Wild-hearted, beautiful singer-songwriter, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Stevie Nicks[/lastfm], turns 63-years-old today. One of our favorite female vocalists and a style icon with her flowy, gypsy garb, Nicks still evokes the same ethereal energy she did when she was just an experience hungry young singer in [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Fleetwood Mac[/lastfm].
To celebrate Nicks’ birthday, we’ve curated our Top Ten Songs Sung By Stevie Nicks from both her extensive solo career and time with Fleetwood Mac.
“Gypsy” could be considered a pre-Fleetwood Mac autobiographical tune for Nicks; she wrote the song about her life before Fleetwood Mac and her gypsy life sleeping on small mattresses with Lindsay Buckingham “on the floor.”
She also name checks a San Francisco clothing store called the Velvet Underground.
