(I have no idea why Christine didn't go back to her maiden name, Perfect, after her divorce from John. Perfect is just such a fabulous last name!)
The oldest member of any of her Fleetwood Mac bandmates throughout the group's forty-plus years, she turned 66 today! As most of you know, Fleetwood Mac has been out on a greatest hits tour (sans Christine) since March. Chris hasn't been with them since their reunion tour, The Dance, which was in 1997.
I think she's perfectly happy living in England, occasionally doing her own music thing, and living a quiet life. Definitely a drastic change from her vodka tonic, cocaine filled days during the '70s and '80s.
She did write some great songs for Fleetwood Mac. Some of my favorites from her are "Why" (pre-Lindsey & Stevie joining), "Over My Head", "Songbird", "You Make Lovin' Fun"... oh heck, I like all of her contributions to FM with the exception of "Don't Stop" - I skip this one when it comes on on my iPod. The Bill Clinton inaugration pretty much ruined it for me. :(
Here's a pretty fabulous video that you should probably check out :)
Oh, and one last picture!!
About Classic rock girl!
I'm a college student who grew up two decades too late and missed out on some fantastic music. I relive those years through this blog, by talking about anything and everything rock music related from the '60s, '70s, and '80s-- with some of "today's" music thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!
