I'd tell Bob Dylan that $tevie eats a sack of White Castles and a 40 of malt liquor, and can run you out of the house.

lol that right there tells you all about how revisionist her stories are!

she makes up Lindsey's reaction and follow up, completely opposite from what it actually was. like she doesn't get there is actual video of that conversation.

She's an IDIOT. The truly amazing thing in her life is that she went as far as she did, on a teaspoon of brains.

I just skimmed the article but this part was hysterical! What voice?? It's completely shot. I think the world would be better off at this point if she opened her mouth and nothing did come out.

Here’s How Stevie Nicks Has Saved Her Voice for the Past 20 Years

Published onNovember 17, 2021
Stevie Nicks is nothing without her voice. She’s been singing for almost her whole life. Nicks has been singing her heart out ever since her grandfather taught her to harmonize at age five. However, when Nicks entered Fleetwood Mac in the mid-1970s, she didn’t always protect her voice.

She screamed and yelled on stage and wore out her voice until she was hoarse. Back then, there were no vocal coaches or techniques to protect your voice or make it last for future decades. Rock stars sang all kinds of songs that made their vocal cords bleed.

Thankfully, though, Nicks eventually realized she needed to save her voice before it was too late. Otherwise, she’d wear it down to the point that no sound came out.

I just find it funny that she thinks she writes songs. She writes lyrics with a melody and gives them to someone else. She co-wrote almost everything with Lindsey.

2 things:

She should get a refund on that vocal coach from 1997 because that is when she sounded flat.

I totally see how she said she was selfish about songwriting in the beginning because she wrote great songs and did not need help and wanted to contribute something her own. However dear Stevie.......once the drugs took over all you did was co-write or was given someone else's songs to sing.

She's written some really great songs, no doubt about that....

But she's really benefited from all of the folks she's worked with to actually take those poems and mold them into a song.

She has this tendency to imply that her songs on the record came out exactly as she wrote them in her journals, which I think is massively misleading and inaccurate. There's a certain amount of process that goes into crafting them into songs (and editing that goes with it) and she consistently likes to gloss over it and tell the world she did it on her own instead (much like she does for almost everything)

The version of Sara on the record, isn't the same one she walked in with on day 1 in the studio. It was trimmed down from 16 minutes etc. She had working sessions with Tom Moncrief in addition to all of the work Lindsey and the band put into the song.

I even struggle with melody...Does cycling through the same 3 chords of a song at the same pace really count as a melody? She definitely dips her toe into how she wants certain things phrased, but full-on melody I sometimes doubt.

Buddy Holly knew how to take three chords and actually loop them into a hooky song with an actual structure of a verse, chorus, and bridge. She never progressed to that point. I think Lindsey could see it and made it happen on songs like Dreams.

I haven’t read all of this.
Just sort of skimmed.
But it’s not a new interview, is it?
Isn’t it old interviews culled and cobbled together…

So it tells nothing new,
there is nothing new to tell.
I just like her songs….I don’t care if she had help to produce them.
God, the Beatles had George Martin.

I may not like the person she has become, but I sure like her songs.
(And Lindsey’s and Christine’s)

You’re correct: it’s not a new single interview, but a cobbling together of old statements that have been mashed together for a puff piece. I have been reading a number of these lately, all relating to Stevie in Fleetwood Mac. My guess is that they’ve been released by the same person/persons and that the writer/writers are working in tandem with Nick’s publicity machine. She’s hard at work ensuring immediately accessible documents reflect her version of the band history.
