Stevie Nicks’ ‘love fest with James Bond’


The 66-year-old singer performed at the legendary venue in New York City with her band Fleetwood Mac earlier this week as part of their On with the Show tour.

And according to Page Six, Stevie met up with actor Daniel, who portrays James Bond in Skyfall and other forthcoming 007 movies, backstage at the event.

“It appeared to be a mutual love fest between Mr. Bond and the Gold Dust Woman,” a source told the outlet.

But there were no romantic sparks flying, as Daniel attended the concert with his stunning wife, fellow actress Rachel Weisz.

In addition to touring with Fleetwood Mac, Stevie is currently promoting her new solo album, 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault. The LP is compiled of new recordings based on demos Stevie sang between 1969 and 1987.

Mabel Normand is one of the songs from her eighth solo studio release that holds deep significance for Stevie, as the biographical tune is based on the life of the eponymous actress who died after struggling with a severe cocaine addiction.

“Give Mabel Normand a special listen. Mabel was an amazing actress and comedian from the '20s, and she was a terrible cocaine addict,” Stevie explained to Billboard magazine recently. “She eventually died of tuberculosis, but it was really her drug addiction that killed her. I saw a documentary of her in 1985, when I was at my lowest point with the blow. I was watching TV one night, the movie came on, and I really felt a connection with her. That's when I wrote the song. Less than a year later, I went to rehab at Betty Ford.”
