    She wrote more of the band's hits than any of the others.

    This is by far my favorite recording by the band: Everywhere recorded live.

    oh man. this bums me out. She was fun to see. The most proper of them on stage - more english class less rock'n roll.
    Without friends none of this is possible.

    just this long weekend past while gathered, we were spinning rumours and i remarked that, after many listenings, songbird is the tune on that album that i enjoy most.

    seventy nine sure doesn't seem very old anymore.

    Such a shame. She was always my favorite member of the band. Really big fan of her. Very talented musician

    Spare me a little of your love. Written by her for the original FM - before Buckingham/Nicks took it over. Christie will be missed for sure!

    Thanks for all the melodies, Ms. McVie. Part of the soundtrack of our lives.

    A friend of mine stopped getting older at 72. One day he said “my 80’s aren’t that far away” I said “what? You just turned 72” , he said “that was four years ago”. Must have been my lost years.

    Wikipedia says she played and sang on Kiln House; uncredited. Great album.

    John of Phoenix made an appearance here.

    That is all.
