My biggest hope is that I have opened the door due to the fact that there’s 22 men who have gone in twice and zero women. I think that’s really a little off balance. That’s what I’m hoping, that what’s happened here to me will give all the little rock and roll stars that are just waiting out there a little hope that they can also do what I do. Mind you, it took a long time. I’m 70 years old. It took a long time for this to happen, but maybe because of this it won’t take so long for all the other incredibly talented women that I know and that I respect and that I listen to and that I’m friends with. That’s really the nicest thing.
I want to be on the road. That’s part of who I am.
Stevie Nicks will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (again). She will be honored for her work as a solo artist. As we all know Stevie is a woman who stands on her own…with grace. Her power comes from the essence of who she is. Nothing is contrived. Her work is vulnerable and unusual and stunning. I could go on and on about what she’s done for me but let’s keep the focus on this artistic giant and let us all bask in her whimsy and just get lost in the song for a while.
Thirty-seven years ago today, the successful Bella Donna Tour came to an end a little too soon as Stevie was expected to join Fleetwood Mac for the recording of ‘Mirage’ in France.
December 13, 1981 marks the end of a tour that helped catapult Stevie into stardom as a solo artist, and today her prolific and inspiring solo career gets even more recognition as she becomes the first woman to be inducted to the Rock Hall of Fame twice. Thank you, Stevie for pursuing your dreams and empowering all of us along the way.
“… And I want to go on the beach with my silent typewriter and I don’t want anybody to bother me… Because I want to enhance this planet. I came here for a reason. I didn’t come here to be a mother. I didn’t come here to be a nun. And I did not come here to be a cleaning lady. I came here to be a poet.” – Stevie Nicks
“I have a lot to say about this,” Nicks says in a statement, “but I will save those words for later. For now I will just say, I have been in a band since 1968. To be recognized for my solo work makes me take a deep breath and smile. It’s a glorious feeling.”

“It’s the year of the woman!” – Stevie Nicks introducing ’Black Magic Woman’ in 2018.
“I totally believe in magic. Because my life, I think, has been very magic, and magical things have come true for me time after time after time.”
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."
