Stevie Nicks was sauntering around a cavernous sound stage on the Sony lot in Culver City as her tiny dog, Sulamith, who was outfitted in a sweater, trailed behind her. It was Tuesday, only a few days before her Thursday concert at the Wiltern, which will celebrate the release of her first solo album in more than a decade, "In My Dreams," as well as her 63rd birthday. But it was dusty in the rehearsal space. And that upset her. "This is a massive old place, and for me, it's hard, because it's very, very dusty, and I'm allergic to dust," she said, opting to sit in a stiff office chair instead of on a couch for fear that it would incite her allergies.

Yes, I do believe it's been nearly 20 years since Stevie Nicks graced our presence with Fleetwood Mac ("Time Stands Still at Greek for Stevie Nicks and Fans," Aug. 27). I was at one show, and it did not appear to me that Nicks was in denial, as Steve Hochman says. We fans know Nicks as a dramatic individual. Her songs have meaning, all of them. She expresses them with great individualism and heart. No bad review from Hochman will ever change that. Nicks' old songs have special meaning to us--"Dreams," "Rhiannon," "Gold Dust Woman," "Landslide" and "I Need to Know"--as they do to her. Maybe next time Nicks is in town Hochman could try to see the tradition being performed.

"The East," an eco-thriller from director Zal Batmanglij, will be the closing night film of the South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival, organizers announced Wednesday. Batmanglij and star Brit Marling co-wrote the spy drama, which collected strong reviews at its Sundance Film Festival premiere last month. SXSW, which will screen a total 133 features, also announced 14 more films to complete its lineup, including "In Your Dreams -- Stevie Nicks," a documentary co-directed by the Fleetwood Mac singer and Dave Stewart, half of the British rock duo Eurythmics; "At Any Price," Ramin Bahrani's family drama starring Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron; and "Xmas Without China," Alicia Dwyer's documentary comedy about consumerism.

As long rumored, Fleetwood Mac will hit the road in 2013 with a 34-date American tour that will see the band visit all the major U.S. markets, along with a stop at the Hollywood Bowl on May 25. The dates, which the band announced Monday, will feature co-founders Mick Fleetwood and John McVie along with longtime vocalist Stevie Nicks and singer-guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. Fleetwood Mac is touring for the first time since 2009. (Christine McVie no longer tours with the band.) In addition, according to Nicks, Fleetwood Mac has been working on new songs and is hoping to release at least two of them in anticipation of the tour.

Some of the most exciting news to come out of a conversation with Stevie Nicks on Monday was when she discussed a recent studio session with fellow Fleetwood Mac member and longtime collaborator Lindsey Buckingham. The two will join Mick Fleetwood and John McVie to resurrect Fleetwood Mac for a 2013 tour, but they have a history that extends long before they joined Mac in 1975. The pair recorded one gorgeous, self-titled record in 1973 as Buckingham Nicks, and it was this work that prompted Fleetwood, McVie and then-keyboardist Christine McVie to ask them to join Fleetwood Mac. The rest is (a tangled, romantically complicated)
