Stephanie Lynn Nicks is an American singer and songwriter, who is famously known as The Reigning Queen of Rock 'n' Roll.
Born in Phoenix, Arizona, on May 26, 1948, to Jess Nicks and Barbara Nicks, she dreamt of becoming a singer at a very young age.
Her grandfather, Aaron Nicks, a struggling country singer, taught her how to sing and play guitar.
Nicks met Lindsey Buckingham at Menlo-Atherton High School and later collaborated with him in a psychedelic band named, Fritz.
Though the band disbanded in 1972, they continued working together and released an album, Buckingham Nicks.
As the album couldn’t garner commercial success, Nicks supported herself with odd jobs like waitress and house cleaner.
In 1975, she joined the British-American rock band, Fleetwood Mac, with Lindsey and released a Grammy-winning album, Rumours.
While still working for the band, she launched her solo career. Till date, she has released eight studio albums.
On July 27, 1981, she released her debut studio album, Bella Donna. The album reached the #1 on the US Billboard charts the same year.
The success of her debut album was followed by other releases, including The Wild Heart (1983), Trouble in Shangri-La (2001) and In Your Dreams (2011).
Her most recent album, 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault, was released in October 2014.
For her incredible solo career, she has earned eight Grammy nominations to this date.
Nicks recently toured Australia and New Zealand in September, and October 2017, which was named ‘24 Karat Gold Tour.’
In 1983, Nicks married her late best friend’s husband, Kim Anderson, hoping to raise their children, Kim & Robin, together.
The relationship lasted less than a year. But, she is still in touch with her step-son.
With her work in the music industry for than four decades, she has accumulated a staggering net worth of $75 million.
