Overall, her 70s were a fruitful decade for her, and I'm happy for her and us.
I loved Christine in her 70's! She came back to the world.

It was incredible having the real Christine McVie back for eight or nine more years. I wish there could have been more, but it was still breathtaking to have her back and a more fitting final chapter of the Christine we’d known and loved than if she’d faded away as a recluse in Kent.

It's mind boggling if you really sit back and let that wash over you. Christine McVie's beautiful, elegant, and even fierce legacy has a HUGE bright star over it. We as fans were blessed with In The MeanTime and her return. Then the BuckVie tour and album.

I think we all knew the end was nigh when John decided to sell that treasured surfboard he got from Stevie.

That was the moment we knew that we fans would never get the one thing we truly needed - John on TikTok, surfing on that board with a bottle of cranberry juice while Dreams plays.

I’m still digging “Slow Down” after all this time. Can’t get enough of it.

I also have my heart and muse around the orchestral version. I had to forget the original to like it. Took a couple months.

I've really tried, but I still don't like the orchestral version. The arrangement creates this discord with the vocal. It's like Songbird meets Snow White.

But, I'm happy she received recognition and accolades for it, because Chris is deserving.

By my admission, I was stoned when I took to it. I love it now.

It translates. We are jaded from the original. However, I haven't had snow white since 1984.
