Stevie Nicks, Rupert Hine, The Other Side of the Mirror, 1989

Rupert Hine, Stevie’s ‘Mirror’ producer, dead at 72

Rupert Hine, British music producer, has died at 72, according to a tweet from The Ivors Academy where he served as Board Director. Rupert produced Stevie Nicks’ fourth solo album, The Other Side of the Mirror (1989), a concept record inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Rupert and Stevie dated for a short time; their relationship was the subject of Stevie’s Billboard Top 20 single “Rooms on Fire,” also a No 1. Billboard Rock Track. In her 1991 Timespace compilation liner notes, Stevie described their instant connection: “It always seemed to be that whenever Rupert walked into one of those rooms…that the rooms were on fire. There was a connection between us that everyone around us picked up on, and everyone was very careful to respect our space…our Timespace.”

Stevie’s 1989 album The Other Side of the Mirror featured a more whimsical sound, a sonic landscape that Rupert Hine had created with keyboard-driven arrangements. In addition to the Top 40 “Room on Fire,” the album also featured standout cuts “Long Way to Go,” “Ooh My Love,” and the blues rocker “Whole Lotta Trouble.” 

During his long music career, Rupert Hine also worked on material for The Fixx (1981’s Shuttered Room and 1984’s Reach the Beach), Rush, (1989’s Presto and 1991’s Roll the Bones), and Howard Jones, (1985′ Dream into Action) among many others.

Rupert Hine’s friends and colleagues have tweeted warm tributes of the talented musician, songwriter, and producer.

Billboard has published an obituary for Rupert Hine.
