Would Stevie Nicks have tried out for "The Voice"? WATCH VIDEO

Stevie Nicks performed onstage last night with Javier Colon before he was crowned the winner of “The Voice.”

The duo did a wonderful rendition of Stevie’s Fleetwood Mac hit “Landslide.” Check out the performance below. We caught up with Stevie after the show to find out if she would have tried out for a show like “The Voice” if it had existed when she was starting out.

“If I was by myself, or even if Lindsey (Buckingham) and I were by ourselves and we weren’t successful with getting a record deal and something like this came up…I would have had to drag him by the hair, but yes, absolutely, sure!”

Stevie also talked about if she thought Javier would win when they went on stage to perform and if she was a fan of the show.

Q&A Stevie Nicks on Inspiration, Collaboration, and Her New Dreams

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Since Stephanie Nicks became “Stevie” in 1973, the ethereal songstress has recorded 18 albums, been nominated for 17 Grammys, and had one of the music industry’s most notorious love affairs — with fellow Fleetwood Mac member, Lindsey Buckingham. Yet Nicks’ latest album, In My Dreams, released in May, marks the first time the singer/songwriter has worked with a collaborator in the songwriting process (even in Fleetwood Mac, Nicks and Buckingham wrote separately). Working closely with Dave Stewart of The Eurhythmics, Nicks has produced some of her most compelling work since Bella Donna; she seldom sings as vulnerably, and her voice still has the haunting rasp that’s classic Stevie. So I was disappointed when her tour was cancelled, due to pneumonia, just several days before her live show in New York. Still, Nicks spoke to Riff City from her Los Angeles home, where she recorded In My Dreams. Her smoky contralto was instantly recognizable — and in no need of auto-tune — as she offered her thoughts on the creative process, the new LP, and why she doesn’t plan to retire anytime soon.

Riff City: Congratulations on your album. It’s beautiful.

Stevie Nicks : Thank you.

RC: I was disappointed that you cancelled your East Coast tour. Tell me, Do you still enjoy touring?

SONG PREMIERE: Free Download New Single "Seeds We Sow" Lindsey Buckingham

Guitar legend and Fleetwood Mac member Lindsey Buckingham has worked with the best and brightest producers in the music industry, but for his upcoming sixth studio album 'Seeds We Sow,' he takes a more solitary approach, recording, writing and producing entirely on his own. And if the title track is any indication, Buckingham fans are in for a completely fresh sound.

Check out the widget below to download the single for the cheap price of an e-mail.

"This might be the best work I've ever done," the guitarist said in a press release. "I think it's an excellent representation of what I do. It shows a certain maturity and musicianship and I just feel like I have a lot of tools in my musical vocabulary from which to draw that are again the product of the choices I've made. It's on my own terms. This is very much from the inside out and I hope I never stop doing that."

Featuring only guitar and vocals, 'Seeds We Sow' employs a slight slapback echo on Buckingham's signature finger-picking style, making the guitar both percussive and melodic underneath his dark, whispering vocals.

Buckingham will be supporting his forthcoming album with a 31-city North American tour starting in September. 'Seeds We Sow' will be released Sept. 6 via Eagle Rock.

Review: Hard Rock Calling, Hyde Park, London Rated 3/5

Beguiling rock princess: Stevie Nicks 
Reviewed by Chris Mugan
Wednesday, 29 June 2011
The Independent

Despite Glastonbury's moves ever further mainstream, London's mud-free alternative remains distinctive. Who could imagine Somerset hosting a tent-full of fans crooning "Lifted" by Nineties soul-poppers Lighthouse Family?

Otherwise, the three-day Hard Rock Calling relies on stellar headliners with little strength in depth. On Friday evening a sizeable main-stage crowd ignore impending drizzle and James's more quixotic material to bellow "Sit Down". Kaiser Chiefs unite students and office workers with epic takes on "Ruby" and "Oh My God", while showing a more contemplative bent on their current album The Future Is Medieval. It is best served peppered with metallic heft, as on "Little Shocks" and "Long Way From Celebrating".

Elsewhere, The Kills hone their tense garage grind, before The Killers close the night. The next afternoon, Ray Davies, fresh from Meltdown, fronts a rollicking bar-room band. In good spirits, he reminds us of The Kinks' gritty edge with a little too much of the irascible choir master – "If you don't know it, learn it."

