Stevie talks about Walter Reed experience, writing ‘Soldier’s Angel’

In December, Stevie talked to Ultimate Classic Rock about the service members that she has visited at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Bethesda Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland.

Stevie made a series of visits to the hospitals starting in 2005, where she spent hours with men and women who were injured in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. As part of their rehabilitation, Stevie listened to their stories, took photographs with them, and gave them iPods filled with music. One particular experience at Walter Reed inspired her to write the song “Soldier’s Angel” (from In Your Dreams, 2011) and founded the Stevie Nicks Soldier’s Angel Foundation (a charity that helps injured U.S. military personnel) in 2006.

Stevie has been a long-time supporter of U.S. service members. In 1991, she wrote the song “Desert Angel” (from Timespace, 1991) for the U.S. men and women who served in Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm.

New Marvel series features ‘Soldier’s Angel’ in trailer

The new 45-second spot opens up with Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) bringing Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) up to speed on life after “The Battle of New York,” before launching into a mixture of new and old footage set to Stevie Nicks’ “Soldier’s Angel.” From what we can see, one of the subsequent episodes will take place in a jungle setting with plenty of gunplay and explosions, and a captured Coulson!

Our excitement for Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ hasn’t abated since the announcement in May, or the world premiere of the pilot episode at Comic-Con 2013, though most new trailers and photos have shown us what we’ve already seen. That all changes with ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”s latest trailer, serving up a world premiere of new footage not seen in the pilot, we promise!

Beginning somewhat similarly to today’s earlier trailer, the new 45-second spot opens up with Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) bringing Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) up to speed on life after “The Battle of New York,” before launching into a mixture of new and old footage set to Stevie Nicks’ “Soldier’s Angel.” From what we can see, one of the subsequent episodes will take place in a jungle setting with plenty of gunplay and explosions, and a captured Coulson!

While we await the September 24 premiere, we know that Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ features a cast that also includes Ming-Na as veteran agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as hacker Skye, and Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker as science team Gemma Simmons and Leo Fitz. ‘Ghost Whisperer’ vet David Conrad and ‘Luck‘ star Ian Hart have been added for recurring parts, though details remain light on their scientist roles.

Samuel L. Jackson previously stated that he expected to be involved with the show in some small capacity. Both Tom Hiddleston and Sam Rockwell are game to reprise their Marvel Cinematic Universe roles of Loki and Justin Hammer respectively, something we’ve analyzed the likelihood of in depth.

Well, what say we all? Does our first look at episodes beyond Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ pilot tantalize even further? How do you think the first season will progress? Watch the trailer above, and give us your ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ predictions in the comments!

Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks recounts dark days of Rumours

(Weapons of Mass Entertainment)
‘I probably sold 300,000 records [of the In Your Dreams album]. It’s awesome if you’re an unknown artist, but it’s not really that awesome if you’re Stevie Nicks.’ (Weapons of Mass Entertainment)

TORONTO – Fleetwood Mac songstress Stevie Nicks is tantalizing fans with a bold idea: a one-woman show.

Could something along the lines of “My Name is Stevie” (in the vein of Barbra Streisand’s “My Name is Barbra”) or “Stevie With an I-E” (in the spirit of Liza Minnelli’s “Liza With a Z”) be in the tarot cards?

The raspy-voiced veteran says it’s an idea her pal Dave Stewart has been trying to get her to embrace.

Nicks made the comments while appearing at the Canadian premiere of her documentary “In Your Dreams,” which follows her and the Eurythmics hitmaker as they write and record her 2011 album of the same name.

She says Stewart’s plan would involve massive video screens revealing images from Nicks’ storied life. But the “Landslide” crooner is laughing off the idea, noting: “I’m not Barbra Streisand.”

Nicks’ creative bond with Stewart is traced in an affectionate documentary that reveals the veteran rockers nit-picking over melodies and brainstorming lyrics at her home recording studio in California. The film plays in Toronto through Thursday before heading to other cities.

