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.

Now that you live a calmer, more sane life, do you still like to spend extravagantly or are you more frugal?
I'm more careful now in this world of financial stress. But I'm a rock star, so I still live like one, and I enjoy it. I'm not married and I don't have kids. I have a little Chinese crested Yorkie, and she has beautiful cashmere sweaters, and that's my biggest (expense). (If) she wants diamonds, I'm getting them.
