i think stevie nicks should be inductd for sheer poetic insight alone

Posted by neville nick on Sunday, 12.31.06 @ 20:59pm

Should be a of the most popular, prolific, long-lasting and innovative women in rock

Posted by Frank on Tuesday, 01.30.07 @ 12:57pm

Steve Nicks is already in with Fleetwood Mac (1998) Do you really think she deserves to be inducted based on her solo career?

Posted by Scott on Wednesday, 01.31.07 @ 04:22am

I agree with Scott. She's a great songwriter, but not as well known for her solo career. Stevie is one of the top women in rock (albeit a short list), but only after Madonna, Benatar, etc.

Posted by Chenders on Wednesday, 02.21.07 @ 16:05pm

Not as well known for her solo career? Huh? 4 top 10 platinum albums, 4 gold top 40 albums, one a box set.17 top 40 hits, 6 top 10. 2 gold videos,12 sold out national tours in a period of 18 years and about to begin a new one to support her new compilation that is already gold in preorders.16 BMI songwriting awards.Cited as a major influence by Sheryl Crow,Sarah McLaughlin,Courtney Love, Michelle Branch, the Dixie Chicks and Tori Amos, among others.One of the very few artists in history to maintain a successful solo career while a member of one of the most successful groups in history.Ranked #14 on the list of greatest rock and roll women of all time.She would deserve to be in had she never been in Fleetwood Mac.
Artistically, Benatar and Madonna are way out of her league.

Stevie is "The First Lady Of Rock" ! She has inspired & influanced so many in music.

Posted by Raymond on Monday, 03.19.07 @ 06:44am

Question: When an artist has had 2 lives - one with a very successful band as a member, and then one as a soloist, not quite with the accolades of their original band, do they merit HOF based on BOTH of their lives, taken in the context of their mark mad etogether, or shall the individual be judged solely on their outside solo and second career?

Also see: Don Henely, Sting, Steve Winwood, Phil Collins.

Posted by shawn on Saturday, 05.5.07 @ 19:06pm

If a person is being considered for induction, it's just that person and his or her solo career and achievements.

Posted by William on Saturday, 05.5.07 @ 20:57pm

Why WOULDN'T Stevie Nicks be eligible for both her solo work and her work with Fleetwood Mac? Eric Clapton (who, I will admit, is leagues ahead of Nicks) is inducted three times, and several people are inducted twice.

Posted by Joe on Saturday, 05.19.07 @ 20:30pm

"Why WOULDN'T Stevie Nicks be eligible for both her solo work and her work with Fleetwood Mac?
... several people are inducted twice."

She IS eligible for both, Joe. The question was should her original contribuions in Fleetwood come into consideration in aggregate with her solo work when considering her as an individual artist, or are the two mutually exclusive.

I still think it's almost impossible to delineate the two worlds in our minds and I question to what extent we even should try to do that. Why shouldn't a musician be evaluated within the context of their whole career? Even if the bulk of judgment focuses on their solo work (naturally) why shouldn't their history be a part of their resume?

straordinaria per la personalità ,l'intensità delle amo

Posted by michele on Tuesday, 07.3.07 @ 14:20pm

Yes Stevie should ABSOLUTELY be inducted!! She has paved the way for so many of the young female singers of today. Stevie writes her own songs from life experiences. She is an amazing songwriter. Personally I don't think she always gets the recognition she deserves. Yes she is in With FM but lets not forget that they wouldn't have been half as successful from 1975- present if it weren't for Ms. Nicks. Stevie should definitely be inducted to the R&R HOF. She is the ultimate Rock & Roll Goddess!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Kate on Friday, 07.6.07 @ 19:51pm

Stevie should rightly be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Her song writing skills have yet to be matched; she has been a solo performer for twenty six years now. Every one of her albums has earned either platinum or gold status. Her staying power is phenomenal; her voice is one of the most easily recognizable and admired in rock and roll. Extremely well - known artists - both male and female - who have worked with her have all come to respect her talents and skills as a rock and roll legend. A myriad of artists, again, both male and female have covered hre songs throughout the years; a true and vital sign of the worth Stevie's work.
She has been - and will continue to be - one of the most prolific influences and role models of today's women artists.
To rebuke Chanders' comment: Madonna is not a rock and roll artist; she has changed her persona and style so many times to cause controversy and rake in the money rather than to improve her writing styles that cause me to question where her value lies. Yes, she is ferally popular, but - does she write her songs? Or at least the majority of her songs? I, too am a fan of Pat Benetar, but - where is she? She has faded out of the picture many years ago, and is missed; but her staying power is ebbed compared to Stevie's.
Her support, respect, generosity and love for our wounded soldiers also show that the spirit of rock and roll lies beyond just the album sales and popularity.
To end, Rolling Stone named Stevie "The Queen of Rock and Roll" - a title which had never been passed onto another since 1981.

Posted by Bob Proulx on Saturday, 07.7.07 @ 05:25am

How much of her songs does she actually write? I know that many of her Fleetwood Mac classics were at the very least co-written by Lindsay Buckingham, even though they may have been credited to Stevie Nicks alone.

Posted by Dezmond on Saturday, 07.7.07 @ 08:56am

It's no coincidence that the best Fleetwood Mac songs are the ones where she isn't the lead vocalist.

Posted by Creepozoid on Saturday, 07.7.07 @ 23:07pm

she a great person. great singer and songwriter. and if some people don't like it then they can just not read it. i know a lot of people that love her more then when she was in the band Fleetwood Mac. she helped make that band to what that band is now.

