Double, bubble, toil, and trouble, we need Stevie Nicks on the double! (Ack, sorry we know that was majorly lame.) Our amazing Marc Malkin recently chatted with Lily Rabe and she revealed a little bit of behind-the-scenes scoop that you've just gotta hear. 

"She brought me this amazing black velvet jacket and lace 
skirt from her early 
Fleetwood Mac days." 

Rabe shared, 
"It's great sort of witch appropriate gear." 

So what will Nicks be doing on the show? The Coven star gushed, 

"There's singing and there's dancing and there's musical things that happen. I might be doing some shawl spinning."

Episode 10 titled "The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks" finds Fiona attempting to out the new Supreme with a visit from Stevie Nicks. This first episode in which Stevie appears will air January 8th.  A second episode that Stevie appears in hasn't been announced yet, but will take place sometime before the series ends in January.

Did you catch last nights Saturday Night Live? It Featured Fleetwood Mac's "I Don't Wanna Know"

Saturday Night Live Dec 7, 2013 
(Season 39 Ep. 8) 
"Diner Divorce" feat. Fleetwood Mac's "I Don't Wanna Know"
Host: Paul Rudd 
Musical Guests: One Direction.

Last nights show featured Fleetwood Mac's "I Don't Wanna Know" (from the 1977 Rumours album) during a skit with Paul Rudd, Vanessa Bayer, Kenan Thompson and Nasim Pedrad set in a Diner with Paul and Vanessa's characters sitting with their lawyers played by Kenan and Nasim arguing back and forth over their divorce settlement. In this segment called "Diner Divorce" which Entertainment Weekly called the "Worst Sketch" the two are seen arguing back and forth accusing the other for the breakdown of the marriage. Every so often (3 to be exact) the song "I Don't Wanna Know" would play (both their favourite song) and the conversation would break for a little happy groove session between the couple while their lawyers look on confused wondering if they really do want a divorce.  This would happen 3 times over the course of the segment. (Apparently because of copyright issues with the song, there isn't a clip available on-line like a number of the other clips from last nights show.)

After the second groove session, and their lawyers remarks about whether they really do want to divorce, Paul Rudd's character said "Yes, we do, but this song, I wish they'd stop playing this song". By the end of the skit and the third breakout groove session Paul's character says "Alright... who keeps playing that song!?" Kenan Thompson's character looks at his phone, speaks up and exclaims "Oh my goodness, that song is my ringtone. I've missed 3 calls... I'll never get that couch delivered"... Song begins playing again to end the skit... All four get up and groove to "I Don't Wanna Know".  Pretty cool... and not the traditional Fleetwood Mac song you hear, which is great!

Video: Stevie Nicks chats about the likelihood of more solo albums

Stevie Nicks' 2011 solo album, "In Your Dreams" was her first in over a decade. The recording process took place in her home and was captured in a documentary of the same name. "We realized two weeks into it we were having a great time and that this would probably be a good thing to film. We didn't think it was going to be a movie. We just thought it would be archival footage for us and only maybe six months into it did we start to realize we had something that we would want to share with the world." says Nicks.
Available at Amazon
or Warner Bros.

On Collaborating with Dave Stewart:
The film follows the iconic singer's collaboration with Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart. "It was so special that I don't know if something like this could ever be repeated again. Can Dave and I do another album together? Absolutely! Will we? Probably! Will we work together? Absolutely! Will it ever be exactly like that year? Probably not because that was like a mgical wedding where twenty people got married and it was everyday and it lasted for a year." she says.

On American Horror Story: Coven:
At 65-years old, Nicks has also started acting. She recently filmed a guest role on the 10th episode of FX's "American Horror Story:  Coven". "It was hard for me because I would get so nervous that the very simple line would just go right out of my head and I would be like ok say it over and over again and then it wouldn't come out."

On Fleetwood Mac and John McVie:
Fleetwood Mac cancelled several dates on their world tour after bassist John Mcvie was diagnosed with cancer.  Nicks says the band will be  back on stage soon. "We have three shows in Vegas. The 30th, 31st, and 8th of january and he is going to be through is treatment and then we are going to do those shows and then he is going to have a mini surgery and he is going to be all better. This band is never going to let anything get us down you know. John is going to be fine. We know that."

Stevie Nicks On 'In Your Dreams' Film, Christine McVie's Fleetwood Mac Return?

"The year of making ('In Your Dreams') was the best year of my life," says rock legend Stevie Nicks in her documentary of the same name.

The film, which was released to home video on Dec. 3, captures the writing and recording of Nicks' most recent studio album. Released in 2011, the set was co-produced by Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics fame), and was her first solo studio effort since 2001's "Trouble In Shangri-La."

