STEVIE NICKS gushed over sibling rockers HAIM during a concert in California on Saturday (Nov 29, 2014), calling them a “major force in rock and roll.”
Fleetwood Mac brought its On With the Show tour, complete with keyboardist Christine McVie, to Los Angeles’ The Forum venue and among those in the audience were sisters Alana, Este and Danielle Haim.
Singer Nicks told the audience, “Maybe twice in my lifetime I have met a group of other singers, artists, songwriters that I have thought were going to be a major force in rock and roll. And tonight the ladies Haim are here – Alana, Este and Danielle. And I have to say, because I love sharing stuff with the audience about other people that I love – we’ve been on the road for 27 shows and I play their record every day; I love it…
“It gives me answers, it gives me advice, it wraps its wings around me and it tells me everything will be okay, and I have such respect for them, and I have such respect for who they are and how they play music and how they put their music together, and it just blows my mind.
“So, girls, never stop. Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow. Don’t stop. Keep doing what you’re doing because you’re important to this world.”
In October (14), Nicks invited Haim to her house for an interview with the New York Times’ T Magazine, where they performed an impromptu rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s Rhiannon, and the legendary singer presented each sister with matching gold necklaces with moon pendants and declared them fellow “sisters of the moon”.
Following Saturday’s concert, Haim took to Twitter.com to share a video of Nicks’ dedication to them at the gig, and added the caption, “Was reunited with the original sister of the moon last night (we cried).”
