Christine McVie

With her naturally smoky low alto vocal style and a knack for writing simple, direct, and memorable songs about the joys and pitfalls of love, Christine McVie has had a long and productive musical career while seldom insisting on being center stage. Born Christine Anne Perfect on July 12, 1943, in the small village of Bouth, the daughter of a concert violinist and a faith healer, a combination that just begs for uniqueness, McVie began playing the piano at the age of four and then found herself seriously studying the instrument at the age of 11, continuing her classical training until she was 15. That’s when she discovered rock & roll. While studying sculpture at an arts college near Birmingham for the next five years, she immersed herself in the local music scene, joining the band Sounds of Blue as a bassist. By the time McVie graduated with a teaching degree, Sounds of Blue had broken up, and she moved to London. In 1968 she reunited with two of the band’s former members, Andy Silvester and Stan Webb, in the British blues band Chicken Shack, playing piano and contributing vocals. The band released two albums, 40 Blue Fingers, Freshly Packed and Ready to Serve in 1968 and O.K. Ken? in 1969, and garnered a Top 20 hit in the U.K. with McVie’s impressive version of Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind.” She left the band in 1969 after meeting Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie, marrying him a year later, just after the release of her first solo album, the self-titled Christine Perfect.

Following the marriage, and now known as Christine McVie, she joined Fleetwood Mac as a pianist and singer and remained a member for the next 25 years, becoming a superstar in 1975 as part of the Lindsey Buckingham/Stevie Nicks version of the band. She and John McVie divorced in 1978, although both continued as members of Fleetwood Mac through the albums Tusk (1979) and Mirage (1982). She recorded and released a second solo album, simply called Christine McVie, in 1984. She married keyboardist Eddy Quintela in 1986. They would separate four years later in 1990 (and divorce later in the decade), just as the band -- now minus Buckingham -- released Behind the Mask. Following the tour for that album, McVie announced to the band that she would not longer go on the road, although she continued to work in the studio with them, contributing five songs to 1995’s Time. A reunion of the Buckingham/Nicks incarnation of the band for 1997’s live The Dance followed, and McVie did the resulting tour with the group before officially retiring from Fleetwood Mac in 1998 after the group’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that year. She then lived quietly out of the music limelight until the release of her third solo album, In the Meantime, in 2004. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

Christie - what can I say...I've been listening to you since I was 12 (I'm almost 50 now) You are truly one of my all time favorites in fact - I credit your songs for my love of music today. With sincere appreciation !

Without her vocal/songs and playing the keys, Fleetwood Mac would not have been Fleetwood Mac. Her songs are straight forward and about love and all else. Her lyrics were simple to follow and her tinge of British accent set her apart. She had many memoriable songs that would have left Fleetwood Mac high and dry without them........ . O f course Stevie Nick's voice was totally different... . . . a l s o Stevie's voice, words and lyrics are very hard to follow in most songs without a word sheet to initially

I fell in love with the songs from her 1st album. Now to enjoy more great music from In The Meantime album.

Fleetwood Mac is not worth listening to without her... and this 1984 LP is more of a reason to love her.

Could I please have more than just one or two cuts from this album? This feels like AOR where only the same cut is played over and over.

she was much better than her ex-husband. he is a mediocre bassist who contributed the least of anyone in the group and had basically zero creativity. they could have easily replaced him with someone else and the band would be just as good or better.

"a woman who sang, wrote songs, AND played an instrument in a pop band, at a time when that combination was unknown"
Unless Jefferson Airplane wasn't a pop band or Grace Slick wasn't a woman, which God forbid, Chrissy wasn't the only one doing those things. I think Chrissy was pretty much perfect but there were certainly others.

I've been listening to Christine's music for 35 years. She's an under-apprec i a t e d rock 'n' roll pioneer ... a woman who sang, wrote songs, AND played an instrument in a pop band, at a time when that combination was unknown.

she is sold short and that is A loss to anyone that does it

I agree with Monica Massey. Christine McVie is underrated.. . a superior musical talent to Stevie Nicks. Many of my favorite Fleetwood Mac songs all turned out to be composed by McVie.

always loved her, check out "bare trees" by fleetwood mac...rfw

far more talent and discipline than that "songbird" Nicks ever had. All Christine lacked was self promotion.

Her songs are the best in the buisness i think that she writes with her heart and about things that have happened around her.
