I can admit now that, not until she was officially credited on “Future Games” and “Bare Trees”, were we sure that the singer of “Spare Me a Little” was female!

In July 1981, Stevie Nicks already was in arguably America’s most popular band, Fleetwood Mac, but her first solo album then, “Bella Donna”, took her career to another level entirely, a fact that was by no means guaranteed and which came at some cost. Stevie spells it all out quite candidly In the Studio while revealing the stories and characters behind “Edge of Seventeen”, “Leather and Lace” with Don Henley, and the timeless duet with Tom Petty on his “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”.
