The song "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around", performed by Nicks and Petty, was one of the biggest hits for either artist. (May 18, 1892 – August 1, 1974), a struggling country music singer, taught Nicks to sing duets with him by the time she was four years old.Nicks was born at Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, to Jess Nicks (July 2, 1925 – August 10, 2005), former president of Greyhound's Armour-Dial, and Barbara Nicks (November 12, 1927 – December 29, 2011), a homemaker. Nicks's mother was so protective that she kept her at home "more than most people" and during that time fostered in her daughter a love of fairy tales.Her father's frequent relocation as a food business executive had the family living in Phoenix, Albuquerque, El Paso, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco during Nicks's youth.With the Goya guitar that she received for her 16th birthday, Nicks wrote her first song, "I've Loved and I've Lost, and I'm Sad But Not Blue".Her influence in music and musical performance is acknowledged widely, and as such, is recognized as one of music's top 55 "Greatest Songwriters of All Time", and with Fleetwood Mac is Grammy Award winning, as well as gaining a further five Grammy Award nominations.Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac in 1975 along with her boyfriend, Lindsey Buckingham.Fritz became popular as a live act when it opened for both Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin from 1968 until 1971.Nicks credits each of those acts as having inspired her own stage intensity and performance.
Collectively, these have produced over 40 top-50 hits and sold over 140 million albums.For the next three years, Fritz comprised Nicks on lead vocals, Buckingham on bass and vocals, Brian Kane on lead guitar, Javier Pacheco on keyboards, and Bob Aguirre on drums.Pacheco was the main songwriter in the group, with a psychedelic bent, but Nicks's own compositions brought a country rock flair to the group.Fleetwood remembered Buckingham's guitar work when guitarist Bob Welch departed to pursue a solo career.On December 31, 1974, Fleetwood called Buckingham to ask him to replace Welch as guitarist, but Buckingham insisted that Nicks and he were "a package deal." A few days later, Nicks and Buckingham discussed the offer over dinner with Fleetwood and the Mc Vies, and the feeling was mutual that incorporating the Buckingham–Nicks pair would improve Fleetwood Mac, making the British band into an Anglo-American one.
