Stevie Nicks Substitutes Jimmy Fallon for Tom Petty With Amazing "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" Recreation
Stevie Nicks took it back to the '80s last night. The Fleetwood Mac singer, 65, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, April 9, and dusted off one of her classic tracks for the occasion.
Nicks teamed up with Fallon, 39, to perform her single "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around." Released in 1981, the song was originally recorded as a duet between Nicks and Tom Petty. In recognition, Fallon did his best Petty impression, sporting a blond wig, close-fitting blazer, and '80s-inspired light-wash jeans.
After being introduced by Nirvana alums Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, the pair recreated the original music video Nicks and Petty filmed to accompany the song. Complete with fuzzy resolution, the clip features Nicks' signature swaying dance moves and the quintessential head-banging drummer and grooving band.
Nicks, who also performed her '80s single "Edge of Seventeen," is in New York City for Thursday's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, where she will honor famed singer Linda Ronstadt.
The Queen of Rock and Roll is reuniting with her Fleetwood Mac band members later this year, when the group kicks off an international tour in September. Watch Nicks go retro with Fallon above.
