NEW SXSW Stevie Nicks 'In Your Dreams' Film Trailer

Check out the new SXSW trailer for Stevie's film that will be screened at the Music and Film Conference on March 14th.  There are new scenes in this 3 minute piece that haven't been shown before... Mick and Lindsey are seen recording at Stevie's home, plus I love the live footage included that was shot at 'In Your Dreams' CD Release Event at the Wiltern in Los Angeles in May, 2011. Hopefully that show was captured in it's entirety... Was a pretty exciting night!

Stevie Nicks / Fleetwood Mac fans turned out in noisy numbers + Lindsey Buckingham Live in LA

In Your Dreams Documentary mention:

Hamptons haven: 
Long Island film fest is small but robust
By Doris Toumarkine
Film Journal

"Another surprise came from a Stevie Nicks doc tucked into the appropriately spacious but slightly funky Sag Harbor venue (think theatres of the ’70s and ’80s that housed rock concerts). Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac fans turned out in noisy numbers for the exuberant and thoroughly thrilling docIn Your Dreams—Stevie Nicks, a delicious account of the legendary singer and her collaboration with Eurythmics original and renowned pop producer/musician Dave Stewart. Honest, intimate and music-packed, the film has the charismatic Nicks and Stewart front stage and center as they record their album. Yes, this often seems like a full-length promotional music-video for their latest album, but fans couldn’t ask for more. Both in fact pushed the promotion by appearing for a post-screening interview and the audience went wild (well, not that wild, as it was the Hamptons)."


Lindsey Buckingham will be performing in Los Angeles on November 1st at the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors gala at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.

If you are interested, tickets can be purchased for the event... A single ticket will set you back $500.  It's to benefit the Board of Governors Cardiac Stem Cell Research Institute.

This gig never ended up happening!

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

A look back at the Mill Valley Film Festival
by Mal Karman
By Steve Jennings

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...

Fleetwood Mac member Stevie Nicks Opens Up MVFF35 About Film, Album and Roller Coaster Career

Stevie Nicks Opens Up MVFF35 About Film, Album and Roller Coaster Career

In promoting a new documentary about the making of her first solo album in more than a decade, former Fleetwood Mac singer returns to the Bay Area, where she spent some of her most crazy and creative years.

When you listen to Stevie Nicks’ new album, In Your Dreams, sit on a couch with two huge speakers at your side - hopefully in front of a fireplace - pour yourself a glass of port, and take it in from start to finish.

That’s the request Nicks made after the screening of her self-produced documentary Friday night during the 35th Mill Valley Film Festival. The film chronicles the year she spent recording her first solo alum in more than a decade, with Eurythmics' Dave Stewart, who joined Nicks on stage at the sold-out Smith Rafael Film Center in San Rafael.

Nicks' ties to the Bay Area run deep. She lived in San Francisco from 1968 to 1971, and recorded the renowned Fleetwood Mac album Rumours at the former Record Plant in Sausalito during a stretch that had the group regularly piling into the studio's outdoor hot tub.

For this latest album, the magic happened at Nicks’ own mansion in Pacific Palisades  – although the 64-year-old rock 'n' roll icon actually lives with her dog in a one-bedroom condo a few minutes away. With people like Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham, Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and 'her girls,' backup singers Sharon Celani and Lori Nicks, all together under one roof, for Nicks it became “the moments that I live for.”

“I really wanted it to go on forever,” she said. Documenting the experience has been a way for her to relive it, and she also hopes it influences up and coming musicians about how much fun the process of creating an album can be.

Recap | Photos | Video: An Afternoon With Stevie Nicks + In Your Dreams Screening + Stevie Backstage

Full Hour Conversation with Stevie Nicks
Hampton International Film Festival
A couple of things Stevie touched on during the Q&A session in Sag Harbor was that she just did a thing for iHeart Radio and mentioned that they listened to the playback to see if they wanted to tweak it prior to it being aired.  I'm not a subscriber to iHeart Radio, so if anyone is, keep your ears peeled for when this is supposed to air, or maybe it already has.  Also, she mentioned that she has two more gigs coming up something on Halloween and the Elton John benefit.  We know about the Elton John benefit in NYC on Oct 15th, and we know about the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Women’s Guild Cedars-Sinai Gala she's performing at on November 13th, but the Halloween thing.  It's apparently in San Francisco Oct 31st.  It's likely another corporate or private gig.

An Afternoon With Stevie Nicks + In Your Dreams Screening
Sag Harbor, NY - October 7 , 2012
By: Val

For those that weren't able to attend yesterday, I thought I’d write down highlights I remember. For Stevie fans, it was truly a dream come true to see her in this setting.

