No one looked or sounded like Stevie Nicks; she stood out as the hypnotic superstar in the five-piece Fleetwood Mac. Not only that, she was also a prolific songwriter. As she was playing a key part in Fleetwood Mac's massive success in the '70s, she was also becoming frustrated. Nicks, Buckingham and Christine McVie were all songwriters, and there just wasn't enough space on an LP for them all to contribute as much as they liked.
Nicks had to branch out, and did when she launched her solo career with her first album, Bella Donna, which went to the top of the album chart and contained three hit singles: "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" (with Tom Petty), "Leather And Lace" (with Don Henley), and "Edge Of Seventeen." Nicks never left Fleetwood Mac -- she just had more to give the world, and her successful solo career has continued alongside her band's ever since.
She Captured The Essence Of The 70's
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.
