If you’re a book-lover, that’s perfect. If you’re a Fleetwood Mac fan too, you deserve a medal.
The Queen of Rock and Roll herself, Stevie Nicks, takes the stage as the lead role for Stephen Davis’ new book. Gold Dust Woman: The Biography of Stevie Nicks is a title that holds all things mystical, earthy, and downright timeless. She’s inspired generations of fans not only with her music but her iconic style and aura. Perhaps moon pendants, flowing shawls, jewels, and fringe sound familiar?
Stephen Davis previously co-wrote Fleetwood: My Life and Adventures in Fleetwood Mac with Mick Fleetwood, and his familiarity with the British-American rock band, founded in 1967, runs as deep as their roots in the music industry. However, Davis’ focus here is Nicks, along with her friends, family, relationships, life in the music industry, and joining of Fleetwood Mac.

As a music journalist and historian, he’s written hit biographies for Aerosmith, Led Zepplin, Carly Simon, Bob Marley, Guns ‘N Roses, Jim Morrison, and countless other artists. Those sound familiar right? Third off, Stevie Nicks has begun to resurface for a new and younger generation. It seems the Millennials love to bring back certain styles, and Nicks’ wasn’t going unnoticed. Her goddess-like femininity, enchanting layers of flowy fabrics, and striking gems and chokers create an ethereal look that breaks the mold. Every. Time. She brought boho to life; its strength and celestiality personified.
Her career with Fleetwood Mac, as well as her solo career, has given her the kind of success that allowed her to leave a mark on music history with a distinct voice. Now, Davis brings her to us all over again in the must-have Fall novel of 2017. To say we’re excited is an understatement. Maybe we’ll even be lucky enough to hear from the front woman herself!
