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.

This book is a light, quick read. At first it was interesting in learning about Stevie, Fleetwood Mac, and the music scene in the 70s and 80s. BUT, if you do any search on the book, you will find there are lots of errors, beginning on page 1 with the date of her birth. I don't know that much about Stevie/FM, but even I found several errors, like referring to JD Souther as very tall [he's not] or who wrote Because the Night ...

I then read a Rolling Stone article on 15 things you didn't know about the Rumours album, and several of them weren't mentioned in the book, and several others were different from what's in the book.

So, enjoy the light read, knowing that what you're reading probably isn't 100% accurate.
