Stevie Nicks

Stephanie Lynn "Stevie" Nicks (born May 26, 1948) is an American singer-songwriter, best known for her work with Fleetwood Mac and an extensive solo career, which collectively have produced over forty Top 50 hits and sold over 140 million albums. She was deemed "The Reigning Queen of Rock and Roll" and one of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time" by Rolling Stone, and, as a member of Fleetwood Mac, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. As a solo artist, she has garnered eight Grammy Award nominations and, with Fleetwood Mac, a further five.

Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac in 1974, along with her partner Lindsey Buckingham. Fleetwood Mac's second album after the incorporation of Nicks and Buckingham, Rumours, released in 1977, is the tenth best-selling album of all time, having sold over 40 million copies worldwide and remaining at No.1 on the American albums chart for 31 weeks, as well as reaching the top spot in various countries worldwide. The album won the Album of the Year in 1978 and produced four US Top 10 singles, with Nicks' "Dreams" being the band's first and only US number one hit.

Nicks began her solo career in 1981 with the 8 million selling album Bella Donna and has produced seven more solo studio albums to date, her most recent entitled In Your Dreams and released on May 3, 2011. Having overcome cocaine addiction and dependency on tranquilizers, Nicks remains a popular solo performer. Nicks is known for her distinctive voice, mystical visual style, and symbolic lyrics, as well as the famous (sometimes tense) chemistry between herself and former boyfriend and guitarist/vocalist in Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham.
