Stevie Nicks: 24 Karat Words from the Road

To celebrate another year of Stevie Nicks our staff photographer has scoured through her photo archives and found some favorite quotes and unshared photos from the road. These photos and quotes are from the “24K Gold” tour and Fleetwood Mac’s “On With the Show” tour.

“If you believe in something and you believe you could do something great…Don’t ever let anybody get in your way and don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t do it because that’s a lie.

“Reach out and take it”
“We did it and you can do it too. It is all out there. You just have to reach out and take it.”

“Not a fluke”
“I was not having it. I was not going to be the worlds biggest fluke!“ – On continuing her solo career after the success of “Bella Donna”

“Exactly the same”
“When I look down it looks exactly like it did 35 years ago. My boots and the cape. Exactly the same”

“That’s why you have me”
“I’m going to chronicle it, I’m going to be a reporter, I’m going to be an archivist because in my life I have realized time passes and things just pass away and you forget stuff that you shouldn’t forget. That’s why you have people like me to write stuff about this down so it doesn’t just fade away.”

“That’s why I do this”
“The song saved my life in a lot of ways. It brought that amazing emotion out of me that as a writer I love. That’s why I do this.”  – On the song “Moonlight”

“This is for me now”
“I don’t care if anybody buys my records or not. This is for me now. At my age I am writing for me and I am having a wonderful time writing songs for my own personal love of just sitting at the piano and creating something. Even if just a few of you love it, that is all I need.”

“Sometimes crazy is good”
“Sometimes crazy is good. Wild heart came out incredibly crazy and I loved it.”

“It was just a dream”
“They saw a girl who believed in herself. What I want to tell you is that it was just a dream. It was just a dream but I believed in it.”

“You can’t do that”
“You can’t do that. It’s a Prince song.”
“Oh no I am doing it. It’s happening right now.”
– on being told she couldn’t write “Stand Back” to Prince’s song

“My purple guardian angel”
“I feel now that he is gone he is up there worrying about me and he always will be. He is like my purple guardian angel forever.” – On Prince

“You can do anything you want”
“You’re are special and you are beautiful and you can do anything you want. And Girls don’t let anybody get in your way. Not while I’m around.” 

“Dance into the night”
“That is family. That is what family does. They let people like me just dance into the night and try to bring some entertainment and some love into your life…and some fun and a little bit of wisdom of 68 years.” – on her fans and audience
