I worry about you guys too... and some of the other regulars around here. She meant sooooo much to a bunch of ledgies. The ultimate horrible news for us. But, wherever Christine McVie's soul went, it was needed. In that, there is grace and beauty in her passing. And, I'm personally less afraid to die now. (Weird as that is to say).

I get that. The possibility of her death always loomed in the distance. (I often used to think, “What will I do when she dies?”). And then the unfathomable occurred and I, like the rest of you, had to face it. It was and is devastating—but her very music, and the immediate warmth of her voice helps me deal with it.

Because of her music, I sense her soul (forgive the pun) Everywhere…

I catch myself thinking about a second BuckVie album like I often would before her death and then the fact that she is gone flashes to the front of my mind and itís truly sad that it will never happen.

It's weird when someone we don't know or haven't met has the kind of impact that someone like Christine does when they die. I think for me it's one of those "I will forever remember where I was when I heard" deaths. In my car about 30 seconds from my house after driving home from 3+ days of burying one of my best friends who passed at a very young age from ALS. In a way that I would never have imagined, both of those losses are linked in my head and always will be. So when I think of one it's not a stretch that the other comes up.

So many what if's with Chris's death but I'm glad we don't have to "what if she had come back at some point" and that we got 2014-2017(I'll begrudgingly consider -2019 too).

It'd be cool if there were enough unreleased material that Lindsey could put something together but I'd also be scared he'd 1) spend the rest of his life working on it and/or 2) use way too much gimmicky studio crap to make it sound good to his ears without a Christine there to be like "that's enough Lindsey, it sounds bloody good, get on with it!"

Thank you for sharing this. I agree: her death is definitely one of those “I remember when…” moments. That had to be difficult for you to process two deaths of very different natures at the same time. I’m hoping somehow the combination of the two provided unexpected insight or clarity.

I heard Think About Me on The Bridge Channel 17 early this morning - it went out to David in Nashville who's listening to Behind The Mask and Say You Will today

David in Nashville prefers BTM to SYW, by a long shot.

Although both are chock full of turds.

Which is why he got them for .75 in a used media store

Anyway, I was really surprised to hear Think About Me on The Bridge rather than Deep Tracks or Yacht Rock!

SYW was given to me by someone who bought it and HATED it. They said, "this doesn't sound like FM!" Indeed.

I've been emailing them for months, requesting TAM.
