Publisher's Summary

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 Lindsay 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

Amazing Story

Very well performed by the narrator and covered all the drama involving Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac. Went into a YouTube warp Glinda back and listening to all the old songs and live concert performances.

Wow!

A candid and open biography on the life of Stevie Nicks. Some of the material in this book cross reference easily with the books “Storms” by Carol Ann Harris on her life with Lindsey Buckingham and Fleetwood Mac, and Making Rumours by Ken Callait. So a lot of the information I’d heard through reading these aforementioned books. However there were quotes from interviews I’d never heard so it offers a pretty darn good mix of information. I found it to be wistful, and tragic and triumphant at the same time because that’s what her life was. She’s a trooper! 5 stars all around!
