Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac, 1975, by Fin Costello. Invalidating your arguments with her bangs for over 40 years.

I found this photo while looking for more information on an earlier photo of Stevie and George that I reblogged from @musicrunsthroughmysoul, along with this amazing story from Stevie, via Fleetwood Mac News:

“The photo was taken by my best friend, Mary (DeVitto),” Stevie explains. “She had given me a copy of it a long time ago, and I had it made into an 8 x 10 and put in a little frame. When I go on the road it goes right on my makeup mirror, so before I go on stage, whether it’s with Fleetwood Mac or me in my solo career, the three of us are looking back at me and that has been my inspiration every single night. 

There’s lots of nights where you kind of go, I wish I didn’t have to go on stage tonight, I’m tired, I don’t feel like doing it, and I look at George Harrison and look at Longhi and look at me and I go, well, you just have to, because it’s important, it’s important to make people happy, so get out of your chair, put on your boots and go out there and do your thing.”

The two musicians were having fun coming up with lyrics together in Hana. “We were writing a sort of parody of ‘Here Comes the Sun,’ but we were writing ‘Here Comes the Moon’,” she continues. “Longhi was saying, ‘you guys are writing about the moon instead of the sun,’ and I said, that’s because by then we were all such night birds.

“I had met George before that at a record party in Mexico in Acapulco for ‘Rumours.’ Longhi saw George all the time. He drove me and my friend Sara and Mary to George’s house in Hana. And we just hung out and wrote and sang and talked. I had been famous for not even quite three years and we were talking with George about being famous and what it meant and what you had to give up.”

And here’s “Here Comes The Moon”, a song you might have missed, but truly shouldn’t! From his 1979 album, George Harrison.

We felt like, together, we were a force of nature, And we made a pact, probably in our first rehearsal, that we would never accept being treated as second-class citizens in the music business. That when we walked into a room we would be so fantastic and so strong and so smart that none of the uber-rockstar group of men would look through us. And they never did.
