Christine on Radio 2 UK
 
Johnnie Walker at the end of his UK radio show on Sunday, said Christine Mcvie would be joining him on Sunday 7th February..for a chat.
Johnnie Walkerís show, even in this weird time, is a live show.

Iíve just looked at Radio 2 website and it does advertise that Christine would be joining Johnnie for a ďvery rare and exclusive interviewĒ..

So, Iím presuming itís just that, and not some old rehashed interview.
Johnnie Walker sound of the Seventies is on Radio 2 at 3pm..on Sunday.

Itís a pretty good show in any case....as the name implies, he plays all 70s music.

Thanks for the heads up- I'll look forward to this. I hope there's something new in the discussion and not just the same old...

Hopefully she’s been working on that blues album.

The picture of her is new, so it might just be a new interview. Oh my, I hope sheís got some good news...

She's going to tour In The Meantime! :laugh:

jbrownsjr 01-26-2021 11:53 AM

I just notices it's nearly 2 hrs!! :]

I could listen to her all day. Whereas $tevie, I shut it off after 2 minutes. :eek:

The whole show is 2hours but I imagine his chat with Christine will be 15 minutes....sorry
But the show itself is pretty good, he goes back a long way...
Worked for the BBC back in the 60s

He loves Christine. He plays her a lot. He's interviewed her quite a bit.

aleuzzi 01-26-2021 06:41 PM

I once read somewhere that Christine and Dennis Wilson had made an albumís worth of demos. Itís probably apocryphal but maybe sheíll talk about THAT. :laugh:

It would be amazing if Brian Wilson produced it.

And she sang with Carl and Brian! :blob1: ... to dream

sue 02-07-2021 11:49 AM

The interview was about 20/25 minutes but Johnnie did play 3 songs.
The only interesting ie new thing ...
She was asked if they would tour again....she wasnít sure, she said she was getting too old.
And JOhn would NOT be touring again as he was getting too frail.
She did add he was okay, just getting old.

UnwindedDreams 02-07-2021 11:56 AM

Thank you, sue. It's so kind of you to report back to us.
I'm so sad to hear about John. I hope he enjoys his life; he deserves it. Now I believe I know why he didn't participate in the 2020 Green celebration.

It's so hard to read this. I guess it's better that they die of old age than overdoses, but it's still difficult to see your heroes approaching nursing home age. :distress:

She said, he preferred going out on his boat, and heís okay, just too frail to tour
So he must be okay......and maybe he doesnít want to tour( he doesnít need the money or the limelight)

UnwindedDreams 02-07-2021 12:17 PM

sue, you didn't let us know that Never Going Back is Christine's ringtone:laugh: That is so funny. Christine with a FM ringtone:D

My mom’s a year older than Christine. She had her first stroke eleven years ago and has had several more since. Back in August, she fell and broke her hip. The squad gave her a shot of fentanyl which caused her to have a massive stroke. Long story short, After five months in a nursing home, her feeding tube was removed two weeks ago and she was able to move into an assisted living on Friday.

Back in 2014, we went to see Fleetwood Mac, and she had the biggest smile seeing someone her age still able to do it.

We’ve been very lucky to have had them this long.

Macfan4life 02-07-2021 01:20 PM

She did not rule out touring again but is iffy. No John is sad but she said definitely not Stevie so I would love to see the Mac without Stevie and sad without John. But you are talking 2022 at the earliest and I think she will be too old.
I think Stevie will do a farewell solo tour and Lindsey will definitely solo tour again. She sounded a little under the weather and getting really old.

HomerMcvie 02-07-2021 01:38 PM

My favorite aunt is Christine's age, and I often look at her, imagining her doing what Christine does. She still gets around just fine, but it's hard to imagine anyone being that age, and being on stage, and being "on your game"(Mick Jagger is a freak, and doesn't count).

aleuzzi 02-07-2021 03:34 PM

If Johnís not touring again, then I doubt Christine will tour. Her loyalty is to Fleetwood and McVie. (I used to think it was also to Buckingham but the last tour changed all that.)

Without John onstage, the one thread of continuity is gone. The rhythm section that Christine and John were so proudly a part of is done.

I would, however, love to hear one more Christine album. I know it might be greedy or unrealistic, but Iím confident she could still write, play, and sing in the studio...

Yes, Iím with you. I would love that blues album she once talked about.

Off topic, but I was listening to Eric Claptonís ďJourneymanĒ album a while ago and thought thatís what Fleetwood Mac should have done in the mid-90s instead of Time. It would have been an album of pop, rock, and blues that would be the core three, all Christine on vocals, with a bunch of guest guitarists, vocalists, and other musicians.

I wonder if Mick will have the balls to have Mike, Neil and another bass player and call it FMac.

I donít see him putting another Fleetwood Mac together, one even more radical than the 94-95 lineup, although heís technically been the only original member since Bob Welch joined. I think an offshoot of some type (Fleetwood...) is much more likely.

BigAl84 02-07-2021 10:40 PM

Itís sad that the 2014-2015 had to be such an drawn out tour. In a perfect world they would of split those couple of years with Christine between shows and a record. They certainly could have, but with the Nicks issue it wasnít meant to be.

Iíll never forget being at the Pittsburgh show and hearing that entire arena go crazy when Christine sang the first line of ďYou Make Loving FunĒ. That was truly a magical moment in time.

In the end we did get Buckingham McVie and for those two it has to be a really lovely thing to have accomplished, to now realize it could potentially be their last collaboration. If anything, I hope those two have made amends more than anything.

For me, it was the perfect swan song for FM. That Tom Petty Crowded House bullsh*t never happened. I mean that's how FM looks at history anyway.

BigAl84 02-07-2021 11:30 PM

Yeah all that buzz around the 2019 tour evaporated before it even ended. Iíve said it a million times, the fact that they scorched earth over another pointless greatest hits tour...so dumb..

I remember thinking to myself about a month before music cares. ďTheyíll f*ck this up. Some way, some how...somebody will say something etc. Boy, they didnít disappoint as usual.

yep.

i bet that Chris and Linds are talking now too, not just Linds and Mick. i wouldn't mind another BuckVie album. considering that everyone's in quarantine anyway, now is as good time as any to work on it!

I hope they're talking. BUT, Christine is probably getting too old to do any more tours. :distress:
I'd LOVE another album though. BuckVie was Mirage 2. I'm ready for Mirage 3!

I doubt it will happen but if it does, no need to walk on egg shells anymore. Please call it Fleetwood Mac and not Buck/Vie especially if Mick is playing drums. All of that walking on eggshells did no good and blew up Fleetwood Mac anyway.

I couldn't agree more. Catering to a narcissist didn't do any good. Having 4 of them work without her, blew her mind. Not because of the money or fame, but because... well... she's a narcissist.

I'm astounded by her self-centeredness. Had she simply contributed 3 songs (or 4 or 5) and sang on the others, this could have been an amazing send off.

Instead...it was merely a great record that got some nice press.

That was an absolute pinnacle moment in my Fleetwood Mac fandom. Finally getting to see the five of them together! The crowd went INSANE when she started singing and it was beautiful. On top of it, four songs from Tango in the Night!
