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.

Fleetwood Mac was known for a serious rock-star lifestyle. What did you most like spending money on?

I enjoyed not being poor, because we were so poor for five years that we made a pact to never, ever look in a store window. So when we went to work for Fleetwood Mac and started getting $200 a week apiece -- and then, four weeks later, $400 a week apiece -- we were fascinated. We hadn't spent money in so long that we didn't know what to spend it on.

It took awhile to get to the point where I walked into that Jaguar place on Sunset Boulevard, and this lady said, "You can't buy a Jaguar." I went in with three of my friends, and she said, "You guys are, like, secretaries." I said, "No, we're not. I want that red Jaguar and I want it now!" I handed my business manager to her and he said, "You should sell her the car, because she can afford it." And I drove that car out of there.
