How did Christine McVie live?
Christine Anne McVie was an English musician who sang and played the keyboard for Fleetwood Mac. She was born Christine Anne Perfect on July 12, 1943, and died on November 30, 2022. In 1970, she joined the band.
She also put out three albums by herself. Most of her lyrics were about love and relationships. AllMusic says that she was a “unashamedly easy-on-the-ears singer/songwriter who was the main force behind some of Fleetwood Mac’s biggest hits.” On Fleetwood Mac’s 1988 Greatest Hits CD, she wrote or helped write eight of the songs, like “Don’t Stop,” “Everywhere,” and “Little Lies.”
McVie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 and given the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music for his work with Fleetwood Mac.
After almost 30 years of service, she decided to leave the band that year and lived for about 15 years as a semi-retired person. In 2004, she put out an album by herself. She played live with Fleetwood Mac for the first time at London’s O2 Arena in September 2013, and then she joined them again in 2014 before their On with the Show tour.
In 2006, Basca, which is now called The Ivors Academy, gave McVie a Gold Badge of Merit Award. She was given the Trailblazer Award at the UK Americana Awards in 2021. This was after the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers, and Authors gave her the Ivor Novello Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2014. Two Grammy Awards were also given to her.
Early Life: McVie was born in the Lake District village of Bouth, Lancashire, and grew up in the Bearwood neighbourhood of Smethwick, which is close to Birmingham (now in Cumbria).
Her father, Cyril Percy Absell Perfect, was a concert violinist and a music teacher at St. Peter’s College of Education in Saltley, Birmingham. He also taught violin at St. Philip’s Grammar School in Birmingham. McVie’s mother was a faith healer, medium, and psychic. Her name was Beatrice Edith Maud (Reece) Perfect. McVie’s grandfather played the organ at Westminster Abbey.
McVie learned to play the piano when she was four years old, but she didn’t really start studying music until she was eleven. Philip Fisher, a local musician and a school friend of John McVie’s older brother, got John back into music.
When her brother John brought home a Fats Domino songbook, McVie, who had been studying classical music until she was 15, decided to focus on rock and roll instead. The Everly Brothers were one of the first groups that influenced him.
The start of McVie’s career
McVie went to Birmingham’s Moseley School of Art for five years to study sculpture so he could teach art. Around that time, she met several new people in the British blues scene.
She got her start in the music business when she met Stan Webb and Andy Silvester, who were in the band Sounds Of Blue. They asked McVie to join because they knew she was good at music.
She often took the stage with Spencer Davis. Sounds of Blue had broken up by the time McVie finished art school. She couldn’t afford to get into the art world, so she moved to London and worked as a window dresser for a short time.
Two of McVie’s former bandmates, Andy Silvester and Stan Webb, said in 1967 that they were starting a blues band called Chicken Shack and needed a pianist. She wrote them a letter asking them to join. She was welcomed and given the chance to sing background vocals and play the piano and keyboards.
“It’s Okay With Me Baby” was the first single from Chicken Shack. McVie wrote and sang on it. She stayed with Chicken Shack for two albums, during which time her “bluesy” voice and piano playing in the style of Sonny Thompson showed that she really understood the blues.
The Chicken Shack song “I’d Rather Go Blind,” on which McVie sang lead, was a big hit. McVie won a Melody Maker award for a female vocalist in both 1969 and 1970. McVie left Chicken Shack in 1969, a year after getting married to John McVie, the bassist for Fleetwood Mac.
