Stevie Nicks Calls Harry Styles’ ‘Fine Line’ His ‘Rumours’
God has spoken.
We’ve all been coping our own unique way during quarantine and self-isolation. Stevie Nicks, for example, has become a music critic, and a good one, too, it seems.
43 years after releasing the definitive rock album of the 1970s, “Rumours,” singer-songwriter Nicks has passed on the mantle to none other than Harry Style’s “Fine Line,” released just last year.

The witch goddess of rock made the comparison in a COVID-19 PSA on her Twitter. “I know you are doing everything you can to help the situation we are all in,” Nicks wrote in the post. “I am getting all my paintings and drawings out – listening to music (mostly Harry Styles’ “Fine Line”) and being inspired by him to write some new songs and poetry.”
It gets better.
“Way to go H.,” she continues, “- it is your Rumours.” She then goes on to tell us to protect ourselves, etc.
She went out of her way to compare “Fine Line” to “Rumours.” She didn’t have to do that, but she did. And for that, we’re thankful.
