Each year, rock’s highest honor, induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, is bestowed upon a handful of artists, cementing their legacy for eternity. That night, they are celebrated by their peers and the contemporary artists they have influenced. All share a mutual admiration for these legends who have dedicated their lives to Rock & Roll. Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Vault gives unfiltered access to these iconic speeches from the biggest names in music ranging from the Beatles to NWA.
The Rock Hall gives access to past induction speeches. As the first woman to be inducted twice, Stevie Nicks comes to the induction stage grateful and honored to be holding that title. Pop music force Harry Styles shares poetic stories of his own fandom, honoring the “true Stevie” we all have come to know and love.
Stevie Nicks launched her impressive solo career in 1981 with the release of her essential recording Bella Donna, produced by Jimmy Iovine. The album contained the Top 40 singles “Leather and Lace” (a duet with Don Henley), “Edge of Seventeen (Just Like the White Winged Dove),” “After the Glitter Fades,” and the lead single “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” a Top-3-smash-hit duet with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. She proceeded to release several more successful recordings, such as The Wild Heart (1983), Rock a Little (1985), and The Other Side of the Mirror (1989), among others, and the retrospective compilations TimeSpace: The Best of Stevie Nicks (1991), Enchanted: The Works of Stevie Nicks (1998), Crystal Visions…The Very Best of Stevie Nicks (2007), and Stand Back: 1981-2017 (2019).
