Rolling Stone recently sat down for lunch with Stevie Nicks. And all they can give us is this lame two paragraph write-up:
(Read the whole, whopping three paragraph, article here.)
But it was truly awesome to rap about "Silver Springs," an amazing track that was left off Rumours. The song is about her breakup with Buckingham -- "I'll follow you down till the sound of my voice will haunt you," she sings. "It was me realizing that Lindsey was going to haunt me for the rest of my life," she says. "And he has."
When she performs "Silver Springs" these days -- it's the final number on Fleetwood Mac's current tour -- Nicks resists the opportunity to get up in Lindsey's face: "I don't want fans to walk away in the middle of our argument."
If you check out the comments on the article, someone actually asked whether or not they were playing "Dreams" on this tour... are you kiddin' me?! When have they NOT played "Dreams"? That's a better question to ask.
And since when is that line from SS about Lindsey haunting her? I thought it was the other way around... I think Mama is getting all mixed up in her head. But it doesn't really matter - she's almost 61 and still belting 'em out.
Oh, and P.S., I think fans are still intrigued in their behavior (a la "The Dance" tour) and would thoroughly enjoy S&L's "argument" at the end of the night.

About Classic rock girl!
I'm a college student who grew up two decades too late and missed out on some fantastic music. I relive those years through this blog, by talking about anything and everything rock music related from the '60s, '70s, and '80s-- with some of "today's" music thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!