Posted by Jessica on Monday, 07.9.07 @ 09:34am

I think Fleetwood Mac is generally overrated; so the idea of Stevie Nicks as a solo induction doesn't seem much of a priority....I mean, in say, the last 25 years besides "Talk To Me" what other song has she done as a solo artist that has made any kind of impression in American pop culture??

Oh yeah, that seedy disco song, "Stand Back".........

Posted by SG on Friday, 07.20.07 @ 01:43am

Stevie Nicks is the Queen of Rocking Roll. She is also known as the First lady of Rock. You cannot be called the Queen of rock and not be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She is well known for her Solo Career. She has had more hits then Blondi and Blondi has been inducted already. I cannot believe some of the polls, I always thought that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was for rock artist not rap artist. You also have to remember that Stevie Nicks continues to sell out venues to this day. She also does something most artist do not do, She writes her own music. I know that she was inducted with her Fleetwood Mac band mates. There are not to many people out there that can have a sucessful solo career as well as a sucessful career in a band at the same time. My vote is for the Queen of Rock Stevie Nicks!!!!

Posted by Sara on Tuesday, 07.24.07 @ 10:48am

Stevie Writes her own songs. Lyndsey did not help Stevie out with her songs. Stevie has said several times that she wished that her and Lyndsey could have written a song together. Stevie writes songs that reflect her life in some way.

Posted by sara on Tuesday, 07.24.07 @ 10:53am

My understanding is that Buckingham had a pretty big hand in helping to write and arrange her Fleetwood Mac-era tunes. She may have written the lyrics and come up with some musical ideas, but I think a lot of the music of her songs came from Buckingham (whether or not he was officially given songwriting credit or not). He was basically Fleetwood Mac's musical arranger in that era.

As for her solo career, it does not reach the level of RRHOF induction. No way. Prince came up with the music for her biggest solo hit, "Stand Back". She had a decent and respectable solo career, but not one that needs to be enshrined in the Hall. Her induction with Fleetwood Mac is enough.

Posted by Dezmond on Tuesday, 07.24.07 @ 13:05pm

You know, Stevie Nicks seems to be a rite of passage for a lot of young girls even today. It's like she has nine lives and Bella Donna and the The Wild Heart were two of the best albums by a female from the 80s. I really think she's underrated. PEOPLE STILL TALK ABOUT HER. She seems to keep influencng and mesmerizing people today. I think it's because she's so original. There is absolutely no one like her.

I really think she deserves to be inducted on her solo merit. She writes 80% of her songs herself!

I don't get the critics. There is a reason why even young girls today talk about her more than Janis Joplin, Linda Rondstadt, Carole King, Bonnie Raitt and Joni Mitchell. Her music has stood the test of time better than theirs has and IT'S REALLY GOOD INFLUENTIAL MUSIC.

P.S. Men like her just as much as women.

Posted by Gary on Monday, 09.10.07 @ 17:15pm

I thought Stevie would be a GIVEN in 2006 - her first year of eligibility. Unfortunately she is probably being passed over because she is inducted as a member of Fleetwood Mac and since there is such a short list and so many qualified to be on it - they've justified her omission on that basis, I'm sure.

For everyone younger than their 40's I suggest you pick up The Mirage video - or her solo work on Live at Red Rocks (or revisit it) and tell me this girl is not a rock and roll chick!! Better yet, search her on youtube - sisters of the moon or Rhiannon from the 7o's) You've got to be kidding me - I think the passage of time is making people forget just how amazing she was (and still is).

Both Stevie and Lindsey have stated that he was her soul mate and knew what to do with her songs as the musical arranger and basically the producer of the Fleetwood Mac albums, however, she has proven herself over and over again as a solo artist. If it were truly only Lindsey that was responsible for her songs - her solo career would have failed. As far as hit songs, if you know anything about her, she's not a pop writer and does not write with the goal of making the top 10 list. That's even more impressive and more indicative of a true artist and songwriter. She is a deep and intense writer - right from the heart. You cannot listen to her music and not feel the intensity of the moment in which she is writing about. In fact, to this day, she still tears up when performing. Putting the audience in that moment is a true gift.

Posted by Sandra on Monday, 10.1.07 @ 11:38am

Never under-estimate the VALUE of Gold-dust.

After all these years Stevie Nicks is still the most unique and influencial female of rock and roll.

Consider the radio without her music? Our world would simply be less interesting. Who else has taken us to ... a room with some lace and paper flowers? Or has ask us to consider our lives .. .like a strand in the wind, in the web that is my own I will begin again?

With all certainty, Stevie Nicks will be inducted into the Cleveland Hall - remember Gold-dust doesn't lose its value like Paperdolls.

Rock on Gold-dust woman!

Posted by OSURod on Monday, 11.26.07 @ 23:00pm

Prince didn't write the music to stand back hahahaahah omg all he did was add synthesizer to it at the end of the song. Also, for your information that song ''the chain'' which is a very popular rumours song was written by stevie nicks. lindsey helped arrange some of the music on her songs that is true however talk to me and stand back aren't the only two songs that she's known for. There's also edge of 17, stop dragging my heart around, leather and lace (which was written by stevie nicks for a friend of hers) rooms on fire and many others that remind us of how great she really is as a SOLO artist and um i don't believe i see LINDSEY in any of those accredited songs..also he was never accredited for dreams which is fleetwood mac's only #1 hit so for the person who says that the best fm songs are the ones where stevie isn't the lead i would rephrase that. not to mention that lindsey was going to tour and make an album but his label dropped him and said they wouldn't do another fm album without stevie so that was the reason for the reunion fm is nothing without stevie but i do give each of them credit for the talent they do posses also whoever said benatar, madonna, and clapton were leagues ahead of stevie...hahahahaha that's hilarious.

