Default New biography out in November

Songbird, the biography of Christine McVie, will be released in bookstores and online in November.

Nice to have a confirmed release date.

I'll bet 80% of us will already know 95% of the facts presented.

More specific info- Songbird: An Intimate Biography of Christine McVie by Lesley Ann Jones will be released on November 19, 2024. Told by an author who herself was friends with Christine, and with new contributions from those who knew her best, Songbird offers a true insiderís view, etc etc.

I agree, fans wonít be too surprised by anything here, but hopefully there will be some fun anecdotes about Christine we havenít heard before, not to mention praises by her peers and newer stars who grew up listening to her music.

I know it will never happen, but a newly rereleased dvd/blu-ray of her 1984 concert and MTV Special would be a wonderful tie in with the release of this book. Of course, that should have been included on the rerelease of her two solo albums last year, but itís wishful thinking, I know.

One thing I really would like to learn more about is how the sessions went when FM recorded Love Shines and Heart of Stone. Did Christine enjoy working with producer Patrick Leonard? Did he produce any other songs that might be in a vault somewhere? Did she enjoy working as a foursome in FM, even for that brief period? I suspect there will be very little, if anything, written about that brief time, though.

Biographies of people that are no longer with us are difficult. If she truly was a friend she's not going to spill dark secrets. It will be mostly what everyone knows and much of a fluff book.
I loved Chris so I would not want anything done without her permission or to embarrass anyone. Could you imagine if her wine glasses could talk.
What if she truly hated Stevie. What if she had an affair with Lindsey. What if she used the album Rock A Little as a coaster for her wine glasses. Now that's some juicy stuff.

Ah, this is the one that was originally going to be titled Perfect. Iím more optimistic about it with this change - donít think Christine would have liked the previous title very much.

I don't think she truly hated her. Probably she was angry with her sometimes, as we all have been with a friend in some moment.

I'm not planning to buy the book but if I learn there is stuff like that, I guess it would be a book of gossip and inventions mixed with some true episodes.
