Christine’s father was a concert violinist and her grandfather was an organist at Westminster Abbey. At the age of four, she learned to play the piano but she would not take music seriously until she was 11. She studied classical music for four years and then decided to focus on rock ‘n’ roll, influenced by artists such as The Everly Brothers. In college, she studied sculpture for five years, hoping to eventually teach art, but during this time, she met a few musicians who invited her to perform with a band called “Sounds of Blue”. After graduating from college, she moved to London, but had to work as a department store window dresser.

In 1967, Christine’s former band mates Stan Webb and Andy Silvester formed the blues band Chicken Shack, and invited her to become the band’s pianist and to sing background vocals. They would go on and make two albums with the band, with most songs written by Christine, including the hit song “I’d Rather Go Blind” which featured her as a lead vocal. While a part of Chicken Shack, they would often meet with Fleetwood Mac, and soon Mick Fleetwod invited her to play piano for their second album “Mr. Wonderful”. She then became part of Fleetwood, after marrying bassist John McVie.

She received a lot of praise for her musical skills and decided to release a solo album “Christine Perfect”, but she would become a vital member of Fleetwood Mac, and would join them in recording the album “Future Games”. They had difficulties during the early1970s which led to the band moving to the United States to have a fresh start. Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joined the band after their move, and they released “Fleetwood Mac” which would go on and have multiple high-charting songs. In 1976, they released “Rumours” – categorised as one of the best albums of the rock era – but after the tour for the album, she and John divorced. Despite this, the two continued making music with the band, and reunited to record the album “Mirage”. She also recorded another solo album, but would continue to perform with Fleetwood Mac. In 1990, they released “Behind the Mask” and it would certify gold in the United States, and platinum in the UK. After her father’s death, she decided to retire from touring, but the band reunited in 1997 to release the album “The Dance”, which went to number 1 on the US charts. They toured once more and became part of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

McVie then decided to return to England in 1998 and rarely appeared in public for a few years. She continued to support Fleetwood Mac, but would focus on a solo album called “In the Meantime”. She also appeared in various events, mostly to accept awards, and then in 2013 she performed with the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band in Hawaii. This led to a few performances with Fleetwood Mac and she would officially return to the band in 2014.

For her personal life, it is known that Christine married John McVie in 1970 but they divorced six years later. In 1979, she dated Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys but they also broke up after three years. In 1986, she married Eddy Quintela – who contributed to a lot of her songs – but they also divorced during the mid-1990s.
