Money Q&A with Stevie Nicks

With the band Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks wrote and sang a slew of memorable hits, including "Rhiannon," "Dreams" and "Landslide." She and the band also helped provide rock 'n' roll with one of its most interesting soap operas as band members married, divorced, hooked up and broke up -- all with each other. They fed off the drama, turning the romantic turmoil into myriad hits. Now, Nicks has released her first solo CD in 10 years, "In Your Dreams," featuring her usual brand of emotive, heart-on-her-sleeve poetry.

In your early days, you waited tables to support your then-boyfriend Lindsey Buckingham, didn't you?

Somebody needed to work, and it certainly wasn't going to be him. I think he telemarketed for one day. I worked at the Copper Penny. I cleaned Keith Olsen's house twice a week. (Olsen is a music producer who produced Fleetwood Mac.) I didn't have a problem making the money to support Lindsey and I and the rest of our friends who were making music at the house every day, because none of them could possibly have a real job.

Lindsey would go, "How come you're so happy when you come home from your waitress job?" And I would go, "Because I got to be out there with real people, and I made really good money that's paying for our house, our car and our food."
