122.  Stevie Nicks

It is difficult to argue that Fleetwood Mac should not be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but what of their breakout star, Stevie Nicks? Certainly she had a successful solo career and her look was copied enough, but it is also easy to counter that her best work was in the band that first made her a star.

Just what is about Stevie Nicks that makes her so beloved? She is cited as a major influence by numerous female songwriters and she had that raspy voice that was so unique that rendered it impossible to imitate. What could help Nicks is that the Hall does strive for some type of gender equity and their really are few women rockers who could be ahead of her. If any member of Fleetwood Mac could get in twice it has to be Nicks.

The Bullet Points

  • Eligible Since: Sunday, 01 January 2006
  • Country of Origin: U.S.A. (Phoenix, AZ)
  • Why they will get in: Her solo work is solid enough and with her one time moniker as the “Queen of Rock and Roll” makes her seem to “fit”.
  • Why they won't get in: She is already inducted with Fleetwood Mac, so there will be no sense of urgency to induct her.
  • Essential Albums: Bella Donna (1981)
    The Wild Heart (1983)
    Rock a Little (1986)
    The Other Side of the Mirror (1989)
  • Our Five Favorite Songs as Chosen by Each Member of the NIHOF Committee: Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around (From Bella Donna, 1981)
    Edge of Seventeen (From Bella Donna, 1981)

Quoting LaustCawz:
Who ever referred to Stevie Nicks
as "The Queen Of Rock"??
Was that her idea??

Rolling Stones deemed her The Queen of Rock in the late 70's! She was one of the only REAL rocker chicks during that time..In fact she shredded her vocal chords because of her singing. Watch her 70's performances and that will show you a real rock and roll singer.
