Stevie Nicks’s “Stand Back (1983),” which hit number 5 on the Top 100 Charts, is one of my few huge favorite songs from her AFTER she went on her solo career. However she made a big shift between music genres, in comparison to the music she did with the band. You know, I’ve always felt, and continue to feel that much of Stevie’s best songs were with Fleetwood Mac. That’s just my opinion. Then again, her great great success with the band could have resulted from her relationship with Lindsey Buckingham.
Relationship With Lindsey
At one point, it appeared as though the special relationship that both Stevie and Lindsey had (in addition to Nicks’s unique voice) was what made the band the legend it s today. It is a shame that it didn’t work out. I got the impression Stevie Kept procrastinating and the next thing she new, Lindsey became a father for someone else. Today, Lindsey is married to Kristen Messner, with 3 children.
In a YouTube Video I saw a while back, Stevie promises to her fans that the on-stage magic between Lindsey and herself will never die. It looks like she’s one of the very few who has kept her promise. As of March 2019, they’re schedule to perform in Madison Square Garden. Not sure if I can afford those tickets, but I would love to go If I can.
Madison Square Garden!
You know, although I’m happy that Stevie Still performs with the band (she kind of have to, because the bulk of their hits have been together, and that’s what fans want); I also took note of an interview she did with Rolling Stone Magazine. In essence, she explains that she would never do another album with the band, because she feels it would not make any money. She said she’d rather tour with the band rather than spending time and more money creating an album. I’m not sure if I agree with that! The reason is, they’re not some hasbeen band trying to revitalize their career. They’re a very well known and respected band. Fans would buy their music just to have it as a collector’s item. That’s my opinion.
Damn! I forgot about these guys!! Recently, I was watching some old music videos on cable and A-Ha popped up! Man! I remember watching them on MTV, when MTV was just starting out!! I still have the 45rpm somewhere at home. Their song “Take On Me,” was released in 1985, and became their only #1 hit in their career. It was an extremely popular & catchy pop song. I think their song was the first pop record I ever purchased (I think). According to The Billboards, there was another song they produced that reached #20, but I personally didn’t like it. I don’t know, maybe some of my readers remember it. The song is called “The Sun Always Shines On T.V.“
