Default Christine McNuggets

Found this little nugget from the ITM promos where Christine talked about how fame happened to her before playing the music video for "As Long As You Follow"

She really does, doesn't she? Loved her speaking voice then, love it even more now.

“Jokes On You” demonstrates the band’s classic rock roots from the get-go. Miller handles vocals on this radio-friendly cut and her influential Christine McVie form is seamless. Her mix of melodic harmony tone and lead vocal doubling makes this track rich and luxurious.

[Article about Christine's cousin Dave Reece]

http://www.andoveradvertiser.co.uk/n...charity_album/

A TADLEY guitarist, who has played with some of the musical greats, is today releasing a new album worldwide – and part of the profits will go to a local charity.

Dave Reece, above, of Crookham Close, is releasing rock album ‘As we stood before tomorrow’ through label Acorn Music.

Dave, who is a guitarist, songwriter and private guitar teacher, has had success with his previous album ‘Clown for the day’, from which tracks received international airplay and were used for a BBC documentary.

He has previously performed with Eric Clapton and Peter Green, founder of Fleetwood Mac – the band which Dave’s cousin Christine McVie used to sing with.

He said his latest album, which is available to download online, is influenced by songwriters including Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.

He added: “From the age of four, I knew that all I wanted to do was play the guitar, and at 17 I became a professional musician and songwriter.”

A total of 25 per cent of profits from sales of the album will be donated to Wessex Cancer Trust, a charity which provides local cancer care support services for patients and families living with cancer across Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, and beyond.The charity offers both practical and emotional support.

Some of you may have seen my design of Songbird aka the Christine pony cube I wanted to have made. Now she's here, and has been for the past couple of weeks, and it really looks like her.



Cutie mark (a Songbird, obviously)

From a Drew Rowsome blog review of the book, The Desperates

http://drewrowsome.blogspot.com/2014...itch-greg.html

The mother notes that Chatelaine is her favourite magazine, "It's for the more sophisticated woman," and we immediately know exactly who she is. Edmund's decorating and fashion choices speak volumes while Joel and Binny's sexual and musical - Christine McVie over "goat lady" Stevie Nicks - explicate exactly who they are. Of course the mother does also lapse into one-liner drag speak - "Do you like my wig? Do I look like Ann-Margaret or a dying clown?" - but by then she is family and we indulge her.

[Excerpt from a blog post about Gomez]

http://asidesbsidesandseasides.blogs...z-b-sides.html

There haven't been as many great songwriters in a band since Fleetwood Mac. (Christine McVie being the best in the bunch, you Nicks loving fools.) They also put on an excellent show. I saw them for almost every tour. ...except the one where they opened for The Fray. I just couldn't bear to see them open for one of the ****tiest bands ever. I... I just couldn't. It was just one of those injustices in the industry. The better, less popular band opening for a ****ty new band, playing stadiums after having a major radio hit. It just isn't right. ...and The Fray have an album full of the same Coldplay rip-off song re-written over and over again. May they drown in a fire.

From a Quietus interview with Status Quo, March 19, 2014

http://thequietus.com/articles/14704...driver-reissue

FR: We were listening to a lot of Chicken Shack at the time, which were Stan Webb on guitar and Christine McVie – though she was Christine Perfect at the time – of early Fleetwood Mac, Taste, coupled with all the Little Richard and some of that 50s stuff we drifted through. We would sit by the side of the stage and Chicken Shack would start, “2... 3... 4... dunk du dunk du dunk du dunk” and an hour and a half later they’re still doing it. And we’re thinking, “This is ****ing great! Why aren’t we doing this?”

This day in Rock History:

http://top5000-rocketman5000.blogspo...rch-24_23.html

1984: Lionel Richie began a six-week stay at #1 in the U.K. with his great song "Hello".
1984: Christine McVie's solo hit "Got a Hold On Me" was #1 for the third straight week on the Adult Contemporary chart.
1984: "Jump" by Van Halen held on to #1 for the fifth week.
1984: Thriller had already broken the Rock Era record set by Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, and this week Michael Jackson added to his total with a 34th week at #1.

[Excerpt from an article on Martha Velez] Tampa Bay Times, by Michelle Miller

http://www.tampabay.com/news/humanin...-debut/2172787

Martha Velez has lived a storied life.

"I've been so, so blessed," she said.

Velez reflected on a career that has unfolded with a series of serendipitous turns — a folk singing stint with the Gaslight Singers in the mid 1960s, a stint in the Broadway musical Hair, a recording a blues-rock gig with then-session musicians Eric Clapton and Christine McVie, and a handful of albums including Escape From Babylon produced by Bob Marley. She landed in Los Angeles after the release of her 1975 album, American Heartbeat, and ended up with a regular role on Falcon's Crest and a small part in the 1993 movie Father Hood starring Patrick Swayze and Halle Berry.

[This is from an article on congressional candidates in the Napa Valley Register. He seems to be conflating Christine and Stand Back]

http://napavalleyregister.com/news/l...a4bcf887a.html

“V is the Roman numeral for five — my last name starts with v,” Van Raam said. “If I beat James Hinton, right after the general election I would turn 45. As I was thinking this morning, Christine McVie is getting back with Fleetwood Mac. I spend a lot of time reading between the lines — maybe too much.”
