In Nicks’s letter, she mentions the identity of the musician whose song she has covered.
This mystery man isn’t the only rock star whom Nicks has had a relationship with!
The Blast has covered Nicks’s relationships with many famous faces over the years. Most recently, Nicks publicly mourned her late friend, Foo Fighters’ drummer Taylor Hawkins following his untimely death in March.
Upon hearing the news of Hawkins’ death, Nicks shared a sweet photo of the duo on her Instagram account and penned a lengthy tribute to him.
She wrote, “Thank goodness for the photo booth in the Foo Fighters studio. Because of these pictures my friendship with Taylor will always be at my fingertips. He always came to my shows. He and his best friend Dave [Grohl] even let me be a Foo Fighter for a little while. We recorded a kick a*s version of ‘Gold Dust Woman’ (live) and at the end of the song I yelled ‘Best Gold Dust Woman ever’ and I meant it.”
Nicks went on to write “Taylor was very handsome and he was very cute. Sometimes that combination is way better than ‘beautiful.’ I think it’s everything. He had a huge heart and a glorious smile. When he walked into the room, everyone looked up. When he left the room, everyone was sad,” she continued. Nicks also shared song lyrics inspired by Hawkins.
The “Gold Dust Woman” also had a longtime relationship with another late rocker. Nicks’ longtime friendship with the late Tom Petty began in the late 1970s and continued until his death in 2017.
Their years-long friendship wasn’t without the occasional tiff, however. Earlier this year The Blast covered a story recalling a few instances where the rock stars clashed, including an instance where the duo butted heads after Petty allegedly proclaimed Fleetwood Mac was a “corporate soft rock” band.
According to our report, the duo had been in Australia when they had this particular argument, which was recalled in “Gold Dust Woman: The Autobiography Of Stevie Nicks.”
Petty recalled “She got really mad at me one night in Australia” after the duo had been comparing the musical styles of Fleetwood Mac and Petty’s band, The Heartbreakers. After taking the stance that his band was more of a rock and roll band, Nicks allegedly exclaimed, “How dare you say that to me?”
Petty maintained that he had meant well with his argument. He went on to explain, “I love that band, have the greatest respect for Lindsey [Buckingham] and Mick [Fleetwood], but I didn’t see them as a rock and roll band. I thought her journey was different than mine.”
The “Breakdown” singer went on to clarify his comments further.
“I didn’t always agree with her music taste,” Petty continued, “and she didn’t always agree with mine. My frustration with her was ‘You need somebody to remind you what you’re capable of. You get too distracted by bulls**tters that want to make a hit. I don’t know why you’re doing all of this synthesizer rock,” he explained.
Nicks Announces A New Cover Of THIS Classic!

Nicks may be well out of her “synthesizer rock” phase, but she isn’t through expanding her repertoire!
Earlier today she announced she would be releasing a cover of “For What It’s Worth” written by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young’s Stephen Stills, on Friday!
Her handwritten letter read, “I am so excited to release my new song this Friday. It’s called ‘For What It’s Worth’ and it was written by Stephen Stills in 1966. It meant something to me then, and it means something to me now. I always wanted to interpret it thru the eyes of a woman- and it seems like today, in the times that we live in, that it has a lot to say.”
She ended her letter with “I can’t wait for you to hear it.”
Nicks also used a hashtag featuring the song’s title in her tweet.
