Brackett, Donald Fleetwood Mac: 40 Years of Creative Chaos. Greenwood Publishing Group. Just knowing these basics was intriguing enough to want to delve into this tome for further knowledge of Ms. I wasn't disappointed. This book traces Nicks' childhood where her musician Grandfather A.

Creating opportunities for everyone to experience the arts

Nicks inspired her to sing and accompany him on his Country music travels. Stevie soon realized that music was her passion, which was ignited by a chance meeting in a church hall with Lindsey Buckingham. Such is the charming beginning of Ms. Nicks' foray into her decades long and illustrious music career. The author draws upon two books quite often for first-hand accounts: One being a tell-all from Lindsey Buckingham's girlfriend post Nicks breakup, the other from drummer Mick Fleetwood's autobiography.

We learn about Stevie's relationships with several famous musicians, her well-intentioned short-lived marriage, as well as her tendency to fall in love with her record producers. The author paints an honest picture of an exceptionally talented woman, who becomes famous and gets drawn into the accepted drug culture that the music recording environment at the time promoted.

One can understand and sympathise with her descent into this behavior and also applaud her eventual recovery from it. There is an extensive repertoire of Stevie Nicks' songs, of which their origins are explained in great detail. I can see her now in my mind's eye, running in black or white chiffon, blond locks flowing, to her piano to immediately pour out her soul.

Stevie's music is inspired by so much in her life that her songs must dredge up many memories. She is a very prolific writer, and often turned to Lindsey Buckingham to shape them into the final product. This also caused emotional warfare for the duo post-breakup, as they still had to endure each other's presence for the sake of the band. This book is a treasure trove of stories, history and insight on the life of Stevie Nicks, a charming subject.

I keep using that word, but perhaps "charming" is very appropriate for this woman who loves to dress up in flowing dresses, waving her ribbon-festooned tambourine, twirling around in her gold-dusted shawl and waving her hands aloft at the moon. She is the Enchantress, and we are enchanted with her. I have enjoyed reading this book and it has inspired me to read others and watch interviews with her on YouTube. She is a woman of substance and this book succeeded in telling her story.

True fans will no doubt know most of what is in this book, but for a casual fan like me , there was much new information and a few "rumors" I had heard were either confirmed or debunked. What was especially enjoyable was the background of many songs and how 3.

What was especially enjoyable was the background of many songs and how they were written along with inside information of how they were recorded. The tumultuous relationship between Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie is also well chronicled. I came out both admiring Stevie's talent and genius and feeling a little chagrined at her self-involvement. I took off 1. Also, each chapter began with bullet list of topics contained in the section which was not necessary. I did like the little "fun facts" at the end of various chapters.

When I read a detailed biography, I find myself wanting to find more information such as finding a video mentioned or listening to a particular song, and this was no exception so I took many notes for Internet searching. The author also mentioned a few little known YouTube videos that turned out to be fun to watch.

One in particular was moving. Lindsey Buckingham dedicated "Say Goodbye" to Stevie, and as they sang a duet there was a point where Stevie was crying so hard she couldn't sing. Until Stevie writes her own memoir and she admits if she does it won't be until everyone is too old to care, or--as I heard--Lindsey Buckingham is gone from this world-- , this will have to do.

Rumours and Dreams – A Fleetwood Mac Tribute Concert

I had no idea this book existed until I stumbled across it at my local library. Let that be a lesson--never stop trolling your favorite sections in the library--you may not know what you are looking for, but the library knows.. I was pretty enthralled--I have adored Stevie since I was a little 70's child--I was exposed to the radio constantly in the 70's and the second I h I will state a little caveat before I start this review--I am a Stevie Nicks fan girl. I was pretty enthralled--I have adored Stevie since I was a little 70's child--I was exposed to the radio constantly in the 70's and the second I heard her voice I was enchanted pardon the precious there..

I was done for. She has been a hero of mine for as long as I can remember. I wore out Bella Donna and Wild Heart as teenager and took her as my spirit guide. She was everything I wanted to be--witchy, beautiful, romantic, embraced by the past As you can imagine, I was as wary as I was excited to find this book. I wanted to know truths but did not want to have my bubble burst. I need not have worried. The Stevie within these pages lives up to everything I adored as a girl and everything I admire as a grown woman.

First the writing--I really loved Zoe Howe's style--the biography is clearly a type of book that has been done. It is still one of my most favorite book genres but I often have issues with how biographies are written. They are rarely balanced enough to suit me except historical biographies--those are more often than not fairly balanced. I don't want to read a book about someone I find interesting and admirable only to have them torn down or handled with kid gloves--it's a fine line. It is also difficult to keep a book moving and encapsulate the person without over or under detailing.

