Nicks has penned such Mac classics as "Landslide," "Dreams," "Gold Dust Woman" and "Rhiannon." As a solo artist, beginning with the five times platinum debut "Bella Donna," her solo hits include unforgettable singles such as "Edge of Seventeen," "Leather and Lace" and "Stand Back." Her most recent CD "In Your Dreams" co-written and co-produced by Dave Stewart was followed by a tour and a documentary of the same name. Fleetwood Mac is scheduled to tour this spring.
