Stevie Nicks has lived one of the most unique rock and roll lives in history, so you’d think making a biopic or writing a memoir would be a no-brainer. However, there are definitely a lot of things she would have to consider before taking on such a task.

Nicks opened up on these topics with Tim McGraw on a new episode of Apple Music Country’s “Beyond The Influence Radio.” She said of a potential biopic and/or book (as transcribed by Classic Rock magazine), “If I could get it into a book, it would be like ‘Twilight.’ It would be like four books. And then, if I thought that was great, then I might say, ‘Well, maybe we could do like a four-part thing’ I used to say, ‘Absolutely no,’ not writing a book, not making a movie and don’t ask me to make a musical. I hate them. Hate them. Hate them, except for ‘Wicked.’ ‘Wicked’ is my favorite.”

Besides a Stevie Nicks miniseries about her life sounding amazing, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame double-inductee did mention regarding touching on her substance abuse struggles, “I don’t have a problem sharing what’s happened to me in my life, because most of everything that’s happened to me, I think has been pretty marvellous…I would be careful with some things, because I don’t want people to make the same mistakes that I made, that lots of them weren’t my fault. So, I would tell them in a way where people got the message, but it wasn’t gothic and super sad, you know what I mean? That’s not something sacred I want to leave behind.”
