While in her early 20s, Stevie Nicks opened for fellow music legends Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.
Born Stephanie Lynn Nicks in 1948 in Arizona, Stevie Nicks was exposed to music at an early age by her grandfather. He had a love for country music and even made Nicks her own guitar.
In 1968, musician Lindsey Buckingham asked Nicks to join the band Fritz, and the group opened concerts for artists like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.
After disbanding and putting out some music of their own, Nicks and Buckingham both joined the group Fleetwood Mac in 1975.
That same year, while in her late 20s, Nicks released her first album with Fleetwood Mac and it featured iconic songs like “Landslide” and “Rhiannon.”
It quickly rose to no. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. In 1977, the band’s next album “Rumours” also hit no. 1.
Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Nicks put out more successful solo music and was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with her bandmates in 1998, and then as a solo artist in 2019.
Now in her early 70s, Nicks reunited with Fleetwood Mac for a tour in 2018, and she is still touring as a solo artist.
In 2020, she also inspired a viral trend on TikTok.