After the film, Nicks told a movie theatre full of fans that Stewart sees a new chapter in her career.

“He wants me to have video screens, like a big room of video screens where it’s all my whole life (up there). And I (said): ‘Dave, I’m not Barbra Streisand’,” Nicks said smiling. “But maybe. Maybe someday.”

She notes that her solo shows already feature a lot of talking, as opposed to the hit-laden concerts with her band Fleetwood Mac.

“It’s very different. Fleetwood Mac’s much more sophisticated and grownup and my show is just like a big slumber party in an auditorium. And I tell everybody the meanings of all these new songs. Because that’s how I draw people in,” says Nicks, who turns 65 on May 26.

After the movie, Nicks took questions from audience members, recounting the origins of her steadfast determination to be a star and dark days surrounding the recording of “Rumours.”

“It wasn’t really a pleasant experience,” she says.

“Lindsey (Buckingham) and I had pretty much just really broken up, and we’d kind of broken up off and on for a year before that. So this is 1977. None of the couples were happy… which, on one hand, really lends to the creative process.”

The film includes interviews with Nicks about Fleetwood Mac’s rise to fame, current sources of inspiration, childhood memories and her surprising passion for the Twilight franchise.

She notes that promoting the album In Your Dreams involved a grueling two years of touring and promotion. In the end, it didn’t amount to much.

“I didn’t sell a lot of records, you guys. For me, for a big act like moi, I didn’t. Worldwide I probably sold 300,000 records. It’s awesome if you’re an unknown artist and you have a hit single but it’s not really that awesome if you’re Stevie Nicks,” she said.

“It’s such a different age now.”

“In Your Dreams” heads to Ottawa on Friday and Saturday. It reaches Winnipeg on May 2, May 3 and May 5; Saskatoon on May 13; Edmonton on May 14; Calgary on May 16; Vancouver on May 18 and 23; and Montreal from June 14 to 17.

Fleetwood Mac performs at the Air Canada Centre on Tuesday. They head to Ottawa on April 23, Winnipeg on May 12, Saskatoon on May 14, Edmonton on May 15, Calgary on May 17 and Vancouver on May 19.

In Your Dreams
**** (4 stars)

TORONTO – In the feature film about her life, Stevie Nicks wants Reese Witherspoon to play her.

This is one of many revelations found in In Your Dreams, the documentary about the making of Nicks’ 2011 solo album of the same name, co-directed by Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, who also helmed the record with Glen Ballard.

On and off, over the course of a year, Stewart shot 50 hours of footage of the now 64-year-old Nicks, most intimately at her mansion high in the hills above Los Angeles. The resulting film features cameos by Witherspoon, Fleetwood Mac members Mick Fleetwood and Lindsey Buckingham, Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell and, of course, Stewart, who is a bit of a character himself.

When he’s not belting back the occasional martini, he’s got either an acoustic or electric guitar or camera in his hand.

During one funny moment, Stewart is filming Nicks and she looks up and says: “Oh, that was you the whole time. I’m going like, ‘Who’s the chick in the white outfit that’s filming us?’”

One genuine surprise? That until writing with Stewart, Nicks had never ever written a song with another person in the same room before.

“I don’t like to be told what to do,” she says at one point.

In another scene, she is seen arguing with Buckingham over tense changes in her lyrics.

“Would you say that to Bob Dylan?” Nicks asks him.

And when Stewart tries to insert some “too siren-y, too weird” guitar effects into a song, Nicks says bluntly: “Don’t quit your day job.”

No pushover is Nicks. And she’s honest too.

She admits to ending up with a demo reel of 23 Campbell tracks in the ’80s after visiting Tom Petty and stealing one — Runaway Trains — for a Fleetwood Mac song until Petty got wind of it.

“All I could hear was Tom screaming,” she says to the camera. “I was so busted.”

The movie is certain to appeal to fans of Nicks, whose gypsy persona, fashion style and throaty voice made her an icon.

And for those who aren’t devotees, the behind-the-scenes music-making with some of rock’s top musicians will fascinate.

