Recap: A Grammy Museum Evening with Stevie Nicks

Stevie Nicks Shares a Dozen Stories at L.A. Performance
Billboard Magazine  by Phil Gallo, L.A.

Steve Nicks entertained and educated high school students and fans Wednesday at two sessions at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. She touched on everything from her childhood to her recently released album "In Your Dreams," providing the audience with imitations of her Fleetwood Mac bandmates Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham, tales of poverty and success and revelations about her past. Here are a dozen she shared.

1. "Moonlight" -- currently her favorite song on the new album "In Your Dreams" -- was written after she saw "The Twilight Saga: New Moon." "I saw it while we were on the road with Fleetwood Mac in Australia. I was so taken by the movie that I wrote a five-page essay after seeing it and went back to see it the next night in Brisbane. I had a piano in my room and I wrote ("Moonlight")."

2. There is music in the vaults from the "Fleetwood Mac" and "Rumours" sessions. "Lots of stuff -- lots of songs that turned into other songs. It could get released some day."

3. On the making of Fleetwood Mac's double album "Tusk" in 1979: "'Tusk' was 13 months at Village Recorders. Lindsey had tusks on the wall and all these weird Polaroids. I thought this must be what hell is like. With speakers. I felt like I was watching weirdo spirits. It's a lot more fun to tell stories about that record than it was to live through it."
