3.0 A Brief Biography
Stephanie Lynn Nicks was born to Barbara and Jess Seth Nicks on
May 26, 1948 at Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, AZ. Jess was a
Corporate President. Barbara was a housewife and was protective of
her daughter. She was kept inside much of the time, and Barbara would
read fairy tales to little Stephanie. Stephanie had trouble
pronouncing her name, so she called herself Stevie.
At the age of four she sang country songs with her grandfather,
Aaron Jess Nicks, including Goldie Hill & Red Sovine's "Are You
Mine." Stevie was close to her grandfather, and he had an influence
on her choosing music as a career path. AJ lived out of two trailers
in the Arizona mountains. He played guitar, fiddle, and harmonica. He
took freight trains all over, and was a pool shark.
Stevie's brother Chris was born when she was five. Due to Jess'
career changes, the family moved quite often.
In 1965 Stevie was a sophomore at Arcadia High School in Los
Angeles CA, where she had just joined her first band, The Changing
Times, a folk outfit. Then in 1966 the family moved to Atherton CA,
where she attended Menlo-Atherton High School for junior and senior
years, and met Lindsey Buckingham, who was a sophomore.
In the Fall of 1966, The Fritz Raybyne Memorial Band was formed,
named after a fellow classmate at Menlo-Atherton High.
Fritz -- Stevie, Brian Kane, Bob Aguirre, Javier Pacheco, and
Lindsey Buckingham -- got their start playing current Top 40 cover
tunes at dances held at their own high school. The band rehearsed
in Lindsey's garage. In the early days Stevie would play guitar on
her own country flavored tunes, "Where Was I," and "Funny Kind
of Love." The on-stage theatricality she displayed in covering
Buffy Saint Marie's "Codeine" would foreshadow later performances
of "Rhiannon." Intertwining her voice with Lindsey's was fine tuned
by performing renditions of Ray Charles' "Georgia."
In 1968 her family moved to Chicago, and Stevie stayed behind
in California. She attended Canada Junior College in Redwood City CA
for two years, and San Jose State University for three years, but quit
S.J. State just short of receiving a degree in Speech Communication
after five years of college. She had planned on becoming an English
teacher. Instead, she transitioned into a professional musician.
With the help of upstart booking agent David Forest, Fritz soon
progressed from playing high school dances to playing Stanford
fraternity parties, Bay Area community colleges Caņada and
De Anza, and Winterland and Fillmore West. On July 12 1970,
Fritz opened for Janis Joplin at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds,
and Stevie met her idol at that time. Janis would be gone
three months later.
In 1973 Stevie, Lindsey, Richard Dashut, and Tom Moncrieff
shared a house in Los Angeles. During these lean times, Stevie worked
for one day as dental assistant, was a waitress at Copper Penny,
Clementine's (a Beverly Hills singles restaurant), was a hostess at
Bob's Big Boy, and did housekeeping for her record producer, Keith
Olsen. Lindsey did some phone sales, but mostly sat around the
house practicing his guitar. Stevie's first recorded music can be
heard on "Buckingham Nicks," released in 1973.
Then, on New Year's Eve 1974, a fateful phone call came that
would change Stevie's life forever. It was Mick Fleetwood, drummer
for the band Fleetwood Mac. He had heard Stevie and Lindsey's
"Frozen Love" at Sound City recording studios, and was impressed by
the guitarist, a position that needed filling in his current band.
Mick asked Stevie and Lindsey to join Fleetwood Mac, and no audition
was required. For 15 years, from 1975 to 1990, Stevie Nicks sang lead
for Fleetwood Mac.
Stevie parted ways with Fleetwood Mac from 90-97. She had
left the band over a disagreement with Mick over rights to the song
"Silver Springs," which she wrote intending royalties to be funneled
to her mother. Mick had refused to allow Stevie to release "Silver
Springs" on her 1991 Greatest Hits collection, "TimeSpace."
The band reconciled for one gig, to play "Don't Stop" for President
Clinton's inauguration celebration on January 19, 1993.
In 1997, Stevie rejoined Fleetwood Mac for "The Dance" television
special and tour.
Stevie has concurrently had a successful recording and touring
career as a solo act beginning in 1981, and continuing to this day.
4.1 Q: Where can I find a discography for Stevie Nicks?
A: For a complete discography, please consult:
4.2 Q: Where can I find lyrics to Stevie's songs?
4.3 Q: Who is Rhiannon?
A: Rhiannon is a figure in Welsh mythology. The Mabinogion, a
book of Welsh mythology, is loosely translated by Evangeline Walton,
a fantasy novelist, in the four books: "Prince of Anwyn,"
The Children Of Lyr," "The Song of Rhiannon," and "The Island of
Rhiannon is a horse goddess and the "maker of birds," and the legend
of the song of the birds of Rhiannon goes as follows: In times of
hardship or pain, the song of the birds can be heard. Down the
pathway will come three singing birds, one snow white, one emerald
green, and one golden. The song of the birds will put you to sleep,
and when you awaken, all hardship and pain will be gone.
Stevie wrote the song "Rhiannon" in October 1974, after reading
a novel by Mary Leader called "Triad" (Putnam, 2-73, ISBN:
069810496X). The novel featured a heroine by the name of Rhiannon.
Stevie was not aware of the legend at the time she wrote the song.
4.4 Q: Who is "Emmiline," in "Seven Wonders?"
A: This song was written by Sandy Stewart. Sandy's demo had the
lyrics "you held the line," but Stevie heard it as "Emmiline."
As to who or where Emmiline is, Stevie has been quoted as saying
that she made it up.
4.5 Q: What words are Stevie screaming in "No Spoken Word" on the
Red Rocks video?
A: "I don't know how to learn, not from the pages, not
from a book!"
4.6 Q: I heard there was a lawsuit about "Sara?"
A: In 1980, Carol L. Hinton of Rockford MI sued Stevie for the
rights to "Sara," claiming she'd submitted the lyrics to Warner
Brothers in November 1978. Stevie submitted a demo copy from
July 1978 to the Court. But to avoid a long court battle, Stevie's
attorneys settled out of court for $1500.
4.7 Q: Is "Buckingham Nicks" available on CD?
A: There is no official CD release of this title.
In December of 1995 there was a bootleg CD recording of the
vinyl release "Buckingham Nicks" available marked "copyright 1995
GEMA CAT# BN01". Another is marked "Au Revoire" and has a
close-up photo of Stevie's eye on the back. The latter is supposedly
of lesser quality than the first, but both are recorded from 22 year
old vinyl records.
There have been at least two bootleg CD versions released.
4.8 Q: I've seen a song mentioned that I've never heard of. What
album is it from?
A: Stevie has collaborated with and sung back up for many other
artists over the years. In addition, being such a prolific writer,
there are scores of her compositions that have never made it to
release. Leaked either by people she's worked with or those close
to her, the following demonstration recordings and studio outtakes

