Exclusive: Stevie Nicks Shares Kiddie Music Memory
By David Weiner
What are Stevie Nicks' earliest music memories? The legendary Grammy winner and Fleetwood Mac songstress taps into her roots and songwriting inspiration in her intimate new documentary In Your Dreams, and we have an exclusive clip!
"My one music memory that I actually have was when my parents moved from Phoenix to Los Angeles when I was about three; my dad bought a bar and my mom cooked for it," Stevie tells Dave Stewart, whom she collaborated with on her new album. "My granddad and I would sit and he would put me up on the table and he'd sing and I would kind of tap dance, even though I didn't really know I was tap dancing, and I would kind of sing."
Featuring many great candid moments and as treasure trove of photos from Stevie's youth, In Your Dreams chronicles the musical journey in making the critically acclaimed album In Your Dreams with the former Eurythmics star, which Stevie called "the greatest year of my life" and a joyful experience like "the day the circus came to town." The normally semi-reclusive Stevie allowed cameras inside her magical old mansion high atop the hills of L.A. for the doc with a wild cast of musicians and friends, including Mick Fleetwood and Reese Witherspoon.