Posted by BooBerry on Wednesday, 12.5.07 @ 21:09pm

OH and right on sandra i am 27 but i still know the value of good music and the incredible gift stevie has given over the years she is way underrated and it's a shame

Posted by BooBerry on Wednesday, 12.5.07 @ 21:12pm

i don't know about all this talk of queen of rock and roll. If anyone is considered the queen of rock and roll i think it would be ann wilson. She's influenced more people tha stevie nicks.

Posted by Brian T. on Monday, 01.14.08 @ 22:57pm

i'm disappointed with this year's inductees. i believe stevie nicks should've been inducted long before madonna and john mellencamp. she had 2 careers; 1 with fleetwood mac and the other as a solo artist. just because she's already been inducted as a member of fleetwood mac doesn't mean she shouldn't also be credited for her solo albums/songs especially the #1's. i completely disagree with some of the comments especially the one's that say that she didn't write fleetwood mac's or her solo songs. most of fleetwood mac's songs were wrote by her and lyndsey buckingham (not all but most); and the same thing goes for her solo's, most of her songs were wrote by her. that should be one thing that's noted when a person becomes eligible to be inducted. to me, she's the queen of rock and roll. did ann wilson have a solo career? NO!!!! you have to give credit where credit's due. and i think her credit's been due for a few years especially over pat benetar, madonna, and john mellencamp. she's known just as much for her solo career as she was when she was a member of fleetwood mac. i think the rock and roll hall of fame should take her into consideration for next years induction. she should've already been inducted.

P.S. i agree with georgehr3, Raymond, Kate, Bob Proulx, Sara, Gary, OSURod, and Sandra. i disagree 100% with Scott, and Chenders; but 200% with Dezmond, Creepozoid, SG, and Brian T.

Posted by amber on Monday, 03.10.08 @ 14:28pm

You have never seen Stevie perform if you think she shouldn’t be inducted on her solo work. She is a great performer an awesome song writer and has a voice that is second to none. So many performer of today have someone else write there music they are just a voice to someone else’s artistic talent. I never miss her when she plays the west coast. So please from all the fans, and there are many do the right thing and give her, her do.

Posted by D. Richner on Monday, 03.10.08 @ 23:20pm

Stevie for sure should be inducted, she has inspired many people to wanna be in rock n roll. and been there for many, who actually made it famous that she inspired. she is awesome to her fans, and she has such a sweet attitude. she works her ass off, and LOVES what she does. she needs to be in there solo! go stevie!

Posted by Lily on Tuesday, 03.11.08 @ 12:01pm

stevie nicks should deffidently be in the rock and roll hall of fame.
shes amazing.
i love her

Posted by Bob on Friday, 09.5.08 @ 13:28pm

It makes me sick that Stevie Nicks hasn't even been nominated by the HOF committee, much less inducted yet. And could people please do their homework before posting comments with erroneous information. Lindsey Buckingham did help arrange Stevie's songs but he did NOT help write the lyrics or the music on any of them.
Anyway, look at the catagories they supposedly take into account to induct people and if you check it out you'll see that she fits the bill. How many artists who've been in music as long as she has are still able to tour every other year and sell enough tickets to play the same arenas as they did at the height of their career? And I agree with whoever said that Madonna isn't even Rock. When are these people in charge of who gets in the Hall going to open their eyes? I hope it doesn't get as bogus as the Grammies. Sheesh.

STEVIE NICKS HAS ALREADY BE INDUCTED! She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 with her fellow band mates from Fleetwood Mac. Considering she has already received this honor as a part of a band, she will be NOT be inducted again as a solo performer.

Posted by jack on Wednesday, 11.26.08 @ 09:56am

She BETTER get inducted as a solo artist. She is the best of the best in rock and roll female acts of all time. But then again, Metallica getting a shot before: Yes, The Cars, CHICAGO FOR CHRIST SAKES, and last but not least, Mr. Stevie Ray Vaughan. Maybe they should take another look at the crazy order they are putting them in. Rock on Stevie~ My Sister of the Moon!

Posted by StevieGyrl on Sunday, 12.7.08 @ 16:40pm

I can't figure this one out. Yes, I know she has has solo success, but people keep claiming she has somehow influenced hundreds upon hundreds of young women. Tell you what. Let's begin around the time of "Edge of Seventeen", and figure out just who it is she has really influenced:

Joan Jett? - Not really. Jett was around in the 70's as well.
Pat Benatar? - See above.
Madonna? - Far more influenced by disco/MTV/synthesizers.

Cyndi Lauper? - Do you hear any of Stevie, either Mac or solo, in Lauper? Maybe something like Time after Time - maybe

Lita Ford? - See Joan Jett
Vixen (or for that matter any all-girl 80's metal)? - Never heard Stevie go metal

Hole/L7/Breeders/ (any riot grrls) - influenced more by punk - hard to say with any musical degree

Alanis Morrissette? - Initially dance music, if you'll recall from her Canadian days

Sarah McLachlan/Jewel, etc.? - more Joni Mitchell folk than Stevie rock

Avril Lavigne - 1% punk, 99% shopping malls

Evanescence? - Dracula's Daughter

She belongs in w/the Mac, and she is. Now just who DID she influence solo?

Posted by Cheesecrop on Sunday, 12.7.08 @ 17:33pm

as much as i would love to see stevie nicks inducted; i doubt it will happen.

most liely it will be the same scenario
as tom petty; inducted with the bands they
"fronted" but most likely not inducted as a soloist.