She was charming, captivating, classy, candid, honest and the best part, hilarious! What a great sense of humor she has. She spoke of things we have read in previous interviews, how the writing process started with Dave, how she’d never written with anyone else before. Even if she had collaborated, it was done thru Campbell sending her tracks and her putting the lyrics to it, never in the same room with the co-writer. She talked about how easy it was to work with Dave as it was never argumentative, as it could be with Lindsey. She described the whole creation of the album as being so magical, which we were later to see in the documentary, magical indeed....oh to be a fly on the wall in that house!!

She told a story of Lindsey trying to tell her it was in bad form to change from first to second person tense in the middle of writing a song, and it was more like a lecture than a suggestion and how that is why she could never write with him as she does not like being told what to do! It was very funny, and the audience was hanging on her every word. You would never tell that to Bob Dylan, she told him. She also spoke on how it was Lindsey’s working on Soldier’s Angel that really brought them to a good place, prior to that, is was still a war going on.

As someone said, she spoke about after they lost the Grammy for The Dance, she said that Lindsey was upset about that, and it was right after that that Christine said she “was done” and Stevie said by the look on her face it was that look that you get when someone breaks up with you, when you know there are no if ands or buts, it is done. She also stated that Christine over time had been in a band since she was 14 I think and over time, she had become really afraid of flying, extreme panic attacks, and could not do it any longer because of that. She said that they were done touring the US for The Dance and could have easily toured Europe, Australia etc., but it would have required a lot of flights and that Christine just could not do it any longer.

An audience member asked her if she’d write a memoir, and she stated that she was not interested in writing about the dark stuff, if you want to read that, there are plenty of articles from the 70’s that cover that. She said she’d would like to cover the highlights in a book, vignettes of things that were highlights of her life, the first time she saw a private jet just for Fleetwood Mac, the first time she put on one of her beautiful dresses, men that had touched her life, some of her drawings and poetry, things like that. She thought it was un-classy that in Heart’s newly released bio, they have a story in there of doing coke with Stevie that she said was a private moment and as much as she loves them as artists, she was not pleased that they chose to write about it.

For those of us worried she might slow down, rest assured, she spoke of starting with Fleetwood Mac in March 2013, writing more songs, and will continue her solo career as well. An audience member asked if she’d ever do a stripped down tour, just guitar and piano and she spoke about having so many songs that are never done live, and how it would be nice to go out and do a few minutes of songs that blend together and she sang a medley of Bella Donna, Wild Heart and Rock a Little, the crowd melted with that. After the film Q&A she brought it up again, saying it would be nice to do in a small setting with old video clips playing in a surround setting on the walls, and then joked about having no computer skills and having all these high tech ideas.

The film was absolutely exquisite. They showed clips and photos of Fleetwood Mac in the 70’s, pix of her and her family as a toddler, teen, etc. In the beginning there is a montage of clips from fans at concerts, talking about why we love her so. Then we see Dave knocking on her door and coming in to start the record. They broke down I think, every song on the record, showed how it was created, from start to finish and then music video type beautiful clips for each. They show actual video that she shot with friends from the balcony in Italy for Italian Summer, a fireworks display in the evening and then a storm coming in over the sea that was absolutely incredible. There were a lot of tough moments to watch where you could hear audience members crying, New Orleans showed a lot of the brutal footage of Katrina with people dead in the street, starving and suffering, and then she explained how that drove her to the piano to write that song. Same for Soldiers Angel, actual footage of a soldier she had visited in a coma in a very critical state, and then she told afterwards how he survived and attended her show in Boston this past summer, very very touching. Each song had approx. a 10 minute piece devoted to it, and the audience would applaud after each segment.

The fan clips were great, one of the women, Miriam was in the audience, and Stevie gave her the Wayne’s World, we’re not worthy bow from the stage in the Q & A, a moment, I am sure she will remember forever. A soldier’s clip on how her album saved him and helped him cope while serving, listening to it every day, very touching. There were so many great moments, it would take me all day to write it all. The best was really seeing Stevie reveling in her status of Rock and Roll Queen and legend, the stories told, the work accomplished and the life that she has lead on her own terms, her own rules, incredibly smart, strong, creative, and so so funny. We were all in awe, I’ll never forget it. There is magic.....all around you...... every time you walk in the room.

Thank you Val for your write-up/photos and for sending it in!

STEVIE NICKS Unveils 'In Your Dreams" Documentary TODAY in The Hamptons

Another piece of the "In Your Dreams" puzzle comes together today (October 7, 2012) when Stevie Nicks and Dave Stewart gather at the Sag Harbor Cinema in Sag Harbor, NY at 3pm to unveil their highly anticipated documentary on the making of Stevie's last album "In Your Dreams".