In Your Dreams: Stevie Nicks is at the TIFF Bell Lightbox on Monday at 7 and 7:30pm, with Nicks conducting a Q&A afterward.

Two rock icons, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks and Dave Stewart of The Eurythmics, worked together on Nicks’ first album solo album in a decade, 2011’s In Your Dreams

But their creative collaboration didn’t end there.

There’s also a Stewart-directed 2013 behind-the-scenes documentary of the same name about making the record, co-produced by Glen Ballard, that will debut in Toronto Monday night. The film then moves across Canada over the next several weeks.
“It’s a movie that Stevie Nicks’ fans love,” says Stewart, 60, from L.A.

“Obviously, she’s been a bit of an enigma and very sort of mysterious and there’s an insight not only into her world and her home and how she works but inside her mind as well. How she works creatively and how she thinks. What’s good is that if you’re not a Stevie Nicks fan in particular and you watch it, you get kind of surprised at how kind of intense and focused she is working. Because I think a lot of the views or people’s opinions about artists during certain periods of their life is kind of spaced out, hippie like. And then you see Stevie at work in the film and you go, ‘Holy s—!’ She’s like a force of nature.”

Turns out Stewart and Nicks met 30 years ago.

The occasion was an Eurythmics show in Los Angeles and Nicks came backstage.

“We got on really well,” says Stewart. “And I went back to stay in L.A. for a bit and we hung out and I was writing just experimental stuff with her and I ended up writing this song for her but then Tom Petty liked it and wanted to record it — Don’t Come Around Here No More — that’s why at the end (of the film, Stevie) says, ‘Hey, Dave, definitely come around here!’ Because it became this epic sort of song for Tom.”
Stewart and Nicks regrouped again significantly in 2006 when Nicks appeared on a pilot for Stewart’s HBO music-themed interview show and they performed a 15-minute version of Rhiannon together.

In the documentary, she reveals after that collaboration she knew she wanted Stewart to produce either her next solo album or a Fleetwood Mac record.

“It all sort of organically turned into the record and the movie,” says Stewart.

He says after recording the album with Nicks and shooting about 50 hours of footage — boiled down to one hour and 40 minutes on-screen — he learned two significant things about her.

“Stevie’s incredibly generous. She’s always kept the same backing singers, the same friends… even the sounds guys and everybody. They’ve all stuck by her. They’re so loyal to her. And that’s an amazing thing that I discovered about Stevie of how deep that runs within her, this loyalty. And then all of the time and effort she puts into putting her lyrics together. Training herself in books and reading so much literature. She’s steeped in her job. She said it herself. She purposely decided not to have children because she just knew she couldn’t do both. It’s a massive decision.”

Toronto / TIFF Bell Lightbox (350 King St W) / April 15 (7 p.m and 7:30 p.m. with Stevie Nicks Q&A) and then April 16-18.

Stevie Nicks on In Your Dreams doc, Twilight-inspired song, Dave Grohl

Stevie Nicks In Your Dreams

Why she and Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham are getting along better than ever

When Dave Stewart first suggested to Stevie Nicks that he film the making of her 2011 solo album, In Your Dreams, which he co-produced, her blunt reaction was “I think you’re nuts.”

However, the Eurythmics co-founder convinced Nicks by simply reassuring her “If you don’t like it, we don’t use it.” And in the end, she not only liked it, but she saw the documentary as a way to extend the shelf life of the critically-acclaimed album, which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, but did not have the high-profile run Nicks hoped it would and fell off the charts after 16 weeks.

It’s easy to forget that even the most legendary musicians grapple with self-doubt. Stevie Nicks reminds us of that in a new documentary, In Your Dreams, which chronicles the making of her album of the same name.

In the exclusive clip below, Nicks discusses the recording of “Secret Love,” a song she wrote for Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours but never properly recorded for over 30 years. Oddly enough, a demo from those sessions found its way to YouTube, leaving Nicks with some mixed emotions.

