“She absolutely can’t sing”

2017 Los Angeles Film Festival - Opening Night Premiere Of Focus Features' "The Book Of Henry" - Red Carpetre: My cousin (female) who I haven’t spoken to or seen in about 25 years about Stevie Nicks

I’m sitting here nursing a sore back for the start of the third week, listening to Nicks’ first solo album. ‘After the Glitter Fades,’ other than really being a country song, always reminds me of when I lost my sportswriter job when The Cleveland Press folded in ’82.

And I know all the words to all the songs on this album.

Yeah. I handed in my Man Card a long time ago.

I don’t care anymore.

And sorry, Ann Therese (and Matt and Trey) , she may not sing well enough for your discerning ear but for me it’s her evocative voice has always been smooth as aural sex from a microphone.

And it reminds me of a time in my life where things weren’t so painful or difficult.

Holy Hell, she’s 69. How did that happen?

    She is one of my all time favorite artists and my karaoke go-to. She and Karen Carpenter.
    Oops. I’m not talking to you, remember. I’m too clingy. HA. Why do I still get notifications about your self indulgent blog btw? I’m still waiting for an apology, by the way …for the publicized lies. Thank you.
