Stevie has been involved with erase MS for awhile. Don Henley's wife has MS and I think Don got Stevie involved in the cause many years ago.

Still I believe.....BACKSTABBING AND BETRAYAL will show us how

Flashback: Behind the scenes with Sheryl Crow & Stevie Nicks

This photo shows a small part of the walls and ceiling in the room where a Stevie Nicks / Sheryl Crow music video was being filmed.
Oddly enough there were only vague ideas for what was to be painted on the walls but nothing specific or approved. I had a notebook with about 20 pages of song lyrics but no additional data, so at last when I had no other options I just painted on the lyrics that I liked the most. (I painted all the graphics on 5 major walls in 3 hours, extremely fast.)
Stevie and Sheryl were around, in makeup or rehearsing and I finished painting everything at about 2 AM. At one point when Sheryl was taking a nap on the couch, Stevie came up to me and in a slightly serious manner asked me who had picked out the painted lyrics. Man, was I up against the wall. So I just told her the truth, that it was ME. She replied, “Those are my favorite lyrics too,” with a great smile. Boy was I relieved.

Stevie Nicks’ Former New York Crash Pad Is Back
By Morgan Halberg • 04/27/18 5:00pm

Stevie Nicks and John Elway both stayed in this apartment. Douglas Elliman
Stevie Nicks is preparing to go on a massive tour with Fleetwood Mac this fall when they visit over 50 cities in the United States. When she stops in New York next March, though, Nicks is going to have to rethink where she’ll be staying.
Nicks has reportedly crashed at a sleek three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom apartment at the Jean Nouvel-designed 100 Eleventh Avenue, but the home is now back on the sales market. It seems the current owner, Larry Mueller, is determined to part with the 2,674-square-foot abode.

He’s relisted the apartment, located on the 19th floor, for $7.95 million, but he once had far more ambitious expectations for the West Chelsea home—it was asking $10.6 million in April 2016. Coincidentally, Observer checked out this exact unit back when it had the higher price tag and Corcoran was attached as the brokerage. Alas, there was no mention of a tie to Nicks at the time, so perhaps it was more of a secret then—or maybe she didn’t start staying here until the past year.
Aside from Nicks, former NFL quarterback and current Denver Broncos general manager John Elway also used to stay at this apartment, according to the New York Post. It just so happens to be on the same floor as Kelsey Grammer’s onetime residence in the building.

The apartment hasn’t changed much since Observer last saw it, at least not per the listing photos, though there has been a switch to Douglas Elliman brokers Andre Rouach and Raphael De Niro. The floor-to-ceiling windows are one of the most attractive parts of the apartment; the views of the Hudson River are striking.
There are terrazzo floors and 11-foot ceilings throughout, and the great room is equipped with a sparkling black-accented fireplace, which we were previously told was redone by the owner’s designer, Cheryl Lucas, from its original white color.
The kitchen’s stainless steel finish is offset by the glassy eating areas and breakfast bar. And it seems as if the seller is into vino, as there are two separate wine refrigerators. Each of the bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom, while the master features a walk-in closet and a bathroom with a separate stall shower and custom bathtub.

We must say, though, the sharp, modern lines of this apartment don’t exactly scream Stevie Nicks—it seems little too slick, so we’re going to assume she used this as temporary lodgings. Alas, Nicks resides in Los Angeles full-time, where she owns at least two homes, and we don’t really see her as a potential buyer for the place.
In other Fleetwood Mac news, John McVie recently parted with his Hawaii retreat, as he’s making the move back to Brentwood. Hopefully, it won’t be too awkward if he runs into recently ousted former band member Lindsey Buckingham.

