Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks has revealed that she would "love to write music for Game Of Thrones".

The 65-year-old singer started watching the hit HBO fantasy show after contracting pneumonia following the death of her mother, Barbara Nicks, and credits author George RR Martin for helping her through the grieving process on her road to recovery.

She told The Herald : "I didn't go [to the studio]. I didn't want to go. But it wasn't just that - I didn't want to go anywhere. I didn't leave the house for almost five months. I worked on the edit of my documentary about the making of 'In Your Dreams.' And then I got pneumonia. With my pneumonia and my mother's death I watched the entire first season of Game of Thrones - so that was great! That certainly took my mind off everything."

She added: "I would love to write some music for Game of Thrones. I've written a bunch of poetry about it -- one for each of the characters. On Jon Snow...On Arya...On Cersei and Jaime. It blows my mind that he's able to create this vast, interlinked world. As a songwriter I write little movies. But I can't imagine sitting down and writing even one small book."

Nicks previously revealed that she wrote a personal letter to the cast of hit US musical show Glee following the tragic death of actor Cory Monteith this July. The singer had previously been in contact with the cast of the show in 2011, when the programme covered several songs from Fleetwood Mac's seminal 1977 record 'Rumours'.
