* MoralGuardians: Stevie ran into trouble from some fundamentalist Christians in the 1970's and 1980's who believed she was promoting witchcraft or was in fact a practicing witch (due in part to incautious on-stage statements in which she introduced the song "Rhiannon" as being "about a Welsh witch", which is inaccurate; Rhiannon was in fact a goddess in Welsh/Celtic mythology) -- then she went and called her production company "Welsh Witch Productions" -- and due partly to [[WomanInBlack her love of the color black in her clothing]]. The hassle got so bad on the later count, in fact, that she switched around the time of ''Tusk'' to [[WomanInWhite dressing all in shades of white and cream]] for a couple of years (she's dressed in white satin and chiffon on the cover of ''Bella Donna''). For the record, she has always staunchly denied practicing witchcraft. Her cameo appearances on ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryCoven'' can be seen as a TakeThat to the people who hassled her on that account back in the day.

Added DiffLines:

** Music/SherylCrow and Music/SarahMcLachlan are also devotees who have worked with her. They seem to embody the kind of "elegant old rock & roll" that Stevie cherishes.


Added DiffLines:

** She's spoken about these costumes and her stage presence as relating to "a combination of Natalia Makarova and Greta Garbo and the elegant old rock & roll that I love".

* FollowTheLeader: Without a doubt she has had major influence on the many female rock musicians that have emerged in the past 25 years. One of the most notable is CourtneyLove, who expresses her idolization for Nicks in just about every conversation.

** "Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You" is a rather cryptic ShoutOut to old friend and sometime romantic interest [[Music/{{Eagles}} Joe Walsh]].

->''Well maybe I'm just thinking that the rooms are all on fire,\\
Everytime that you walk in the room.\\
Well there is magic all around you, if I do say so myself,\\
I have known this much longer than I've known you.''
-->"Rooms On Fire"

* EightiesHair: Most noticeable in the videos of "Talk To Me" and "I Can't Wait" (from ''Rock A Little'') and the album cover of ''The Other Side of the Mirror''. Her late '70s-early '80s perm was a prototype.

Added DiffLines:

* VocalEvolution: Her vocals ever since ''Music/{{Tusk}}'' have sounded more nasal, likely due to the damage to the inside of her nose her cocaine use caused.

Added DiffLines:

* BlindMusician : While not completely blind, Nicks requires assistance onstage. She had eye surgery in the 1990s.
