Of course I'd like her to write a book. But she had all those years of retirement during which she would have had the time for it. I don't think she has the time for the next year or so to write a book.

The one unique subject, the one real "hook" that such a book could have, stems from the beginning of Christine's career. When she joined Chicken Shack and a few years later Fleetwood Mac, she was the one of the very few women in music who sang, played, and wrote their own material in a mixed-gender band, on an equal footing with the guys in the band. As the band evolved around her, she continued to be an equal among equals in the band. I want to know how she accomplished this and what it was like to be in her situation. To me that is a much more interesting subject than the tell-all gossip that some fans seem to hunger for.
Wow, you hit the mark!. She certainly deserves to be considered as among other pioneers of that forefront.
