"All you ever wanted to know about Fleetwood Mac's mesmerizing frontwoman." - People Magazine

"Davis is astute and respectful...adept in his literary analysis." - The New York Times Book Review

Stevie Nicks is a legend of rock, but her energy and magnetism sparked new interest in this icon. At sixty-nine, she's one of the most glamorous creatures rock has known, and the rare woman who's a real rock 'n' roller.

Gold Dust Woman gives "the gold standard of rock biographers" (The Boston Globe) his ideal topic: Nicks' work and life are equally sexy and interesting, and Davis delves deeply into each, unearthing fresh details from new, intimate interviews and interpreting them to present a rich new portrait of the star. Just as Nicks (and Lindsey Buckingham) gave Fleetwood Mac the "shot of adrenaline" they needed to become real rock stars-according to Christine McVie-Gold Dust Woman is vibrant with stories and with a life lived large and hard:
-How Nicks and Buckingham were asked to join Fleetwood Mac and how they turned the band into stars
-The affairs that informed Nicks' greatest songs
-Her relationships with the Eagles' Don Henley and Joe Walsh, and with Fleetwood himself
-Why Nicks married her best friend's widower
-Her dependency on cocaine, drinking and pot, but how it was a decade-long addiction to Klonopin that almost killed her
- Nicks' successful solo career that has her still performing in venues like Madison Square Garden
-The cult of Nicks and its extension to chart-toppers like Taylor Swift and the Dixie Chicks

Praise for Gold Dust Woman:

"A captivating portrait of the singer whose songwriting and stage presence gave the faltering British blues band a boost in the mid-1970s...Davis's candid, energetic book reveals the life of the woman who's arguably one of rock's greatest singer-songwriters." - Publisher's Weekly, starred review

"An entertaining rock biography." --Kirkus Reviews

"Davis is astute and respectful...adept in his literary analysis." --The New York Times Book Review
