Council Submissions July 7, 2010

From the mid-70’s to the early 80’s one of the most popular groups was Fleetwood Mac. Not only did they put out the best-selling record of the time, rumors, but their members were involved in many other projects. Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham backed up John Stewart in the Midnight Wind. It was after that the pair joined the group that Fleetwood Mac became huge.

When I was looking this up I learned something impressive about Stevie Nicks.

In late 2004, Nicks began visiting Army and Navy medical centers in Washington, D.C. While visiting wounded service men and women, Nicks became determined to find an object she could leave with each soldier that would raise their spirits, motivate, and give them something to look forward to each day. She eventually decided to purchase hundreds of iPod Nanos, load them with music, artists, and play-lists which she would hand select, and autograph them. She now regularly delivers these tokens of her appreciation, bringing her closest friends to share the experience.