Billboard sat down with Nicks at her home in Los Angeles -- the same house where much of "In Your Dreams" was recorded -- to talk about the new DVD and more. Highlights of that extended chat are in the video below.

New Interview: Stevie Nicks discusses In Your Dreams Doc., Fleetwood Mac and Christine McVie

Just Like Magic, Stevie Nicks Reappears In Your Dreams

This must be the Season of the Witch.

Not only did the brilliantly warped minds behind American Horror Story, Ryan and Murphy and Brad Falchuk, create a Coven of them for Season 3, but they also made the witchiest woman of them all part of it.

And Stevie Nicks couldn't be more delighted.

The hippest witch since Samantha Stephens, Nicks doesn't have to twitch her nose to make things happen. The wild heart of Fleetwood Mac, who cast a magical spell with her beguiling presence, dreamy tunes and seductive voice that's also one of the most romantic ever to rock your world, is a powerful force again.

On a season when character Misty Day professes her undying love for Stevie Nicks and her music that weaves its way into the series, the original rock goddess will appear during the closing episodes of Coven.

Saying she is now officially "part of a secret society," after filming her part just before Thanksgiving, Nicks teased, "I can't tell you a thing. ... My lips are sealed." But as enchanting as Nicks remains at the age of 65, it seemed likely the ethereal wordsmith would be more like an open book than a locked diary during this interview that touched on the current status of Fleetwood Mac, her plans for the future, the otherworldly hit FX show and her childhood fascination with witches.

DVD Available at Amazon
On the phone from her lovely home in Los Angeles on December 3, Nicks didn't need a broomstick to enjoy a thrill ride while promoting the DVD of her film documentary In Your Dreams, which was released earlier that day.

The experience, which captures the making of her album of the same name in 2011 with producer, multi-instrumentalist, co-songwriter and co-kindred spirit Dave Stewart, was "magical," Nicks said.

"And it was just nonstop fun. It was kind of like all the parents went away and left the kids. And it was like, 'Whatever, anything you want. Anything you want to do. And if you don't like it, we'll erase it. This is what they said to me: 'If you don't like the way you look, we'll fix it.' He (Stewart) really knows how to film women."

Nicks said the idea of filming the recording process, which also includes spellbinding glimpses into her past lives and loves, came after she decided to do her first solo album since 2001's Trouble in Shangri-La.

The song "Moonlight (A Vampire's Dream)" provided the initial inspiration, written in Brisbane at the end of Fleetwood Mac's 2009 world tour.

"When I got back to L.A., I had a little friend of mine who played violin (Torrey DeVitto), and so we did an acoustic rendition. ... When it was done, I just said, 'You know what? This is so great, I'm gonna have to twist my mind back around to making a record because I can't just put this out by itself."

Full article here but here's the section about Stevie:

You had mentioned that you wanted Stevie Nicks to come back. Is that gonna happen?
We have Stevie for another. Stevie will be in episode 10 and then we have Stevie for another one, doing an idea that she came up with that I thought was too perfect to say no to. Hilariously, Stevie read some of the scripts and called up and said “Are you aware that one of the things you’re doing I actually wrote a song about?” I’m like, “You’ve got to be kidding.” Then I remembered the song. We have something cool that was her idea.

Can you say what song it is?
No it gives it away!

The Grove in Los Angeles - In Your Dreams DVD Signing

Hordes of people for tonight's DVD signing in Los Angeles.  According to Stevie Nicks Info 400 wristbands were handed out beginning at 9am this morning. Anyone else waiting to meet Stevie were in a stand by queue and that line was over a hundred strong apparently. So an amazing turn out for Stevie tonight in LA and a nice boost for the DVD in it's first week of release - considering each person had to purchase a copy of the DVD or a CD if they wanted to meet Stevie and have it signed.  The usual suspects were there. Karen, Stevie's assistant was at her side, Sharon Celani who hasn't been at the last couple of signings was there tonight chatting and taking pics with fans.  Long waits in line for the people... but BIG pay off in the end! And it's not over yet. It's close to 10:30pm as I write this, the signing started at 7:00pm and people are still in line. To be continued tomorrow...

How I missed out on meeting Stevie Nicks
by Samuel

As some of you know, I am a huge Fleetwood Mac fan. But also, I am a huge fan of Stevie Nicks. For me, that band has shaped my love for music even more. And the mysteriousness of Nicks still captures me today. And I will admit, if I was a teenager in the 70s, I’d be mad crushing on her. Seriously, she’s amazing.
