I poured myself the biggest glass of red wine, I put Fleetwood Mac on my vinyl, I lit candles, and I legit started praying and looking for a sign. I have this incredible book that Stevie Nicks gave me in 2013 when my boyfriend [Glee co-star Cory Monteith] died. She gave me this art book of hers that she put notes in over the years and song lyrics, and then she rewrote personal notes for me that say things like, “Keep singing, and have faith.” I was looking through this book and praying that there was an answer in it, somewhere. And there was something in there that said, “The only thing that matters is you, and who you are.” That’s what I’ve been trying to do with this whole record – just connect to me and where I’m from. [The message led Michele to frantically call her best friend, fellow Broadway star Jonathan Groff.] I was like, “What’s something from our time in New York — a word, or a phrase, or something that is from theater, or from us?” And he said, “What about ‘Places?’” When you’re on Broadway, you get your 30-minute call, then your 15-minute call. You hear “Places everyone!” And that means it’s showtime.

“Without these photographs, their world would only exist in their stories and in their recorded music and concerts, and that is not like having these photographs. Photographs, like the ones handed down to us by grandparents and great-grandparents, are like eyes into their souls. That’s why we treasure our photographs. Seeing people in their quiet moments, which are really the only times when we really are who we really are. To me, that’s what these beautiful pictures of these four gorgeous men are. They are mine. They bring tears to my eyes. They inspire me to continue on. They make me want to dance across the stages of the world.

I love you Led Zeppelin.
I always will…

“My favorite picture with my uncle who’s like getting ready to drink a shot of something and I’m right in front of him, I couldn’t have been more that 4, with this huge big smile on my face. We were at my dad’s bar and I always look at that and I go: “I’m just going like “let’s drink!” - Stevie Nicks, In Your Dreams Premiere, Canada, 2013.
