It's no secret that rock and roll often equals a lot of drugs and alcohol, but Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks claims she was the worst of the worst when it came to that stuff in the '70s and '80s.
"All of us were drug addicts," the 66-year-old admits of the band. "But there was a point where I was the worst drug addict."
In the new issue of 'Rolling Stone,' Stevie opens up about her serious cocaine addiction that eventually tore a hole through her nose after she snorted too much.

"I was a girl, I was fragile, and I was doing a lot of coke. And I had that hole in my nose. So it was dangerous," she tells the mag. It was so bad, in fact, that her good friend Tom Petty got to a point where "if the phone did ring and they said, 'Stevie died,' I wouldn't have been surprised," he confesses.
Though she entered the Betty Ford Center for a 30-day stint in 1986, the singer became dependent on the tranquilizer Klonopin after a psychiatrist prescribed it for her. It took a 47-day detox in 1994 to get it out of her system.
Nowadays, Stevie admits she only smokes marijuana occasionally. "It's my one little thing that I can do. I use it as a tool, and I'm very careful, you know?" she tells 'Rolling Stone.' "However, if I thought it was going to lead me back to something worse, I'd stop."
'The Chain' singer also chats about dating over 60, revealing she doesn't date older men because "they wanna go out with somebody that's 25."

And though she hooked up with a much-younger guy in the '90s, Stevie confesses people are turned off by her homebody lifestyle.
"So, in short, I've narrowed it down to nobody," she teases of her current dating status.
