Rolling Stone’s Rob Sheffield will be focusing on the life and career of Stevie Nicks in a new audio project in collaboration with Audible (an audiobook listening service). The new project will be called The Wild Heart of Stevie Nicks and will start right at the singer’s childhood and detail everything in between from her love of music to her early years of waitressing and cleaning houses.
Sheffield writes and narrates the entire show, also digging into the early days of Fleetwood Mac in addition to her solo career. Specifically, he will be delving into the drama with Stevie and the rest of the band that came after the Rumours and Tusk.
So what’s it gonna be about…
The show will also be detailing Stevie’s friendships with other influential music artists like Tom Petty and Prince and how Fleetwood Mac was transformed into one of the biggest and greatest rock bands in the world. The show is allegedly already available to purchase for $7.95 or it comes free with a 30-day free Audible trial.
