Aging Like Fine Wine

In 2013, Stevie Nicks joined former lover and bandmate Lindsey Buckingham on her 65th birthday to serenade the Las Vegas crowd with her timeless hits and one in particular made us melt, the everlasting “Landslide” Stevie wrote all those years ago. Watching the two of these iconic performers gives us chills after all these years, but the fact that Stevie was spending her birthday spreading her music just makes us love her that much more. 

“Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’, ’cause I’ve built my life around you but time makes you bolder, even children get older…”

Written about her give and take relationship with Lindsey while he was on the road, Stevie felt exhausted mentally and physically working as a waitress and cleaning lady. She decided to stay in a cabin in Aspen while Lindsey was away and felt inspired by her reflection against the snowy peaks of the white mountains and made a conscious decision to stick with Lindsey through the good and the bad.

Interesting Fact: Nicks wrote this the night before her dad, who was the president of Greyhound Bus Lines, was operated on at the Mayo Clinic.

We know from the interviews we have watched that this song means a lot to Stevie, so for her to share it on such a special occasion with the world- makes us love her and the song more than ever. Enjoy this incredible live performance of Stevie’s unforgettable hit “Landslide.”

+ Landslide Lyrics +

I took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
‘Til the landslide brought it down
Oh, mirror in the sky
What is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changin’ ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older too
And I’m getting older too
Oh, take my love, take it down
Climb a mountain and turn around

And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well the landslide will bring it down
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well the landslide will bring it down
The landslide will bring it down