Stevie Nicks fans have traveled from far and wide to be some of the first in the world to see the premiere of the documentary.  It's been a long wait since it was first revealed back in 2010 that the whole album making process was being filmed, but at the same time it seems time has flown by! I know it's going to be an amazing film! To all those going, have fun and enjoy!! This is a once in a lifetime experience that will likely never occur like this again.

Events kick off at 12 noon with Stevie and Dave in Sag Harbor at the Bay Street Theater for a 90 minute conversation.  Then its off to the Sag Harbor Cinema across town for the world premiere at 3pm.

Big thanks to Dave Stewart and Weapons of Mass Entertainment, and to Stevie of course, for making this happen!

The final piece of the puzzle will be when the DVD/Blu-ray is released.  No word on when that will happen, but there will be more screenings of the documentary beyond the already announced dates below:

Pleasantville, NY - October 8, 2012

San Rafael, CA - October 12, 2012
Mill Valley, CA - October 13, 2012

Stevie Nicks on Film: 'The World Used to Give You More of a Chance'
Fleetwood Mac memories were in the air on Sunday as the legendary lead singer showed the world her new music documentary at the Hamptons Film Festival.

Since the early ‘70s, iconic songstress Stevie Nicks has been living and sharing her dreams through music that has touched a universal nerve over the years — even if you’re not a fan of Nicks or Fleetwood Mac, you’ve heard the mega hits like “Dreams,” “Landslide,” and “Stand Back” on the radio, on the jukebox, or over the P.A. at the grocery store.

As part of the Hamptons Film Festival, Nicks shared her thoughts about her sweeping musical career and her latest solo album, entitled “In Your Dreams,” to a lively audience at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor on Sunday afternoon before the debut of a music documentary that chronicles the making of the album.

“The world used to give you more of a chance — they might not like everything on your album, but they might like some of it, so they’re going to listen to all of it,” she said during a Q&A session at the Bay Street.

Nicks and longtime musical soul mate, guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, took the love of album-based songwriting to new heights right out of the gate with “Buckingham Nicks,” an acoustic-driven songfest that is still available only in its original 1973 vinyl form — much to the chagrin of a few fans from Westhampton Beach who stood in line outside of the theater with that very album in hand Sunday morning.

Quotes from today's event at the Bay Street Theatre plus reactions during and after the first screening of the documentary.

INTERVIEW: Stevie Nicks On Making "In Your Dreams" And The Hamptons
By Nicole B. Brewer and Nicole Barylski

After a ten year hiatus legendary songwriter Stevie Nicks is back with her latest album "In Your Dreams" and a rockumentary, produced by the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart, of the same name. "When you see it you are going to be living in my world for one hour and forty minutes," said Nicks during our recent interview. The 'gypsy' is in the Hamptons this weekend for the 20th Hamptons International Film Festival. We sat down with her at The Maidstone on a gorgeous fall afternoon to get the scoop. 

"It was the best year of my life! I have never had so much fun in my life," exclaimed Nicks as we sat in the garden and talked about nail polish a bit before our interview officially began. She prefers OPI Big Apple Red and does her nails herself saying as we settled in, "If I wasn't doing this I'd be a manicurist!" 

The "In Your Dreams" album was ten years in the making and all started with 9/11 explained Nicks, "I went on the road at the end of June with 'Trouble in Shangri-La'. I had been on the road for two and a half months, which is nothing and then 9/11 happened. So for all practical purposes the record and everything blew up." Nicks was in New York by herself set to enjoy her one day off on that fateful day, her band was in Canada getting ready for the next leg of the tour. "I went to bed at 7:30 p.m.," she went on to say, "and when [my assistant] Karen woke me up at 11 a.m. the world had changed." 

Ever generous to her devoted fans, Nicks stayed on the road for another month because "no one had turned their tickets in or asked for refunds." She went on the "Say You Will" tour with Fleetwood Mac in 2002, then again on her own in 2003 and 2004. During that time she kept pondering writing and another record but the music industry was in flux and piracy was a hot topic. Her advisors told her to enjoy touring and wait. Nicks says her managers told her, "You're a songwriter, you create the song it's yours, you write the poem, and you put it out. [Then] one person buys it and sends it out to 500 personal friends and they send it out to their friends. You are a songwriter this is how you make money. What we recommend is you go back on the road because you can still do big shows and sell tickets. A lot of people can't." So she did. 

