Extra TV Raw Red Carpet Footage - Stevie Nicks Interview... She enjoys Whale Wars and Deadliest Catch NOT!

Poor Stevie... While in London all she's had to watch on TV was Whale Wars and Deadliest Catch..."I'm so into it" HA! She kills me... Adam Lavine interview right after Stevie - he pays her some genuine compliments... And Javier Colon after Adam speaks about Stevie... Lot's of love for Stevie!!

Would Stevie Nicks have tried out for "The Voice"? WATCH VIDEO

Stevie Nicks performed onstage last night with Javier Colon before he was crowned the winner of “The Voice.”

The duo did a wonderful rendition of Stevie’s Fleetwood Mac hit “Landslide.” Check out the performance below. We caught up with Stevie after the show to find out if she would have tried out for a show like “The Voice” if it had existed when she was starting out.

“If I was by myself, or even if Lindsey (Buckingham) and I were by ourselves and we weren’t successful with getting a record deal and something like this came up…I would have had to drag him by the hair, but yes, absolutely, sure!”

Stevie also talked about if she thought Javier would win when they went on stage to perform and if she was a fan of the show.

Q&A Stevie Nicks on Inspiration, Collaboration, and Her New Dreams

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Since Stephanie Nicks became “Stevie” in 1973, the ethereal songstress has recorded 18 albums, been nominated for 17 Grammys, and had one of the music industry’s most notorious love affairs — with fellow Fleetwood Mac member, Lindsey Buckingham. Yet Nicks’ latest album, In My Dreams, released in May, marks the first time the singer/songwriter has worked with a collaborator in the songwriting process (even in Fleetwood Mac, Nicks and Buckingham wrote separately). Working closely with Dave Stewart of The Eurhythmics, Nicks has produced some of her most compelling work since Bella Donna; she seldom sings as vulnerably, and her voice still has the haunting rasp that’s classic Stevie. So I was disappointed when her tour was cancelled, due to pneumonia, just several days before her live show in New York. Still, Nicks spoke to Riff City from her Los Angeles home, where she recorded In My Dreams. Her smoky contralto was instantly recognizable — and in no need of auto-tune — as she offered her thoughts on the creative process, the new LP, and why she doesn’t plan to retire anytime soon.

Riff City: Congratulations on your album. It’s beautiful.

Stevie Nicks : Thank you.

RC: I was disappointed that you cancelled your East Coast tour. Tell me, Do you still enjoy touring?

SONG PREMIERE: Free Download New Single "Seeds We Sow" Lindsey Buckingham

Guitar legend and Fleetwood Mac member Lindsey Buckingham has worked with the best and brightest producers in the music industry, but for his upcoming sixth studio album 'Seeds We Sow,' he takes a more solitary approach, recording, writing and producing entirely on his own. And if the title track is any indication, Buckingham fans are in for a completely fresh sound.

Check out the widget below to download the single for the cheap price of an e-mail.

"This might be the best work I've ever done," the guitarist said in a press release. "I think it's an excellent representation of what I do. It shows a certain maturity and musicianship and I just feel like I have a lot of tools in my musical vocabulary from which to draw that are again the product of the choices I've made. It's on my own terms. This is very much from the inside out and I hope I never stop doing that."

Featuring only guitar and vocals, 'Seeds We Sow' employs a slight slapback echo on Buckingham's signature finger-picking style, making the guitar both percussive and melodic underneath his dark, whispering vocals.

Buckingham will be supporting his forthcoming album with a 31-city North American tour starting in September. 'Seeds We Sow' will be released Sept. 6 via Eagle Rock.

Review: Hard Rock Calling, Hyde Park, London Rated 3/5

Beguiling rock princess: Stevie Nicks 
Reviewed by Chris Mugan
Wednesday, 29 June 2011
The Independent

Despite Glastonbury's moves ever further mainstream, London's mud-free alternative remains distinctive. Who could imagine Somerset hosting a tent-full of fans crooning "Lifted" by Nineties soul-poppers Lighthouse Family?

Otherwise, the three-day Hard Rock Calling relies on stellar headliners with little strength in depth. On Friday evening a sizeable main-stage crowd ignore impending drizzle and James's more quixotic material to bellow "Sit Down". Kaiser Chiefs unite students and office workers with epic takes on "Ruby" and "Oh My God", while showing a more contemplative bent on their current album The Future Is Medieval. It is best served peppered with metallic heft, as on "Little Shocks" and "Long Way From Celebrating".

Elsewhere, The Kills hone their tense garage grind, before The Killers close the night. The next afternoon, Ray Davies, fresh from Meltdown, fronts a rollicking bar-room band. In good spirits, he reminds us of The Kinks' gritty edge with a little too much of the irascible choir master – "If you don't know it, learn it."

Unsurprisingly, given they boast last year's highest grossing tour, Bon Jovi are the weekend's most well-oiled machine. They are especially formidable with guitarist Richie Sambora back from a spell in rehab, though a near three-hour set reveals limits to their common man shtick: more recent tunes resemble knock-offs of earlier efforts, with "We Weren't Born To Follow" rehashing "It's My Life". Even worse is the eponymous Jon's reinvention of "Hallelujah" as a cock-rock ballad, possibly the worst version yet.

On a blazing Sunday, Adam Ant avoids controversy on his first outdoor set since Live Aid, though weak vocals and a goth-metal backing band handicap the hits. Stevie Nicks, by contrast, is still the beguiling rock princess on her first solo UK date for 20 years. Bar one number, her comeback album In Your Dreams is ditched in favour of injecting hard-won wisdom into older solo rockers and Fleetwood Mac standards.

Later, she joins headliner Rod Stewart for a tepid run through "Young Turks", leaving Ronnie Wood to cut through the supper club schmaltz on "Maggie May" and "Stay With Me". Rod has one eye on an upcoming Las Vegas residency, though such reliability pleases Hyde Park just as well.
