Q: Tell me how you developed your look.

Stevie: In one of those first shows when Lindsey and I went on the road, I saw this woman walk by, and she was wearing a mauve chiffon layered midiskirt and high platform cream-colored suede boots, I thought: I want to be her. So when I joined Fleetwood Mac and I had some money, I went to a lady and I said, I want you to make me a raggy chiffon skirt that looks sort of like an urchin on the wharves of London.

Q: Nice. So, why did you want to be in rock & roll in the first place?

Stevie: I met Lindsey when I was a senior in high school and he was a junior, and we sang a song together at some after-school function. Two years later, in 1968, he called me and asked me if I wanted to be in a rock & roll band. I had been playing guitar and singing pretty much totally folk-oriented stuff. So I joined the band, and within a couple of weeks we were opening for really big shows: Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin. All of a sudden I was in rock & roll.
