This weekend, Stevie Nicks continues her lengthy tour in support of her current album In Your Dreams with a string of dates in Australia. The dates kick off Saturday in Melbourne, and she'll wrap things up December 10 in Tasmania. For this round of dates, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, who co-produced In Your Dreams, will be joining Stevie, and she says she's had so much fun working with him that she'd love him to be involved in the next Fleetwood Mac album as well.
"[Dave's] one of those people that walks in the room and he doesn't even have to say anything and you start laughing," Stevie tells ABC News Radio. "He's just instantly funny. And, he gets up everyday and he looks at the world through the eyes of a child. And, it rubs off on you and you feel like a child. And, he has big dreams and he shoots for the stars...you start to become like that when you're around him, and that's where I want to be."
Someplace Stevie doesn't want to be, however, is in Las Vegas, doing a permanent residency, like Elton John, Celine Dion or her pal Rod Stewart, with whom she toured with earlier this year. Though she's now in her sixties, Stevie isn't interested in giving up her nomadic existence, staying in one place and letting the fans come to her. "I could never do that. Never. I could never stay in one place like that," she tells ABC News Radio. "I think that for somebody like Rod Stewart, who has eight children and a brand new baby I think that this is fantastic. Celine Dion, you know, she wanted to raise her babies and not be traveling all over the world."
Stevie notes that her situation is vastly different from that of Rod, Celine or even Elton -- she's not married and she's not a parent. "I don't have that. I have a dog," she notes. "So I would never be able to stay in the one place and be in the same dressing room every night and have the same audience. I couldn't do it."
