Christine McVie: Who Was She?
Christine Anne McVie (née Perfect; 12 July 1943–30 November 2022), an English musician, was the vocalist and keyboardist for Fleetwood Mac. In 1970, she joined the group.
She also recorded three albums on her own. Her songs mostly dealt with love and relationships. According to AllMusic, she was a vocalist and composer who was “Unabashedly easy-on-the-ears and the driving driver behind some of Fleetwood Mac’s biggest successes.” On Fleetwood Mac’s 1988 Greatest Hits CD, she composed or co-authored eight songs, including “Don’t Stop,” “Everywhere,” and “Little Lies.”
McVie received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Fleetwood Mac in 1998.

Peter Green acted as best man at McVie and John McVie’s 1968 wedding. They celebrated at a hotel in Birmingham with Joe Cocker, who just so happened to be there instead of going on their honeymoon.
Although they no longer worked together professionally, the couple remained friends after their separation in 1976. While Rumours was being made, she had an affair with Fleetwood Mac’s lighting designer Curry Grant, which served as the basis for the song “You Make Loving Fun.”
From 1979 to 1982, she dated Dennis Wilson, a member of the Beach Boys. McVie married Portuguese musician and lyricist Eddy Quintela on October 18, 1986.
