Stevie Interviewed for Rolling Stone's "Smoking Section"
It still gives me goose bumps and it still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up," says Stevie Nicks, who is eagerly anticipating the first Fleetwood Mac tour in five years, which kicks off March 1st in Pittsburgh. Nicks tell the Smoking Section that fans can count on renditions of "Gold Dust Woman", "Rhiannon", "Monday Morning" and "Dreams," but the rest of the set has yet to be hammered out. (For what it's worth, we request "World Turning.") "It's pretty easy to choose when there's such a great vault to pick from," she says. Nicks is also thrilled with her two solo releases, out in March. One is The Soundstage Sessions, a CD featuring live versions of some lesser-known jams, and an orchestral version of "Landslide." The other is a DVD called Live In Chicago, where she mixes Mac classics, solo hits and a few covers, including Dave Matthews Band's "Crash Into Me." "I think I did the song justice," she says. "I'd like to do a record where I take boys' songs and twist them into women's songs." Look out.