A: Amazon booksellers has listed a book published by Dolphin
Books in November 1989 ISBN 0385189877 entitled: "Wild Heart:
An Autobiographical Journey," but no other source can confirm that
such a book ever went to press.

reportedly been working on a book for some time.
There has been one unauthorized autobiography published about
Stevie, "Everything You Want to Know About Stevie Nicks" by Ethlie
Ann Vare and Ed Ochs, Ballantine Press, 1985, ISBN 0-345-32238-4.
It is out-of-print and considered to be a rare item among collectors.

close to them that they both had lost. The marriage lasted three
months. The divorce became final in April 1984. Her wedding dress was
black lace over white.
5.3 Q: Who is Robin Anderson?
A: Robin Snider (later Anderson) was Stevie's dearest friend
from the age of 15. Robin was a speech therapist and toured in 1979
with Stevie in that role. Robin suffered from leukemia and passed
away on October 12, 1982. Stevie was naturally devastated by her
passing and the effects of grievous loss became apparent in her
songwriting and performances.
5.4 Q: Is Stevie a witch?

Her most recent answer to this question, given on a Yahoo chat on

5.5 Q: Did Stevie do drugs?
A: In November 1986 Stevie spent a month at The Betty Ford
Center in Rancho Mirage CA for help overcoming a decade of cocaine

A: In the 1980s Cheryl Cusella was a Stevie Nicks impersonator
in Phoenix. She claimed she owned a limo company, and went into
the concert promotion business. Cheryl booked acts she couldn't
produce, and didn't pay the ones she did, including Mick Fleetwood's
Zoo. Cheryl was convicted of two counts of fraud in 1989, served
38 days in jail, got seven years probation and paid $32,000
in restitution. She then changed her name to Britney Marx.
Reportedly in 1990 she published a book called "Sweet Poison:
A Heartfelt Diary." Most recently in June of 1999, Britney was charged
by the Arizona state attorney general's office with six counts of
