70s Music Divas Stevie Nicks and More
70's Music Divas
Divas come and go. But the 70's had 3 music divas who have made a lasting impact upon the music world far beyond a normal influence. I don't know why that is. There were divas in the 50's like beautiful Rosemary Clooney, aunt of George, and divas in the 60's like Dianna Ross, Queen of Motown and Aretha Franklin, Queen of Soul, who had hit after hit. This site exists not to diminish those achievements or the achievments of other divas of the 70's either like Donna Summer, Queen of Disco. I have added a place for Donna Summers in memory of her wonderful talent.
But these three 70's divas brought great music to their fans, with a passion for delivering that music. They were the first to be seen on music videos. And they were drop dead gorgeous. All three were grammy winners. Olivia Newton John has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and so does Stevie Nicks through Fleetwood Mac. Stevie Nicks was named Queen of Rock by Rolling Stone Magazine.
All three have had very long careers based upon their diverse efforts. They did not limit themselves to one sound unlike some of the other divas of the twentieth century. I hope you enjoy a trip down memory lane. If you have not discovered these before, you will likely enjoy their impact on the music world.

The Great Donna Summer
Donna Summer, Queen of Disco, passed away on May 17, 2012 at the young age of 63. She was a 70's diva who's death was shocking and sorrowful. Her talent and energy for music will be greatly missed but the music lives on.

Linda Ronstadt with a Great and Haunting Song
Linda Ronstadt on Amazon
Linda Ronstadt had a great deal of passion in delivering her songs. She gained a little fame as girlfriend of Governor Jerry Brown of California. And this girl was beautiful with a sensational voice. I hope that you enjoy her songs. She impacted many who listened to pop music in the 70's.
Linda Ronstadt went on to sing 50's music with the same magic as seen with her contemporary 70's hits. She was on Broadway with Pirates of Penzance and proved to be a versatile performer with some wonderful songs in the 80's.

Stevie Nicks Queen of Rock and Roll
Stevie Nicks gained fame first through Fleetwood Mac and then on her own, sometimes competing in the ratings with her iconic classic rock band. Stevie was perhaps the most passionate female singer in music history.
Stevie wrote almost all her hits. Her talent was enormous. Classic rock was the vehicle for the best quality pop music of the time. For this she was named "Queen of Rock" by Rolling stone Magazine in 1981. And she is my all time favorite smart and amazingly beautiful entertainer.
Stevie didn't believe movies were sincere, so she limited her fame somewhat by not taking advantage of that medium. The trade off was one of the most dedicated singers ever who sold over 100 million albums with Fleetwood Mac and solo.

Olivia Newton John Live
Olivia Newton John
If you are a guy and you had a pulse, you managed to catch Olivia Newton John on the video "Lets Get Physical" right? Olivia Newton John had a light and airy way about her. She was brilliant in her use of all mediums and Grease was a musical that captured the 50's like no other. The musical was released in 1978, the same year that Stevie Nicks was winning grammy album of the year with Fleetwood Mac for 1977.
