A classic rock biography from the classic rock biographer–Stephen Davis, author of Hammer of the Gods–a serious, vibrant book about the defining face and voice of Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks.

Stevie Nicks is a legend of rock, but her energy and magnetism sparked new interest in this icon. At 68, she's one of the most glamorous creatures rock has known, and the rare woman who's a real rock ‘n' roller.

Gold Dust Woman gives "the gold standard of rock biographers" (The Boston Globe) his ideal topic: Nicks' work and life are equally sexy and interesting, and Davis delves deeply into each, unearthing fresh details from new, intimate interviews and interpreting them to present a rich new portrait of the star. Just as Nicks (and Lindsay Buckingham) gave Fleetwood Mac the "shot of adrenaline" they needed to become real rock stars—according to Christine McVie—Gold Dust Woman is vibrant with stories and with a life lived large and hard:

How Nicks and Buckingham were asked to join Fleetwood Mac and how they turned the band into stars
The affairs that informed Nicks' greatest songs
Her relationships with the Eagles' Don Henley and Joe Walsh, and with Fleetwood himself
Why Nicks married her best friend's widower
Her dependency on cocaine, drinking and pot, but how it was a decade-long addiction to Klonopin that almost killed her
Nicks’ successful solo career that has her still performing in venues like Madison Square Garden
The cult of Nicks and its extension to chart-toppers like Taylor Swift and the Dixie Chicks
