Stevie returns to American Horror Story
 
Just read on ew.com that Stevie is coming back to American Horror Story. Doesn't say whether that means through her music or an actual appearance.

Exciting either way!

My idea for Stevie's return: she brings back the Stevie fan Misty and releases her from her torment! I hated what they did to Misty. :( However, cool that Stevie is returning.

Wow, talk about incredible timing- American Horror Story returns Sept 12 and the Fleetwood Mac tour begins Oct 3. What a way to bring some publicity to the band and the tour!

I see Lily Rabe is returning, so I hope Misty's character is back!

I saw this on Facebook yesterday. I am psyched. I hope they give her a little bit of meat to the role. I would love to see her bring Misty back from the dead or something. It would be a hoot!!

This season is called Apocalypse. My guess is she’s playing The stevie of Death. (Old ledge meme).

BombaySapphire3 08-08-2018 11:13 AM

I actually hope they do not give her much of a chance to act .She is by her own admission a terrible actress and her attempts at it in AHS coven episode bore this out.

Such a classic. One of the best threads we've ever had here.

Absolutely! I couldn't get enough of it.

secondhandchain 08-08-2018 10:39 PM

I hear she's going to go on the show and fire everyone so the show can just be about her.

This is awesome news! I"m sure all the Misty Day fans are going crazy right now. I have a great niece who listens to Stevie all the time because of that series.

That's exactly what I was hoping for. Lily Rabe is going to be back too, so it's possible!

Bandon 08-09-2018 06:17 PM

They just announced on the radio she's returning as long lost ghost Coco Puffington.

Hawkeye 08-09-2018 07:51 PM

It’s hilariousl how all the headlines about this basically list Stevie like she’s some kind of series regular. Some go on to clarify she just had a small guest spot in coven, but most articles jut list her along with the actual actors who have all been in many other seasons, like they are all of equal importance to the series. :laugh:

No, I heard she's only going to fire people on the show who also want to play the exact same characters on a competing show in the same time slot. You know, double-dipping? That's just bad business, regardless of the success of either show. ;)

Fig 1. In this still from the new season of AHS, Stevie Nicks (played by Lily Rabe playing Stevie Nicks playing Misty Day) hears a Lindsey Buckingham tune on the radio and stabs his portrait in torment.

Oh, I hear them all the time..Gypsy, Everywhere, Dreams..:rolleyes: .. oh wait, I get it, you were only counting songs he wrote/sung himself (Go Your Own Way), not Stevie or Chris's ok-to-good songs he took to stratospheric greatness or flat out saved from being plodding drivel :wavey:

Not Fleetwood Mac songs - I was referring to Lindsey Buckingham solo songs.

I know I'll get roasted for this, even though it's a genuinely sincere question, but I would love an actual adult conversation about this: why is it that Lindsey's songs, with FM and solo, aren't hit singles? Go Your Own Way, Tusk, Big Love, and Trouble are the only hit songs he's written and performed. To this day, I'm confused as to why Holiday Road only peaked at #82, I think. It gets more airplay today than Trouble, certainly.

With FM, is it because more of his songs weren't actually released as singles? Monday Morning seemed like an obvious single, and so did Second Hand News. I think those two songs would have been hits, so why weren't they released?

Solo songs, after Trouble, Lindsey never seemed to get radio airplay. In fact, the radio would play Big Love by FM, but I always suspected if it had been a solo record, it would have been ignored by radio. Always seemed weird to me. Anybody have any theories. And can we keep it polite, with no snarky comments on either side?

Because the songs are pretentious and annoying as is his voice and delivery.

well, if we're talking about sales figures- basically how most diehard Stevie fanatics measure creativity/artistic imporance- which is beyond sad, but I'll just leave it at that.. but basically anyone with actual taste in music would tell you the highest grossing acts from about the mid 80s to the present is riddled with trite garbage..to each their own though!

In my mind, songs that were recorded under the FM name are FM songs and solo songs are solo songs. I never liked it when FM performed Stand Back or Go Insane. They have too deep a treasure trove to chose from to play solo stuff as a band. I'm hoping not to hear any solo stuff from Stevie or new members on the upcoming tour.

Have to disagree with this statement. Out of the Cradle, Gift of Screws and Under the Skin are all great solo records and probably should have spawned radio hits for Lindsey. I'm not sure what the public bias is, but I enjoy Lindsey's solo work as well as his work with FM.

His stuff just lacks mass appeal, the music and he himself do not have an allure or mystique to most, in fact they are just irritating. Sorry.

I like Lindsey but I do agree with part of this. He was never gonna be a solo success commercially because aside from the fact that he mostly never wanted to make music that appealed to the masses, he just doesn't have that 'star' quality. Whether he intends to or not, he comes off too serious a lot of the time and just isn't that much a people person. He's gotten better over the years but back in the 80s he had issues and it showed in interviews, he always just seemed uncomfortable.

I heard that some of his songs in the 80s played on the radio somewhat frequently. Idk how well they charted but I remember watching one of his weird music videos from I think Go Insane and in the comments people were talking about how they remembered the song and video from their college days and things like that.
Holiday Road is different because it was just another movie theme song when it first came out but later on became a cult classic alongside the movie itself. People love that song and I can see why because it's literally just a catchy hook repeated over and over.

Jondalar 08-17-2018 05:15 PM

Holiday Road is a classic. It puts a smile on everyone’s face.

.

That’s for sure. It has to easily be his most recognizable solo song. Someone somewhere failed miserably marketing the song at least for Lindsey’s sake. The popularity of that song is not properly owned by Lindsey. Sure it mainly just goes hand in hand with the movie series, but there should have been a slightly better effort to push the fact that it was a Lindsey Buckingham Song.

I'll like Stevie again if she saves Misty Day. Misty can't be dissecting frogs for an eternity. She was too beautiful a soul to be doing that.
