Stevie Nicks Duets With Eddie Vedder On ’80s Classic
On Friday (September 30th), Eddie Vedder joined Steve Nicks for a duet of her Tom Petty-written solo classic, “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.” Nicks welcomed the Pearl Jam frontman during her headlining set at Vedder’s Ohana Festival in Dana Point, California.
Rolling Stone reported that in addition to Vedder handling the Petty-sung vocal line, the two rock legends danced together during the tune’s iconic guitar solo.
Although Stevie Nicks has recorded duets with such distinctive vocalists as Lindsey Buckingham, Kenny Loggins, Don Henley, Sheryl Crow, and Tom Petty, she told us that she’s waited over 50 years to share a stage with three specific singers: “Well, when I moved to Los Angeles with Lindsey (Buckingham) in 1972, I wanted — there were three songs I wanted to sing two-part harmony with; Paul McCartney ‘Yesterday,’ James Taylor ‘Fire And Rain,’ and Elton John ‘Your Song.’ I’ve never gotten to sing any of those three songs with those three men! So, I’m still looking that maybe that will happen someday. Because that was before this happened, y’know? That was like way before we were famous.”
