Nicks claimed she was inspired a lot by Stewart before her Fleetwood Mac fame, saying she used to ski to 'Do Ya Think I'm Sexy'.
Rock veterans Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks are teaming up to tour together. The two stars appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in America on Thursday, January 13 to announce the Heart & Soul tour and Nicks revealed the British hitmaker was one of the icons of rock when she started out in Fleetwood Mac - and she wanted to emulate his flamboyant style.
She explained, "Rod Stewart was a huge rock 'n' roll star before (Fleetwood Mac bandmate and ex-lover) Lindsey (Buckingham) and I even moved to Los Angeles... He was incredibly inspiring to both of us."
Nicks also revealed she learned to ski to Stewart's anthem "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy". She recalled, "I listened to Do Ya Think I'm Sexy every single day for five hours."
