“I’ll never forget the day Marilyn and I were walking around New York City, just having a stroll on a nice day. She loved New York because no one bothered her there like they did in Hollywood, she could put on her plain-jane clothes and no one would notice her. She loved that. So as we we’re walking down Broadway, she turns to me and says ‘Do you want to see me become her?’ I didn’t know what she meant but I just said ‘Yes’- and then I saw it. I don’t know how to explain what she did because it was so very subtle, but she turned something on within herself that was almost like magic. And suddenly cars were slowing and people were turning their heads and stopping to stare. They were recognizing that this was Marilyn Monroe as if she pulled off a mask or something, even though a second ago nobody noticed her. I had never seen anything like it before.” - Amy Greene, wife of Marilyn’s personal photographer Milton Greene
One of my favorite stories about celebrity.
You know people….the whole thing about me being a witch, is like you know, well no, thats not really the reason why I wore black. I wore black because as we all know black makes you look skinny: TA-DA.
This next song was written - well, we have a little disagreement on when it was written. I think it was a poem that was written in probably 1970 before we moved to Los Angelos in San Francisco. Lindsey thinks it was written in 1974 right after our Buckingham Nicks album came out and was dumped, and we were like, completely like.. we didn’t know what to do. So we started another Buckingham Nicks album. So, together, we both think that this was the first song that we probably were making for the next Buckingham Nicks album. Anyway, this is the nicest… (to Lindsey) Are you there, Lindsey? I’m not seeing you. Lindsey? Aha! There you are. You devil, you’re hiding from me! (to audience) Anyway, so Lindsey and I both agree that this is the nicest, most beautiful song ever written. (to Lindsey) And I have to give you some credit, because you did put it together and produce it and make it into a song. (to audience) All I did was write the little poem and write the little Landslide thing - dun dun dun dun dun dun - that I do when I write every single song I write. He is the one who takes it and makes it into something really beautiful. So the song itself was a really pretty poem about how amazing our relationship was and how much fun we were having and how crazy - you know, we were in love and we were young and it was fantastic. So this song is that first song. Well, we lost this song and then we found it again in 2010 on - oh yes, you guessed it, my favorite thing - Youtube! There it was. The lost song. Ta-da! So we found it, I brought it to Lindsey and I said, “Listen to this!” And he listens to it, and we like both went, “We know this song and we know it so well that we don’t even have to practice it!” So we’re gonna sing this song. And I have to always be reminded by my friend Mick Fleetwood here that these were the voices and the phrasings that attracted him to us. Besides, Lindsey’s a fantastic guitar player, they needed that. On the other side of that, the voices and the phrasing is what he really loved when he heard us. So thank you Mick, so much, for pulling me away from being a waitress. (to Lindsey) He did. (Lindsey: “He did.”) (to audience) We’re going to sing this song for you now and it’s called “Without You.
