Stevie Nicks thinks it is "very hard" to find success now.

The 'Landslide' hitmaker - who shot to fame as part of rock group Fleetwood Mac - admits it is difficult to make it in the music industry at the moment but says it can work as long as the person is willing to work hard.

She said: "I think it's very hard now. That does not mean that it can't happen. Look, it happened for Adele. Adele is certainly someone who writes great songs and has an amazing voice. Why did it happen for Adele? It's because the stars crossed exactly at the right time, who knows. Whatever it was she worked very hard at it. I think that's the thing."

The 68-year-old singer recalls how she decided to make a big step and move to Los Angeles with her boyfriend Lindsey Buckingham.

She added to The Huffington Post newspaper: "You have to figure out a way, if you're eighteen or moving out of your parents house because you have to figure out a way to play and also support yourself. If everybody is like how my parents were, oh boy, I went to college for five years. I stopped after five years and had three months left to graduate. I called my parents and I said 'My boyfriend Lindsey and I are going to LA.'

"They said, 'Well, that's fine we totally believe in you and support your theory in what you're doing.' I said, 'Mom, we have to go now. It's now or never.' She said, 'Cool, however, we will be withdrawing all financial support.' And I said 'I know that and it's okay. We are going and I will be okay.' And it was okay."
