"Take it easy, Mr. Frey - as you fly - take it easy" - Stevie Nicks


Glenn Frey's passing on Monday, January 18th was a complete shock! I still find it hard to believe. At 67 he had so much life left to live. It's a tremendous loss to his family, friends and the millions of Eagles fans around the world.

Stevie posted on her website yesterday a short note. She's clearly devastated by the news.

Dave Stewart Memoir 'Sweet Dreams Are Made of This' details meeting Stevie Nicks in 1983

Eurythmics star Dave Stewart dishes on Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty and hit song 'Sweet Dreams' in new book

Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart tells Confidenti@l that his upcoming memoir “Sweet Dreams Are Made of This: A Life in Music” is full of revelations, one of which recalls a debauched trip to L.A. in 1983 when the Eurythmics topped the charts and he wound up on top of Stevie Nicks.

“We were number one in America and I met Stevie backstage when we played the Wiltern Theater and it was packed full of loads of singers and Los Angeles glitterati and I got whisked with Stevie back to her house to a party that she invited me to,” Stewart tells Confidenti@l. “But when I got there, there was no party, just an empty house. So I thought, ‘Well this is interesting.’ We wound up staying together.”

Things got even more interesting for Stewart a few days later when he wound up in a recording studio with Nicks and her ex-boyfriend, producer Jimmy Iovine.

“There was a great point at the piano where she and Jimmy were arguing at the piano and he said, ‘Don’t argue in front of my friend, you don’t even know him,’ and she said ‘What are you talking about? We slept together the other night.’”

Those sessions resulted in Stewart writing “Don’t Come Around Here No More,” which wound up being recorded by Tom Petty in 1985.

Stewart says that for better or worse, his four kids, aged 13 to 28, will probably learn a few things about their pop-star papa when his book hits shelves next month.

“I’ve pre-warned them,” he laughs, unsure of whether or not they’ll read his book. “I think at one point in their lives they probably will ... well, what can I say? What can I do, you know?”

Stewart also says his 1983 smash hit “Sweet Dreams,” which inspired his book title, has also become something he can’t control.

“There are hit records that do well in one country, but don’t do anything in other countries,” he said. “When you have a record that it’s a hit in every country, it becomes like (the song) ‘Happy Birthday.’ Wherever you go, it’s playing somewhere to this day. Someone in Korea is singing it in a karaoke bar while it’s on the sound system when you’re buying your groceries. And you get in the car and it’s on and some cover band is playing it somewhere. It’s a great thing.”

Charles Kelley and Stevie Nicks cover Tom Petty's "Southern Accents" on "Driver" Avail. Feb 5th


Charles Kelley Enlists Miranda Lambert, Stevie Nicks for Solo LP

Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley has set February 5th as the release date for his solo debut The Driver and has enlisted rock goddess Stevie Nicks and country superstar Miranda Lambert to ride along with him.

“Southern Accents” (feat. Stevie Nicks) (Tom Petty) – Petty’s original arrangement from his 1985 album of the same name doesn’t get shaken up much during Kelley’s cover. It’s still piano-driven, with a little percussion to add rhythm before things begin to swell. Nicks gets her own verse, in addition to singing alongside Kelley.

Full details on the album available at Rollingstone or Taste of Country

Tusk could be considered Fleetwood Mac's middle child that demanded more attention


The Return of Tusk: Fleetwood Mac's Exotic Classic Expands
By Mike Ragogna


When Fleetwood Mac's Tusk finally was unveiled to the masses back in 1979, it critically dropped like a white elephant. After releasing two of the best, almost flawless pop albums of the seventies--Rumours and Fleetwood Mac--folks expected the band's formula of non-stop, potential singles to remain intact. Instead, Tusk spread its sonic experimentation across two albums, its creative overlord, Lindsey Buckingham, having utilized virtually every studio toy at his disposal. Add to that USC's marching band drumline-ing across the focus single/title track with servings of un-Mac-like musical performances and song lengths, and you get Buckingham's musical vision/version of what a late-seventies album was supposed to be. Fleetwood Mad had arrived and considering the relationship breakdowns and band's highly-publicized drug culture, it was a miracle this previously-considered overthought, overwrought product made it to vinyl at all.
