Third Age reports that the Delta Sigma Theta sorority is celebrating its 98th year and that one of my favorites, Roberta Flack, is among the alumni. Meanwhile Ben Wener (OC Register) reports that Stevie Nicks will be touring with Rod Stewart which kicks off March 20th. Meanwhile Stevie's latest album In Your Dreams is released May 3rd. And her website notes, "2011 Tour Tour dates for the Stevie Nicks and Rod Stewart Heart & Soul 2011 US Tour are available. See the Tour Dates Page."
This will be Stevie's first studio album since Trouble in Shangra-la.
I'm excited about it. I doubt I'm the only one. On the tour? My question is will Rod be singing favorites or his torch songs? I'll go either way for Stevie but if Rod's doing "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered," I'll be less enchanted than if he's doing "Every Picture Tells A Story."
But Stevie is always great in concert. True even on the Rock A Little tour which some have rewritten as a waste (I guess due to drug use). That's just not true. "Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You?" -- for example -- really came alive on that tour and I've always wished Stevie would re-record it.
