Default Nicks McNuggets

Interviewing fellow musicians on Bio Channel's must-see "The Chris Isaak Hour," the singer-songwriter revealed another exceptional skill. His chats with such artists as Stevie Nicks, Cat Stevens, Smashing Pumpkins, Glen Campbell and Chicago unearth fresh insights into each performer.

"They can tell that I really love music and respect what they do," Isaak said. "We made a point of going a little farther than the usual 'Who are you dating?' and 'When is your new album out?' questions.

"The one thing all my guests had in common beside amazing talent was that they all overcame obstacles to get to the top and make their music. You think of Stevie Nicks as just being born a gorgeous rock star with a platinum record. But she was somebody's hotel maid at one point."

Dudek's solo work yielded a couple of FM radio hits, "City Magic" and "Old Judge Jones." But problems bogged down his career.

Columbia teamed Dudek with label mates Mike Finnigan and Jim Krueger for a "DFK" tour, then an album. Then Cher asked Dudek to play on her "Black Rose" album.

"It was a pretty decent rock 'n' roll album," he said. "But Neil Bogart, owner of the record company, Casablanca, died right after we put it out. That sealed its fate. The push behind it stopped. Cher swept it under the rug after that."

Dudek lived with Cher for three years. "We were in the shower one day and she says, 'What do you think we're doing together, Les?' I said, 'We're just two lonely people hanging out with each other until something better comes along.' She goes, 'Good answer!'"

After they split up, Cher helped him land a role in "Mask."

Other opportunities popped up, but the timing was never right. "Anytime a guitar player dies, they call me. When the guy from Chicago blew his head off, who gets the call? Les Dudek. When Lowell George died, who got the call? Yeah, I could have been in Little Feat, too.

"It would have been really neat playing for Chicago, though I hear it's kind of a boring gig. But Little Feat, that would have been fun."

In 1988, during another lull, Dudek contemplated becoming a sheriff. "Then I got yanked back into the business by John Kay of Steppenwolf. He wanted me to go on tour with him, which ended up being a big fiasco.

"There were times when I just felt like, 'To hell with it.' But something always pulled me back. Stevie Nicks pulled me back in. I ended up writing some songs with her. I did a tour with her in '91. That was short-lived. I broke my arm. I was riding a Harley between rehearsals and a cab pulled out in front of me."

Over the next six years, Dudek released four solo albums, scoring radio hits with “City Magic” and “Old Judge Jones.” There was a 20-year hiatus between Dudek’s 1981’s “Gypsy Ride” and the 2001 album “Deeper Shades of Blues.”

Cher asked Dudek to participate on a recording project, which would become the “Black Rose” album. In 1984, he appeared with the singer and wrote a few songs for the movie “Mask.”

Dudek teamed up with Stevie Nicks for two songs, “Sister Honey” and “Freestyle,” the title track to his 2003 CD.

Wow, that reminds me of something Sonny said about his marriage to Suzie Coelho. He said they were just waiting around for something exciting to happen.

I really don't like the way all the stories I've been reading for so long are ending these days.

This is an excerpt from the St. Louis Jewish Light article about an upcoming Sidewalk Sale:

http://www.stljewishlight.com/news/295235821906663.php

Years ago I bought a dress at a benefit sale that I was told once belonged to Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks. I never knew if this was true, but every time I wore the dress I felt like a rock star and found myself inexplicably humming "Rhiannon."

I mention this because on Thursday, Aug. 27, from 10 a.m. to noon, the "Best Dressed Sidewalk Sale" will take place at Valerie Mills Boutique, 131 Carondelet Plaza, in Clayton. All proceeds from the sale — as well as 10 percent of purchases that day of Valerie Mills merchandise — will benefit the Legal Advocates of Abused Women.

Default Stevie Nicks: I love Britney

Sunday, August 23, 2009

Stevie Nicks an American singer-songwriter, best known for her work with Fleetwood Mac, said some pretty nice things about Britney.

The 61yr old artist says, Britney Spears has her full support.

"I love Britney and I want the best for her," Nicks said. "She has got her life back and she has two boys who need her.

"But Britney has her body back, her beauty back and, hopefully, she will get her power back."

Awe, that was so nice of her.

Sunday - I met up with a high school buddy of mine in Burbank, and we went to a cool little restaurant/bar called Fiamme (in Thousand Oaks) to see Jana Anderson and Sharon Celani perform. These two women are backup singers for Stevie Nicks, and they were nice enough to chat with us after the show and take a couple of pictures.

Grab a Stetson and your autograph pad: The AZ Music & Entertainment Hall Of Fame is holding a benefit concert on September 6 at Handlebar J in Scottsdale, a great little honky-tonky type bar just north Shea and Scottsdale Roads.

