“I have striven to live up to the songwriting of Don Henley and Glenn Frey, Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell. I learned a long time ago that I’d have to work very hard to get even a blink from any of them, not as a woman or a performer, but as a writer.” – Stevie Nicks

“I am pretty fearless, and you know why? Because I don’t handle fear very well; I’m not a good terrified person. I learned that a long time ago. You know when you walk into your house and there’s nobody there and all the lights are out, it’s like I just fearlessly go into the dark, because I know if I start creepin’ out that it’ll get me. So I just try not to ever be afraid of anything. I just go, “Well, if the earthquake happens, I’ve got my steel-toed shoes and some rope, and we’ll get down a mountain.” Or you’ll be up there in a helicopter waving at us. I believe that we will just about get through anything.” – Stevie Nicks, 2001

Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’ was released on February 4th, 1977. 

I don’t care that everybody knows me and Chris and John and Lindsey and Mick all broke up,“ Stevie Nicks told Rolling Stone in Almost Famous director Cameron Crowe’s 1977 cover story. ”If it’s interesting, I’m not opposed to giving out information.“ She continued: ”On this album, all the songs that I wrote….are definitely about the people in the band. They’re all there and they’re very honest and people will know exactly what I’m talking about.
Herein lies the brilliance—the honesty, the voyeurism, the incredible self-possession—of a record like Rumours. It’s not merely the magnum opus of break-up albums, though it’s spawned a genre unto itself, its internecine warfare more complex than the standard relationship paean. Nor can it be reduced to the music, which in its 40-minute runtime is far greater than the sum of its ego and ire. Rumours remains, four decades along, a testament to the importance of work in the face of heartache, to the healing powers of art. It is, itself, a kind of weird elixir. It may even give us a reason to believe that bad omens can be overcome, once and for all, by the ways of magic.” – Jake Nevins
