She's such a numbers person, I think she's too embarrassed for a project to sell only 30k copies.

She's got to be winding it up, and nobody buys records, and she's never been wrong.
so this got me thinking -- COVID had to have given her a small sort of taste of what 'retirement' will be like i.e., no more life on the road and all that. It really seemed to freak her out... but maybe that was because she couldn't replace touring with a substitute i.e., personal travel. We know she hates staying in one place too long. But COVID would have given her a taste of what it's like to not be creating and/or performing any more..... wondering how that went over....

What's sad is that it's the only life she knows.

I wonder why she chose I Sing for the Things, Fall From Grace, and Sara only.

Whole Lotta Trouble, No Spoken Word, and Juliet would be great replacements for Free Fallin', For What It's Worth, and Stop Draggin' My Heart Around.

Is she singing "can't buy me"? In the Las Vegas show video I watched, I didn't hear "can't buy me"

It was recorded by 'Midnight' at Hyde Park and uploaded to YouTube - 'Stevie Nicks Nation'

I just wish that guy wasn't, talking, so loud.

Stevie didn't sing And So It Goes with Billy in Nashville. Sheryl Crow sang Landslide with her. After Landslide Stevie said Sheryl was very close to becoming the only female other than Christine and Stevie to join "one of the most famous bands in the world" and thanked her for almost doing that.

In my mind they would not have made new music with Sheryl had she been permitted to join. It would have been Sheryl just singing Christine's songs in Fleetwood Mac.

I want to think she meant joining a band with already one female singer in its lineup, so becoming 2 girls in the band again. Otherwise Bekka would be Sue Storm.

Wait! In terms of studio albums, not tours, Time got two female singers. So Bekka is the Invisible Woman to Stevie?

The fact is Stevie has a terrible memory. She also said to Sheryl in Nashville that she hadn't sung Landslide with her in 13 years; they sang it together 3 years ago in 2019 at the Ace Hotel Theatre along with Sheryl's Prove You Wrong with Waddy and Steve Jordan.

LOL how ironic. You've got pictures of Christine in the background as you're singing Landslide and then thanking Sheryl for nearly signing on as Christine's replacement. Were the fake tears on display too?

I heard her say "buy me" in a clip I watched. I guess she wanted the narcissism to be extra clear.

That is kind of weird, but I think its inadvertent. If I thought Stevie had the ability to manage all these criss-crossing trains of thought, Id be unnerved by this one. But this has got to be just torrential expressions of all her emotions and memories scrambled up in her egg beater brain and then shared without filters for the crowd.

I agree. As weird as it is, it probably wasn't intentional at all.
