The date was June 12th, 2011. A Day that will live on in infamy for 31 year old Kris D from the United Kingdom. Kris purchased the above Stevie Nicks 1989 concert t-shirt from the VintagePimps eBay store on this date. After paying via PayPal, it traveled thousands of miles from my quiet town in New Jersey to the bustling lights of the UK, and from there it was worn to a Stevie Nicks concert and record signing, where according to Kris, she absolutely adored his new (vintage) digs! How cool is that?! Maybe that is the circle of life that they were referring to in the Lion King.
Over the past month, we have chatted with our new buddy Kris about his love for Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac, and his passion for their music is easy to see. He also just recently bought a 1979 Fleetwood concert tee and a killer New Kids On The Block shirt from us ( Kris has the Right Stuff, Baby!). We asked him some Questions about the band that he loves, a singer that literally brings him to tears, and here are his answers.
Kris with Stevie Nicks herself, rockin' the vintage tee he purchased from VP's!
When and where did you meet Stevie Nicks: I met Stevie Nicks when did an album signing to celebrate the release of her new album 'In Your Dreams' at HMV record store, Oxford Circus London on Monday 27th June.
How long have you been a fan of Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac: I'm 31 years old. I was brought up on Fleetwood Mac; I then discovered Stevie Nicks solo stuff in my early teens. It was stuff i'd heard, but not put the 2 together! I absolutely LOVE both!!!
Favorite song by Stevie/Fleetwood: WOW, thats a hard one! Errr, ok, i'm gonna have to have a couple by each, I can't pick 1! Fleetwood Mac i'll say, 'Hold Me', 'The Chain' 'Did You Ever Love Me', 'Go Your Own Way', Hypnotized', 'Oh Diane'... Lol! Now for Stevie - 'Stand Back', 'Rooms On Fire', 'Edge Of Seventeen', 'Talk To Me'.
How many vintage concert tees of Fleetwood do you own: I've got 5, soon to be 7 original Fleetwood Mac concert tee's and 2 Stevie Nicks.
How many Stevie/FW Mac shows have to you been to: Unfortunately only 1; Hard Rock Calling in London on the 26th June 2011. I'm considering taking a trip to OZ next year to see her new tour! I'm hoping she's tour the UK too! And hopefully, maybe one day, a reunion with the Mac!
What did Stevie Nicks say to you when you met her: Well, I had this whole speech set out - I couldn't speak, I froze! Then started crying. Stevie said, 'Oh Darling, whats wrong', all I could say was I love you! She held my hand and said "thank you i'm touched." Then we had a picture.
Did she comment on the shirt? She looked at the shirt before she looked at me, then smiled and gave me a warm knowing smile.
