Stevie Nicks - Stevie Nicks: Betty Ford Saved My Life


Stevie Nicks, the legendary singer of Fleetwood Mac, was one of the first people to pay tribute to BETTY FORD following her passing away, along with others who had benefitted from her addiction rehabilitation clinic, such as Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler and Frasier star Kelsey Grammer. Stevie Nicks has now opened up further to Cnn, claiming that the ex-wife of American President GERALD FORD was primarily responsible for saving her life. She said: "As far as I'm concerned, Betty Ford DID save my life. I went to Betty Ford at the end of 1985 for cocaine addiction. In those days, she would actually come to speak at Betty Ford two or three times a month, so I got to hear her tell the whole story on just the pressure of being in politics, being married to a famous politician and getting addicted to whatever it was she was addicted to."

Nicks went on to say: ".So God bless her, and I hope she's up there with Gerald Ford, looking down on all of us. Her facility is good, and it's working, and it was time for her to go. She was fragile."I'll miss her. I didn't know her, but I did get to spend a few minutes with her, and I did get to watch her speak two or three times, so I'm glad that I was able to do that." Nicks is touring North America throughout August and September.
