I've wondered the same. Her inability to play keys, and wasn't she having back pain when they last toured? I wonder if she'd been sick for some time? Although I can't imagine wanting to tour if I was terminally ill. I wouldn't.

If we're all upset about Christine's passing, I can't imagine how Stevie feels. Her note came off as someone who's distraught, but trying to keep it together, TBH.

OMG.
Thank you. Needed this tonight.

I'm curious what everyone will think of Stevie's message. It's not totally self absorbed but sometimes her writing style is so odd (all the ellipses, dashes and commas used incorrectly.) Just my 2 cents!
Well, it’s not as Stevie-centric as I thought it would be, so I guess there’s that. Slightly confused about her posting the HAIM song instead of, say, one of her own songs or poems, but perhaps it really spoke to her. 🤷🏻*♀️ I always got the feeling that she genuinely loved Christine so I imagine she’s grieving pretty hard right now. For that I’ll cut her some slack.

She probably is feeling it hard. Christine said she hasn't been speaking to Stevie since the last tour ended.

Chris was so low-drama; I'm glad she went on her terms, without a circus.
wow, thank you for taking the sting out of today for the first time with that.

OMG. I don’t want to criticize how a person mourns….but thank you for the LOL moment.

On a serious note…. I believe Christine’s passing is yet another reminder of Stevie’s own mortality.

I’m sure all the members of the Mac are thinking “who’s next?”

Linds left a very cryptic post in his instagram the day before Chris passed…which made people wonder if he was ok…. it makes more sense now….although I can’t figure out what the “September” part means

“And the days dwindle down
To a precious few . . .
September, November . . .
And these few precious days”

The words are from The September song, looking back in a lyrical sense on the latter part of your life…..from September to December

Very apt at the moment..

OMG people. Stevie's response was very touching. I love how personal it is. Its not typed words on the twitter machine but her own written words. Its not fair to criticize her for grief because of her past actions. She wanted to say those words she would have told her. When my mother died the funeral home director had a great idea. He told us that if we wanted a private message write a letter and before the casket is closed, slip the letter under the mattress. I found it very therapeutic that my letter to my mom would be with her forever. Stevie also had blunt honesty in her response how she did not know anything was wrong before it was too late. Chris and Stevie had such a unique relationship. Yes it was strained and non existent in the mid 80s but their dynamic would not work in another band. Stevie has said this herself. Chris was playing hard with the boys for years. Bringing a very attractive, delicate female singer to the front of the stage who does not play an instrument would have caused friction with anyone else except Chris. Chris was too strong a person to feel insecure about that.. I think Chris said it best that they were polar opposites in every why which is why they clicked.

Stevie has been doing tributes to Prince and Tom for years in her solo acts and with the Mac. This upcoming stadium tour, will she do a tribute to Chris?

Thank you, appreciate that detail. I did not know they were lyrics. Definitely makes sense.

Stevie is Stevie. Some of her quotes are questionable like my best friend when Chris said they hadn't talked since the tour. And at the end, "don't forget me". She can't help herself. But we know she is just gutted by this. I loved that she hand wrote her tribute and the Haim song reference didn't bother me. I just feel so sad for all of us that loved her and I'm so happy I got to see her live and sing with her beautiful voice and magical songs

I looked up the definition of scoliosis and learned it mostly occurs in teenagers. Then it said this: While scoliosis can occur in people with conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most childhood scoliosis is unknown.

So perhaps Christine had an underlying medical condition we don't know about.

Wow, wouldn't this be a great idea. I hope she takes your advice and does this and that she uses multiple pics of the two of them we have never seen before.

Written in 1938. Frank Sinatra recorded it, and I think Porter Waggoner did, too. Lindsey did on Law and Order.

Thank you for sharing that about your mother

I think a tribute to Christine would be wonderful, but I can’t 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 don’t know if Stevie could pull that one off.

I read that she wrote Think About It and Say You Will for Christine… 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.
