Stevie Nicks is such a talented singer songwriter. She's been my idol since I was 12 and I discovered the Fleetwood Mac album with Rhiannon and Landslide in my sister's bedroom. Something about that band and her voice and style sucked me in and I've always felt safe and happy when I have her music on. I honestly feel she is this Angel sent here to comfort her fans in good times and bad.
After the second listen of her new album I was blown away. Her songwriting and voice seem to be at its best and most of the songs are really well produced. I love how it emcompasses all her styles from country rock n roll to classic rock to romantic ballads. She definitely delivered some of her best work in years on this new album and she still looks like a million bucks.
2 close friends of mine here in LA have had the pleasure of meeting her (one backstage at a FM show and the other at her house this year doing press for her new album) and they, like everyone else, say she so sweet and warm to everyone she meets. They say she is so down to earth and she still radiates the most youthful energy in the room. She even went out of her way while backstage after her show to tell my friend and his buddies (who she just met) all about her San Francisco days in the 1960s opening shows for Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmQ_1sXZJxI
