Is that you think of your onstage persona? The black witch?

Oh yes, I’m very witchy onstage, that’s how everyone thinks of me. I have sparkles round my eyes that look like tears… it’s really fun. I’ve got my top hat, I do tap, I love performing. If I’d have been born 50 years ago, I’d have definitely been in Vaudeville.”

Rumours Tour, Berkeley Community Theater, 1977.

Maybe you love Stevie Nicks for her aesthetic …

Maybe you love Stevie Nicks for her aesthetic or what she stands for, and maybe you love the gentle, mid-tempo “Rhiannon” as released in 1975, but until you’ve seen her light it on fire in concert mid-70s style, you don’t really know what “rock and roll witch” is all about. And I don’t mean that in a diminutive or aesthetic sense, either. Something supernatural is afoot here. Prepare to be transformed.

(Also a lovely piano solo from Chrstine McVie before Stevie takes a torch to the thing.)
