Stevie Nicks and I have known each other a long time and have sung duets over the years. She is a good friend, the most down-to-earth, loving woman who doesn’t let her fame and fortune get in the way of being a real person.

Courtney Love: One thing you’ve always done, I realized recently, is write about these muses, these other females, these goddesses. These parts of yourself. You don’t write big, sexy love ballads about men. I wondered why that was for you? Because I do the same thing. I was listening to a song of Billy Corgan’s yesterday called “I Need a Lover.” It’s sexy, okay. But I’m listening and I’m going, I can’t write like this. 


Stevie Nicks:
You know how else asked me that same question a long time ago: Prince. We were really close for a while–we never went to bed together, but we had something that was very, very special. And he always said, Why don’t you write songs that are more sexual? And I said, Well, because that’s no the way I am in my real life. I am not a person who walks naked through the house. I will always have something beautiful on. It will be beautiful, and it will enhance me.

“People say to me there’s never a look on your face like there is the look that is on your face when you’re on that stage, ‘cause that’s where I belong and I’m not near as good at home or at a party on an airplane or anywhere else.”

“I have always felt I am exactly where I am supposed to be, doing exactly what I was supposed to be doing.” – Stevie Nicks, 2017.

In my mind, I’m not old. If you put out a youthful vibe and don’t sound like an old lady, people fall for it. I always tell my young friends, you think you won’t care any more in your late 60s, but you will. So you need to take care of your hair and skin, and get a little exercise, otherwise you’ll just be an old granny.

An episode with Stevie Nicks

An episode with Stevie Nicks:

Do you ever suffer imposter syndrome or have you always felt that you are where you belong?


“No, I have never suffered imposter syndrome. I have always felt I am exactly where I am supposed to be, doing exactly what I was supposed to be doing.”

As of now, I don’t have a coven. But if I get one, I’ll let you know. It makes me feel like when I was 20 and I knew that I wanted to be a rock and roll star, that I made the right decision to go through the next 40 to 50 years and bring as much wisdom as I could to the people that like my music.

I call it my quest, but since 1978, I’ve been so busy. Every time I make a start, I get a call to say there’s an offer to do shows. It’s probably a good thing I don’t have a husband and kids as balancing everything I want to do is almost impossible. There are so many things I need to do before I die.

“I go running up and ask her why I couldn’t touch her hands and she told me it was because somebody…”

“I go running up and ask her why I couldn’t touch her hands and she told me it was because somebody had crushed her hand once and it freaked her out. I told her to give me her hands — I think I have magic hands — and I took them in mine and told her ‘I am never going to hurt your hands’ and somewhere in that moment, I knew ‘We are good’. She’s a hoot, she likes me and she doesn’t like many people.”

“Mick (Fleetwood) and I have actually adopted Harry Styles; he’s the very tall and handsome 23-year-old son we never had. We just love him; he’s really talented and he’s a nice guy with beautiful manners.”
