As it was revealed, the artist, who became inducted this year with her solo work, has become the first woman to be inducted into the Hall of Fame twice.
Fans were quick to note that this wasn’t her first nomination, as she was also inducted back in 1998 with Fleetwood Mac—just a mere handful of years after they became eligible for the nomination.
With her newfound solo nomination, she became the first woman to be an inducted member of Rock Hall twice.
Following the news of her nomination, Nicks took to Twitter to share a statement, saying:
“I have a lot to say about this~ but I will save those words for later. For now I will just say, I have been in a band since 1968,” she wrote. “To be recognized for my solo work makes me take a deep breath and smile. It’s a glorious feeling.”
