(ITS) The latest episode of the syndicated radio show In The Studio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands celebrates the 35th anniversary of Stevie Nicks' solo debut 'Bella Donna'. The show sent over these details:

Summer 1981 Stevie Nicks launched a major new chapter in her long-storied career with her first solo album Bella Donna, spawning three Top 15 hits including the Tom Petty-penned duet "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around", the Don Henley duet "Leather and Lace" and the ageless "Edge of Seventeen". Bella Donna quickly shot to # 1 in America and Australia, # 2 in Canada, and # 11 in the UK, resulting in sales in excess of six million copies.

Long before she became a star as a solo performer; before she and her musical performer (then lover) Lindsey Buckingham helped to transform the British blues rock band Fleetwood Mac into one of the top-selling groups of all time; even before her professional recording debut in 1973 on the album Buckingham Nicks, Stephanie Lynn Nicks was living a real-life version of the Glass Menagerie. Stevie Nicks shares her thoughts with In The Studio host Redbeard.

"I remember exactly what it was like to be 20. I mean, I was a cleaning lady, I was a waitress. I had problems... Every time I do a solo record I get more...convinced that the more honest I am with everybody, with what happens in my life and what has happened and what has gone on and how I've managed to get to this point and still have my sanity... the better."
