Gold Dust Woman gives 'the gold standard of rock biographers' (the Boston Globe) his ideal topic: Nicks' work and life are equally sexy and interesting, and Davis delves deeply into each, unearthing fresh details from new, intimate interviews and interpreting them to present a rich new portrait of the star. Just as Nicks (and Lindsay Buckingham) gave Fleetwood Mac the 'shot of adrenaline' they needed to become real rock stars-according to Christine McVie-Gold Dust Woman is vibrant with stories and with a life lived large and hard:

●How Nicks and Buckingham were asked to join Fleetwood Mac and how they turned the band into stars
●The affairs that informed Nicks' greatest songs
●Her relationships with the Eagles' Don Henley and Joe Walsh, and with Fleetwood himself
●Why Nicks married her best friend's widower
●Her dependency on cocaine, drinking and pot, but how it was a decade-long addiction to Klonopin that almost killed her
●Nicks' successful solo career that has her still performing in venues like Madison Square Garden
●The cult of Nicks and its extension to chart-toppers like Taylor Swift and the Dixie Chicks

I thought the book was very good. I had lived in L.A. for 30yrs and when the book talked about all the areas Stevie lived and been through in L.A. It was a reminiscent of memories for me knowing those areas and even being at a lot of the places mentioned in L.A. The book had me feel as though I was apart of the story looking from the outside. Although I was never really a big Fleetwood or Nicks fan, I did like a lot of the music but I was more of a hard rock/ heavy metal fan then. Never following Stevie or Fleetwood it was a very amazing story and great to read that Stevie saved herself from addiction and is much better. It is sad to note that just after this book had came out on the market, not long later Tom Petty past away which I am sure was a sad day for Stevie as he had been a good friend to her. Stevie had been through so much, my heart goes out to her, the Queen of rock.
