    Default Glenn and Stevie Nicks

    No, they didn't sleep together (that I know of!) But, since Stevie's my girl, I did a quick search and came up with a couple quotes from her about him. Both are from 1981.


    ------------------------


    But despite the group's unprecedented success and the easing of tension among its members, Nicks confides that, for her, real professional satisfaction has come only through her solo effort. She claims that Bella Donna marks the first time she's received recognition from L.A.'s songwriting pantheon. "I have striven to live up to the songwriting of [the Eagles'] Don Henley and Glenn Frey, Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell," she says. "I learned a long time ago that I'd have to work very hard to get even a blink from any of them, not as a woman or a performer, but as a writer. To have Don sing on this album was the greatest compliment anybody could give me, and it took six years for it to happen.

    "I knew Don thought I'd never be strong enough to break away from Fleetwood Mac even for a minute because they so completely wrapped up my life," Nicks allows. Her sensitivity to Henley's opinion is understandable; they had a brief romance after her breakup with Buckingham.

    At the time, Eagle Glenn Frey accused her of being spoiled. The memory of that makes her bristle. "He knew I was in Fleetwood Mac; I wasn't exactly chopped liver," Nicks retorts. "I never forgot it. I thought, 'How dare they think I'm so shallow that I'm hanging around with a rock star because I have nothing else to do!'"

    In this next one, Stevie is more forgiving! (HT = High Times Magazine). She ironically calls him "witchy" in it!


    HT: What about [a relationship with] someone like Don Henley, who knows [what your lifestyle is like]? He's in the same position.

    SN: When I was going out with Don, it was five years ago and I was much less busy. Fleetwood Mac was much less popular, we were just beginning. When I was with Lindsey, we lived together and were famous. It was the opposite extreme. I'll never forget the day I was up at Don's house having dinner with him and his manager, Irving Azoff, who is now my manager five years later, and Glenn Frey of the Eagles walked in and looked at me and said, "Spoiled yet," like no mention of Fleetwood Mac. I was not even in the league of a singer. I was nothing more than a girl. My claws went out and I wanted to get out of there.

    HT: I don't know him well, but that sounds typical of Glenn Frey.

    SN: He's witchy! And I love Glenn and that was a long time ago. That was my first taste of what it was like to be a happening girl rock 'n roll singer and have people not relate to me like I even had a job. I went out with John David Souther for a while, who is cute and wonderful but very Texas and I found when I was with him, I didn't mention Fleetwood Mac ever. It didn't help my status with the man to bring up anything I did, so I didn't. And then you start saying, "But I work too. I'm happening. I write songs, but you aren't giving me a break."

    LOL... "Ooo-oooh, Witchy Glenn..."

    Poor Stevie! At least she definitely was much more forgiving in that second one... I wonder, though, since there's that picture of her wearing the No Fun Aloud T-shirt...I'm guessing they eventually became friends!


    ~*She'll always be...the girl from yesterday...*~

    My friend and I: "Nice coat Glenn!"
    Joe Walsh, at next pause between songs: "Hey, nice coat, Glenn."
    Glenn: "Thanks, thanks...yah, I picked this up at the..Liberace garage sale, glad you like it..."

    Bree, I knew you would reply to this!

    When do you think the Halloween photo was taken? I couldn't decide whether it was 1981 when she was working with Don or 1983 when she was in a relationship with Joe, so I put it with the 1982 photos, lol.

    LOL yep...didn't notice it yesterday but I did today, and of course I had to reply!! Maybe Glenn was just jealous...after all, she did sleep with half his band, except, to our knowledge, him. LOL!

    I think that pic is so hilarious! Hm...I think 1982 might actually be right on, haha...or 1983. I don't think it was 1981 because isn't that when Robin passed away? October '81? Or was it 1982? Oh man, now that's going to bug me...

    I think it's very fitting, in light of her calling Glenn "witchy", that she's wearing a witch's hat with that shirt.

    Well, eventually, she slept with not only Don and Joe, but also Glenn's good friend JD Souther. There's those rumors of course, but she's never named any other names. hmmm! lol

    Oh, I just realized I didn't answer your question about Robin passing away. She passed away October 12, 1982.

    Right right...I knew it was October, just completely blanked out on the year. I'm not sure then...hmmm...I still think I'm going with 1983...for some reason it just strikes me as a slightly later photo?

    LOL at the JD Souther thing...that's right, him too...dear Lord. He was probably like, "Okay, all my friends, but not me? What's so wrong with me?!"
