Stevie Nicks Credits "Game of Thrones" in Helping her Grief

Stevie Nicks Credits

Forming a world-famous band, writing music for decades, and overcoming all the obstacles count as only a few of Stevie Nicks accomplishments.

The Fleetwood Mac singer opened up recently about recent tragedies, both inside and outside her life. I didnt go [to the studio]. I didnt want to go. But it wasnt just that, I didnt want to go anywhere. I didnt leave the house for almost five months, said Nicks.

I worked on the edit of my documentary about the making of [her solo album] In Your Dreams. And then I got pneumonia. With my pneumonia and my mothers death I watched the entire first season of Game Of Thrones so that was great! That certainly took my mind off everything.

“George R.R. Martin is my age and it blows my mind that hes able to create this vast, interlinked world, Nicks said when asked if she can be considered a fan of the series. As a songwriter I write little movies. But I cant imagine sitting down and writing even one small book. But then probably somebody like him couldnt imagine writing Edge Of Seventeen or Rhiannon, couldnt write a whole little life in two verses and a chorus.

In addition to her explanation about “Game of Thrones, Nicks also commented on Cory Montieths death, saying, I cant remember who it was but somebody said, This is what will happen if you do heroin: you get really, really sick, youll throw up for hours, then youll have about an hour of a high. And then after that high youll start scraping the ground looking for more. Then for the rest of your life, probably, thats what you will do: search the world for that high. And youll never find it.