Unsurprisingly, given they boast last year's highest grossing tour, Bon Jovi are the weekend's most well-oiled machine. They are especially formidable with guitarist Richie Sambora back from a spell in rehab, though a near three-hour set reveals limits to their common man shtick: more recent tunes resemble knock-offs of earlier efforts, with "We Weren't Born To Follow" rehashing "It's My Life". Even worse is the eponymous Jon's reinvention of "Hallelujah" as a cock-rock ballad, possibly the worst version yet.

On a blazing Sunday, Adam Ant avoids controversy on his first outdoor set since Live Aid, though weak vocals and a goth-metal backing band handicap the hits. Stevie Nicks, by contrast, is still the beguiling rock princess on her first solo UK date for 20 years. Bar one number, her comeback album In Your Dreams is ditched in favour of injecting hard-won wisdom into older solo rockers and Fleetwood Mac standards.

Later, she joins headliner Rod Stewart for a tepid run through "Young Turks", leaving Ronnie Wood to cut through the supper club schmaltz on "Maggie May" and "Stay With Me". Rod has one eye on an upcoming Las Vegas residency, though such reliability pleases Hyde Park just as well.

The announcements were made by Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios.

She has written and performed such classic hits s “Landslide,” “Rhiannon,” “Edge of l7” and “Gold Dust Woman.” She is scheduled to begin a solo tour next month.

Twilight inspires new dream run for Stevie
The Sunday Telegraph Australia June 26, 2011

STEVIE Nicks is in a good mood. The international star of folk rock is celebrating the success of her first album for a decade and has just heard a stadium full of fans sing Happy Birthday to her.

‘‘ It was pretty amazing,’’ she says. ‘‘ Not the best singers in the world, but they put their hearts into it.’’

It’s a testament to Nicks’ popularity and that of her former band, Fleetwood Mac — resurgent in recent months after the TV show Glee dedicated an entire episode to their 1977 album, Rumours.

Back on form after a hiatus, the singer says she began writing her new album, In Your Dreams, after a show with Fleetwood Mac in Melbourne while touring in Australia.

She’d just watched New Moon — the second film in the Twilight series — and was so moved by the love affair between Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson), it inspired her.

Drawing parallels with her own doomed relationship with Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac, she wrote Moonlight, a track on the new album. She says: ‘‘ It really touched me, because that kind of thing happened to me once and it was just so devastating.’’

When the band arrived in Brisbane there was a piano in her suite and In Your Dreams was born. She explains: ‘‘ It’s just that forbidden love . . . love that cannot work — no matter what. Edward is beautiful and sensitive and sweet, but he’s still a monster. That’s the main underlying story in all fairy tales.

‘‘ But sometimes it happens to you in real life and when it does, it’s devastating.’’

Nicks met Buckingham in San Francisco when she was 17. The couple joined Fleetwood Mac, which ultimately sounded the death knell for their relationship.

They split while making Rumours, and Nicks says the turmoil she went through is what makes her identify with Bella and Edward.

Later she sang with his band, Fritz, before the pair moved to Los Angeles and performed as Buckingham-Nicks, living and recording together for five years.

‘‘ That’s when we realised we had a destiny, I think,’’ Nicks says. ‘‘ In the movie when she’s sitting in the bay window and it goes October, November, December and she’s still sitting there, I went through that at one part (of) my life and it just brought it flooding back.’’

Despite their messy parting, Nicks, now 63, says she and Buckingham remain friends. He also worked on In Your Dreams.

‘‘ He came and played on Soldiers Angel and he really saved the day on that one,’’ she says.

‘‘ I think that really is a super tie between us because I think that song’s going to last forever.’’


Sunday Magazine Australia June 26, 2011

IT WAS just after she had seen the Twilight film New Moon while on tour in Australia. Stevie Nicks was so taken by the fated love story that she stole upstairs to her Melbourne hotel room and wrote a fivepage essay about iconic love affairs.

She wrote about Bella and Edward, about Beauty and the Beast and about her own love story, between herself and her musical partner in life, Lindsey Buckingham, of Fleetwood Mac.

The similarities between their story and Bella and Edward’s in New Moon were uncanny. A forbidden love. A love that cannot work, she describes it.

Review Stevie Nicks In Your Dreams 4 out of 5 by Indie London...

