Fleetwood Mac/stevie nicks


I was wondering if you could tell me what Stevie Nicks interpretation is to her song "crystal" that was done for the movie "practical magic"?

Hi Amy,

Sorry it took me a while to answer your question.

As far as Crystal goes, she never gave an interpretation of the song. She only gave an explanation to the line "You remain ageless". She said she wrote that line about her father (who passed away on August 10 2005). My feeling is that the rest of the song is about Lindsey Buckingham since it was written in 1973 and they were a couple at that time (from 1969 until 1976).
Crystal also appears on their album called Buckingham Nicks which was released in 1973 and on the so called 'white' Fleetwood Mac album called Fleetwood Mac released in 1975.

Hope this helps and thanks for the question.

I've been a Stevie Nicks fan for over 30 years. Area of expertize: the seventies and eighties.


I've loved Stevie Nicks since 1976 to present, I've met her 3 times and once had a long talk with her at a party. I've also met the other band members. I also talked to people who worked for the band: Judy Wong, Paul Fishkin and Rebecca Alvarez but also family members brother Chris and his wife Lori.

I've done a Fleetwood Mac fanzine from 1979 to 1990 called The Chain and one for Stevie from 1983 to 1993 called Welsh Witch.
