Stevie Nicks Comments On Lily Rabe Friendship & Jill ClayburghIconic Fleetwood Mac frontwoman and rock legend Stevie Nicks is set to appear on this week's episode of FX's hit horror anthology series AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN and the star opens up about the actress who plays a character inextricably linked to her, Lily Rabe, as well as her notably accomplished actress mother, Jill Clayburgh, as part of a new interview.

Revealing their onset interaction and how she perceives Rabe's role of Misty Day, ostensibly a walking homage to the "Rhiannon" crooner, Nicks relates, "I did give Lily a really beautiful black skirt and velvet jacket that is just fantasmagorical. I just made that word up."

Nicks continues, "She has done me a huge favor by being that girl that takes on my spirit and sends that music out into the world to a whole other generation. There is no greater gift. I thought a beautiful black outfit was the least I could do for Lily Rabe."

Commenting on Rabe's own personal loss of her mother to cancer in 2010, Nicks shares, "She lost her mom [actress Jill Clayburgh] not very long ago, one year before I lost my mom. When I wrote her the note that went with her outfit I said, 'I know you lost your mom and so did I. I'm around if you need me.'"

Nicks concludes of her strong bond with Rabe, "We'll probably be friends forever."
