Stevie Nicks a Game of Thrones fan? Be still my fast-food-and-stress-filled heart.
In a recent interview, Stevie Nicks spoke about recovering from two sicknesses: pneumonia and the death of her mother. What was it that got the Fleetwood Mac star through the multitudes of pain? GoT.
“And then I got pneumonia,” she told the Herald Scotland. “With my pneumonia and my mother’s death I watched the entire first season of Game of Thrones — so that was great! That certainly took my mind off everything.”
To be honest, watching horrible violence and sex on television takes my mind off everything too.
The Herald Scotland continued, asking if she were a Game of Thrones fan.
“Yes!” Nicks replied. “The author [George R.R. Martin] is my age and it blows my mind that he’s able to create this vast, interlinked world. As a songwriter I write little movies. But I can’t imagine sitting down and writing even one small book. But then probably somebody like him couldn’t imagine writing ‘Edge Of Seventeen’ or ‘Rhiannon’ – couldn’t write a whole little life in two verses and a chorus. And of course I would love to write some music for Game of Thrones. I’ve written a bunch of poetry about it – one for each of the characters. On Jon Snow… On Arya… On Cersei and Jaime.”
Stevie Nicks didn’t only nerd out. She also talked about the Fleetwood Mac EP released earlier in the year, how their 2013 tour has been going, drugs and a multitude of other things.
One of my favorite parts of the interview is when Nicks’ comments about joining Fleetwood Mac: “I knew from the beginning, when Lindsey and I joined Fleetwood Mac, that Christine [McVie] and I had to really stand our ground. And we had to be a force of nature. Or we would be considered second-class rock stars.”
Talking about her past relationship with Prince, she said, “He would bring me cough medicine when I was sick and then I’d ask for another spoon of it, and he’d go, ‘I didn’t come here to start you on a new drug!’ So I realized that that was not gonna work out. We’re two really famous rock’n'roll stars, and I’m a drug addict, and he’s not, so these paths are not gonna meet ever well.”
Not everything is meant to be, I guess.