Posted by baw "the lumberjack" on Tuesday, 12.9.08 @ 15:07pm

Stevie came on the rock scene after janis joplin and before blondie and madonna. Heart came on the scene around the same time as stevie. Both should be in the rrhof. Stevie especially because of her career with fm and her solo career. 9-16-09 7:15am. Ricky.

Posted by Ricky parker on Friday, 01.16.09 @ 06:13am

I feel Her solo career has nothing to do w/ Fleetwood Mac. So she deserve to be a part of this moment.she gives more then she receives. i think it's time she know for all her hard work in and out of the music business. rocks on Stevie. I appreciate all the work u do for our soldiers.

If that's the case, she stands no chance, providing that she isn't chosen as the safe option over a Motley Crue or the like.

And what's with all this "she gives more than she receives" stuff? Is this another attempt to plow over the criteria by using the charity concert - goody-goody plan? Check out the Goo Goo Dolls page, especially the comments about "bringing canned goods to the show" (lol- that get's me all the time)

Posted by Cheeseecrop on Wednesday, 01.21.09 @ 06:18am

How can Stevie Nicks not be considered for induction?
Her body of solo work exceeds her work with Fleetwood Mac by leaps and bounds.
I am amazed by some of the commentaries by some of the lesser informed on this page. She has been publicly acknowledged by Sheryl Crow, Vanessa Carlton and the Dixie Chicks as being an influence.
As far as her charity work goes, I do know she gave iPods loaded with music away to injured soldiers and she helped with some environmental causes - I also know charity accounts for nothing in the induction process, since there is no criteria other than having hung out for more than 25 years after the release of your first album. That is why I don't know why some of you are commenting on how folks want her charity work to circumvent the criteria?
People get a grip. Stevie has a respectable solo career worthy of admission to the HOF. Are there others who deserve to be admitted ahead of her, very likely. But that doesn't mean you have to crush her achievements as a sign of showing support to other artists.

Posted by mikegraham on Monday, 02.2.09 @ 11:57am

I can't believe a discussion about Stevie is even taking place. Stevie Nicks as a stand alone artist is the most successful of Fleetwood Mac. On her own, she is credited with a unique sound VERY different than FM. Stop Draggin My Heart Around, Leather and Lace, Edge of Seventeen, Stand Back, If Anyone Falls, Talk To Me, and the list can go on and on...She has collaborated (solo) with some of the most influential artists of her day (Tom Petty / Don Henley). I don't even think it is a question. Moreover, there is a Madonna because of trailblazers like Stevie Nicks.

Posted by Adrienne on Thursday, 07.9.09 @ 13:03pm

Well, Stevie certainly has some good material in her solo work. The Tom Petty duet was great as was "Edge of Seventeen", but still I'm not sure if it's worthy enough for HoF induction. I have to say no.

Posted by Aaron O'Donnell on Thursday, 07.23.09 @ 17:57pm

I think Nicks created her own genre. She was the first bjork and the first woman to really champion that train-of-thought songwriting. There is no one like her. Sheryl Crow and Courtney Love both cite her as influence. Many people cite her as an influence.

Her solo career merits a Hall of Fame credit. Bella Donna, in my opionion, is probably the best classic rock album EVER by a woman. The Wild Heart is one of the most passionate.

She will never get in though. She didn't even get a grammy for Edge of Seventeen, probably the best rock song by a female artist. Infact, she has never gotten a grammy for her solo work although she has been nominated many times. That is very telling. At least, she has stood the test of time.

Stevie Nicks Rocks My World!

Posted by XXX on Thursday, 12.17.09 @ 04:42am

Stevie DID wright all of the songs she was credited for. You can easily find demos for almost every song she had contributed to Fleetwood Mac with just her and a piano. She is a major influence, a fantastic artis and deserves to be inducted to the RRHOF on her own.

Posted by Dario on Thursday, 01.7.10 @ 12:48pm

"Stevie Nicks is the Queen of Rocking Roll. She is also known as the First lady of Rock. You cannot be called the Queen of rock and not be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She is well known for her Solo Career. She has had more hits then Blondi and Blondi has been inducted already. I cannot believe some of the polls, I always thought that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was for rock artist not rap artist." With all due respect, Sara: First, I believe someone said that Rolling Stone bestowed that title upon her, and if you accept that as fact you must also accept it as the undisputed truth that Kurt Cobain is the 12th greatest guitarist of all time, and even though I don't play guitar I call bullshit on that, so I'm sure knowledgeable guitarists would as well. Second, Ann Wilson, Pat Benatar, Joan Jett and Lita Ford would probably be considered by many people to be worthy of that title. Third, sales and chart success are not major factors. Fourth, I believe Blondie was very important to new wave. Fifth, they didn't call it the "Rock" Hall, they called it the "Rock 'n' Roll" Hall of Fame, and R'N'R is the bastard offspring of many styles. Rap also has it's roots partially in R'N'B, just like Rock, therefore the important rappers do belong.

As for Stevie, I think she's a fine singer, and her solo career did produce some fine hits. I'm sure she is a role model to female musicians, as I know that Courtney Love and Sheryl Crow look up to her, so she has partially hit the Influence department. Innovation and Impact are lacking, though. I wouldn't mind her being inducted, but there are other snubs that need addressing first (if you want to know who, just ask.)

Posted by Sam on Wednesday, 02.17.10 @ 19:54pm

Stevie Nicks should be inducted. Just read the list of solo performers, and you'll see many guys with less impressive careers already in. The Hall diminishes itself by neglecting women. Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstadt, Ann and Nancy Wilson and Pat Benatar should all be inducted, and if the Hall wants to be an accurate and fair representation of the genre, this should be done asap.

