17 Reasons This ‘Rhiannon’ Clip Is the Coolest Thing in the Universe

17 Reasons This 'Rhiannon' Clip Is the Coolest Thing in the Universe

If you want to make the case for Stevie Nicks as the most powerful American rock singer of the Seventies, here’s your Exhibit A. Behold: This insane clip of Fleetwood Mac doing “Rhiannon” on The Midnight Special, 1976. It’s the absolute peak of Stevie-dom. Here are 17 reasons why this performance proves Stevie is simply the coolest thing in the universe.

1. Stevie’s opening words: “This is a song about an old Welsh witch.” Translation: This “Rhiannon” is a totally different beast from the smooth studio version you’ve heard a million times. This version is the epic.

2. Stevie’s hair. Oh, the hair. Beyond feathered. The feathers have feathers.

3. Keep in mind, the audience has no idea who Stevie Nicks is. She and Lindsey just joined Fleetwood Mac last year. These people have heard “Rhiannon” on the radio, but they don’t know Stevie’s name. They’ve never seen her rock. Rumours doesn’t exist yet. They’re probably thinking, “Foxy lady. I think she just said this song is about a sandwich?” They have no idea what they’re in for.

4. Sweet kimono, Lindsey. Did Stevie let you tie that sash yourself?

5. The way she wails the line, “You cry, but she’s gone.” So much hungrier and rawer than the studio version. Stevie is not in mellow mode tonight. She’s the new girl in a long-running band, but she’s here to blow all that history away. She keeps pushing the song harder, faster, as if she’s impatient to prove the new Mac is a real-savage-like rock monster, now that she’s finally arrived.

6. Stevie takes two power-twirls — one right before the second verse (1:15), one before the third (1:45). Tonight she needs only two twirls to say it all.

7. Oh, that Lindsey/Stevie eye contact. I have spent years of my life trying to decode that look at 2:36. What is that smile? An erotic glance between two tempestuous lovers, sharing a furtive smile of intimacy in the heat of musical passion? Or maybe John McVie just knocked over somebody’s beer?

8. That Stevie/Christine split-screen duet in the third verse. Their harmonies really make you notice how much “Rhiannon” sounds like Nirvana’s greatest song, “Heart Shaped Box,” except not even Kurt would try to get away with rhyming “darkness” and “darkest.”

9. The 360-degree Lindsey-cam action at the 3:10 point — perhaps the finest cinematography of the 1970s to involve an upside-down bearded guitar freak in a kimono. Lindsey steps on his magic pedal and transforms into a Welsh druid.

10. Everybody in the band gets a showcase close-up, even John McVie. As always, he looks like he showed up for a barbecue and was surprised to find a concert going on.

11. Mick Fleetwood has a cowbell, but doesn’t bang it, because when you’re as cool as Mick Fleetwood, all you need is for the cowbell to sit there and listen to you.

12.  Lindsey’s ‘fro devours him and spits him out while he plays the Mick Taylor solo from the Filmy Ones’ “Bitch” all the way through–twice! The Mac jam like they did in the 1960s with Peter Green, like they did in the early 1970s with Bob Welch and Danny Kirwan — except it’s better now, because Stevie wrote the song. They still jam like this onstage in 2015, during Stevie’s now-legendary “Crackhead Dance.”

13. Stevie’s shawl-work during the jam. She doesn’t overdo it — she just sways from side to side, lifting her lace chiffon in the air, a black widow weaving her spiderweb. Note: This garment probably now has its own corner of Stevie’s private temperature-controlled Shawl Vault.

Stevie Nicks

14. Seriously, that hair. An aviary of white-winged doves, growing out of Stevie’s head.

15. This performance happened on June 11th, 1976. One week later, Blake Shelton was born. Coincidence? Probably. But you can hear a hint of Miranda Lambert in Stevie’s growl.

16. At the 4:30 point, there’s a hush and you think the song is over. (The studio version fades out after barely four minutes.) But it’s just beginning. Stevie starts to murmur, “Dreams unwind, love’s a state of mind,” chanting it over and over, beckoning with her fingers. The music speeds up. She stares through the camera and right into your very soul. She’s belting now: “Take me like the wind, baby! Take me with the sky!” Lindsey backs her with a couple of power strums. Total shawl/hair fusion. It’s a little scary how intensely Stevie quakes, chanting Rhiannon’s name, and you notice how steely she looks under all that black lace. She practically jumps out of her boots for that nine-second final howl, and then — like Rhiannon—she’s gone.

17. The studio audience must be in shock. Seven minutes ago, they’d never heard of Stevie Nicks. But tonight they’ll be seeing Welsh witches in their dreams. And it’s 1976. Stevie is just getting started on her lifelong journey of stealing rock & roll hearts. Dreams unwind. Love’s a state of mind.

Labyrinth 2 Gets Doctor Strange Director Scott Derrickson

Labyrinth 2 Gets Doctor Strange Director Scott Derrickson

Labyrinth 2 has found its director, as Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson has been tapped by TriStar Pictures to direct the upcoming sequel. Maggie Levin, who wrote and directed Hulu’s Into the Dark: My Valentine, has also signed on to write the screenplay. Lisa Henson of The Jim Henson Company will produce, with Brian Henson executive producing alongside C. Robert Cargill. Blanca Lisa will also shepherd the project for The Jim Henson Company with Caellum Allen and Nicole Brown supervising for TriStar Pictures.

