A rundown or timeline of twitter Q & A's and postings starting February, 2010 between Dave Stewart and various Stevie Nicks fans with other notable mentions thrown in of their working together. All of this regarding a project that for all intents and purposes appears to be a Stevie Nicks solo album.
Without official word from either a record company, anyone from the Nicks camp or from Nicks herself this is all we have to go on up to this point. It looks promising that new music from Nicks is definitely on the way! Maybe in August she'll throw something out there at one of her shows to either confirm this or totally confuse the situation even further.
This has actually been kind of fun, being led along like this, it's like following bread crumbs! Gotta hand it to Dave, these past 5 months have definitely been interesting - waiting on the edge for the next minimum 140 character posting on twitter!
I think I've managed to collect all the postings regarding them working together. Feel free to correct or add to this in the comments section and I'll add it to the timeline.
