Stevie Nicks is a fan of "Game of Thrones" -- in more ways than one. The Fleetwood Mac singer revealed that she's in awe of its author, George R.R. Martin, and that the HBO show of the fantasy series helped her through one of the toughest moments of her life -- the months following the death of her mom. The "Landslide" singer's tough time came shortly after the band released its iTunes EP earlier this year.
"I didn't go [to the studio]. I didn't want to go. But it wasn't just that -- I didn't want to go anywhere. I didn't leave the house for almost five months," Nicks admitted to Herald Scotland of the affect her mother's death had on her. "I worked on the edit of my documentary about the making of 'In Your Dreams.' And then I got pneumonia. With my pneumonia and my mother's death I watched the entire first season of 'Game Of Thrones' -- so that was great! That certainly took my mind off everything."
Indeed, Nicks, 65, also took her mind off of her depression by writing poetry about the characters Martin created. "I would love to write some music for 'Game Of Thrones.' 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: "It blows my mind that he's able to create this vast, interlinked world," she says. "As a songwriter I write little movies. But I can't imagine sitting down and writing even one small book."
