Gold Dust Woman: A Biography of Stevie Nicks by Stephen DavisStevie Nicks is a legend of rock, but her energy and magnetism sparked new interest in this icon. At sixty-nine, shes one of the most glamorous creatures rock has known, and the rare woman whos 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 friends 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

Its no hidden fact that Stevie Nicks was in to witchcraft. They all were. I don't really know what "Gold Dust Woman" is about. I know there was cocaine there and that I fancied it gold dust, somehow. I'm going to have to go back to my journals and see if I can pull something out about "Gold Dust Woman". Because I don't really know. It's weird that I'm not quite sure.
November 22, Buckingham was the original draw, but managers were told he and Nicks came as a pair. The result was a combustible mix of personalities and talents, fueled by romantic matchups and breakups, leading to the record-breaking album "Rumours" and global stardom. Nicks later added a solo career, becoming a rock icon with her strengths and shortcomings — a raspy voice, haunting lyrics, and mystically bohemian fashions. Now 69, Nicks still performs around the world. Her eyes were red behind thick eyeglasses and she smelled of weapons-grade hairspray.

Stevie Nicks - Gold Dust Woman (Live In Chicago)
Rock on, gold dust woman Take your silver spoon and dig your grave, yeah Well, it's a heartless challenge You pick your path and then you pray. You wake up in the mornin' You see your sunrise, loves to go down Lousy lovers, they pick their prey But they never cry out loud, no, they don't cry out. Well, did she make you cry, make you break down Shatter your illusions of love? Is it over now? Do you know how?
