Stevie Nicks: “Tom Petty would pass the quarantine in the studio, the singer tells how time passes, the Fleetwood Mac group chat and what he will do with the poems he has accumulated in the last 30 years
“Tom Petty would pass the quarantine in the studio, the singer Stevie Nicks tells how time passes, the obsession with Harry Styles, the Fleetwood Mac group chat and what he will do with the poems Nicks has accumulated in the last 30 years
“I’m beginning to understand what my parents went through during the Second World War. Think of all the things that happened and that revolutionized people’s lives. ”
“The only thing I know is that I don’t want to go on tour. I think this moment is not as difficult for me as for those who have a band that had to go on tour and for those who were in the rehearsal room to get ready. ”
“I am really tired of this situation. I don’t go to sleep before 6 or 7 in the morning because I can’t fall asleep anymore. At 2 in the afternoon someone comes to wake me up. It takes me over an hour to get out of bed because I don’t get enough sleep, then I go to the living room and watch the news on TV. I also watch New Amsterdam (the NBC series), which I love and inspire me a lot. I could write an entire album based on New Amsterdam.
I keep thinking about how the greats we lost would react, like Tom Petty.
Tom had a home studio. I think he would have buried himself there writing songs. And Michael Campbell would send him stuff through the internet. Yes. He was not only Tom Petty, the singer and author, but also a sound engineer.
I want to reread my 2004 diaries and recover what I consider great poetry. I may not even write anymore, because I have accumulated many poems. Enough to write a big book if I wanted to. As soon as I get some energy back, that’s what I will do. And everyone who lives with me keeps telling me: “Let’s go downstairs and record, let’s go to the piano!”. I think, well, it’s nice that you say “let’s go”, but it’s not something we all do together (laughs). I can’t sit on the piano and say, “Song coming!”. I have to think about it a little, experiment. I’m trying to do it.
