Exclusive: Stevie Nicks Talks About Working With Dave Stewart

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Stevie Nicks‘ 2011 album ‘In Your Dreams’ marked a solid return for the legendary singer-songwriter. But it wasn’t a total solo project. Nicks received much help from producer Dave Stewart, the former Eurythmics multi-instrumentalist who’s worked with Mick Jagger, Tom Petty and Ringo Starr.

“He was really behind all the shooting of all those videos that the Eurythmics made,”┬áNicks tells Ultimate Classic Rock┬áin an exclusive video interview, which you can watch above. “It was all Dave’s idea. Everything they did — from a style standpoint and from a musical standpoint — was kinda crazily in his head.”

Recorded in large part at Nicks’ sweeping and stately home in Los Angeles, ‘In Your Dreams’ was her first solo album in 10 years. The recently released DVD, also titled ‘In Your Dreams,’ chronicles the making of the album and gives insight to the working relationship between Nicks and Stewart.

“I said [to him], ‘I trust that you will film me and make me look good,'” Nicks says. “And if at least not good, interesting. I’ll accept interesting. But if I look like an old hag, I’m not going to be happy.”
