RIP Christine McVie (Fleetwood Mac)


Recommended Posts

From BBC:

Christine McVie, who played with Fleetwood Mac and wrote some of their most famous songs, has died aged 79, her family has said.

The British singer-songwriter was behind hits including Little Lies, Everywhere, Don't Stop, Say You Love Me and Songbird.

She died peacefully at a hospital in the company of her family, a statement said.

McVie left Fleetwood Mac after 28 years in 1998 but returned in 2014.

The family's statement said "we would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally".

Born Christine Perfect, McVie married Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie, and joined the group at the start of the 1970s.

I'm likely in the minority, but I always preferred Christine's lovely voice over that of Stevie's. Incidentally, both have contralto singing voices, but the distinction between each is readily apparent and that difference gave Fleetwood Mac an interesting variety in their sound from song to song. To this day, though, I tend to prefer those on which Christine sang lead. Beyond my preferences, Christine was part of that generation coming up in the 70s and 80s when stuff was crazy, and her band is well-known for its often-tumultuous internal dynamics. Needless to say, like most rock stars of her time, she led a storied life and leaves behind a musical legacy that will long endure. Thanks for the songs, Christine. RIP
