Singer and songwriter Stephanie Lynn Nicks was born on May 26, 1948, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona.
Her adopted moniker, Stevie, reportedly came from her childhood pronunciation of "Stephanie" as "tee-dee." Stephanie's mother, Barbara, was a homemaker and father Jess Nicks, a corporate executive, first met at Arizona State University.
They became college sweethearts, and the couple married in 1947.
The tight-knit Nicks clan included Stevie's paternal grandfather, Aaron Nicks, a would-be country star.
As producer Keith Olsen guided Fleetwood Mac through the facility, he showcased the studio's sound capabilities by playing the Buckingham-Nicks track "Frozen Love." The band was taken with Buckingham's guitar sensibilities.
A few weeks later, Fleetwood Mac's then-guitarist Bob Welch quit the band.Around this time her brother, Christopher, was born.As Stevie's father rose through the corporate ranks, the Nicks family skipped around Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Utah and California.Her tenure with the group was short-lived; the Nicks family soon moved to Palo Alto, California, where Stevie attended Menlo Atherton High School.Here, Stevie met classmate Lindsey Buckingham, a guitarist and fellow songwriter.Subsequent touring efforts showed audiences Stevie's flowing outfits and whirling onstage dances.
