Chiristine had scoliosis. That is why she was in a lot pain all the time with her back. I wonder if she caught covid, becuase they say it was rapid illness.

So, the more I thought about Stevie's unique tribute to Christine, the more I think Christine knew Stevie so well, she would expect and understand a tribute like this and be glad for it. She knows how Stevie is and obviously likes her.

This is pure speculation. Often times severe back pain can be a symptom of undiagnosed pancreatic cancer. It's possible that she though she was having back pain due to her known scoliosis and later found out it was cancer.

I think a tribute to Christine would be wonderful, but I canít imagine what it would be. Stevie got raked over the coals for singing Say You Love Me on tour. Maybe All Over Again, the song she sang with Christine on the last FM tour? Brown Eyes is a beautiful, haunting song, but I donít know if Stevie could pull that one off.

I read that she wrote Think About It and Say You Will for ChristineÖ maybe one of those songs? Say You Will sang as a ballad would be a fitting tribute, lyrically. Maybe the HAIM song she quoted? Or maybe she would just dedicate a song to her. But performing a song would be beautiful.
Donít Stop. Iíd bet her encore becomes Free Falliní and Donít Stop.

I can much more easily imagine ďDonít StopĒ being an encore on the Billy Joel tour, now.

I could see that. That is often the case. Something happened really fast and then it was time. So fast that it was kept private from everyone until the end was near.
My uncle had pancreatic cancer and when he was diagnosed they gave him 4 months to live. He lived 3. But its all speculation and reading the tea leaves. If it was a health scare that was recoverable people like Stevie or others would have known. When you dont have much time, you tend to keep everything private so there is not so much grief and drama around you. Its very sad but we must celebrate her incredible life and the joy she brought to the world. Living to 79 is really good. Just think she was in her mid 70s touring with the band. Thats amazing. She was also singing with no autotune. She carried on. She overcame her anxiety and fear of flying to come back in her 70s is unheard of. People in their 20s can barely change let alone a very rich woman that has everything she needs. She loved playing and performing and we are truly blessed.

I lost an aunt to pancreatic cancer. They gave her six months, she lasted less than a week.

You and jmn3 have to be right, and it makes total sense. One of Christineís best known songs; Stevieís done it live with her solo band before; Billy Joel would be a natural for this song; and the lyrics really exemplify the spirit of Christine. And what better way to pay tribute to someone then with such a joyous song? I donít care for the song, itís like a handful of others that Iíve overexposed myself to, but I cant imagine hearing it now and not appreciating more than ever.

I could see Stevie doing Storms as a dedication to Chris.

Chris was the blue calm sea.
Now they are frail.

On the pancreatic flip side, they gave my mom 3-4 months, and she lived two years with it. And it was only ugly the last couple of weeks.

I have a feeling the Stevie shows with Billy Joel were booked because Fleetwood Mac decided not to play live anymore months ago. These Billy concerts could have been a Fleetwood Mac and Billy Joel tour or even FM playing stadiums alone with a smaller opening act like Chicago. Mick had said FM's future was huge festivals and stadium shows and after almost 4 years since an FM tour, 2023 would've been perfect.

It will be interesting to see what Stevie chooses as a song for Christine in her shows next year.

I did. After MANY beer spills by Bob. I literally flipped them upside down in the middle of a show once, because he wouldn't stop dumping his beer on them. A show after that had trash bags over them during the show. He didn't like that at all. But he figured out that I meant business. If he ruins two speakers and two horns during a show, I made NOTHING for the entire day. I'll do whatever I have to do. No respect for me turns around on a dime.
