...and a big sigh.
Yes, that woman is Stevie Nicks. Lindsey Buckingham is the man to her left, or to the right of the screen. The MAN. Stop looking for a woman.
This archival video shows Lindsey, who does not get nearly enough respect as a guitarist or a songwriter. I think this is because Stevie was so successful in overshadowing the rest of Fleetwood Mac during the early 1980s. She's no more talented than they are (in fact, I'd argue that she's LESS talented than Christine McVie or Lindsey, because she doesn't play a musical instrument), but she was very very good at self-promotion.
Boy, that sounds snarky, but I don't mean it quite in that way. The last thing I need is for Stevie fetishists to spam me with reader-submitted complaints about my lack of respect for their hero. I think she's great; I just think she gets an unfair amount of attention, given the relative talents of the other band members.
Remember: Stevie = WOMAN. Lindsey = MAN.