Review by Jack Foley
Rating: 4 out of 5

STEVIE Nicks’ In Your Dreams is the singer’s first LP of new material for a decade and, for fans in particular, it’s well worth the wait.

Nicks’ distinct vocals retain the same power as her Fleetwood Mac days, while her song-writing demonstrates a wealth of ambition, taking in everything from New Orleans and Twilight tributes to tracks inspired by the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Edgar Allan Poe.

In doing so, she’s also amassed a strong army of supporting talent, including Mac band-mate Lindsey Buckingham, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ Mike Campbell, long-term guitarist buddy Waddy Wachtel and Dave Stewart.

In truth, it’s debatable whether Nicks will win any new fans, such is the classic (and familiar) traits she brings to proceedings (there are moments this could pass for a Fleetwood Mac record). But given the length of time it has taken to emerge, In Your Dreams has to go down as a welcome comeback for the artist.

And there are plenty of highlights among the 14 tracks, starting with the opener, Secret Love, an oldie she wrote way back in ’76 and which could easily have ended up on a Fleetwood LP. It’s steeped in classic values… guitar backing, strong sense of melody, folk-rock tendencies and a notable chorus. And it gets things started in suitably assured fashion.

Nicks herself describes the LP as “a full blown rock ‘n’ roll album with some beautiful ballads’ but early on it’s more ballad driven. Secret Love isn’t really a rock song, while For What It’s Worth is a Dylan-esque folk ballad with country elements that showcases a tender side to the singer that’s welcome, but perhaps too early. It does, however, mark one of Campbell’s contributions.

Fortunately, that rock vibe drops with the rousing foot-stomper that is title track In Your Dreams, the sort of offering that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Petty record. It’s a real good time.

The ambition of her song-writing then becomes evident on Wild Sargasso Sea, a song that is based upon the novel of the same name that Jean Rhys wrote as a prequel to Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre. It’s a brooding slow-burner that contains plenty of atmosphere and some cracking lyrics. And yes, it has to rate as another highlight.

Stevie Nicks: On the eve of her first solo album release in 10 years, the Fleetwood Mac songstress talks to Simon Price

Stevie Nicks: 'Love is fleeting for my life as a travelling woman'
On the eve of her first solo album release in 10 years, the Fleetwood Mac songstress talks to Simon Price

It's a summer evening in a classy London hotel.

The first thing you notice entering the suite Stevie Nicks calls home ahead of her first British solo show in two decades is a scattering of large, lit, white candles. It's daytime, but in terms of ambience they speak volumes. Because if Stevie Nicks, poet-sorceress of the popular imagination, is ever off-duty, she won't let it show.

From a young age, Stephanie Lynn Nicks was a dreamer. Even when working as a waitress or a cleaner in Hollywood to fund the failed debut album she recorded with her lover Lindsey Buckingham in 1973, Nicks was already imagining herself a romantic gypsy princess. This persona took flight in 1975 when the Buckingham-Nicks duo were recruited into Fleetwood Mac, transforming the washed-up British blues band's fortunes. Despite legendary narcotic excesses and mind-boggling inter-band relationships, Fleetwood Mac reached unimaginable heights with the sensual, scarf-swirling singer Nicks as their talisman. Their 1977 record Rumours remains one of the top 10 biggest-selling albums of all time. And, as she launched a parallel solo career in the Eighties,

Today, all the accessories you'd expect are present: the crescent moon pendant, the lacy black blouse, the ankle-snapping stiletto boots (a habit adopted so she wouldn't look so tiny sharing a stage with the giant Mick Fleetwood), and, on the third finger of each hand, a ring encrusted with dazzling diamonds. At 63, she remains a rare beauty: that silky blonde hair, those sultry eyelids, and those flared nostrils into which she once joked that she'd shovelled "so much cocaine you could put a big gold ring through my septum". Sometimes she'll speak a syllable which flutters into the honeyed vibrato you've heard on "Sara", "Seven Wonders", "Rooms on Fire" or "Dreams". When you meet Stevie Nicks, she doesn't disappoint.

Curling into an armchair draped with a sheepskin rug, she begins to explain why her new album, In Your Dreams, comes 10 years after her last. In 2005, she spent a long, difficult day at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington DC, to which badly injured soldiers from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan are invalided. Her eyes well up at the memory. "I can honestly say I walked in there, Stevie Nicks, a rock'n'roll star, without a care in the world. And I walked out of there a mother. With a whole lotta children."
