Stevie Nicks is a legend of rock, but her energy and magnetism sparked new interest in this icon. At sixty-nine, she’s one of the most glamorous creatures rock has known, and the rare woman who’s a real rock ‘n’ roller.

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 Lindsey 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

He also sources the first-hand-account works by Ken Caillat, Danny Goldberg, Carol Ann Harris, and Jenny Fleetwood.But the factual…

From a die-hard Stevie Nicks fan, DO NOT BUY The first thing I noticed was in the photographs section: a photo claims to be taken in the late 80s of Stevie with her mother at the Grammys. I thought to myself: Stevie is entirely too young in this photo, but I second guessed and continued. I wanted to give the author the benefit of the doubt considering he was so highly lauded. Then I arrived to the first chapter where he couldn’t even get Stevie’s birthdate correct. I had such high hopes for this book, and had purchased it for myself as an…

Do some research!! I will not bore you with repeating what has already been written in the reviews in that mistakes and misinformation start on page one and continue to the end. Dates, names, songs, lyrics..you name it.. inaccurate! Also had very high hopes given the author but this book is terrible. If you’re a collector like me it is good to add for the collection, but if you want to learn about Stevie read “Between the Lines” or either of Mick Fleetwood’s books for real information. Oh, and to top it…
