By | May 23, 2018
Stevie Nicks soared to epic stardom in the 1970s as the stylish and beautiful gypsy songstress of Fleetwood Mac, enchanting audiences with her raspy voice and fashion sense. Nicks was mysterious, earthy, angelic, and -- let's face it -- hot. With her appearance and her seductive vocals on tracks like "Dreams," "Rhiannon," and "Gold Dust Woman," Stevie Nicks seemed to embody the sexy feminine side of the '70s California music scene, a desert flower and urban enchantress to balance out the masculinity of the Eagles, Crosby Stills & Nash, and her own bandmate and (then) lover Lindsey Buckingham. Throughout her iconic career as an artist, she has enjoyed many successes. She one of the most popular and one of the hottest female vocalists of her time.
Decked out in her capes, hats, scarves, shawls, skirts and other assorted drapey textiles, Nicks commanded the stage like a creature audiences hadn't seen before. She was a hippie with style, and a style maven with bohemian blood. The '70s were a wild time, and Nicks had her share of strange days, but the persona she created never lost its allure. In these rare pictures of the living legend, we see Stevie Nicks as the Gold Dust Woman who's always fascinated us.
Stevie Nicks Is, And Always Was, A Rock And Roll Legend
From the moment she joined Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks demonstrated a presence and mystique that loomed larger than her contributions to the group. It's strange to think that she was clearly the standout on Fleetwood Mac and Rumours even though she only sang lead vocals on three tracks on each album. Rolling Stone magazine got it right in 1981, when they called Stevie Nicks, then starting her solo career, the "reigning queen of rock 'n roll."
