Going Solo – #8

The countdown continues for the top 80’s solo artists who had been in successful 80’s bands:

8. Stevie Nicks – Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac is mostly known for their huge 1977 album Rumours. But they did have some success in the early 80’s with their 1982 album Mirage. The hits from that album included “Hold Me“, “Love in Store“, and “Gypsy“.
After that album, the band went on hiatus for a little while. So some members pursued solo albums.

The most successful was Stevie Nicks.

Before Mirage was released, Nicks released the album Bella Donna, which produced the hits “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” (#3), which was a duet with Tom Petty, “Leather and Lace” (#26), which was another duet with Don Henley, and “Edge of Seventeen” (#11).
After Mirage, Stevie continued her success with “Stand Back” (#5), which was followed by her next hit “If Anyone Falls” (#14), which came off the album The Wild Heart. Stevie’s next album, Rock a Little, was also a hit. It had the songs “Talk to Me” (#16), and “I Can’t Wait” (#4).
