‘Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams’: Documentary goes behind the scenes with iconic rocker
Stevie Nicks has been in the news lately, thanks to her upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fans will honor that achievement, along with her music, at a screening of the documentary, “Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams,” at Fairfield Theatre Company’s StageOne on Tuesday, March 26.
The singer/songwriter, who wrote her first song at 15, is known around the world for her years with Fleetwood Mac. Now, at 70, she’s also known for her successful solo career. “Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams” looks at some of her later work, but also includes a little footage of her old band mates, Mick Fleetwood and Lindsey Buckingham.
“In 2010 Nicks embarked on the recording of a new solo album, ‘In Your Dreams,’ produced by former Eurythmics mastermind Dave Stewart,” the theater said of the film. “With cameras in tow, documentarian Stewart and diva Nicks set up shop in her home studio and reveal their collaborative creative process. Shifting dynamically among video formats, painstaking recording sessions and revealing interviews, this magic-tinged musical journey is a loving and tuneful portrait of the eternally bewitching Gold Dust Woman.”
Nicks was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (as a member of Fleetwood Mac) in 1998. When she is inducted on Friday, March 29, she’ll become the first woman to get in as a member of a group and for her own solo career.
Fun fact: The Arizona native was only in her 20s when she wrote “Landslide,” which explores feelings about growing older. The tune was first featured on the 1975 album, “Fleetwood Mac.” Nicks has said she’s constantly inspired with ideas for songs.
