I’m obsessed with her, and I sometimes can’t function around her. I have a half moon tattoo, for a couple reasons, but one of them is Steve Nicks. She’s definitely someone that I love to work with. She’s so fun to chat with. She’s Stevie Nicks! She’s so talented, it’s insane. I’ve never seen her in concert, so I’m definitely gonna try to go this year. I’ve been wanting to go so badly, and I’m always working. This year, I’ve already put it on the calendar.
“We do not lay down on the road for anybody to walk over us, ever."
Stevie Nicks & Haim for New York Times Magazine, October 6, 2014.
“And if there’s anything really to say about time, real love doesn’t die.“
Stevie Nicks on her friendship with Tom Petty, “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” official music video commentary.
I’m a massive Stevie Nicks fan. I love her. I think “Dreams” is the best song ever written and she wrote that. I had dinner with her one night. She said, “Why don’t you come sing on my record?” I went in the next day, and I cut it. It was fun. She’s just raw. You just give her the mic, and she goes for it. She’s there. She’s all-in. Nothing else matters.
Insider, Live at Stephen C. O’Connell Center, Gainesville, FL – September 21, 2006
“Stevie had joined the tour, Ryan notes, so by this point they had Insider down. She would turn her mic sideways and watch Tom and match the phrasing-she’s a pro-and this is just a great performance of a great song; I liken this to ‘fine aged wine’ period of Tom’s career. You can sing a song at a certain age and it means on thing, and you can sing it 20 years later and it means something else entirely.” (…)

Demo Recording – 1984
“That was a great combination of those two voices, and a really good song”, Campbell says of the original demo, recorded during the protracted ‘Southern Accents’ project, of a song that was recut for ‘Full Moon Fever’; Stevie Nicks sings on both versions. “Tom’s songs are so good you feel like you know the people speaking-they’re real and identifiable. This is a perfect example.”
Obviously, Stevie Nicks is on a whole other level. I don’t think I’m allowed to talk about it quite yet…but that was on another level because she’s Stevie Nicks. Her voice means everything to me, as I know it does so many other people, and she also couldn’t have been more fantastic and lovely and wonderful.
Well, the last thing I’ll say is that your dad is looking down on you and he’s very proud of you and he loves you and he’s right on your shoulder. Yes, he is there. I lost my mom about five years ago and she talks to me, like about the stupidest things, like don’t drink that, it has a lot of acid in it. [Laughs] It’s crazy, you know? If I ever thought there wasn’t another side, [I now know] there is. There absolutely is. Always know that.
