You may not know her name, but you likely know Stevie Nicks’ voice. Both as the lead singer of Fleetwood Mac and during her solo career, Nicks has influenced artists as diverse as Joe Walsh, Vanessa Carlton, and Sheryl Crow.
Nicks was once the lead singer of the band Fleetwood Mac, which is now defunct. The band was born in London in 1967. Their first album was self-titled, and released in 1968 on the record label Blue Horizon.
Nicks is often dubbed the “Queen of Rock N’ Roll”, and for good reason. Nicks released her first solo album, Bella Donna, in 1981. Bella Donna topped the Billboard charts, and hit platinum status just three months after it came out.
