Even the surviving members of Nirvana can’t outshine Stevie Nicks. The Fleetwood Mac singer served as the musical guest on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and she did not disappoint. With Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic looking on, Nicks teamed with Fallon to spoof her video with Tom Petty for “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”. Later on, she offered a more traditional music performance, offering a dazzling rendition of “Edge of Seventeen” accompanied by The Roots. Watch the replay below.
Tomorrow night, Nicks will appear at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, where she’ll participate in a tribute to Linda Rondsat. Then, in September, she’ll reunite with Mac for an extensive North American tour. They’re also reported to be recording a new album.
As for Fallon, Nicks’ appearances is just one of many all-star performances taking place this week. On Monday night, Nas teamed with Q-Tip and The Roots to perform Illmatic classics “One Love” and “The World Is Yours” (watch the replay here), and on Tuesday night, Cat Stevens dazzled with a trio of classic cuts (watch the replay here). Last night, Grohl and Novoselic also appeared to discuss Nirvana’s impending induction into the Hall of Fame. And on Friday, Kiss will perform.
