But the factual errors in this new biography start on page one and build with reckless abandon throughout the book, making for a very distracting and unsatisfying read. At this stage in her long, industrious career, the legendary Stevie Nicks deserves a thoughtfully well-researched biography, handling the many important details of Stevie's life with care. Sadly, this one misses the mark in egregious fashion.
Here some of the most glaring errors that appear in Davis's book:
"Into this western land was born Stephanie Lynn Nicks on May 28, 1948..." (1)
May 26, 1948. The biggest mistake is on page 1, her birthday!
"The remixed 'Dreams' single, with Stevie's fragile voice, got played on AM radio now..." (112)
It was the album version, not a remix.
"One of the last tracks completed [for Trouble in Shangri-La] was recorded in Paris. This was 'Love Is,' a languid ballad..." (269)
"Love Is" was recorded by Sarah McLachlan's longtime French-Canadian producer Pierre Marchand, which is probably the closest connection to Paris! The song was supposed to be recorded in the U.S., but due to Marchard's green card problem, Stevie went to Vancouver, where it was eventually recorded.
"The hottest female group in America, Destiny's Child, sampled the "Stand Back" guitar riff for their single "Bootylicious," and invited Stevie to appear in the video, miming Waddy's now classic single-note guitar stutter." (271)
"Bootylicious" samples the "Edge of Seventeen" guitar riff, not "Stand Back."
"A son of a friend of Stevie's, one of her godsons named Cory, eighteen years old, had overdosed on drugs at a fraternity party." (303)
It was Glen Parrish's son Glen, Jr., not Cory.
"The Pretenders opened the concert with an hour-long jukebox set. Stevie and her band, working in front of colorful animations and psychedelic patterns, launched into 'Outside the Rain' as fans ran back to their seats after beer runs and bathroom visits." (311)
"Gold and Braid" opened Stevie's 24 Karat Gold Tour set, not "Outside the Rain."
"When the unfamiliar 'Belle Fleur' segued into 'Dreams'"... (311)
"Outside the Rain" segues into "Dreams," not "Belle Fleur."
UPDATE: I just did something for the first time since getting into the Kindle ecosystem in 2009 - I returned an ebook for a refund. Don't buy this book.
