Vocalist Stevie Nicks has written seven new songs for a new album and is
planning a television retrospective. The Paradise Valley resident cast a
spell over her fans in the '70s and '80's with her mystical songs and soulful
singing. She recently dispelled one of the most common misconceptions about
her music: "That I'm a black satanic witch, which I'm not. That's never
been my favorite thing," Nicks said. The singer has, however, discovered
something sacred in her home state. "For me, Arizona is [a] very spiritual
place, and my rock-and-roll life is very crazy. It's having a place to always
come home to. This is the greatest place in the world for me." Nicks does
have a ritual at her Spanish-style home. "I go in my back yard and check out
Camelback Mountain. That's my spiritual mountain."
