I once went to a Stevie Nicks concert and at the end she did a cover of a Tom Petty song. Granted, I like both Stevie and Petty but I didn’t sit there and think “OMG how horrible! Stevie Nix is singing other people’s stuff!” I actually thought it was pretty cool. Maybe it’s because I’m not a singer but I really don’t see much difference between what I saw at that concert and seeing the same thing on Guitar Hero.

Default Front Line Aquires Stake In DS Management

September 17, 2009

Front Line Management has acquired an interest in DS Management, the company helmed by Denise Stiff. From its Nashville headquaters, DS Management represents Alison Krauss and Union Station, Dan Tyminski and Alyssa Bonagura.

Stiff has managed Krauss for 23 years, during a career that has earned the performer 26 Grammys, the most of any female artist in Grammy history. Stiff also served as Executive Music Producer for the 2000 film O Brother, Where Art Thou, as well as concert producer for the related Down from the Mountain tour and accompanying CD/DVD.

Irving Azoff and Howard Kaufman founded powerhouse management company Front Line in 2004. Its roster of about 200 clients includes the Eagles, Jimmy Buffett, Neil Diamond, Fleetwood Mac, Christina Aguilera, Stevie Nicks, and Aerosmith.

Bella Donna (1981)
Stevie Nicks

In between the sessions for Fleetwood Mac’s third album, Stevie Nicks began writing and recording demos for what would become her breakthrough debut solo project, Bella Donna. The album reached number one, with singles like “Edge Of Seventeen” and “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” helping to propel the disc to the top spot — and, in the process, proving that Stevie was a marketable solo star in her own right. Like much of what she wrote for Fleetwood Mac, Bella Donna’s collection of folk-influence rock song succeed largely thanks to Stevie’s poignant and reflective lyrics. For sure, the singles are strong. But the undiscovered gems like the title track and “The Highwayman” are what make the album worth listening to again and again. On the latter, she mournfully sings, “Alas he was the highwayman, the one that comes and goes. And only the highway-woman keeps up with the likes of those.” Stevie may be a rock artist, but her narrative songwriting (a style mostly associated with country music) is what sets her apart and makes Bella Donna her masterpiece.

Default the dummy that wrote this...

Holiday performs Magnetic Arrest before Stockdale performs a brand new Wolfmother song, New Moon Rising for the very first time in a live setting.

Both close the show with a stunning version of the Stevie Nicks/Glenn Frey song, Leather and Lace.

• Mom and I on bike (7 months again and a victim of 1977 fashion) in Stevie Nicks-style matching ponchos that were undoubtedly a hazard near spinning spokes. But, what the hey? We looked GOOD.

Take for example Bjanka Adzic Ursulov’s costumes, which mix postmodern MTV with vintage wear. The 12-person chorus is decked out like backup dancers at a Janet Jackson concert, lacking only conspicuous head microphones to make it seem as if they’re intoning lines from Euripides’ classic album “Rhythm Nation 431 BC.”

Bening, on the other hand, dolled up like a fancy 19th century witch, occasionally invokes Stevie Nicks with a wounded expression and traumatized shock of short-cropped hair.

Should I mention the Britney Spears-like cameo of Kreon’s daughter, a vitally important character who doesn’t actually appear in Euripides’ original?

For those who aren’t sitting in the dentist’s chair—you probably would like it. The Sowashes sound like a chilled-out, Asperger’s syndrome-laden version of the Hold Steady, with a tiny bit of alt-country mixed in for good measure.

“We all kind of like music from 15 years ago,” the frontman said, adding, “We’re not blog rock.”

Trying to describe his approach to writing, Sowash said his songs “usually wind up being about mundane things in my life. I usually try to bring out the funny in them.”

His songwriting advice, in a nutshell: “Write what you know, like being infatuated with Stevie Nicks at a young age.”

Lemonhead Recommends - Stevie Nicks

Stevie Nicks has been my idol for as long as I can remember, everything about her is magical and drenched in depth. She always maintains beauty and strength simultaneously.
Many of Stevie’s best works are her demos; take ‘Blue Lamp’ (also my favourite Stevie Nicks song) for example. Supposedly based on a blue tiffinany lamp her mother bought her and she refused to board a plane without, the lyrics portray something entirely different “Can we talk. I’ve known you for a long time. Now you know.”




Equally gut wrenching and dramatic is her demo of ‘Smile At You (angry demo)’.
“Go on save yourself, leave the key here, you love someone else, I shouldn’t be here”. The lyrics, unquestionably based on Stevie’s own heartache can reach a thousand souls and never cease to stir emotion within me, the most devastating part being towards the close of the song when Stevie declares in utter raw trauma “My heart, my heart, was broken, my heart, my heart was broken”.
Truly glorious, beautiful and filled with soul, as with all Stevie Nicks songs, she remains now and forever more my idol.

I came to the understanding that i'm such a spaz, and so hooping makes way more sense for me. Anyways I feel in love with tribal belly dance/hula hoop clothing, so I just stated making my own clothes. My fantasy world would have a happy hour in which Laura Angles, Stevie Nicks, Nico, Mae West, Calamity Jane, and myself meet up at least once a week in some out of the way place to have lemon balm juleps and discuss, well, everything.

Excerpt from an article about information overload in The Mountain Press (TN) October 12, 2009

http://mountainpress.uber.matchbin.n...e=main_article

Are we living on information overload?

by ELLEN BROWN

There’s a quote from Stevie Nicks (former lead singer of Fleetwood Mac) in a recent Rolling Stone magazine interview that I thought was rather profound: “Little girls think it’s necessary to put all their business on MySpace and Facebook, and I think it’s a shame. ... I’m all about mystery.”

Oh, Stevie, you are so wise. You were so cool back in the 1970s, rocking out with your awesome band. You were too busy making great music to worry about what other people were doing.

You were also living in a time before we all discovered perhaps the greatest invention ever: the Internet.

Fourteen years ago yesterday, Phish played perhaps their finest show in Arizona at the now defunct Compton Terrace. Phoenix’s Compton Terrace was created by Jess Nicks - Stevie’s father - on land borrowed from the adjacent Legend City, a wild-west themed amusement park. After Legend City closed, Nicks moved the venue to another site which is where the Phish concert took place shortly before the venue closed for good in 1996.
