After a very successful stint with the band, she decided to go solo. Her debut album, “Bella Donna” charted at No.1 on the U.S. Billboard and went Multi-Platinum within months of its release. Her second album, “The Wild Heart” also went Multi-Platinum establishing Nicks as a solo artist. She had many friends in the music industry, and she invited them to play music for her albums. Her next album, “Rock a Little” was also a huge hit and went Platinum like its predecessors.
However, the stress of working so hard had a toll on her mental and physical well-being, and she developed a drug addiction problem. The talented singer struggled hard to overcome her substance abuse and was eventually successful in leaving this troubled part of her life behind. A highly prolific performer, she is credited to have produced more than forty Top 50 hits with a sales figure exceeding 140 million albums.
