“Stevie is one of my closest friends and I did all I could to talk her into getting some help and getting right. I was very worried about her. To the point that if the phone did ring and they said, ‘Stevie died,’ I wouldn’t have been surprised.” Tom Petty, 2015“When I thought I was dying in rehab, it was Tom who lifted me out of the pain and made me fight through it. He has at times been my Olympic coach, my best friend and my greatest inspiration. There will never be another Tom Petty.” - Stevie Nicks, 2006.
“Jordan empitomises everything a captain is. He leads by example, never gives up and works just as hard without the ball as with it. We are good mates on and off the pitch and I would love nothing better than passing over the armband to him when I call it a day here.” - Steven Gerrard
“It will be a huge honour [becoming captain] regardless of who’s been captain in the past or who might be in the future … There’s never going to be another Steven Gerrard. In my time here I’ve learnt a lot from him, not only as a player but as a person.” - Jordan Henderson
I can be. I do not normally try to be. In fact, there have been some reviews—which I’ve loved—that said I didn’t try to sell my show on sex, that I sang my show. On the other hand, I know I’m cute. I can dance. I don’t have a bad figure. I know exactly what I am. I’m certainly no great beauty. I know exactly how far I can go.
Stevie Nicks, when asked if she thinks she’s sexy, 1982
