"Just Like The White Winged Dove"

One can't understand how excited I was when I learned that Stevie Nicks, the Queen of RocknRoll, is releasing a dvd/cd compilation of her best hits, all reworked. Maybe you can tell how excited I am when you see that I photographed her album covers! I'm a weirdo, but remember, I have such little else :)

Songs like Landslide, Gypsy, Stop Dragging My Heart Around, Dreams, Stand Back, Gold Dust Woman, Whenever You Need A Friend, Sara and Silver Springs helped Stevie sell tens of millions of cds. So why do I love this beautiful and talented individual so much?? I don't know to be honest. I remember as a teenager finding her album among my sister's collection. I think she was between Meatloaf and The Doors! I love her song writing and her mysterious stage performance. You know the movie Misery? Where the woman is the main character and she is the biggest fan of the writer..and she hobbles him so that he can't get away?? Ha...Tell Stevie never to come to my house!!

As an old foggie I thought Stevie Nicks was a guy .. I have heard Stand Back..Do you know if there are any tapes around.. ?

Only if you were the person she "hobbled" to keep close, the movie would be called "Bliss"! Everyone has certain things in life they'd hate to live without; yours just happens to be Stevie!
