Stevie Nicks, like Prince, is a force to be reckoned with. She's powerful; she's soulful; she's unapologetically her, and because of that the Fleetwood Mac singer always had an affinity for The Purple One.
During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the rockstar discussed her relationship with Prince, admitting they were "strange friends." She lamented never being able to play her solo song "Stand Back," which was inspired by "Little Red Corvette," with the iconic singer. "I guess we all think we’re immortal," she confessed. "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.'”
Though they never had the opportunity to physically perform together, Nicks described feeling Prince with her both on and off stage. "I feel like Prince is with me," she said. "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.'”
Nicks will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for the second time this spring, making her the first female to do so. That's something Prince would definitely be proud of.