Zoe Howe does all of this admirably and even adds some fun and different little touches--she's very humorous, which I would not always think was appropriate but she handled it beautifully. She manages to infuse the book with her own style despite it being non-fiction.

My biggest criticism here is a bit too much reliance on 2 books written by other authors--one a former lover of Lindsey Buckingham's his first serious girlfriend after Stevie--yeah, I doubt she has an ax to grind I was metaphorically shaking my finger at Ms. Howe when she repeated the hateful and stupid story Caillat told in that book that Stevie had "hexed" his dog because the dog got the cover of Tusk and not Stevie--and then supposedly Stevie an animal lover and dog owner herself gloated at the dog's death after it occurred. Like the rest of that book, that story is a load of hooey by a bitter and marginalized former employee.

I wish she had not repeated it. That is minor compared to what she has accomplished overall. I know a good deal about Stevie, but I learned so much. Her struggles with drugs and love are pretty well known but there is so much more to the story and a lot of that is laid out in Stevie's own words from interviews.

More Topics

I will say that bless her heart--she has loved a lot of jackasses. I understand this especially as a woman who has loved 2 musicians, and knows that jackass-ery is par for the course with that group of humans. The reasons why we love them are obvious--the reasons we put up with their mistreatment is a bit more of a mystery. Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood come off especially badly--they are both fascinating but Buckingham especially treated Stevie very badly. Fleetwood does not seem to have treated any women in his life with much respect, so Stevie is not alone here.

Two beautiful, talented and passionate people who can't live together and can't live apart--well, it's the stuff romance is made of. It has a very ugly side though--it's difficult to get the vision of Lindsey literally kicking Stevie onstage with his cowboy boots out of one's head--thank goodness Christine McVie had the good sense to slap the taste out of his mouth for that bit of excess.

Despite all that went between, they seem to have made peace with each other and their respective pasts and that is a nice thing--but Lindsey does sound like a egomaniac and is very difficult to like. Stevie's passion for her music and her strength in overcoming crippling addiction first cocaine and then klonopin and maintaining her career are two of the most admirable things about her and there are a lot of admirable things about her.

Rewinding the Charts: In 1977, Fleetwood Mac Hit No. 1 With 'Dreams'

I myself have been taking klonopin not in the doses she was, thank goodness and I am now in the midst of tapering off of that very scary and over prescribed drug myself, so I can definitely relate to how it can slowly and insidiously mess with your life. I loved the stories of her deep and loving friendships as well.

She is well known for her love and support of other female musicians and this is explored in depth. Particularly touching is her long friendship with her dear friend and inspiration Robyn. The story of their friendship and Robyn's early death is incredibly moving. Clearly, I could go on for days So, to wrap it up, this is a loving but balanced look at an amazing and ever fascinating woman. The writing is excellent and the book is well researched and includes lovely sections of pictures.

I came away more knowledgeable and just as enamored of Ms. Nicks and for that I am grateful. Highly recommend. Feb 18, Randal White rated it really liked it Shelves: biography-memoir , netgalley. This is a re-release of a book from a few years ago. I received it from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. I have always been enthralled, "bewitched", and fascinated by Stevie Nicks. From the first time I listened to Fleetwood Mac in the mid-seventies until today. That voice. That music.

And, later, to actually seeing them perform in conc Fascinating! And, later, to actually seeing them perform in concert in person. It would just fill me with a sense of wonder.

And the rumors. Of the drug use. Of the drama. Of the in-fighting. What to believe? Well, it's pretty much all laid bare in this book. I found that I just could not put it down. And it left me, at age 57, still feeling the same way about Stevie Nicks as I did when I was a teenager. Feb 15, Samantha Luce rated it really liked it. Great book about a fascinating woman. So much interesting information on the magic that is Stevie.

I can still hear the hypnotic, thumping bass of "Dreams" blaring out of a car window as I recall walking home from high school on a hot June day in the late seventies. Summer was beckoning and Fleetwood Mac's album "Rumours" ruled the radio.

I never was a huge Fleetwood Mac fan, but when "The Mac" reunited in for their magnificent concert and CD "The Dance," I was more entranced than ever with their unique and emotion-laden songs. More explosively, she even had an affair with drummer and founding Mac member Mick Fleetwood. It was in these complicated circumstances that music reigned and the band played on towards the higher purpose of music.