Just curious Sam -- who's on your list of snubs? I have my own "list", but always interested in other's opinions!

Posted by Chris on Saturday, 04.3.10 @ 20:48pm

Stevie Nicks got in with Fleetwood Mac and thats all that needs to be done. I agree with Sam 100% on his reasoning. Also I disagree with the idea that neglects women.

Aretha Franklin
Diana Ross, Florence Ballard & Mary Wilson w/The Supremes
Lavern Baker
Tina Turner w/Ike Turner
Ruth Brown
Etta James
Janis Joplin
Martha Reeves, Rosalind Ashford, Betty Kelly, Lois Reeves & Annette Sterling w/Martha And The Vandellas
Gladys Knight w/The Pips
Shirley Alston Reeves, Addie Harris, Doris Kenner-Jackson & Beverly Lee w/The Shirelles
Joni Mitcell
Stevie Nicks & Christine McVie w/Fleetwood Mac
Cass Ellitot & Michelle Phillips w/The Mamas & The Papas
Cleotha Staples, Mavis Staples, Pervis Staples & Yvonne Staples w/ The Staple Singers
Bonnie Raitt
Brenda Lee
Chrissie Hynde w/The Pretenders
Debbie Harry w/Blondie
Ronnie Spector, Estelle Bennett & Nedra Talley w/The Ronnettes
Patti Smith
Agnetha Faltskog & Anni-Frid Lyngstad w/ABBA

Thats 40 women inducted as Performers. You also have 6 women early influences and 3 female non-performer.

There are a few women that I think have been snubbed:

Carole King (as a performer, see is in as a non-performer)
The Crystals/Darlene Love
Donna Summer
Pat Benatar
Patsy Cline

Also Maureen Tucker with Velvet Underground
Dusty Springfield
Tina Weymouth with talking heads
Maybe other ones also

Thanks Roméo! Totally missed out on those.

There are also five women who were inducted in the Early Influence category:

Billie Holiday
Mahalia Jackson
Wanda Jackson
Ma Rainey
Bessie Smith

"Just curious Sam -- who's on your list of snubs? I have my own "list", but always interested in other's opinions!" - Chris

I'll have to divide this up into categories.

Induct now, no questions asked:

-Joy Division
-New Order
-Deep Purple
-Judas Priest
-Thin Lizzy
-T. Rex
-Iron Maiden
-King Crimson (not all that familiar with them, but logically...)
-The Smiths
-Alice Cooper
-Kraftwerk (see King Crimson)
-Gang of Four

If I think of more I'll let you know
Debatable, but there is a case to be made:

-Stevie Ray Vaughan
-Motley Crue
-Def Leppard
-MC5 (see King Crimson)
-Emerson, Lake & Palmer
-Black Flag
-Megadeth (eligible this year)
-The Runaways
-Stone Roses (see Megadeth)
-The Miracles (see King Crimson)
-Chicago (if what Roy says is correct)

That'll do for now. Unfortunately, having that many names dilutes the Hall, so we may have to cut some names for the second list. I refuse to cut any of those names from the 1st list, however. If you'd like me to defend these choices I'll certainly try; in fact, some of them might be mutually exclusive for us. Later.

Damn it. The Cure has to get in there somewhere. And slot The New York Dolls into the no-brainer (induct now, no questions asked) list (see King Crimson.

Posted by Sam on Thursday, 04.8.10 @ 17:11pm

OF COURSE Stevie Nicks should be inducted for Her Solo contributions!!!
I mean come on already, what are they waiting for??? She IS the First Lady of Rock-n-Roll after all...
Besides if Mick had not asked Buckingham to join the Band, and had He not insisted that He and Stevie were a pair, take 'em or leave 'em, would We even still be talking about Fleetwood Mac itself all these years later; I doubt it...

Posted by Buddy on Tuesday, 04.13.10 @ 20:01pm

That's only half true. FM had developed a cult following by then, and in the late 60's and early 70's were one of Britain's most respected and acclaimed blues-rock bands. Besides, we're only talking about Stevie within the context of her solo career; anything done within FM is, hypothetically, irrelevant (though seperate inductions for 3/4th of The Beatles brings that into question.) For example, I feel there's a case to be made for Ozzy to be inducted for his solo career, but I don't feel it would be fair to bring his work with Sabbath into it...

Posted by Sam on Tuesday, 04.20.10 @ 19:59pm

I really enjoy Stevie and there is no question about her work with Fleetwood Mac. But like some other acts outside of their group- her solo work, overall, falls short of Fleetwood Mac. For the same reasons I don't think we'll be seeing Mick Jagger in as a solo act, or anyone else from Fleetwood Mac. There are some exceptions- Paul McCartney, along with Wings for part of his run- but they're the exception.

Posted by JBR on Sunday, 05.23.10 @ 09:01am

I don't think Paul McCartney, John or George should've been inducted, simply because now we've got people campaining for Ringo to get in as well when he's just as unworthy of a second induction.

