However, Stevie Nicks latest offering IS ready for the world. “24 Karat Gold” gathers previously unreleased material from her songbook and voila demo into officially recorded versions. These are songs that, according to Nicks are “all over the internet…songs I wrote but never released and people kept saying, why don’t you record these songs for real. So after John McVie’s recent cancer scare, I had the time…an empty precious three months”. BUT (this is a big but) what her fans may not be ready for or the rest of the world for that matter is her memoir. According to Stevie, “All of the men I hung out with are on their third wives by now, and the wives are all under 30. If I were to write what really happened between 1972 and now, a lot of people would be very angry with me. It’ll happen some day, just not for a very long time. ” As her former lovers breathe a sigh of relief!
