Book Overview
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER All you ever wanted to know about Fleetwood Mac's mesmerizing frontwoman. - People Magazine Davis is astute and respectful...adept in his literary analysis. - The New York Times Book Review Stevie Nicks is a legend of rock, but her energy and magnetism sparked new interest in this icon. She's one of the most glamorous creatures rock has known, and the rare woman who's a real rock 'n' roller. Gold Dust Woman gives the gold standard of rock biographers ( The Boston Globe ) his ideal topic: Nicks' work and life are equally sexy and interesting, and Davis delves deeply into each, unearthing fresh details from new, intimate interviews and interpreting them to present a rich new portrait of the star. Just as Nicks (and Lindsey Buckingham) gave Fleetwood Mac the shot of adrenaline they needed to become real rock stars--according to Christine McVie--Gold Dust Woman is vibrant with stories and with a life lived large and hard: --How Nicks and Buckingham were asked to join Fleetwood Mac and how they turned the band into stars --The affairs that informed Nicks' greatest songs --Her relationships with the Eagles' Don Henley and Joe Walsh, and with Fleetwood himself --Why Nicks married her best friend's widower --Her dependency on cocaine, drinking and pot, but how it was a decade-long addiction to Klonopin that almost killed her -- Nicks' successful solo career that has her still performing in venues like Madison Square Garden --The cult of Nicks and its extension to chart-toppers like Taylor Swift and the Dixie Chicks
