Stevie Nicks Begs Fans to Wear Masks
Stevie Nicks put pen to paper in her continuing quarantine journal to make a plea: please wear a mask so she can sing again.
In her own poetic language, Nicks described Covid-19 as a “silent killer hiding in the shadows.”
“Everyone gathering at the beaches ~ in the bars~ block parties ~ etcetera ~ Let’s get drunk and make out and by the way ‘Can I have the other half of your drink?’~ We are heading for a crash; People are dying because people aren’t wearing their masks,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer wrote.
While comparing the coronavirus to a plot on “American Horror Story: Apocolypse”-where she appeared in a guest starring role-she cautioned that she may never sing again if she contracts Covid-19.
“I felt the gravity of it even then… You did not want to leave that safe house because only death awaited you above ground. When those characters ventured out for just a moment~ They wore their hazmat suits and black gas masks~ no questions asked. I found it terrifying. It was the end of the world,” she said.
COVID-19 “doesn’t care who you are…It’s just looking for a victim,” and that those who contracted the virus will grapple with the “after effects.”
“Are you aware, everyone, that if you survive this virus~ you will be fighting the after effects for the rest of your life,” The Fleetwood Mac icon penned, noting “micro-blood clots” and “neurological problems.”
“If I get it, I will probably never sing again. Put me on a ventilator and I will be hoarse for the rest of my life~ I don’t have much time… I am 72 years old….,” she wrote.
Nicks then focused on what the virus will do to the concert industry if people don’t cooperate with social distancing measures.
“This virus can kill you. It can kill me. Kill my chances of pulling on those boots and hitting the road~ Kill the chances that any of us in the music community will ever get back to the stage, because we would never put you in danger~ never take you and your life for granted,” Nicks posted.
“Never put your family members who are older and more fragile in danger. You should feel the same. You take deadly chances because you think you’re immortal. You’re not. If you get this virus, your life will be forever changed. Your beauty will be stolen from you. You will age as you fight for your life. You will age as you fight your way back…if you survive,” she continued.
