The incomparable Stevie Nicks thrilled fans (including more than a few gay men) at TIFF Bell Lightbox ahead of the Canadian premiere of her new documentary, In Your Dreams. The doc, created with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, takes a behind-the-scenes look at the making of her 2011 album of the same name.
Nicks is also playing a Fleetwood Mac gig on April 16 at the Air Canada Centre. Fleetwood Mac hit the big time in the 1970s; the group’s 1977 album, Rumours, had four number-one hits, including “You Make Loving Fun,” “Go Your Own Way” and “Don’t Stop.”
Nicks has maintained a rock-star status through the years and has had a successful solo career with such hits as “Edge of Seventeen” and “Stand Back.” A recent episode of Glee introduced a new generation to Nicks and Fleetwood Mac.
In the below video interview with Xtra, Nicks talks about today’s music industry, including her favourite new artist. The documentary In Your Dreams screens at TIFF April 16 to 18.
