Behind The Scenes Of Fleetwood Mac’s “Hold Me” Video Shoot With Stevie Nicks
June 24, 1982
Widely regarded as one of Fleetwood Mac’s best and most popular music videos, 1982’s ‘Hold Me’ was a labor of love for the band – and a serious exercise in patience! The video was shot on location in the Mojave desert and featured Stevie Nicks being painted by Lindsey Buckingham in the blistering heat, with Stevie then painting herself before traipsing across the desert in her red platform boots carrying her canvas.
The temperature that day was well over 100 degrees, understandably bothering Stevie who was dressed in a long red robe and trying to fight off the blistering heat while still following director Steve Barron’s directions.
In this rare, behind the scenes footage we get to see what a professional Stevie is as she navigates her way through an uncomfortable situation, never losing that amazing smile or treating anyone on the production team unkindly!
While we’re sorry that Stevie and the rest of Fleetwood Mac had such a hard time on the set of ‘Hold Me’, we’re so glad that they stuck it out to create what is now known as one of the best projects they’ve ever embarked on!
