Stevie Nicks talks about her friendship with Prince in new interview

music news

Fleetwood Mac star Stevie Nicks has opened up and said she still feels a close connection to Prince in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

Nicks said she regrets that the two never shared a stage together before his death back in April 2016, saying "we all think we’re immortal".

"I always thought we had plenty of time. I should have told Prince 10 years ago or 15 years ago, 'Hey, Prince, we should do this song onstage together — some night, some city, call me.'"

"I feel like Prince is with me... When I’m nervous, I’ll talk to Prince. In my solo act, when I do ‘Moonlight’, I wear this white wolfy coat — I put this coat on and I try to transform into a Dire Wolf from Game of Thrones. And before I go on, I always say, 'Walk with me, Prince'".

She went on to say that she and Prince were "strange friends" and recalled how her single 'Stand Black' was inspired by his song, 'Little Red Corvette'. Nicks shared memories of Prince attending her Sunset Sound Studio to hear and play on the song.

"Then he was gone — he was like a spirit then,” Nicks says. “We always had that crazy respect for each other. I feel that connection is still there, maybe more now than before he died — with Tom [Petty] and with Prince".

On her second induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame back in December, Nicks said: "For now I will just say, I have been in a band since 1968. To be recognized for my solo work makes me take a deep breath and smile. It’s a glorious feeling."