PREMIERE: The Shantics Release New Single “Stevie Nicks”

Following the release of their infectious single, Mind Pop, London boys The Shantics are keen to keep building momentum and release their next single, Stevie Nicks; a thrillingly riff-based, fast-paced indie banger.
Stevie Nicks is a song written about a strangely positive encounter they had with a wanted criminal who sold them their PA System. Some of the lyrics are almost direct quotes from their conversations with him. Of course, they didn’t know he was a thief at the time of buying the PA but found out after and felt compelled to write a song about their experience. “We wanted to make sure the song’s lyrical concept matched with the vibe of the music. The guitar riff was written to emulate footsteps to sound like a robber creeping around at night and the slightly discordant feel represents our mixed emotions towards him.”
The way that The Shantics came together could be translated into a modern-day band love story. It seems that the universe knew long before them that they were meant to play together; it just took a few near misses and little nudges to assure it.
At the centre, are two brothers; Jimmy and Harry Morris, who grew up in a musical household, learning guitar from the age of four. Add in drummer Mike Cosburn, and Jacob Nation the band’s bass player and you have the quintessential four-piece rock band that has a knack for crafting infectious songs, big in personality.
Determined to never become background noise, The Shantics teamed up with multi-platinum producer, Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, James Bay, The Libertines), and signed to his record label Goldun Egg Records.
The inner child in them enthuses the big dream of making music, the inner musician in them dedicates everything to making noise, the inner writer in them seeks inspiration from the little parts of every day, and the inner brother in them supports every move.

Tom Petty's Former Encino Home Lists for $5 Million

Petty called the house on Encino Way his home for more than two decades.
When renovating the former home of a rock legend like Tom Petty, one is likely to encounter some peculiar amenities. The house on Encino Way, which Petty called home for more than two decades and which is now back on the market for $5 million, did not disappoint.

"There is still a secret ladder that connected the costume room to the master suite," says Jenna Mattison, who recently completed an 11-month overhaul of the 11,483-square-foot home. The exact reason for the ladder is unknown, but rumor has it that Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks would hole up in the costume area for brief stints.

"Every inch of that house had to be reinvented and redesigned. It wasn't a disaster in that it was dilapidated, but it was definitely rock star bizarre," says Mattison, a film director who has a side hustle flipping homes. Mattison, along with her partner Donald Woolhouse, purchased the home out of foreclosure last year for $2.6 million and when they first walked in were struck by the leopard skin carpets and neon-blue tiling. "You definitely knew someone very eccentric had lived there."

It's impossible to tell from the staging photos, but the six-bedroom, 10-bathroom home that includes a special guest quarters survived everything from an arson attack, a foreclosure and a SWAT team invasion. And those are just the things that we know about.

Early one morning in 1987, Petty and his family were eating breakfast when an arsonist lit the wooden staircase on fire. Almost everything burned down except for the basement recording studio. The house was promptly rebuilt in a style that resembled a mountain cabin.

Petty's first wife, Jane Benyo, acquired the home in their 1996 divorce settlement. JPMorgan Chase would later foreclose on the home, but before it did, the property was reportedly rented out to a party planner who held a series of raucous parties there, which drew the ire of local neighbors. When the bank took possession of the home, a SWAT team was required to evict the tenant, who had refused to leave the premises and threatened the authorities.

The home sits on an enormous 38,000-square-foot lot and has a swimming pool and waterfall along with ample outdoor space and a nine-car garage.

"It's a really unique home, and you have to be a bit of a genius to get it," says Mattison. "It won't be for the average family with a Volvo in the garage. The person buying this house is probably going to be a creative type."

The home is being listed by The Agency's Craig Knizek and Ninkey Dalton, and for the those curious about a little slice of L.A. rock and roll history, the open house starts on Saturday.

Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders wants you to put your **** phone away at live shows

Q: The Pretenders have an upcoming gig at Wrigley Field in Chicago opening for Journey and Def Leppard. Are you surprised to find yourself on the same bill as Journey?

A: I don’t know much about them, so I’m not surprised. I also just toured South America with Phil Collins. That was a surprise. I did a couple of tours with Stevie Nicks, also a surprise. I’ve been on the bill with all sorts of odd combinations. I’m not quite sure where I or anyone fits into it at the moment, because it’s a funny scene. It just feels like it’s wide open and anything goes.
