One of my favorite Stevie Nicks songs, Stand Back, turns 30 years old today. We're the same age!
Stevie wrote the song on her only wedding day on January 29, 1983. Inspired by Prince's Little Red Corvette, she came up with the Stand Back melody while singing along to LRC. Later, Prince came by the studio during the recording sessions and came up with the (uncredited) synthesizer parts heard in Stand Back.
Hubs and I have been discussing lately how music has taken a nose dive in recent years. Aside from a few good bands and singers putting out new music for the sheer joy of it and for their hard core fans, most of the music industry has abandoned what doesn't make money and the creativity isn't what it used to be. It's a shame.
