The years Nicks lost

Stevie Nicks has given up on finding true love.

Stevie Nicks has given up on finding true love, said Jada Yuan in New York magazine. As the glamorous lead singer of Fleetwood Mac, she had a series of intense and tumultuous love affairs that included bandmates Mick Fleetwood and Lindsey Buckingham, Don Henley and Joe Walsh of the Eagles, and record producer Jimmy Iovine. “I had lots of boyfriends and lots and lots of fun,” she says. “I had enough fun and enough relationships to last me for the rest of my life, really.” When the run of relationships ended, Nicks was prescribed a tranquilizer called Klonopin, which was supposed to help her kick her raging cocaine habit. The drug made her feel like a zombie, and she spent much of the next eight years lying on her couch, eating and watching TV. “I’m happy not to be married, not to have children,” says Nicks, 65. “But the fact is that I don’t know what would have happened in that eight years. Maybe I would have met somebody [or] had a baby. That was really stolen from me.” Nicks quit Klonopin but remains unattached. “Like, I’m gonna go to a bar? And hang out? I mean, where am I gonna meet somebody?” She pauses. “If that special man walked into my life, I would probably pack up my bags and go with him. But [love] is a very elusive thing.”
