Stephanie Lynn Nicks (born May 26, 1948) is an American singer-songwriter who is often referred to as the Queen of Rock and Roll. Nicks is best known for her work with Fleetwood Mac, and for her chart-topping solo career. She is known for her distinctive voice, mystical stage persona and poetic, symbolic lyrics. Collectively, her work both as a member of Fleetwood Mac and as a solo artist has produced over 40 top-50 hits and sold over 140 million records, making her one of the best selling music acts of all time with Fleetwood Mac.

This remarkable set contains a selection of superb live radio broadcast recordings of Stevie in concert, made at various points of the singer’s sell-out tours of the 1980s the period which, most fans would agree, witnessed the absolute pinnacle of her solo work. Kicking off with the extraordinary show Nicks gave at LA’s Wilshire Ebell Theatre, in December 1981 while promoting her debut solo album Bella Donna, the set continues with a marvellous gig performed at the famous Cuyahoga Fairgrounds venue in New York, mid-decade, while touring her Rock a Little album.

  2. Thanks so much for this . Let’s not forget Stevie’s short but memorable off and on collaboration with Tom Petty . Although they only recorded a few songs and toured together sporadically. What they gave us together was magical. Great rockers and tearful ballads ( insider ) They had such chemistry in the studio and onstage. Stevie even considered leaving the Mac to join the heartbreakers full time . Tom called her an honorary heartbreaker. To me their duets were better than her ones with Lindsay Buckingham . Here’s hoping that more Tom / Stevie duets are uncovered in the vaults one day .

  3. Thanks as always big o. You disparage so many other types of music that its kind of hard to believe this is what you wait around for, Bill. You’ve said that a normal comments section is boring, well you know what’s really boring? Your obsession with musicians dicks, your inability to use commas, and your opinions..

    By Tony Bologne on May 16, 2018

  4. Stevie got her start by doing background vocals on Warren Zevon’s self-titled first album, when she was known as “Stephanie Nicks”. Her voice on Mohammed’s Radio is unmistakable. Zevon belongs in the Hall Of Fame…

  5. I try to ignore the trolls and degenarates here . I only comment on music or try to . I cannot control what people may or may not think . Every one here has an opinion as to who’s who but I try and let it roll off . Also if you dont like Stevie Nicks and or Tom Petty , that’s your right to feel that way . Everyone has their own tastes .

  6. TDC , I didn’t know about Stevie’s association with Warren Zevon . Thanks for the info

    By Eli on May 17, 2018

  13. Stop poking the Bear . You’re not helping.

    By LC on May 18, 2018

  14. The bear doesn’t sleep even when not poked. Tell you what, I won’t comment for 2 weeks lets see what you do.

    By Tony Bologne on May 18, 2018

  15. It probably won’t stop but but commenting only intensifies it and brings more attention ‘ which is what they want but of course that’s what you want as well . That’s why you keep bringing it up . It’s a game .

    By LC on May 18, 2018

  16. There’s a bear? . . . . . . .