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 05.23.10 @ 20:17pm

There are not too many artist still selling out concerts at 62 years old...The 10 albums released by Stevie Nicks are Gold or Platnium selling, not to many artist if any can say that..Some of Stevie Nicks best songs are on her solo albums..Most people have only heard a handful of her solo songs as well as her FWM songs on the radio..but have you ever tried buying an album and listening to the other songs? The fact is Stevie started with Bella Donna which was a instant hit 29 years ago and her albums are still sellings in 2010. Lets not forget that her more recent albums are selling without airplay..which is a acomplishment in itself! She has the biggest fan following of anyone I know..they have a night club named after her called House Of a Thousand Stevies,let's not forget they made a movie called Gypsy 83 about a Stevie Nicks fan..every year they have one of the biggest Stevie Nicks fans Birthday Bash in San Fran to celebrate her b-day, in which thousands upon thousand attend..there are songs written about her..VH1 has done a biggest Stevie Nicks fan special on her..Youtube is loaded with more Stevie Nicks vids then anyone else that I know of. Stevie not only sings, but she writes 99% of her songs..Stevie has influenced so many people including myself with her music. The RARHOF is a joke..There are artist that made the list who were one hit or one album wonders..where people like Stevie Ray Vaughn and Creedance Clearwater Revival have yet to make the list..whether the artist along with Stevie Nicks as a solo artist makes it or not, there music will stand the test of time and continue to impact generations to come as they still do! and no award will change that! the fans is all the recogniton an artist needs, and Stevie has got more then most! and that alone is enough!

Has anyone ever given anything to you
In your darkest hours
Did you ever give it back
Well, I have
I have given that to you
If it's all I ever do
This is your song---"Stevie Nicks"

Stevie should definetley be inducted as a solo artist. Edge of 17, stand back, talk to me, i can't wait, enchanted, beauty and the beast, if anyone falls, fall from grace, trouble in shangra la,sorcerer. I won't list the songs she wrote for fleetwood mac. But really would they have been that big without her. Who really wants to hear Lindsey or christine. Stevie made that band and it is time she got her due!!!!!!!

Posted by scott harm on Friday, 10.8.10 @ 03:09am

Christine is just as good a singer as Stevie (my dad prefers Christine by far.) Stevie did get her due... with Fleetwood Mac.

Posted by Sam on Friday, 10.8.10 @ 12:14pm

Oddly enough, WPLR in New Haven has played exactly ONE song by a female artist since around ten this morning, "The Edge of Seventeen." I guess that's an honor, that even the pigs at PLR like her.

While I agree with the idea that Christine is just as good a singer, I also think Stevie belongs in the Hall as a solo artist. Christine Perfect's career before FM, as a solo and with Chicken Shack, isn't extensive enough.

Although her version of "I'd Rather Go Blind" is, well, perfect.

Posted by Bill Reich on Saturday, 11.6.10 @ 14:58pm

How she's still not in as a solo artist is beyond me... Ask Cheryl Crow among other successful female performers who one of their greatest influences was... show Stevie the love.

Posted by Bill Martin on Sunday, 03.20.11 @ 21:02pm

"It's no coincidence that the best Fleetwood Mac songs are the ones where she isn't the lead vocalist."

Seconded. Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie are what really made that band work, Stevie was just the pretty face IMO. I'd take stuff like "Go Your Own Way", "Big Love" and "Hold Me" over that overhyped crap like "Dreams" and "Landslide".

Posted by Jim on Sunday, 03.20.11 @ 22:23pm

Also, she WAS influential. But it was as a member of Fleetwood Mac, not as a soloist.

Posted by Jim on Sunday, 03.20.11 @ 22:25pm

According to Billboard Magazine, Stevie Nicks is only artist to maintain concurrent platinum-selling careers as a member of a band and a solo artist. From 1979 to 1989 she was particularly prolific as a writer, performer, multi-platinum selling/Grammy nominated solo artist, fashion icon, sex symbol, who released 4 million sellers with FM and four million selling solo albums that generated 10 top 40 solo hits (Stop Draggin My Heart Around, Leather & Lace, Edge of Seventeen, After the Glitter Fades, Stand Back, If Anyone Falls, Nightbird, Talk to Me, I Can't Wait, and Rooms in Fire, which not only was Billboard's #2 rock track of 1989, but the only entry by a woman that made the top 50 year end chart. She topped the rock and dance charts, and many non-single album tracks made the rock radio charts, such as the live version of Edge, etc. She sold out the same venues that MAC would play and earned 8 Grammy nominations. #1 album Bella Donna, just certifed 5 million U.S. sales is landmark but even double-platinum Wild Heart has sold more than all of McVie and Buckingham's solo albums COMBINED. Neither artist, who employed tons of credited co-writers, had earned a Gold solo album. Stevie, who plays piano and guitar, brought polished demos to the table for Tusk and Mirage. Sara - Tusk's biggest chart hit - sounds almost identical to the demo since all they did was remove some parts played by guys like Tom Moncrieff. FM didn't like the song, which Stevie wrote by herself on piano. but she begged Mick, who revealed that he encountered difficulty with with the percussion elements and ended up using brushes, played on top of Stevie's piano demo. Her uncredited piano playing appears on the album. She was the sole writer of the music and lyrics, but just like every musician, would work out arrangements with other players. Gyspy souned like a hit in demo form recorded with Tom Petty. but John McVie and Fleetwood's touches made it sound FM. Christine had Robbie Patton's hellp with Hold Me. Lindsey came with crap songs.unfinished (just like Lindsey and Christine did). Stevie didn't need him to be successful, her voice alone would have done it. and s but sexism comes into play. Lindsey has never produced or arranged a hit song for anyone so his skill as producer are unproven. He didn't produce Rumours or the White Album. Tusk is great Tango is too slick and distant; SYW is awful Mirage forgettable. He has made it on his guitar playing and his amazing looks. IF he wasnt' hot, he would not have been give so may shots at a solo career. Stevie is 63, so its bullshit to say beauty is the only reason for her popularity.
Who the following have named Stevie as an influence: the Dixie Chicks, who scored their biggest crossover hit with their cover of Landslide, Courtney Love (Hole released its cover of Gold Dust Woman as a single), Michelle Branch, Belinda Carlisle, Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow, Nadia Ali, Taylor Swift, Laura Branigan, Sarah McLachlan, Kelly Clarkson, Vanessa Carlton, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Smashing Pumpkins who had an alt hit with a cover of Landslide, Tori Amos, Delta Goodrem h, and even Whitney Houston, who recorded Has Anyone Ever Written for her recent comeback CD. Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest singers of the Rock era was predictably male-dominated (women accounted for 25% of the list!) but Stevie was included alongside R&B, country, folk classic and alt rock women, because her voice is of equal or greater value than the ability to play a guitar well. VH-1 100 greatest women musicians put her #12 alongside Patsy Cline, Annie Lennox, Madonna, and the top-ranked Aretha Franklin, who released her first album of new material in seven years on May 3, the same day Stevie released her In Your Dreams. Stevie debuted at #6 with 55,000 copies sold; Aretha, #54 with 8,500 copies, 20,000 to date despite tons of TV app. Stevie had to cancel hers promo duties because of sickness. She will be a double-inductee, Lindsey will never be inducted as a solo artist because he's had no impact in that role. He's a nice guy but his last two CDs soldl about 20,000 copies. P.S. it's a fact that Stevie gets 40% of the take when touring with FM. They pay her like she's the most important member, because SHE IS.

