Daily Telegraph (03/09/2004), Nicks' song sung for shop owner

Daily Telegraph (Australia), March 9, 2004

Nicks-knacks . . . Stevie Nicks opens the purse strings in Margaret Michael's doll shop Just White last week.

Nicks' song sung for shop owner

WHEN singer Stevie Nicks dedicated a song at all three of Fleetwood Mac's Sydney concerts to a new friend a 74-year-old named Margaret fans were left wondering just who the woman is.

"You just made my life so much better," Nicks said each show, just before dedicating Beautiful Child to Margaret.

The Daily Telegraph can reveal that woman is doll shop owner Margaret Michael, who met the rock star when she turned up at her city store Just White late last week.

As it turns out, Nicks has a real passion for dolls.

"Before I left for Australia I had visited a dear friend of mine, Beverly, who was in hospital with cancer," Nicks told The Daily Telegraph yesterday.

"When we got to Perth [February 27] I found out that she had died. I looked at this doll and her spirit was just there it was quite incredible. I just felt it so strongly.

"I've had the doll with me since then and I sit her up near me and it has really helped me get through this very difficult period," Nicks said.

Although Nicks wanted to protect her new friend's privacy, Ms Michael was happy to share her special experience so people would know just "how lovely Stevie really is".

"I'm not really into that sort of thing but she was so warm and so sincere," Ms Michael said.
