"Stephanie Lynn "Stevie" Nicks" (born May 26, 1948 in Phoenix, Arizona) is an American singer and songwriter, best known for her work with Fleetwood Mac and a long solo career. She is one of the few rock artists to maintain a solo career while remaining a member of a successful band.
Nicks' mother fostered in her a love for fairy tales, while her grandfather, struggling country singer, taught her to sing at the age of four. With her first guitar, at the age of sixteen, she wrote her first song called "I've Loved and I've Lost."
Nicks first met her future musical and romantic partner Lindsey Buckingham while attending Menlo Atherton High School. A few years later the two crossed paths again. Buckingham remembered Nicks' voice, and along with Javier Pacheco and Calvin Roper they formed a band called Fritz which became popular as a live act from 1968 until 1972. They were the opening act for, among others, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. Both Nicks and Buckingham are graduates of San Jose State University in Northern California.
After the band parted, Nicks and Buckingham continued writing and recording as a duo, releasing the album ''Buckingham Nicks'' in 1973. ...