Posted by Roy on Tuesday, 11.6.12 @ 05:46am

Objectively - no. I don't think so. Her solo career was too one-dimensional. She relied on her sex appeal in a way other female artists didn't. And she only did what was popular, she never would do anything that wasn't popular or groundbreaking. She cared too much about that stuff.

The other solo artists on the list were innovators, musicians, and for the most part, pushed envelopes and boundaries. Nicks didn't push envelopes, she played it safe. While she wrote her own melodies, her actual songs were arranged by others. It was Lindsey Buckingham, Petty, Iovine that made her music edgy. Her chords were simple. SO while talented writer, I don't think she merits a solo induction. There are other women, who while not as popular, I think were more dimensional than Nicks. If it were based on popularity and influence alone, she'd get in, but I think you guys overstate her influence musically. Her image is more tied to fashion than music.

Posted by Lane on Monday, 02.25.13 @ 03:26am

I think, reading the comments, some of you are way too biased...btw. I think if you look at her career (solo) objectively, you'd see that while popular, her music just doesn't have the same impact as Clapton's, Lennon's, McCartney's, etc. Nicks is talented, but she's not even close to that tier. She relied on others a little too much to make her music what it was I think to be on a list with musicians like that.

Posted by Lane on Monday, 02.25.13 @ 03:30am

Being a professionally trained musician who makes a great living of what i do, I can say the following of Nicks: She may not be the best composer, the best technique wise vocalist, the best poet... But as a package she is the real deal. She's got that honest, almost magical touch that reaches out to millions. She preserves true emotion in her art in that way that very few can achieve. She is everything and more. Get the woman in the RORHOF already. She belongs there.

Posted by Dach on Thursday, 07.4.13 @ 19:30pm

I could not agree more Dach, Stevie definitely deserves to be inducted as a solo artist.

Oh come on... the Queen of Rock and Roll, and only 11%? I know it's mainly due to the fact that she's already in with Fleetwood Mac, but considering just how successful she was outside of the band, especially considering Christine and Lindsey's solo stuff didn't do NEARLY as well outside of the band, not to mention how many artists site her as an influence, I think she's worth it. Both of my parents had a copy of her album when they moved in together. They didn't have that many overlapping copies of any albums, but there were two "Belladonna" albums up in the collection.

Of course she deserves to be inducted. Yes she was already with Fleetwood Mac. However, standing alone in her solo career she has more than earned her way. She has ROCKED IT! NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! INDUCTION is WELL DESERVED!

Stevie nicks has not only been a strong force in Fleetwood Mac, but has also had a great long solo career. Also she has made music with other great artists such as Tom Petty, Kenny Logins, Don Henley, Walter Egan , she can keep up with the big boys and is long over due for her place in the rock hall of fame. she is truly a musical poet.

Posted by Denny on Thursday, 09.25.14 @ 21:52pm

When you list Edge of Seventeen as her only essential song, I don't know what you are smoking. Clearly you have neglected Standback and Leather and Lace. Both of which were huge hits. Not to mention her full body of work in the 8 albums she has recorded to date which contain many gems that made the top 100. She has by far surpassed the criteria to be inducted as a solo artist in the rock and roll hall of fame.

Stevie Nicks has graced many lives across generations with not only many classical hits individually and with Fleetwood Mac, but with so many other independent artists. She has topped many charts and supported many social causes such as the Arizona Heart Institute and our valued military veterans. She is a rock and roll ballerina, a gypsy, a poet, and a life-long inspiration. She is a legend despite social recognition, but I feel confident that her formal induction is only a matter of time for such a timeless artist.

For the nay sayers. How did the individual Beattle members all get in. Do you think Ringo Starr had a solo career like Stevie's? Oh and while still a member of Fleetwood Mac? Go back and look at the inductees. Stevie solo still is better than so many. Clearly this woman should be in.

Posted by Jim on Tuesday, 12.16.14 @ 22:34pm

I feel Stevie should have her place in the rock and roll hall of fame for several reasons:she's a singer/ songwriter , a successfull member and contributor to a work famous band called Fleetwoodmac, a successfull solo artist,artist and photographer, and has been able to do all this for almost 50 years without having to take her cloths off to sell her platinum albums and sold out concerts.

Posted by sheila on Tuesday, 03.31.15 @ 19:36pm

Saw her perform last weekend in St. Louis with Fleetwood Mac. (See my following post on Fleetwood Mac) Stevie still HAS it. She's still got her voice, her moves and her personality. And, as some would suspect, it was a bit weird. She kept rambling on her stories, some of which were interesting. I know she's had drug problems in the past, so that's pretty evident. She probably had work done on her face, but nonetheless she looked great!

