Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks is known for her penchant to write memorable lyrics as well as her rhythmic voice. However, even this gifted performer can marvel at other talented artists and their work. Nicks has recently admitted to being a Game of Thrones fan, and has even gone as far as to express her desire to create music for the show. Nicks recently spoke with Radio Times magazine.
“I would love to write some music for the show. I’ve written a bunch of poetry about it — one for each of the characters. On Jon Snow… on Arya… on Cersei… on Cersei and Jaime, the blonde on blonde… on Khaleesi… I’m always looking for that kind of inspiration, and I’m very inspired by it — as I was very inspired by Twilight,” she said.
The legendary rock performer spoke about her admiration for author George RR Martin, who is the mastermind behind the successful television show. “The guy who wrote these stories is my age now, and I think: how in the world does somebody come up with these 15 or so characters and then everything that’s wrapped around each one of the 15 characters? It blows my mind that he’s able to create this vast, interlinked world. As a songwriter I write little movies. But I can’t imagine sitting down and writing even one small book, a novel. We each have our thing that we’re really good at.”
Though many are excited with the prospect of the singer’s professed interest and potential involvement with the Thrones phenomenon, this is not the first time fans have been treated to news of Nicks interest in a particular television show. The popular musician has already made an appearance on American Horror Story: Coven, much to the delight of her fans.
