NYDaily News

Fleetwood Mac is famous for drug-addled affairs between band members. But at the Hamptons Film Festival premiere of “In Your Dreams,” a documentary about the making of her 2011 album of the same name, Stevie Nicks told Confidenti@l she has no plans to write a juicy tell-all.

“I’m never going to write that kind of book,” Nicks (above) said. “If I do anything, it will be just vignettes of the magical moments of my life.”

Go your own way, Stevie!

Enhanced Buzz
See how one quote can take on a life of it's own? Huge amount of on-line press with Stevie's remarks towards Nicki Minaj (some of it below).

But I have to admit, some of the headlines from today are pretty hilarious!  It's debatable whether the saying "All Press is Good Press" applies... 

Stevie has since released a statement through her publicist Liz Rosenberg retracted what she said 

“I want to apologize for my remarks about Nicki Minaj’s behavior toward Mariah Carey which I said during a long and exhausting day of interviews. It was very out of character for me and I deeply regret what I said. I feel very protective toward Mariah Carey who has gone through many difficulties in her life and I spoke without thinking. I think all artist should be respectful toward one another and that includes me. I am truly sorry.” 
- Stevie Nicks

AMERICAN Idol execs can thank their lucky stars they didn't hire Stevie Nicks as a judge: explaining an on-air strangling to the censors would have been difficult.

Nicks, who was coach for the contestants last season, weighed into the on-air feud between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, telling The Daily that she would have sent Minaj to the place where the rooms are permanently on fire if she had been in Carey's shoes.

Stevie Nicks Says She Wants to Literally Murder Nicki Minaj

Following news of the weirdly boring/probably fake feud between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, itinerant fortune teller Stevie Nicks decided she should probably jump in. NATURALLY. And her words for Minaj were not pretty.

"I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it," the former Fleetwood Mac star promised.

Stevie added that normally she would have just gone with a bat-bogey hex or a jelly-legs jinx, but unfortunately she had her wand confiscated by the Wizengamot for violating the International Statute of Secrecy. So, manual strangulation it was. Then she ran out of polyjuice potion and turned back into Professor Trelawney. The end.

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.

Program Notes
With her bewitching, emotionally charged songs—from “Rhiannon” to “Landslide”, “Dreams” to “Gypsy”—singer/songwriter Stevie Nicks cemented her status as one of the most distinctive female voices in rock history as a member of Fleetwood Mac and through her own solo career.

Join us for a lively conversation with one of rock music’s most distinctive voices.
