Stevie Nicks becomes the first woman to be inducted TWICE into Rock Hall

News 02/04/2019

Stevie Nicks was inducted as a solo act for the Class of 2019 of the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

Nicks, also previously an inductee as part of Fleetwood Mac, opened the show with her 1983 hit song, 'Stand Back' taken from her second solo album, 'The Wild Heart'.

Watch her performance below.

Nicks told the crowd that she was wearing the original cape from the song's music video. “This is the original cape from ‘Stand Back,’” Nicks pointed out to the crowd. “My frugal mother would’ve appreciated that.” Well, at least eventually. “If she found out how much it cost in 1983 ($3,000), she would’ve grounded me, even though I was too old to ground.”

When she performed 'Leather and Lace', Don Henley came out to duet with Nicks as a special guest. The song was also originally a duet track with Henley from 'Bella Donna'.

Her third song featured the young pop sensation who went solo, Harry Styles, whom Nicks described as a friend she has become "quite close with" recently. On guitar, Styles filled in for the late Tom Petty on the duet song, 'Stop Draggin' My Heart Around'.

Nicks closed her set with 'Edge of Seventeen'.

Styles later returned to the stage for Stevie's induction speech, lauding her as the first woman to be inducted twice into the Rock Hall.

“She is forever current,” Styles said. “‘Dreams’ was the first song I knew all the words to before I even knew what it meant — I thought it was a song about the weather,” he said to laughter.

“She’s so wise and serene; she sees all the romance and drama in the world, and she celebrates it,” the singer said. “She’s the magically gipsy godmother that occupies all the space in between,” Styles said.

“She’s responsible for more running mascara, including my own, than all the bad dates in history…. She is everything you ever wanted in a lady, a lover and a friend.”
