In a recent Riff City interview, the award-winning songstress opens up to Jessica Pilot about her latest album In Your Dreams, working with former flame and Fleetwood Mac member Lindsey Buckingham*, and why quitting touring would be a “nightmare” for her (she’s been doing it since 1975!), even though it’s tiresome.
Nicks also talks about how she finds her inspiration for writing:
So you can be inspired by anything [...] So you go back to your beautiful hotel room and write a great poem, and maybe there’s a piano and you can put it to music. Or, you can be in your house, or in a car, driving to San Diego for two hours and think of something and get paper and pencil. People who schedule writing dates and say, ‘Okay I’m going to sit down and write with this person from 2 to 3 and then 4 to 6, and then I’ll have dinner and work from 9 until…’ Well, I just could never do that.
Head over to New York Public Media’s Arts & Culture Riff City for the full interview.
In the meantime, whether it’s writing a song or making a life change, how do YOU find your inspiration?
