Last Friday night, Stevie Nicks made history being the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice - first as part of Fleetwood Mac, and secondly as a standalone solo artist.
Her friend and ex-One Direction member Harry Styles gave a speech prior to her induction, where he described Stevie as a “magical gypsy godmother who occupies the in-between.”
He went on to say, “She’s so wise and serene. She sees all the romance and the drama in the world and she celebrates it. She will stand on stage introducing a song, telling you how she wrote them — honestly — like you’re the only other person in the world. You’re more than a fan. You are a friend. And the words say in so many ways: I understand you and you are not alone. And that is true Stevie.”
“She is more than a role model — she’s a beacon to all of us. Whenever you hear her voice, life gets a little bit better. When she sings, the world is hers, and it is yours. She is everything you’ve ever wanted in a lady, in a lover, in a friend.”
Watch Styles’ full speech:
Following his speech, Nicks went on to perform four songs for her performance - opening with ‘Stand Back’, before being joined by Eagles star Don Henley for ‘Leather and Lace’.
Harry Styles then appeared to perform ‘Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around’ with Nicks, the classic song which originally featured Nicks and Tom Petty, who co-wrote the song.
She then closed out the show with ‘Edge Of Seventeen’, just one of her many hit songs from the 1981 album ‘Bella Donna’.
The rest of Fleetwood Mac joined Nicks at the ceremony red carpet, plus touring member Neil Finn was there too!
