Stevie Nicks interview with Tim Johnstone >>

Tim Johnstone of 94.9FM The River had the pleasure and honor of sitting down for a conversation with Stevie Nicks about her new CD In Your Dreams. The interview took place in La Costa California on February 18th, 2010. At that point, Stevie had just begun talking about her first new CD in ten years.

I don't think I've heard this interview... Couldn't find a post about it.... So hear it is.  It's from her time in San Diego during the Sunset Sessions.

Stevie Nicks greets fans at Amoeba Records

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The legendary Stevie Nicks is about to hit the road to promote her hit album "In Your Dreams."

It's a hit on the Billboard charts and Nicks wants it to stay that way. She went to Amoeba Records in Hollywood to meet fans and sign copies of her first solo album in 10 years.

"It's hard to sell records in this day and age, unless you're Lady Gaga or unless you're in that youthful kind of dance performance artist thing," said Nicks. "Which is great, but then there are the rest of us."

Nicks performed the first single off the album on "Dancing With The Stars" back in May and she hasn't stopped since.

"I will stand out on a street corner if I have to and play these songs with a boom box and a TV track if I have to get these songs out to the public," said Nicks.

Nicks has been bringing us songs since the 1970s, proving a classic never goes out of style because she's still singing.

Her longtime fans couldn't be happier. One woman drove in from Portland, Oregon.

"I love Stevie Nicks and I've never met her," said fan Anita Kayed. "I've been a fan for about 28 years and I've seen about 102 concerts."

"I've followed her for about 35 years," said Doug Shipley. "And like Anita, I have never met her and it's my life's dream too."

The songs included on "In Your Dreams" involve life and love. But there's also a social relevance; everything from hurricane Katrina, Sept. 11, and U.S. troops.

"I just feel that, we as musicians and songwriters, we have a job," said Nicks. "And that is to, whether you're Bob Dylan or whether you're me, we have a job to try to not only write good romantic music, but we're also kind of reporting the news as we go along also."

"In Your Dreams" is in stores now.

Stevie Nicks' new 'Dreams' becomes real with Stewart's collaboration

By Lynne Margolis | August 3, 2011
Your Houston News

When Stevie Nicks decided to record her first solo album in 10 years, she called her old pal, Eurythmics veteran Dave Stewart. Not only did he prove to be a particularly well-suited writing partner and producer, he shared a unique historical circumstance that bonded them in a special sort of kinship; like Nicks, Stewart had been part of a duo that was both musical and romantic. And like Nicks, his romance ended before the musical connection did.

Stewart, of course, was with Annie Lennox when the pair gained fame. Nicks had joined forces with Lindsey Buckingham when they were still high-school students, and when Buckingham was invited to join Fleetwood Mac, he said the Buckingham-Nicks duo, which had released one dead-in-the-water album, was a package deal. By the time they split, they had put their indelible stamp on what would become one of the best-selling albums of all time, 1977's "Rumours," a chronicle of two band couples coming apart (John and Christine McVie were the other) and Nicks' affair with the band's co-founder, drummer Mick Fleetwood.

The members of Fleetwood Mac have since splintered and come together again more than once, but in the meantime, each made solo forays. Nicks, however, has notched the most successful solo career of any Fleetwood Mac veteran (including several before she and Buckingham joined). Her string of hits, with and without Fleetwood Mac, represents one of pop music's most beloved canons: the list includes "Rhiannon," "Landslide," "Dreams" (a favorite topic), "Edge of Seventeen," "Leather and Lace" (a duet with one-time lover Don Henley), "Stand Back" and, with Tom Petty, "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around."

Her gypsy/witchy-woman look - Victorian-inspired gowns, high-heeled boots, leather and lace, silk and satin, romantic hats over long, blonde hair, all shown off with frequent stage twirls - set a tone in the ‘70s from which she hasn't wavered. Nicks hasn't changed her songwriting style much, either - or at least, she hadn't, until she began working with Stewart on her new CD, "In Your Dreams," released in May.

Up until he sat across from her in her L.A. living room, expecting her to sing along as he played, she'd never written a song with another person while sharing the same breathing space, face to face.

"I sent him 40 pages of poetry, never really expecting him to read all of it, but he did," Nicks recalled, speaking over the phone in her deep alto. "He puts his guitar on and he takes one of the poems out of the binder that I had sent him, and he said, ‘I like this poem. Let's do this one.'"

Startled ("like a deer in headlights," she said with a laugh), she wanted to tell him she doesn't write with other people. But she kept her mouth shut - likely a rare moment for a woman who hardly breaks for another question once she gets going during an interview.

Stevie Nicks definitely knows a thing or two about the music business and making a hit record (Interview with Lisa Hiser)

She released her latest album, In Your Dreams, a few months ago and according to her, it was one of the most fun records she’s ever done.

Lindsey Buckingham is a multi-platinum enigma — massively successful and still somehow an enduring, intriguing mystery. As an individual artist, Buckingham has remained a curiously low-profile figure, despite decades of high visibility as a member of Fleetwood Mac — the legendary band for which he has long served as a visionary leader and bold sonic architect.

[Download] Stevie Nicks with Jim Ladd Full Interview

on August 1st KLOS in Los Angeles Jim Ladd's special in studio guest was non-other than Stevie Nicks... I think the plan was for her to stick around from 10pm until Midnight... but she ended up staying for about 3 and half hours... They played her new album 'In Your Dreams' track by track discussing every track in depth... This was an awesome interview one that Stevie said herself she had been waiting since May 3rd to do. There's just so much to love about this interview... Not only because it's lengthy, but because it's with Jim. He's been a Stevie cheerleader for years, they have a long history stretching way back to the late 70's - some really great interviews between the two back in the day... There's too much in this interview to go over... so just download and listen.
