LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Stevie Nicks is a “Game of Thrones” groupie!
The Fleetwood Mac singer said watching the HBO show helped her through a dark time in her life (following a bout of pneumonia and the death of her mother) – and revealed she’d like to write music for the George R. R. Martin-created series.
“With my pneumonia and my mother’s death I watched the entire first season of ‘Game Of Thrones’- so that was great!” the legendary singer reportedly told the Herald Scotland, following a nearly-sold-out show in Glasgow. “That certainly took my mind off everything.”
Stevie also voiced her respect for George’s creativity and penmanship.
“The author is my age and it blows my mind that he’s able to create this vast, interlinked world,” she said. “As a songwriter I write little movies. But I can’t imagine sitting down and writing even one small book.
“But then, probably somebody like him couldn’t imagine writing ‘Edge Of Seventeen’ or ‘Rhiannon’ - couldn’t write a whole little life in two verses and a chorus,” she added.
And here’s where it gets pretty amazing: Stevie revealed she wants to be involved with the show and (prepare yourselves) has already written poetry based on major “GoT” characters.
“I would love to write some music for ‘Game Of Thrones,’” she said.
“I’ve written a bunch of poetry about it - one for each of the characters. On Jon Snow… On Arya… On Cersei and Jaime,” she added, referencing characters played by Kit Harington, Maisie Williams, Lena Headey and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, respectively.
