Rumoured no more: Long-discussed Stevie Nicks biography has a publication date

A comprehensive biography of Stevie Nicks now has a publication date, according to Amazon: October, 21, 2014. The Fleetwood Mac chanteuse’s story is being written by Stephen Davis, who helped bandmate/lover Mick Fleetwood compose his 1990 autobiography.

Nicks and Davis apparently met when he was at work on Fleetwood: My Life and Adventures in Fleetwood Mac. An autobiography from Fleetwood followed last year, which further detailed an on-and-off relationship that, along with Nicks’ failing partnership with Lindsey Buckingham, helped spark the blockbuster Rumours album in the late 1970s.

Talk of this Nicks bio — titled Gold Dust Woman, of course — has been around since at least late 2012, when St. Martin’s Press reportedly secured the publishing rights. Known to assiduously journal, Nicks has been the subject of several unauthorized books over the years, including the out-of-print Everything You Want to Know About Stevie Nicks (1985), Rock’s Mystical Lady (1993) and Lady of the Stars (1995), among others, but hasn’t committed to writing her own story yet.

More recently, Lindsay Lohan tried to acquire Nicks’ story for use in a proposed docudrama, to which the typically reticent Nicks reportedly replied: “Over my dead body.” A reunited Fleetwood Mac continue to tour, with a new album apparently in the works.
