ChristineMcVie

Christine McVie (born Anne Christine Perfect, 12 July 1943) is an English rock singer, keyboardist, and songwriter. Her primary fame came as a member of the British/American rock band Fleetwood Mac, though she has also released three solo albums. As a member of Fleetwood Mac, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

In 1990 the band (now without Lindsey Buckingham) recorded Behind the Mask, but the album only reached ‘Gold’ status in the U.S., and only Christine’s song “Save Me” made the U.S. Top 40. The album did, however, enter the UK album chart at #1 and reached Platinum status there. The second US single release from the album, Christine’s “Skies the Limit” did not make the top 100, but did chart the A/C at number 10. Christine had always been reluctant to go on concert tours, preferring to stay close to home with friends and family. Upon the death of her father, Cyril Perfect, while she was touring for Behind the Mask, Christine made the decision to retire from touring altogether. Despite the departure of Stevie Nicks, Christine remained loyal to Mick Fleetwood and her former husband, writing and recording a new track (“Love Shines”) for the 1992 boxed set 25 Years – The Chain, and five songs for the band’s 1995 album Time.

The members of the band seemed to have gone their separate ways until Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, and Lindsey Buckingham got together again for one of Buckingham’s solo projects. Christine McVie was soon asked to sing and play on some of the tracks. The four of them decided a full reunion was possible and Stevie Nicks was called back into the fold and the resulting live album, 1997’s The Dance, went to #1 in the US album charts. Despite her reservations, Christine complied with the band’s touring schedule, and then performed for the group’s 1998 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as well as the Grammy Awards show, and the BRIT Awards in the UK. Thereafter, she retired from Fleetwood Mac altogether.

In 2006 Paste magazine named McVie, together with bandmates, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, as the 83rd greatest living songwriter or songwriting team.  (Source: Wikipedia)
