This is right. I also remember reading that towards the end of the sessions, Christine "went off on her own" and finished writing "Smile I Live For." Thank god she did that! One of my wishes for this album was that it had a couple other acoustic piano-driven songs.

Another recording story: Steve Winwood visited the studio when the core McVie-Sharp co-writes had been recorded. He not only co-wrote "Ask Anybody" but was asked if he wanted to sing on one of the tunes. He jumped at the chance to sing "One in a Million" which, as the documentary shows, was originally sung in total by Christine.

I love how she was in touch with Lindsey, Mick and John! Playing songs over the phone. (Cost me a fortune) haha.

I watched the rest of this docu last night. What wonderful memories it brought back up.

And, "Have a drink on me."

Awesome. Thank you.
Todd Sharp should have got the Fleetwood Mac gig in '87. He'd have been so much of a better fit.

I have always said the same thing after watching Todd live. He was asked this very question on a meet and greet segment. He said, NO, he was never asked. But he teased that he would have wanted it so bad.
I get the Billy addition since he played with Mick and Chris but Todd was an intense friend of Chris and she only agreed to do a solo record if he would be part of it. I always wondered if someone thought Billy was not good enough and they also needed a studio lead guitarist. Rick is really good but Todd no doubt had an inside track like Billy. Always wanted to know the truth on that. Gosh, he would have added so much energy to the band.

He liked to sweat, solo, jam, and find a groove. perfect for MacVie and company.
