Why do the above fans-with diverse backgrounds and interests-identify with Stevie Nicks so strongly? Nicks is known as one of the three singer/songwriters in the band Fleetwood Mac (whose 1977 album Rumours broke all previous records for album sales) and for her successful solo career throughout the 1980s. In the statements above, Nicks is described as a “one of those sirens on the rock,” “beautiful and fierce,” an embodiment of “amplified femininity” linked with adjectives like “frilly,” “dainty,” and “witchy” (though not without certain dichotomies). The fans quoted above were introduced to Nicks’s music by their sisters, mothers, aunts, and girlfriends, and thus Nicks functions as a reminder of female bonds for these avid listeners.