“I said, ‘I don’t know how to feel about that,” because I would have been happier if nobody ever heard ‘Secret Love,’ so I’m trying to look at it from the other way and go ‘Well, everybody that’s had it for 30 years is really happy that it’s going to actually come out as a real song.’”

In the video, you can hear the original version and then watch as Nicks records the track with producer Dave Stewart, who also directed the documentary. For more information on In Your Dreams, visit the film’s official website. The documentary will screen around the U.S. for one night only on April 2, while Fleetwood Mac kicks off a world tour on April 4.

NEW YORK, March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Following the tremendous positive response to the Stevie Nicks documentary In Your Dreams, an intimate portrait of one of rock’s most enduring and legendary artists, at the Hamptons International Film Festival and the Mill Valley Film Festival, this up close portrayal of Nicks recording her critically acclaimed In Your Dreams CD in collaboration with Dave Stewart is now scheduled to screen in over 50 theaters across North America on April 2nd. Tickets will be available on www.inyourdreamsmovie.com once they go on sale. A current schedule of cities and theaters follows this release, with more cities to be added.

2011-fwiw2The In Your Dreams film is being distributed by Abamorama. Co-produced and co-directed by former Eurythmic Dave Stewart, In Your Dreams is a portrait of the elusive Nicks as she and Stewart embark on a musical journey to write and record the critically acclaimed album In Your Dreams. Nicks called this “the greatest year of my life” and felt compelled to share the joyful experience that she terms “the day the circus came to town” with her fans. The record was co-written by Nicks and Stewart and produced by Stewart and Glen Ballard. Watch the trailer at www.inyourdreamsmovie.com or the bottom of this page.

2009-moonlight20Nicks, one of the lead singers and emotional catalyst for Fleetwood Mac, is embarking on a world tour with them beginning April 4th in Columbus Ohio. A multi-Grammy-Award-winning artist and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Nicks allowed cameras inside her magical old mansion high atop the hills of LA with a wild cast of musicians and friends.  The inner life of the legendary Nicks has by her design long been kept at a distance from the public. We learn in Dreams that her world features, costume parties, elaborate dinner feasts, tap dancing, fantasy creations and revealing songwriting and recording sessions all of which are captured on film. Also cameos by Edgar Allan Poe, Mick Fleetwood, Reese Witherspoon, a massive white stallion in the backyard, owls and naturally a few vampires who appear in several “home movie” style music videos.

2009-cheaper9Along with tracking the Nicks/Stewart creative partnership, In Your Dreams has plenty of other cinematic payoffs including rare never before seen personal scrapbook stills from Nicks’ childhood and family life, and a wealth of candid backstage and performance shots taken over the last 35 years. The documentary was produced by Dave Stewart’s production company, Weapons of Mass Entertainment.

Nicks, who has sold millions of records as a solo artist and writer of such iconic songs as “Landslide,” “Gold Dust Woman” and “Edge of 17,” is regularly cited by stars as diverse as Taylor Swift, Kid Rock, Courtney Love, Sheryl Crow, The Dixie Chicks and John Mayer as an iconic favorite and heroine and is a continuous inspiration to the world’s top fashion designers.

2009-cheaper24“She is really real. It doesn’t matter if she is singing in the make-up room or in the middle of a TV interview.  She is who she is, and she doesn’t change,” commented Stewart.

“This is our baby and we give her lovingly into your dreams. From our tribe to yours,” concluded Nicks.

Stevie Nicks to appear at In Your Dreams Toronto screening

Toronto — The elusive Stevie Nicks, one of the founding members of legendary Fleetwood Mac, is set to let the public have a peak inside her personal life. The film debuts alongside the upcoming Fleetwood Mac tour dates.

In Your Dreams is a portrait of the elusive Nicks as she and Dave Stewart embark on a musical journey to write and record the critically acclaimed album In Your Dreams. Nicks called this “the greatest year of my life” and felt compelled to share the joyful experience that she terms “the day the circus came to town” with her fans.
