Stevie Nicks was a “selfish songwriter” before working alongside Dave Stewart.
The former Fleetwood Mac singer – who collaborated with the ex-Eurythmics star on ‘In Your Dreams’, her first solo album in a decade – admitted the experience made her realise how “easy” duos can be.
She said: “I’d been a staunchly selfish, staunchly private songwriter before the project. But Dave came to my house, pulled and poem out and said, ‘Let’s start here’. There’s a mic hanging over the coffee table, and he’s plugged into a little amp and he starts playing. I’m just in the headlights.
“But in under an hour we had a song recorded. The doors had opened. Now I understand why all those duos – Lennon and McCartney, Rogers and Hammerstein, Goffin and King – wrote together. Dave made it so easy.”
The 63-year-old musician now thinks ‘In Your Dreams’ is the “best thing” she has done throughout her career.
Stevie added: “I think ‘In Your Dreams’ feels like the best thing I’ve ever done and I want to make sure I’ve done everything right to get it out there.”
Annie Lennox has given away touring for good. The former Eurythmics singer has announced in her blog at her website, ‘ doubt that I’ll ever tour again because quite honestly.it just wears me out mentally and physically, and my back and left foot are rubbish’.
Annie’s last tour was in the USA in October 2007. In recent years she has limited her appearances to television shows and charity events.
‘ think I spent enough time waiting in cars, hotel rooms and dressing rooms for Godot to actually make a personal appearance,’ she writes. ‘In the future performers will tour by hologram on a regular basis.undoubtedly’.
Annie maintains a close friendship with her Eurythmics partner Dave Stewart but has stated she does not foresee any more Eurythmics projects.
