.

The CD is available for pre-order now at Amazon.comCD Universe, and Play.com(UK) .

Rhino releases in limbo

The rumored DVD issue of VH1 Storytellers: Stevie Nicks (extended cut) has been shelved indefinitely, though some online retailers are still reporting its tentative release on July 4 (in the UK). Rhino has confirmed that they will not be issuing the DVD in the near future.

Nicks’ recording label, Reprise Records, has not officially confirmed either release.

Summer tour, Stevie Nicks best-of CD anticipated

A summer tour coupling Stevie Nicks and Don Henley is in the works, according to Billboard:

“Considering the success of their recent tours with the Eagles and Fleetwood Mac, respectively, Henley and Nicks would seem to be a can’t miss collaboration. Henley has joined Nicks on stage on several occasions during her solo tours for the duet “Leather and Lace,” most recently at the last two shows of her 2001 Trouble in Shangri-La trek.”

Meanwhile, Rhino Records has an updated retrospective titled The Best of Stevie Nicks tentatively scheduled for release on Tuesday, May 24. (Source: Rhino Records, Mike Cooper /HMV)
