Stevie may not be nearly at the level of legends like Cher or Dolly Parton, each with their own larger-than-life persona on top of their musical output, acting careers and commercial success, but the state of her persona-driven career is probably more appropriate to compare to people like them than to pure musicians such as other FM members.
no response to this? i thought there will be bunch of bashing and complaints. something usual for here and ridiculous like how Cher or Dolly greatness is nowhere near Stevie's.

Cher had a more complete career than Stevie. She’s a persona way beyond music and had a great film career. Stevie was the better songwriter and created a narrative about herself in a way that Cher couldn’t have done, but that’s only so much.

And Dolly? Neither of them can hold a candle to Dolly. Dolly might be one of America’s greatest talents ever. I watch Porter Wagoner on Fridays on RFD-TV just for the vintage Dolly. Stevie wishes she was Dolly. However, Dolly wasn’t in Fleetwood Mac.

The quote from “Love Shines” has always been in my signature.

The pic is new. Prior to that, it was a pic from the 1993 press conference without Stevie.
