    Did not think she was 79. On of Britain’s great songwriters she will be greatly missed. RIP Christine. Just off to play Songbird, a song I seen her sing live a few times.

    Very, very sad to hear this.

    As a teenager my wall was adorned with her pictures.

    Christine singing 'I'd Rather Go Blind' with Chicken Shack back in 1969 remains one of the best versions of that song for me.

    Agreed, "I'd Rather Go Blind" is, for me, one of the best female performances, up there with Grace Slick's "White Rabbit"

    Her songs helped define that band/era yet she stayed away from showbiz nonsense.

    Loved her...a great loss.

    Just been listening to Why, my favourite of her songs. Iím so pleased I got to see the Mac live with her in the band. She added so much to the show. Hearing Songbird to close out the set is the perfect way to finish a concert.

    Such a talent, such a sad loss to the music world. I have the instrumental part of The Chain as the ring tone on my phone.
    Best Regards - Peter

    I hate being bipolar, its brilliant.

    Fleetwood Mac's Songbird - Christine McVie

    Christine McVie is undoubtedly the longest-serving female band member of any of the enduring rock ‘n’ roll acts that emerged from the 1960s. While she has never fronted Fleetwood Mac, preferring to align herself with ‘the boys’ in the rhythm section whom she first joined 50 years ago, Christine is their most successful singer-songwriter. Her hits include ‘Over My Head’, ‘Don’t Stop’ and ‘Everywhere’.
    After massive global success in both the late 1970s and mid-1980s, Christine left the band in the late 1990s, quitting California and living in semi-retirement in Kent, only to rejoin the band in 2013. In this 90-minute film, this most English of singers finally gets to take centre-stage and tell both her story and the saga of Fleetwood Mac from her point of view.
