Anonymous asked: My question is: how bad was Stevie's eyesight? She's talked about it being pretty bad, and in some pictures you can see how thick her lenses on her glasses were. How did she see onstage with such poor eyesight and not wearing glasses?
Stevie’s eyesight was bad. I think she needed a telescope to pass the drivers license eye exam. In those days she wore contact lenses mostly from what I can remember. In fact we had to cancel a show one night in the mid 70s because she fell asleep the night before with her contact lenses in. Big fun that was. When she wasn’t wearing any eye help on stage, I don’t think she could see the individual people, rather a large sea of humanity. Security was always watching she didn’t go over the front of the stage in blind enthusiasm, and I, at the sound board, just held my breath. (And sometimes closed my eyes)
Stupid or smart, call it what you’d like, its the end result that counts.
Unseen Photos Of Fleetwood Mac & More!
As I write this, Stacy Be is scanning undiscovered negatives & slides I took of the band through the years. There are some real, undiscovered classic gems there & I am really excited to share them with you. I was so lazy about having hundreds of negatives printed, that I haven’t seen these myself for some 25 years. Wow!
These eyes have seen some historical photos.
