number 1 single

The way George Michael took his homophobic attacks from the tabloids and turned it into a number 1 single will always be inspiring to me. I remember being a teen watching a music documentary and seeing someone just rock being outed gave me such a feeling that even if someone found out, it could be ok. 


And then it happens. Stevie sings the opening line to Dreams… and forgets the words. It is the only Number 1 single in her life - maybe her most important song ever - and she flubs it. She stops - this is TV, remember - and starts over. And then she flubs it again.

“You know what?” Stevie Nicks asks me later. “I wasn’t pissed off at myself, I was scared - the words went out of my head. The first time it was like, OK, this is all right. The second time I started to get a sick feeling. And then the third time I thought, Somebody, Lindsey, come over here and tell me these words, because we’re not gonna get through this thing.”