After finding success in the Marvel Cinematic Universe by directing Doctor Strange, Derrickson was set to also take the reins for the upcoming sequel. Due to creative differences, Derrickson has since departed the project, but it apparently wouldn’t take long for him to find his next major fantasy franchise to be a part of. Because the original Labyrinth is an incredibly popular movie with a large cult following that continues to grow to this day, this would have to be a decision that TriStar isn’t taking lightly, but it seems to be in good hands with Derrickson at the helm. As for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Sam Raimi has reportedly stepped in to direct the MCU sequel.

Released in 1986, the original Labyrinth was directed by the legendary Jim Henson, whose legacy was honored just this month on the 30th anniversary of his passing; Henson and Dennis Lee also conjured up the story with Terry Jones penning the script. George Lucas had also served as an executive producer. The classic tale follows Jennifer Connelly as Sarah, a 16-year-old girl on a quest to rescue her baby brother by reaching the center of an otherworldly maze. The late David Bowie also stars as Jareth the Goblin King, with most of the other characters portrayed by puppets created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.

Although Labyrinth would spawn a spin-off comic book series adaptation, the movie was never given a proper movie sequel or reboot – for better or for worse. Word of a follow-up movie began making the rounds a few years back when Nicole Perlman was hired to write the script for the potential sequel in 2016. The following year, Crawl helmer Fede Alvarez had signed on to direct the project with a new creative direction, co-writing the screenplay with Jay Basu. In 2018, Alvarez said that his script was complete, but the project would then stall in development hell in the time since. Time will tell if Scott Derrickson and Levin will be the ones to finally get Labyrinth 2 off the ground.

Of course, as beloved as the original movie is, there’s certainly going to be a large portion of fans feeling apprehensive about seeing a sequel happen. To state the obvious, it would definitely not be the same without Bowie’s involvement. It would also be challenging for any filmmakers to try and match the magic of the first Labyrinth, which might explain why the planned sequel has had a few false starts already. We’ll have to stay tuned for more updates for now. This news comes to us from Deadline.

The High Republic Books Get Delayed by Lucasfilm

The High Republic Books Get Delayed by Lucasfilm

The next big thing in a galaxy far, far away has been delayed. Star Wars: The High Republic, an ambitious publishing initiative that was announced by Lucasfilm earlier this year, has been pushed to 2021. The event is set to tell a brand new story within the franchise and will take place across various publishers and mediums, including novels, YA books and comics.

Originally, the first titles were expected to arrive in the fall. Instead, both Charles Soule’s Light of the Jedi and Justina Ireland’s middle-grade novel A Test of Courage will now be released on January 5, 2021. Claudia Gray’s young adult novel Into the Dark has moved to February 2, 2021. Michael Siglain, Creative Director for Lucasfilm Publishing, had this to say.

“‘Always in motion is the future.’ That quote from Yoda is just as relevant today as it was when The Empire Strikes Back was released forty years ago. And while it applies to the uncertainty of the future, it also applies to Star Wars: The High Republic. Star Wars: The High Republic is a massive, interconnected, cross-publisher initiative that will establish an all-new era of Star Wars storytelling.”

“Set 200 years before the events of the prequel trilogy, this mega-story will give readers and Star Wars fans of every age an entry point into The High Republic, a time of galactic renaissance, when the Jedi Knights were at their height. Given these unprecedented times, we have made the decision to move the launch of Star Wars: The High Republic to January 2021 to ensure that the launch is as grand and epic as it deserves to be.”

With the Star Wars movies taking a break until at least December 2022 following the release of The Rise of Skywalker last year, this was intended to be a huge event for Star Wars fans to help fill the void. Whereas many of the canon novels help fill in gaps and could be referred to as side stories, this interconnected storyline was being treated like a new trilogy.

A Star Wars: The High Republic trailer was released when the initiative was first announced in February showcasing how seriously Lucasfilm was taking things. Concept art, new characters, ambitious storylines, a writer’s room full of experienced Star Wars storytellers. This is going to be a massive undertaking. Speaking further, Michael Siglain had this to add.

“I know that waiting isn’t easy. And I know fans have been excited for this since it was first announced. I’m right there with you. I’ve also been waiting to tell this story for years. And while I still can’t say much about it, I can tell you that our story architects, Claudia Gray, Justina Ireland, Daniel Jose Older, Cavan Scott, and Charles Soule, are continuing to work away on this new era of stories. You’ll hear from them this summer, and when you do, be sure to ask them about ‘The Hero of Hetzal,’ ‘the twins,’ the ‘Blade of Bardotta,’ the Starros and San Tekka clans, and the Storms.”

“You’re not going to believe what they’ve got in store for the Jedi and the Republic. So from the bottom of my heart, I thank you. I thank you for reading, and I thank you for your understanding and patience. Star Wars: The High Republic has been a true labor of love for us, and we can’t wait for readers to experience the golden age of the Jedi. Until then, and as always, stay strong, stay safe, and may the Force be with you.”

While it has largely been assumed that August’s Star Wars Celebration will be delayed, this latest news adds further fuel to that fire. Pre-orders for the first wave of Star Wars: The High Republic titles are available now. We’ll be sure to keep you posted as further details are made available. This news comes to us via StarWars.com.
