For you youngins’ who aren’t familiar, she’s the lead singer of Fleetwood Mac and basically the most awesome old school rocker chick out there.

Anyway, Carson had the chance to catch up with Miss Nicks the other day and she had a little bit of friendly advice for him.

Carson paraphrased their conversation on AMP Radio this morning:

“I’m listening to AMP and I like some of the music, but here’s the problem with radio these days,” Nicks told Carson. “I never hear the DJs talking about the music. I’ll hear a song and I’ll be like, ‘Oh, I like this! Educate me. Who’s this?’”

“So it’s hard for me to download new music because I just hear songs all the time from bands I’ve never heard of,” she continued.

Carson is taking Stevie Nicks’ words to heart.

“I’m going to try now and make a conscious effort to be a little more aware of that and so, I think we all need to maybe a little bit,” he admitted.

“So, Stevie, that was John Legend. John Legend. L-E-G-E-N-D. ‘All of Me’ is the name of the song. It was a remix done by our friend Tiesto, who will be at AMPLIFY.”

And now we’re going to educate YOU on the awesomeness that is Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac. Here’s their hit song, “Go Your Own Way.”

Must be even harder for Stevie to download anything since she has always claimed she doesn't own a computer .. hmmm maybe she has an ipod

Carson Daly is a bit of a hypocrite. He starts off by showing respect for Stevie, but by the end they are basically making fun of her.

Stevie has said before she does own an iPod and is comfortable with it. She even talked once about how when she was working with Vanessa Carlton she dropped her iPod in the pool.

I agree with Stevie, you listen to the radio and nobody tells you who has sung the song or what it is called. It is all about the adverting played on the radio instead of the artist these days. It is the same in Australia. I too listen to the radio and go I love that song, but then an ad comes on and nobody tells you who sung it or what it is called!!
