Stevie Nicks (or her label shall I say) Enters The Social Scene
All sites have been made official pages dedicated to Stevie as of this evening... Sarah (Community Manager at Warner Bros Records.) has been tweeting the links to the pages... Check them out!

Knowing it's a label rep doing the socializing makes it a little more plausible since we all know that Stevie doesn't Facebook or Myspace and she DOES NOT TWEET!  All sites/pages are brand spanking new except for the Facebook page - so don't expect too much right now. The Facebook page is sort of new... It's been there awhile just under a different link. Looks like Warners personalized the URL with Stevie's name which changes the link in which to get to the page. All the Facebook people that liked the page previously seem to be intact... So in a way it is new... Hopefully Warners engages fans and really takes this opportunity to involve people... I think they'd enjoy it!  And everyone is super excited and can't wait for May 3rd and for what's to come this year for Stevie!

(PHOTOS) Stevie Nicks just finished performing on Ellen

Here's a couple of shots of Stevie being led by Karen her Assistant and another guy - captures from the ustream live site from backstage.... Karen and another guy bringing Stevie off the stage back to her dressing room presumably.... These three were moving at a pretty brisk clip.. Wonder what the hurry was...  Maybe just to get out of the way - or maybe Rod was performing after her.  On her official Twitter stream it was posted this evening that she performed her new single... So check out the show tomorrow to hear it.

And were outta here... Stevie and Rod with Karen in grey behind.

Stevie when she first walks in heading for her dressing room... Curlers in her hair on top of her head.. Wearing the beige platform boots.

According to Amazon...

The New Release From Stevie Nicks is titled
 "In Your Dreams" 
and will hit the street May 3, 2011
 via Reprise.  

Great title by the way!!  There's also a song on the album called the same.

Finally! A date! A Title! Now we just need the album cover photo!  AND to find out what the "special announcement" tomorrow on Ellen will be! Could it be that Rod and Stevie confirm their much speculated about tour together this Spring?

Dave Stewart also tweeted today that we'll see on Ellen the first cover shot of the single he took of Stevie tomorrow...

Err... "may not be the single cover image I shot on Ellen today just found out"

It's all in the Adjectives....

David Wild gets his paws on the new Stevie Nicks album for a listen... First initial feelings on the new album?.... He thinks it's her best solo album ever! and describes the album as:
"Deeply Romantic, Cinematic,  Personal, 
Poetic and Dreamy,"

David visited Stevie and Dave Stewart in the studio during recording back in July and wrote a column on her new album that appeared in the September 16, 2010 issue of Rollingstone.

There's been a lot of excitement building around the release of this album... It's been 10 long years since Stevie's last solo studio album...Too long frankly.  Thanks to both Dave Stewart and David Wild for fueling this excitement... and Stevie of course.

David is a contributing editor of Rollingstone Magazine and The Huffington Post. Follow David Wild on Twitter and check him out on The Huffington Post.  While you're at it follow Mr. Dave Stewart as well!!.

Our goal is to raise at least $100,000 at MSRP of pro audio hardware and software, musical instruments and other items of interest to our constituency, and we're asking for your help in meeting this goal. One of the headline items this year will be a Rick Turner Original Model 1 Lindsey Buckingham Signature Guitar, autographed by this year’s Les Paul Award recipient, Lindsey Buckingham.

Exciting Announcement to Come This Thursday on Ellen With Stevie and Rod


Not just one, but two legendary musicians are stopping by! ROD STEWART and STEVIE NICKS are here, and they’ll both sing one of their classic hits. Plus, they’ve got an exciting announcement that you don’t want to miss!

This text was taken from the email notification from The Ellen show.

What we know so far is that RICKY PETERSON - Stevie's keyboard player has confirmed he'll be there... WADDY WACHTEL, Stevie's lead guitarist and Musical Director, according to his facebook page, will also be performing on Ellen along with Stevie's bass player AL ORTIZ who will be playing bass for both Stevie and Rod...  Who's drumming? Jimmy Paxson? not sure... Percussion?  Not Taku - he's busy preparing for a Josh Groban tour... Lenny Castro possibly?  Is Carlos Rios back along with Sharon and Lori?

RUMOURS AND SPECULATIONS have Stevie and Rod announcing a joint tour or slate of shows together.  With Stevie's new album not expected now until late spring along with Dave Stewart still talking about doing shows with Stevie this Spring/Summer, and his own album now slated for a May release - plus the fact that Rod has Euro dates booked beginning June, one can only assume that IF Stevie and Rod were to announce a joint tour that it will be a short pre-album release tour.  We will have to wait and see this Thursday.
