Stevie Nicks is one of the most successful female singers of all time - and that's why she lands in the winner's spot on our countdown of the top seven women in rock. Nicks is best known for her time with Fleetwood Mac, but she's also had a very long and successful solo career. With Fleetwood Mac, Stevie recorded the album Rumours - considered by many to be one of the finest rock albums - period.

Some of Stevie's best known songs include "Gold Dust Woman," "Gypsy" and "Landslide."

With Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Nick's has also recorded with a lot of cool people, including Bret Michaels, Tico Torres and Jon Bon Jovi. Plus, Stevie influenced a ton of younger female singers, including Sheryl Crow and Kelly Clarkson. Above all else, she's pretty much stayed true to her own image, creating a signature sound that is undeniable.


You have to see this amazing footage of "Gold Dust Woman" from 1981.

I personally would have put the Wilson sisters at #1, but still a cool countdown.
