    Excellent feature. Stevie Nicks’ lyrics always seem so elusive, so it’s nice to hear some back story.

    Wonderful interview! It’s so good to see her again. She was always an important part of my life, I have her albums on my wall in fact. What a great woman and song writer.

    Stevie Nicks is (and always will be) an incredible artist with SUCH a gift. I saw Fleetwood Mac long ago at one of the “Day on the Green” concerts in Oakland, CA, and I have loved them ever since. Stevie is a brilliant singer, and I am amazed she can still pull it off at 60!! Beautiful woman, beautiful voice, beautiful outlook on life.

    I WAS 17 WHEN EDGE OF SEVENTEEN CAME OUT. ME AND MY GIRLFRIEND, NANCY, WERE DRIVING AROUND TOWN ON A FRIDAY NIGHT IN MY 76 LEMANS(WHICH I PAID $375.00 FOR)DRINKING BUDWEISERS. THIS SONG CAME ON THE RADIO AND I WENT AND CHANGED THE STATION. NANCY QUICKLY TOLD ME TO PUT IT BACK. SO I DID. AND I SAID SOMETHING LIKE, “WHY. WHAT’S UP. WHO IS THIS?” AND I WILL NEVER FORGET THIS PART. NANCY SAID IT’S STEVIE NICKS. I SAID WHO’S HE? SHE SAID NO- SHE’S A WOMAN FROM FLEETWOOD MAC,ETC.. WELL I MOVED TO LA AFTER GRADUATING FROM DEDHAM HIGH AND NANCY STAYED HOME. IT WAS 1983 AND ALL I HEARD ON THE RADIO WAS STEVIE NICKS AND I WOULD CALL NANCY FROM LA TELLING HER HOW MUCH I LOVED HER AND MISSED HER-AND SHE TOLD ME NOT TO CALL ANYMORE THAT SHE WAS WITH “GREG” NOW. I SAID GREG WHO? SHE SAID “GREG D” I SAID, “MR. D? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?” MR. D WAS MY HOMEROOM TEACHER AND NANCE’S BIOLOGY TEACHER. MY HEART WAS BROKEN AT THE TENDER AGE OF 18. THIS IS HOW AND WHY I HAVE BEEN IN LOVE WITH STEVIE EVER SINCE.

    I once heard/read that the title “Edge of Seventeen” came about when Stevie asked Tom Petty’s wife when they met, and she sat at the “age of seventeen” but with her thick Southern accent it sounded like “edge of seventeen.” She then incorporated that into the song with John Lennon as the “white winged dove.”

  • darclyte

    That should have read “said” not “sat.”
