Stevie Nicks Mention: Anita Baker Receives Crescent Moon

Anita Baker's latest CD to blend old, new | detnews.com | The Detroit News:

"Playing a show together with Stevie Nicks last year was a chance to commune with another of her favorites.

'I have this necklace Stevie gave me, a crescent moon; she took it off the neck of one of her girlfriends.' Baker imitates that scratchy, leather and lace voice: 'She said, 'I give these to all the ladies who inspire me.' Again, in the Joni Mitchell vein, she's an amazing writer and storyteller in her own way, her own voice, her own style.'

Baker's own penchant for wearing full skirts in concert, 'That's me trying to imitate Stevie.'"

When the hell did Stevie and Anita do a show together? I assume it was some benefit thing, but it still doesn't ring a bell.

She may have had the years mixed.. Didn't Stevie play that new casino in Detroit in '08. That's Anita's home town I believe and I recall her being on the bill for a night or two... not like and opening act or anything for Stevie, but a separate night from Stevie.

That was really nice of Anita. She sounds nice.

It's terrible that Stevie took the necklace from her friend and gave it to Anita. That's kind of mean.....
