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: &#9679How Nicks and Buckingham were asked to join Fleetwood Mac and how they turned the band into stars &#9679The affairs that informed Nicks' greatest songs &#9679Her relationships with the Eagles' Don Henley and Joe Walsh, and with Fleetwood himself &#9679Why Nicks married her best friend's widower &#9679Her dependency on cocaine, drinking and pot, but how it was a decade-long addiction to Klonopin that almost killed her &#9679Nicks' successful solo career that has her still performing in venues like Madison Square Garden &#9679The cult of Nicks and its extension to chart-toppers like Taylor Swift and the Dixie Chicks

“Davis is astute and respectful…adept in his literary analysis.” New York Times Book Review
“An intimate and refreshing look at both Stevie Nicks’ career and personal life.” Departures
“Christina Delaine’s performance often feels like rock singer Stevie Nicks herself is telling her story. Delaine conjures up visions of Stevie with her melodious voice, which can turn sharp as a knife when the story makes it necessary. And what a story it is…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Offers a captivating portrait of the singer whose songwriting and stage presence gave the faltering British blues band a boost in the mid-1970s…Davis’ candid, energetic book reveals the life of the woman who’s arguably one of rock’s greatest singer-songwriters.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Davis gives readers a look into recording sessions and concert tours, playing up the personality clashes and shifting romantic entanglements that made up the mystique of Fleetwood Mac in its heyday…An entertaining rock biography.” Kirkus Reviews
