Music 23/11/2017

Stevie Nicks was recently in Auckland for two shows as part of her 24 Karat Gold world tour.

During a break between her set she spoke about the time she decided to use one of Prince's songs for her own.

She was on her honeymoon when she heard a Prince song come on the radio and started writing a poem to it while her and her husband were driving.

As soon as they arrived at their destination the first thing she did was record it.

After recording it Stevie phoned Prince to ask about using the song she came up with and he agreed, even playing guitar and keyboard on the track.

What happened was, 'Stand Up' was a massive hit. It was a life changer.

Stevie Nicks performs this Friday in Dunedin with The Pretenders.
