Stevie Nicks – Fleetwod Mac Connection to Silver Spring

The song Silver Springs was written by Stevie Nicks.   Legend has it that she got the idea Good Fleetwoodwhile riding in a limo on the Capitol Beltway after a concert and seeing the sign for the Silver Spring, Maryland Exit. 

Die-Hard Silver Springers and native residents will tell you they hate it when anyone makes Silver Spring plural.  That extra S drives a lot of us crazy (especially when a public offical makes this Mistake!) if you listen carefully to the song Stevie never uses the plural or the dreaded extra S in the song.  The only place you’ll find that extra S is in the title of the song.

More evidence of this legend that the song came from the beltway sign is the fact that the sign is a “blue green” color mentioned in the song?  A lot of other people believe this legend.

    I believe it! As Stevie Nicks is still alive and kicking – maybe some brave SS blogger will approach her for official comment 😉 Wouldn’t it be cool and she came back her to play a show or two as part of Silverdocs or something?

    “I wrote Silver Springs uh, about Lindsey (Buckingham). And I ~ we were in Maryland somewhere driving under a freeway sign that said Silver Spring, Maryland. And I loved the name. …Silver Springs sounded like a pretty fabulous place to me. And uh, ‘You could be my silver springs…’ that’s just a whole symbolic thing of what you could have been to me.”

    Stevie definately has acknowledged this connection… read Between My Lines by Sandra Halliburton…. you’ll find proof there as well as in recent fleetwood mac publications. I’ve been a “fan” since 1974– traveled far and wide to see Stevie and have had the opportunity to talk with her on several occasions, including recently in Phoenix at her Crystal Visions concert at the dodge theatre!! my maryland license plates read STEVINX!! BEST TO ALL & ROCK ON QUEEN OF ROCK!

    This is what Stevie Nicks says about the connection between her song “Silver Springs” and the town of Silver Spring, MD. You can read more of her comments about the song on http://www.inherownwords.com. “I wrote Silver Springs uh, about Lindsey. And I ~ we were in Maryland somewhere driving under a freeway sign that said Silver Spring, Maryland. And I loved the name. …Silver Springs sounded like a pretty fabulous place to me.

    This song was definately “inspired” by the sign Stevie saw out the window. The song is not written about the town itself… The name of the town only inspired her to write her song “Silver Springs”.