Does she belong in the RRHOF as a solo artist? Absolutely. Unfortunately, we all know there are several female solo acts in her field that are waiting to get in.....

Posted by Jason Voigt on Tuesday, 03.31.15 @ 20:50pm

Posted by Diane Hogett on Tuesday, 03.31.15 @ 22:33pm

I have seen many comments for why Stevie should not be in the HOF obviously written by people who have no real clue as to the extent of Stevie's solo career. Madonna and Pat Benatar, though very talented and iconic in their own right, are not even in the same league. Name 30 songs that they wrote to their own credit. Nope, you can't. Give the Queen her place in the Hall, she earned it!!! She is an icon, a world class songwriter, singer, performer, and humanitarian. Her solo work and career rivals many (male and female), and it is time to give her this honor. Otherwise, the HOF is the Hall of Shame.

Stevie Nicks has been a pioneer for strong women in rock. She continues to be relevant today. With out her, we may never have had the number of young ladies that currently grace the music scene today. Adam Levine (Maroon 5 and The Voice) claims she is the best female voice in rock. That not withstanding, Stevie's lyrics alone make her worthy for her place as a solo artist in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Stevie Nicks is the "only" artist "ever" to carry both a group and solo career simultaneously. Her catalog is huge filled with beautiful works in both Fleeetwood Mac and her own solo career. She is... The Queen Goddess of Rock~n~Roll. There is no other like her. I'm truly shocked she is not in the RnR Hall of Fame. Once in a million years a lady like her rises. 🌙✨🎩

Stevie Nicks should be the first woman in history voted into the hall of fame as a member of a group and as a solo artist.
Many male singers have been voted in this way.
Why not Stevie?
The fact that Ringo Starr was inducted this year and Stevie Nicks is not is laughable.
Joan Jett's solo career better than Steve Nicks' solo career? Another joke.
Joan Jett should never have been voted in ahead of Stevie Nicks. Nicks' solo career far surpasses her and many, many female artists who are in the hall of fame.
Her solo career is hall of fame worthy. It is time.

I'll go ahead and add another 2 cents on Stevie Nicks. Again, I feel she does deserve to get in as a solo artist. Her solo career was so-so, but it was her rock and roll spirit and presence that should get her in. I believe something more like a 'witchcraft' presence with a little gothic mixed in! Also, you gotta take a look at her influence. I mean, just look at the list on Wikipedia...too many to mention on here. I will include her when I do my predictions for the RRHOF Nominations next month.

Posted by Keith on Thursday, 07.7.16 @ 19:13pm

Stevie Nicks will be Nominated & Inducted hopefully this year. With Fleetwood Mac (already Inducted) but her solo work impressive as well. I liked Stand Back and Stop Dragging My Heart Around with Tom Petty. Her longevity and dedication to music has been inspiring to many musicians especially women. It would be interesting to see a woman as a 2x inductee. There are several men inducted twice like Paul Simon, Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart etc. I think Stevie Nicks is deserving for sure of a solo induction.

Posted by KING on Sunday, 07.31.16 @ 04:15am

1 "essential album"????? She has written, performed, and sold millions of of her 10 Gold or Platnium records... She is a prolific writer, she's had years of successful solo concert tours, and she is loved by millions of fans as far more than "just a sexy face". Then there is her influence on other performers, her many performances and recordings as a duet or guest of other bands, and then there is all of her humanitarian work on top of all else she has done...

Posted by Frank Abney on Saturday, 12.17.16 @ 21:06pm

Stevie Nicks is already in as a member of Fleetwwod Mack and that is quite enough. A solo induction in her case should not happen. Which is not taking anything away from her, but a second induction? no way.

Posted by Kim Koontz on Thursday, 04.2.15 @ 01:53am

Bullshit. Frankie Valli did it in the '60s. The members of the Who were releasing solo projects while still working as a group. I'm sure there are plenty of other examples, too. You could argue that John Lennon, George Harrison, and Brian Wilson did it as well, though I wouldn't.

Posted by Philip on Wednesday, 09.27.17 @ 16:48pm

Phil Collins might be the ultimate example here since he was releasing solo albums while Genesis was active and his solo albums actually made the band more popular, which is a definite rarity. Or maybe Wu-Tang Clan's solo artists' records, same deal.

"Stevie Nicks is the "only" artist "ever" to carry both a group and solo career simultaneously

I like Stevie however Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues is doing exactly this at the present time!
The MB just finished a summer tour a few weeks ago for the 50th anniversary of the landmark lp "Days of future passed" Just this week he started a UK and New Zealand tour solo for
the "Winds of heaven"( a beautiful new song he wrote for an upcoming movie). He has been doing this for several years now and all are sold out!

The Moody Blues have been snubbed for almost 30 years and have NEVER been nominated once!

"Stevie Nicks is the "only" artist "ever" to carry both a group and solo career simultaneously

I like Stevie but John Lodge of the Moody Blues is doing exactly this at the present time!

He just finished a summer tour for the 50th anniversary of the landmark lp "Days of future passed". In a few weeks he is going to do a US tour for his solo lp "10,000 light years ago". This is the second year he has done this and the lp is fantastic! Mike Pinder and Ray Thomas worked on a song called "Simply Magic" on the lp.

In early 2018 the Moodies are doing sold out dates in Vegas and another sold out Moody Blues Cruise.

The Moody Blues have been snubbed for almost 30 years and have Never been nominated once.