Inspiration for "In Your Dreams" happened quite unexpectedly in 2009 while on tour with Fleetwood Mac in Australia. "I saw the second 'Twilight' movie and wrote 'Moonlight (A Vampire's Dream)' right then." Nicks told us, "There was a piano in my suite and I said to my assistant Karen, I am ready to make a record now. I don't care what is going on around me I'm doing it. If nobody wants it or everybody steals it I will have to deal with that then." 

As soon as she got off tour she called Dave Stewart and asked him if he wanted to work with her to produce. He jumped right in. "Dave came up [to my house] to spend one day discussing it and I said why don't we do it here. We don't have to go into the studio and pay $2,500 per day. He said, 'let's do it.'" Vamping a bit and mimicking her dear friend and collaborator she went on, "By the third day he said, 'Darling we have to film this.' And I said, 'Darling do you know what that means?' Now this guy dresses up every day and loves it." Nicks is not in full stage dress and makeup at home, she likes a more casual look. For her the thought of cameras every day meant hair, makeup, and wardrobe which caused some hesitation. She relented when he reassured her, "He said if you don't love it, we won't use it. I said, 'Hand to God?' and he promised 'Swear to God.'" But he didn't get off that easy. "Fair enough," she told him, "But I will hunt you down and kill you if any of it gets out and I don't like it." 

From there they filmed for a year and in her words, "Had the best time." Stewart's team then edited a year of her life down to three hours. Later the film would be cut to a final hour and forty minutes. "We finished just two weeks ago," said Nicks, "With that kind of thing it's like 'no you can't have it it's not done yet.'" When they finally handed it in and realized the film was complete Nicks was "in tears and I said 'take it.' It's like your child." 

Regarding the genius that is Dave Stewart, Nicks went on to gush a bit, "He is an amazing photographer. He's been filming women for years. With Annie Lennox, he is the reason she cut off all her hair. He was behind all of this amazing stuff, I didn't even know." On "In Your Dreams," Nicks says he gave everyone Flip cameras and said, "Everyone film and we will see what we come up with. If it doesn't make sense or is an 'Alice In Wonderland' bewitched world we won't put it up. If we love it we will let people have it." It was an "easy thing to do because Dave made it into a no big deal thing." 

Having only been in and out of the Hamptons a mere three times for benefits over the years Nicks is looking forward to enjoying the film festival weekend in Sag Harbor with friends. So if you notice a familiar looking blonde with a crescent moon necklace window shopping next to you on Main Street take time for a second look, it might just be the Stevie Nicks, star of "In Your Dreams" and 140 million album selling Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend. 

 • Get up close and personal with Stevie Nicks at Bay Street Theatre on Sunday, October 7, 2012, at noon for a "Conversation With Stevie Nicks" presented by Capital One. Catch a screening of "In Your Dreams" during the Hamptons International Film Festival this weekend at the Sag Harbor Cinema also on Sunday, October 7, 2012, at 3:00 p.m. For details check out

Stevie Nicks discusses her first film at the Hamptons International Film Festival
By Rafer Guzman

The Hamptons received a visit from California rock royalty Thursday night when Stevie Nicks drove into town. On Friday afternoon, Nicks, the face of Fleetwood Mac and a solo artist in her own right, began granting interviews to discuss her first film "In Your Dreams: Stevie Nicks."

The documentary chronicles the making of her 2011 album, "In Your Dreams," which was produced by Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics) and Glenn Ballard. It became the singer’s fifth album to enter Billboard’s Top Ten.

Stewart and Nicks co-directed the film, which will have its world premiere 3 p.m. Sunday at the Regal Southampton. Nicks will also be interviewed before a live audience earlier that day at 1 p.m. at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor.

Nicks, 64, sat poolside at the Maidstone hotel to talk about her first film and her first-time jitters. Here's an edited version of the conversation.

How did you choose the Hamptons festival for your world premiere?
I can't tell you that, because I honestly don't know. I've never been to a film festival. I've heard of Sundance and Cannes, but I've never gone to them, so I really have no idea.

So who made the decision?
Probably Liz [Rosenberg, powerhouse publicist, relaxing in a deck-chair nearby]. Dave and his people spent all last year editing the film, probably 10 to 11 months, down to 3 hours. And then on Feb. 1, me and Dave's editor and my assistant Karen [Johnston], we started editing at my house. So we edited for four months to take it from 3 hours down to an hour-40. I've been on tour, editing, on tour, editing. So really this has all come very fast. I was just told by the powers that be that the Hamptons film festival was fantastic, and that I was lucky enough to have been asked. I'm thrilled to be here, because I've never really gotten to spend any time here. I'm not leaving till Monday.

Are you coming to see the film?
I'll be the one cowering in the dark, with my hands over my eyes. I'll be all the way in the back row.
