blameitonyourheart said: there’s one interview where she says smt like ‘we took a few klonopin, then smoked a little bit of pot, drank wine and my friend glen passed out… 4 hours later i thought he was dead’ yeah smt along those lines but yeah
yeah, i saw that one on Oprah. she said they smoked half a joint, she gave him a glass of wine and her dose of Klonopin, and he passed out. so then she laughingly said she checked if he was dead - what a psychopath LOL
but i guess she was trying to prove a point by testing out the drugs on her friend, and it worked. she definitely built up the tolerance, with Klonopin, tolerance comes in 1-2 weeks, it’s terrifying :/
“I gave my Klonopin to my friend Glen who is six feet tall and he totally passed out (laughs). I asked the psychiatrist: “Are you trying to kill me?” In that moment I said “I’m done.” So I checked into the hospital. And I thought I was gonna die and could do nothing about it. Until I realized that there was something I could do. I could fight for my life. And I did. I walked out of there. I went on the stage in a skinny black dress again. I took beautiful pictures again. I was myself again. So I can only tell you it’s possible. Whatever you’re trying to do, it’s possible.”—Stevie L. Nicks, rockstar, eight years addicted to prescription tranquillizers, has been completely clean since 1994.
You’re so welcome! I forgot to mention my friend’s absolute favourite “Crystal”. It’s funny, cause she says “You remain ageless”, and now she’s sixty-five and has the face and vitality of someone a good, solid twenty years younger. And by the by, Edge of Seventeen is from Ms. Nicks’ solo career because apparently the bitch wrote too much for one single band.
So, couple more songs Stand Back, Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You, Beauty and The Beast, Belladonna… I could go on forever. She’s far too great for this world.
I've never really listened to Fleetwood Mac before but then I pressed play on that song - "Edge of Seventeen" - that you reblogged and OH MY GOD I CAN'T EVEN BELIEVE I'VE LIVED FOR SO LONG WITHOUT LISTENING TO FLEETWOOD MAC THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU (also, do you have any favorites that you could recommend for me to listen to??) <3 <3 <3
OMG GIRL LET ME HUG YOU AND NEVER LET GO
I myself only discovered the fellas not long ago, but you can see how much I love them now so it’s an easy love to have! Hope you don’t mind my publishing your question, m’dear, so that other folks can be educated on the art of being a ‘Mac fan.
First, sit down. Get yourself a nice comfortable environment, because you’re not gonna wanna stand up for a while. Now take the album “Rumours”, from 1977. Ask any ‘Mac fan and they’ll tell you: It’s The Shit. Ever heard anyone saying: “I’m listening to The Shit”? It’s Rumours.
On that album, listen particularly to Don’t Stop and Songbird, written by my musical soulmate Christine McVie, The Chain, Go Your Own Way (every single time I play this song for friends they enthusiastically ask me “WHO IS THIS???” without fail) and Second Hand News, written by señor Hot Stuff Lindsey Buckingham. And then Dreams and Gold Dust Woman by my queen, the little songbird you just had the pleasure of hearing, Ms. Stephanie Nicks.
Before Rumours, give Rhiannon and Landslide a listen. I mean, really. Anyone with a pulse needs to give a listen to Rhiannon and Landslide. I still don’t know how two fucking masterpieces like that came out of such a little person. And while you’re at it, listening to World Turning won’t hurt.
Then, moving on. Pick up the song Tusk. Leave the homonymous album for when you’re more well-versed on the ‘Mac, because it’s quite experimental. Possibly won’t be your cup of tea, but quite possibly will. Except for the song Sara, another creation of the queen of the universe. It’s too lovely and touching and endearing for words.
After that, you’re gonna wanna give a listen Gypsy and Hold Me from the album Mirage, and from the album Tango in the Night, Seven Wonders, Little Lies (Xtine strikes again - flawless woman), Big Love (a little weird - It’ll grow on you). Then Lindsey left the band which means it went to hell.
2003! THE ALBUM “SAY YOU WILL”! YES! YES! GREAT ALBUM!! Stevie wrote four of its songs in 22 days. Yes. Queen, people, QUEEN! Listen to the whole thing, seriously, I can’t even believe they were all in their mid-fifties when they recorded that. So fresh. What’s The World Coming To, Say You Will, Miranda, Throw Down, Peacekeeper, Destiny Rules, and two tear-jerkers, Goodbye Baby and Say Goodbye. By then you’ll probably be invested in the band’s personal lives (they were romantically involved in more combinations than a Rubik’s cube) and thus the tears will be endless.
And finally, listen to Without You, that they released in 2009, decades after Stevie wrote it for Lindsey. Hear the love in it. It is that love that has been keeping the band alive for almost four decades. It’s that love, more than any music or art that has inspired me to love them back. “We’ll never break the chain.”
And by all means, Ms. thursdaylane, keep in touch and share your impressions!
