Fleetwood Mac--at least the superstar version of the band--was built on three pillars, a trio of singer/songwriters who gave them their distinctive sound: Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and our birthday girl Christine McVie.

She was born Christine Perfect--what a great name.  She was singing and playing keyboards for a band, Chicken Shack, when she met and married Fleetwood Mac's John McVie (he's the "Mac"), and joined her husband's band in 1970.  The group was reasonably successful until they added Nicks and Buckingham in 1975 and shot into the stratosphere.

So happy 75th, Christine.

Did not know you were a fan. I think some of these songs were so overplayed in their day it was hard to like them at some point. Song I like best of these is You make loving fun. But I feel it takes to long to release to the chorus (title).

There was a plenty of different music in the 70s, but a lot of the most popular was soft rock. Plenty of that is lame, but the best of it--which includes Fleetwood Mac--is quite nice.

They may have overplayed it a bit back then, but I think it still sounds pretty good today.
