Stevie Nicks Targets Rock Hall Of Fame As ‘Elite Club For Women’

In a recent tweet, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks shared her thoughts on Sheryl Crow‘s upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Nicks expressed her pride and excitement for her friend and fellow musician, mentioning her intuitive premonition of the event.

Sheryl Crow is set to join an esteemed group of inductees in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 2023 class. The announcement on Wednesday confirmed that Crow would be honored alongside Kate Bush, Missy Elliott, George Michael, Willie Nelson, Rage Against the Machine, and the Spinners. The prestigious event will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on November 3.

The Fleetwood Mac singer, in her tweet, revealed that she had been listening to Sheryl Crow radio on Pandora for four days, experiencing a flood of memories. She playfully referred to herself as psychic as she congratulated Crow for her upcoming induction.

However, Nicks also emphasized that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is not that inclusive of women. The issue of female representation had also been addressed by Courtney Love, who had responded to a conducted research comparing the number of male inductees to female inductees. The study showed that only 61 out of 719 inductees were women.

So, the induction of Crow into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 2023 class is a step towards addressing this imbalance and celebrating the accomplishments of women in rock music. In her post, Nicks also recalled her excitement upon hearing the news, admitting to dancing in her room in celebration. The vocalist ended the message by sharing her love for Crow and looking forward to seeing her on the road.

Stevie Nicks’ tweet read:

“Dearest Sheryl. Yes, you can call me psychic. I have been listening to Sheryl Crow radio on Pandora for the last four days. So many of our memories came flooding back. And so, my friend – Congratulations, Miz Crow, for your upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I am so proud of you. It’s a very elite club for us women. I found out at 4 o’clock this morning and had to dance around my room for you. See you on the road! Love you, Stevie.”

The rocker herself is no stranger to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She holds the distinction of being the first woman inducted twice into the institution. Nicks was initially inducted in 1998 as a member of Fleetwood Mac, and later received recognition for her solo career with a second induction in 2019.
