Philadelphia Inquirer, 10/22/1997, Fleetwood's Nicks Influenced by Joplin

Philadelphia Inquirer, October 22, 1997


Long before Fleetwood Mac star Stevie Nicks hit the big time and opened for Janis Joplin, she was imitating the '60s chanteuse.

"It was always Janis Joplin," Nicks' mother, Barbara Nicks, said of an adolescent Stevie spinning one Joplin record after another in her room. Nicks attributes her daughter's singing style to Joplin.

"She and Lindsey Buckingham opened for Janis in San Francisco, and she was just so excited.  She gave me one of Janis' jackets, and I have it in a closet here," Ms. Nicks said.

Fleetwood Mac's reunion tour plays Phoenix, the Nicks family's hometown, today.

Thanks to Ali Filipowicz for sending it to us.
