Stevie Nicks on 'Sound City' and Fleetwood Mac: 'It's like the Volturi is coming for me'
Watch the video interview for the 'rock star' at Dave Grohl's movie premiere
PARK CITY - Stevie Nicks' storied career started, in part, out of the Sound City recording studio in California, which makes it a fine reason for her to co-star in Dave Grohl's Sundance documentary "Sound City." But the Fleetwood Mac singer and solo artist isn't entirely comfortable in front of the camera -- at least, that's not where she feels at home.
"I don't love being filmed and I don't love all the stuff that you have to think about instead of thinking about your music, I don't love the whole vanity thing. It bugs me," she told me, donning enormous sunglasses and fabulous fur on the red carpet at the "Sound City" premiere this weekend. "I never want to be a movie star… but [being] the Rock Star's O.K. because you don't have to do that that much. You really just have to work on your music and that's really where my heart is. But this is very much fun."
She's been showing up on film for "Sound City" and in the making-of film for her latest album "In Your Dreams," which is still baking. Then there's the re-reunion tour with Fleetwood Mac this year.
"I'm still working on my documentary, and I'm going back into Fleetwood Mac," she said. And what better way to describe her relationship to the urgency of the entertainment industry than with a "Twilight" reference: "It's like the Volturi is coming for me."
What suits her is the ratio for "Sound City." I told her I love that she's a girl in a boys' club…
"So do I."
Stay tuned for a review of the film.
