There’s no end in sight for Stevie Nicks‘ career. Last year, the legendary rock singer wrapped up a year-and-a-half long tour with Fleetwood Mac, and she’s about to embark on a 27-city solo tour with the Pretenders next month.
Fleetwood Mac fans shouldn’t worry about Nicks’ decision to go on a solo tour. In fact, she credits her solo projects for the band’s longevity. “I feel really blessed to be able to be the Gemini that I am and be able to hop back and forth between my solo career and Fleetwood Mac. My solo career is truly the reason why Fleetwood Mac is still together because I get bored easily,” Nicks told Rolling Stone. “That’s why every time I go to work on my solo career, I try to make it as different from Fleetwood Mac as I possibly can so that it really is two worlds. When I feel ready to go back to Fleetwood Mac when we do our next tour in a year and half, I’ll be ready to go back to Fleetwood Mac, and it’ll be good.”
Stevie did admit that the performance aspect of her career will eventually fade, but she seems adamant about working well into her nineties. The topic came up when she reflected on Prince’s untimely death. “I feel really sad that Prince’s journey didn’t continue until he was 95,” she said. “Just so devastated, but I think that for most of us, we’re all gonna live to be in our nineties. So a lot of this creativity and all the things I want to do when this part of my life starts to go away a little bit, then I’ll be sitting down at an old typewriter that I’ll dig out of my storage unit in Phoenix and I’ll start writing stories. I’ll start working on movies. There’s so many things I want to do that this is just a part of it all. That’s all I can tell you.”