Heard of the institution we lovingly know by it's overly-complex acronym, AZM&EHOF? Turns out it's inducted legends like Alice Cooper, Glen Campbell, Steven Spielberg, Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstadt, Waylon Jennings, and Buck Owens, all of which spent at least some time in our state.

They're not planning another induction until fall 2010 (when, with any luck, someone else in Arizona will get appropriately famous -- otherwise it's you, Shawn Michaels) but in the meantime they're hoping to raise some cash with a concert featuring inductees like Jerry Riopelle, Jessi Colter, The Herndon Brothers, and about a dozen other acts. Doors open at 4 p.m. Show starts at 5 p.m. Suggested donation is $20.

Default Megan Joy Is Sparking Filmmakers’ Interest

Though she made her mark on the world’s most-watched singing competition, American Idol’s Megan Joy may not be headed for the recording studio, but rather the silver screen.

The sultry, single mom with the sexy voice caught everyone’s attention during Idol’s eighth season. Immediately after her departure from the show, the internet was ablaze with the rumor that Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks had noticed Megan and wanted to anoint her to play her part in an upcoming biopic about the supergroup. (Nicks, the week before, made her thoughts crystal clear on Lindsay Lohan’s interest in the role. “Over my dead body,” the one-time queen of rock said of Lohan’s possible involvement.)

Stevie Nicks, though, isn’t the only one who has noticed Megan Joy. “From what I’ve seen, Megan doesn’t have a bad angle,” says Phoenix, Arizona indie filmmaker Jane Bell. “We’d love to work with her. I’d go so far as to say we would develop a project with her in mind. She’s stunning.”

“It’s funny. I’d never watched Idol until this season,” Bell said. “A friend called me and said ‘you’ve got to see this girl.’ As soon as we began watching her, we were hooked. So many possibilities there.”

Regarding Megan’s sleeve tattoo, Bell responded, ”To get her going in something like a festival short, we’d write the tattoo into the story, just to get her in a film, so she could get her acting feet wet. She simply has too much presence, almost a Grace Kelly kind of thing. You can’t help but gape at her.”

“We’ve tried to contact Megan,” Bell continued, “through one of her fan websites that stated they had a direct line to her, but to no avail. I know she has a myspace now. So we’ll wait until she’s off the tour, and depending on what happens with the Fleetwood Mac thing, we’ll try to get together with her in the fall. But, who knows, we might be competing with Cover Girl and L’Oreal, she’s that good-looking.”

That is awesome! I <3 Sharona! She's made such a huge contribution to Stevie's career and is a star in her own wright. Ironically I had a dream last night that she died and I snuck into her funeral because Stevie was performing. Weird!!!

Default This is for you, Ruth

Having thoroughly stained England at last week’s NME Awards, Courtney Love has zipped down to Milan for Fashion Week, where she displayed might be her new trademark—garish headwear! Love sported a heavy bejeweled headband at the Vogue.it show Friday, green peacock plumage at last night’s Robert Cavalli show and the black seaweed above at the afterparty. If you ever wondered what Stevie Nicks’s corpse would look like slowly rising out of Crystal Lake in the world’s worst Friday The 13th remake, now you know.

Excerpt from an interview with Stevie Dance
http://fashiongonerogue.com/stevie-d...fgr-exclusive/

The name Stevie–is it inspired by Stevie Nicks or is there another story behind it?
My parents love music. Fleetwood Mac was big deal to them.

Default "Call Me Stevie: Memoirs of A Duplicate"

Wow.

She said Judd sent her at least 35 pounds of threatening mail and stalked her. She said he thought at one point that she was a clone of Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks. She said Judd thought he had to kill her to bring back the real person she should be.

"He would scream, 'Karen Corey-Steele, Stevie Nicks, whoever the hell you are,'" Corey-Daniels said, referring to her previous married name.

"And he thought I really wasn't me, that Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood had paid to have me made so she could come down between concert dates and run my home improvement company."

Default Stevie Nicks Passes on Wisdom to @KatyPerry Over Tea in London

Katy Perry talking with SiriusXM about inspirations for her new album was asked "who's the most bizarre friend you've made friends with along the way that we wouldn't expect". And Katy speaks about having just become friends with Stevie and just had tea with her in London and tells how Stevie's very kind and a sweet woman and that she passed on little nuggets of wisdom and Katy says she "sees straight right through my soul". Katy feels honoured that Stevie would take the time for her and that she loves hearing from artists who have gone before her.

Go Stevie!

http://


You may recall a few years ago while Stevie was doing press that she (somewhat) reached out to Katy. When asked during interviews who she would like to work with, Stevie indicated Katy.

Next thing we know... Stevie's doing the voice over for the teaser trailer for one of Katy's singles "The One That Got Away". Stevie indicated around the time the song made her cry saying it reminded her of "my own life and losses, and of the last fight that Lindsey Buckingham and I had".

I so love Katy Perry, she has a beautiful voice and seems like such a sweetheart.
