Background vocalist Sharon Celani shares Stevie Nicks stories on the latest episode of Coffee Talk with ADIKA Live. Stevie Nicks’ longtime friend also tells stories about Fleetwood Mac and her 43-year career in rock music.
Sharon and Stevie first met in Maui, Hawaii, in 1978, at the former Blue Max nightclub in Lahaina. The two performed Warren Zevon’s 1976 song “Poor Poor Pitiful Me” and struck up a friendship that has lasted ever since. Stevie asked Sharon, along with fellow backup vocalist Lori Nicks, to join the solo band that Stevie had been forming to record her first solo album Bella Donna (1981). An instant success, Bella Donna would be the launching pad for several more Stevie Nicks recordings, on which Sharon also performed.

Guest: Sharon Celani
It was on the island of Maui that Sharon first met Stevie Nicks in 1978, a meeting that would have a major impact on Sharon’s life. It happened that Stevie was vacationing on Maui and on one very fateful evening she decided to go to the Blue Max nightclub in Lahaina; it just so happened that Sharon’s band was performing there that night. Stevie was invited up to sing with the group, and the lucky audience was ecstatic when she took the stage – and stayed there for the rest of the night.
The events of that evening led to a lasting friendship between Sharon and Stevie, and Sharon has been singing on Stevie’s recordings and concert performances ever since.
