1derful: It's such a cruel irony that Fleetwood Mac is named after the people in the group that no one gives a fark about.

I know that Lindsay Buckingham plays guitar with his fingers and doesn't use a pick, and I know that Stevie Nicks is sometimes a bbw and practices witchcraft, but I honestly couldn't tell you what instrument Christie McVie plays or what contribution she's ever made to that band.


You gots to be trolling? She wrote and sang some HUGE hits for that band.

TheXerox: Dammit! Christie McVie not touring was exactly why I did not see FM when their tour hit my town. If I had the time and cash, I'd fly out to London and attend that show just to hear her.

Songbird, FTW.


Sux it's just for two shows and a couple songs apparently too. So underrated but absolutely essential. She was the Rick Wright of FM.

Now that was a concert, but at "12 years old", I remember Fleetwood Mac was considered dinosaurs and on their way out even then....


I saw them on the Tusk tour in Honolulu (got two 11th row tix for washing and waxing my sister's car), and in that iteration of the band, Christine was integral. Without her superior songwriting and vocals it would have been just another concert. Ms. Nicks is pretty and a good songwriter with a distinctive voice, but Christine had chops that Stevie couldn't touch.

Dragonflew: Why am I the sole person in this thread to correctly call her Christine?


Perfect.

OgreMagi: Third_Uncle_Eno: Christine "significant percentage of their songs".... umm... maybe 1/3 ? i'm pretty sure most records were 1/3 each Buckingham, Nicks, McVie.

I would call 33% a significant percentage of their songs.  I didn't say the majority.

I'm not saying Stevie is a bad song writer.  In fact, she's damn good and certainly better than I am.  I'm just saying that musically she is very limited.  Lindsay, on the other hand, seems to prefer F#Maj and uses a huge variety of chords.


Lindsey is versatile as hell. Pick up his solo albums and you'll see an amazing range of influences and original ideas, as well as some remarkable musical talent.

And I'm sorry, but Buckingham Nicks is one of the best albums ever, and that's because of both Lindsey AND Stevie. When Fleetwood Mac wanted to recruit Lindsey alone based on that album, he said it wasn't a deal unless Stevie came with him. Yeah, they were a couple at the time (though on the fast track to a bad breakup, like the rest of Fleetwood Mac) but Stevie is a decent songwriter and has an original, attractive voice.

I think a lot of the time when people make fun of Stevie's voice, they're thinking of Kim Carnes or Bonnie Tyler, and not Stevie. Stevie has a great range and can really belt out a song.

Lindsay is one of the most underrated guitarists in the rock world.  He deserves far more credit than he gets.

Christie plays piano and wrote a significant percentage of their songs.

Also, everything Stevie has ever written is written in C major and is based on three chords.

Stevie isn't a witch. She actually gets pretty offended by the insinuation.

She's a songwriter.  It's sometimes poetic fiction.

Just like the Beatles didn't really know a Bible-reading, gun-toting raccoon, travel in a yellow submarine in an octopus' garden, or attend a trial during which someone was bludgeoned with a hammer.
