Stevie Nicks talked about recently losing her mother, whom she still "calls on" for advice

Senior Squeals: If you think 64-year-old mystical songstress Stevie Nicks has seen better days, you weren't at the full house for her documentary In Your Dreams, during which viewers - many of whom we're guessing have grandchildren - were bouncing out of their seats and shrieking the way they did for Elvis decades ago. MVFF audiences are considered fairly sophisticated, but they turned on their bygone juices when Nicks stepped from her limo onto the red carpet in front of the Rafael Film Center. For those of you soooo young you think Fleetwood Mac is a Cadillac with a computer, the onetime Menlo-Atherton High School and San Jose State University student has collectively produced more than 40 Top 50 hits, sold more than 140 million albums, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. Chatting openly and at a mile-a-minute with strangers after the film, she talked about recently losing her mother, whom she still "calls on" for advice, about leading (by choice) a rather cloistered life, and about her battles to overcome cocaine addiction and dependency on tranquilizers. She confessed to having "the best time in rehab—because it's real" and said it is a lot more challenging to get up in front of 10,000 people when you're sober. Yeah. We can identify with that...

Is that the entire article? It ends with a "..." as if there should be a link to the rest of the article or an interview with Stevie. And what's with that last sentence? Is that sarcasm? I honestly can't tell.

I agree with the last poster. "Yeah. We can identify with that..." was an odd way to conclude the article.

Oops, spoke too soon. There is no additional content regarding Stevie. It's a "snippets of thoughts" style article. Each section ends with that "..." device.

Is there ANY video from her Mill Valley Q and A session???? I want to hear this from Stevie's own mouth!

Actually, I don't think the ending sarcastic at all. When I read it I right away thought...oh the author can relate to the difficulty of living sober rather than with an addiction, and it's not easy and he knows it!
