In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the Fleetwood Mac star has revealed that she still feels a close connection to the deceased Icon, Prince.
Stevie Nick’s is about to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for the second time as a solo artist she spoke to the NME about their friendship.
The singer regrets that she never shared a stage with Prince before his death, saying “we all think we’re immortal”. She mentions that before a performance if she felt nervous, she would talk to Prince.
Nicks goes on to say,
“In my solo act, when I do ‘Moonlight’, I wear this white wolfy coat — I put this coat on and I try to transform into a Dire Wolf from Game of Thrones. And before I go on, I always say, ‘Walk with me, Prince.’”
Commenting on their relationship, she says they were “strange friends” and recalled how her single ‘Stand Black’ was inspired by his song, ‘Little Red Corvette.’ She remembers Prince attending her Sunset Sound Studio to hear and play on that song.
Stevie Nicks described it as “a great blessing” to receive the Rock and Roll Hall of fame honour. She said that to be recognised as a solo artist after playing in bands for so many years has brought a smile to her face.
Other nominees inducted this year include Radiohead, Janet Jackson, The Cure, Roxy Music, Def Leppard, and the Zombies.
