Stevie Nicks says she would have married Joe Walsh
Stevie Nicks has said that out of all her past relationships that Joe Walsh was the love of her life.
She spoke about their brief love affair with Stephen Davis for his new book, Gold Dust Woman: The Biography Of Stevie Nicks.
According to The Daily Mail, Nicks who was also linked to Eagles frontman Don Henley, fell for the band’s guitarist in 1983 and revealed that when she meet Walsh she thought, “I can never be far from this person again.”
"We were probably the perfect, complete, crazy pair. He was the one I would have married, and that I would probably have changed my life around for a little bit, anyway. Not a lot. I loved him. I really looked after him, and that’s what probably scared Joe the most. We were busy superstars and we were doing way too much drugs. We were really, seriously drug addicts. We were a couple on the way to hell."
In 1986 Walsh called her and told her not to contact him again.
She spoke about their break up saying: "It nearly killed me. We had to break up or we thought we’d die. We were just too excessive. But there was no closure. It took me years to get over it — if I ever did. It’s very sad but at least we survived. There was no other man for me. I look back at all the men in my life, and there was only one that I can honestly say I could truly have lived with every day for the rest of my life, because there was respect and we loved to do the same things."
"I was very content with him all the time. That’s only happened once in my life. This man, if he’d asked me to marry him, I would have."
There was nothing more important than Joe Walsh — not my music, not my songs, not anything. He was the great, great love of my life.
