There's no question that Stevie Nicks and Rod Stewart are legends in the music industry. One was a founding member of Fleetwood Mac, and was once called "The Reigning Queen of Rock and Roll" by Rolling Stone Magazine- not an accolade to be taken lightly.

  1. I'm sure that Stevie clearly understands and appreciates the sacrifices that our soldiers have made. Afterall, she comforted those with blown off limbs and shattered skulls. Her 7 hr stint at the hospital was a huge wake up call for her and compelled her to find a way to give back to the soldiers, hence the iPod giveaways. Seems sad that the author found her to be self serving, too slow on the dance moves and incapable of hitting the notes that make her voice uniquely her voice. Advice to this reporter: open your heart and let the music in and stop trying to critique every little thing.
