Lindsey snorkeling in what I am thinking is Hanalei Bay, Hawaii. I think he is trying to tell me that a rather large dorsal fin, belonging to perhaps Moby Dick or Jaws, is closing in on me rather quickly from behind. (Wow, Moby Dick closing in on me from behind, I know what you are thinking and don’t go there!) I believe I kept yelling back to him, what?, what? I have water in my ears, let me first attach this bloody fish I just speared on my waist band. Lol.
“So many of these songs are about me and Lindsey moving to L.A. in 1971, asking each other, “Now what? Should we go back to San Francisco? Should we quit?” We were scared kids in this big, huge, flat city where we had no friends and no money. I believe Lindsey and I would have made it if we’d stayed in San Francisco. He does too.”Stevie Nicks, Rolling Stone, 2014.
When you come back to your hotel, and you’ve been in front of fifteen thousand people… I would like to sit down in the audience and talk to them about what’s happened. Bring like a podium up and ask questions and have everybody tell me what they think. It’s very hard to just walk away from them. You certainly don’t go to sleep; you can’t. It’s like falling in love with somebody and having yourself turn into a pumpkin and you’re back mopping the floor. That’s the hardest thing-all that energy around you and walking away from it. You have much less than they do because you come back to a motel, they go home. If I could go home after every concert and have my puppies and my cats and my friends, whoever, it wouldn’t be so difficult. To go back by myself to a hotel room is a real downer.
I believe this to be a young Amy Fleetwood, Mick’s eldest daughter, in the arms of Stevie Nicks. This picture captures a moment of solitude, while flying on the band’s tour plane. In answer to one of our follower’s questions, yes, I believe she would’ve made a good mother & this picture serves us an example of that.
At the end of every Fleetwood Mac tour we would have an official photo taken of everybody, band & crew. I believe this one to be the “Tusk Tour Photo” There are too many to name (they all have my deep respect) but notice Stevie sitting next to her brother Chris Nicks & Robin Anderson sitting in front. You can also see the look on everyone’s face of relief, as the long tour was drawing to a close.
Special tribute to Don Fox (Tour Promoter) & Tom Ross (CAA agent whom the band worked with for years on booking the shows.)
