Stevie Nicks: 'Twilight' Changed My Life

As the final installment of The Twilight Saga nears its release, fans are elated to see the new film yet sad to see the franchise end. Fleetwood Mac vocalist and solo artist Stevie Nicks is one of those diehard fans.
While she has become one of rock 'n' roll's most iconic voices in her many years, Nicks said that she had decided that she wasn't going to put out any more new music until she found inspiration in a seemingly unlikely place--New Moon.
Feeling stirred to create new music once again, Nicks then recorded "Moonlight (A Vampire's Dream)," for which she filmed a Twilight-esque music video and credited the film as her source of inspiration.
The song then convinced Nicks to continue recording music, which led her to make the tall claim that the film changed her life.
"When I finished the song, I got up and said to my assistant, 'I'm ready to do a record now,' and I hadn't done a record in ten years, so this story changed my life," she said. "Bella and Edward, Robert and Kristen, they changed my life and made me decide to make another record 'cause I was never going to make another record."
The album that resulted in 2011 was In Your Dreams, which reached as high as No. 3 on U.S. rock charts. Owing the creation of her album to the film franchise, Nicks admitted to being upset that it was coming to an end.
"It's been a three-year journey for me...since 'New Moon' and I'm a little sick at heart," the 64-year-old singer-songwriter said. "It's very bittersweet for me. I've already written a page of a poem from the first 'Breaking Dawn' movie, so I'm already started."
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn--Part 2 is in theaters this Friday (Nov. 16).
