Watch Stevie Nicks perform a serene, solo ‘Blue Water’
Rolling Stone’s most recent cover story is a long, intimate look into the life of Stevie Nicks. While the issue was coming together, the Fleetwood Mac singer-songwriter sat behind a piano and played a handful of songs for our cameras. Above, watch her perform “Blue Water,” a meditative track that from last year’s 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault. Lady Antebellum provide harmonies on the record, but here Nicks goes completely solo.
During the informal session, she also sang a rare, stripped-down version of “Gypsy,” and in the story she discussed everything from her past drug use to her current tour with Fleetwood Mac.
“We choose to stay,” she says of the band. “Because we can’t do anything else. None of us are ever going to stand up and say, ‘I’m going to make my own choice for the first time in my life, and I’m going away, and I don’t know if I’m coming back.”
