The Edge of Seventeen….
I discovered this recently at the age of 47 whilst watching School of Rock with my kids. I find it amazing.
What other Stevie Nicks material should I be seeking out?Posted 10 months ago
My memory of that song was GTA IV, driving around to a sunrise with that on.
Here’s a recent song (off the Sound City – Reel to Reel album produced by Dave Grohl)
Also, Fleetwood Mac, she was the lead singer.Posted 10 months ago
Nice. I’m aware shes the lead singer of Fleetwood Mac so will spend some time going back…Posted 10 months ago
I don’t know much of her solo work outside of Fleetwood Mac, but I still listen to this one I vaguely recall hearing on MTV in the 80s…Posted 10 months ago
Watch the Defiant Ones
There’s a bit of Stevie in that https://www.netflix.com/gb/title/80214552?preventIntent=truePosted 10 months ago
I’d never heard of it before school of rock, despite being a fleetwood mac fan.Posted 10 months ago
She’s a great singer.
You should start with Buckingham/Nicks, the album Stevie and Lindsay were recording at the same time Fleetwood Mac were looking for a way forward, and it got them the job with Fleetwood Mac. It’s been unavailable for many years, I bought a vinyl copy in the late 70’s/early 80’s, only to find it was warped, took it back and the album had been deleted!Posted 10 months ago
A remastered CD with a second CD of outakes and non-album tracks has been released this year, and is really worth having.
As far as Stevie’s solo albums are concerned, I’ve got Bella Donna, Rock A Little and The Wild Heart – Bella Donna has Edge Of Seventeen, Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around, a duet with Tom Petty, and a bunch of other good songs, the other two are pretty decent too.
She’s a great singer, and a great performer too.
And likes cocaine blown up her bum before going on stage (allegedly).Posted 10 months ago
She always wanted to be a member of the Hearbreakers (Petty’s band) but apparently it was very much a blokes only setup. Petty wrote Stop Draggin’ for her and there’s some great footage on that there YouTube thing of her performing it with Petty. I always had a soft spot for Silver Springs which was supposed to be on Rumours but Buckingham blocked it, so it ended as the B side to Go Your Own Way. Excellent live versions are on YouTube however.Posted 10 months ago
Oh and hi to CountZero; trust you’ve got past being accused (along with the rest of us oldies) of being a “stern faced CIS male McStan” on Instagram by Ms McKee!!
And was lifted for the “Bootylicious” track by Destiny’s Child/Beyoncé nearly 20yrs ago; both great tracks.Posted 10 months ago
Did Nicks and Buckingham join Fleetwood Mac or did Fleetwood Mac join Nicks and Buckingham?
The latter is my thinking.Posted 10 months ago
She’s still doing it and very well.
I really didn’t like Fleetwood Mac for most of my life and then one day heard a song playing on a young colleague’s bluetooth speaker. I asked them what it was and it was this
Captivating. And the music is so stripped back, and the drumming so ‘in the pocket’. It’s just perfection. As is her voice. She does looks ripped to the toots in that performance to be fair 😉
You should probably check out some other classics such as Rhiannon, Landslide, Gypsy etcPosted 10 months ago
I seem to remember a very nice photo on the cover of the Nick’s/Buckingham album.Posted 10 months ago
May not be considered “safe for work” these days….
