Older members will be saddened at the loss of the Fleetwood Mac Keyboard/Vocalist.

AKA Christine Perfect.

Not only older members. or am i already old at 44? 

in 2015 i saw a concert of Fleetwood mac at sportpaleis Antwerp and she carried the whole show, which was in fact not a good show due to all ego's in the band battling for the limelight. Except hers, without her it would have been a trainwreck.

Bams--Anyone who witnessed a live gig by Fleetwood Mac in that era experienced a drug mess of a gig that was only held together by Christine and it was possibly the main reason why she left the band for a while as she probably got totally fed up of having to go onstage every night with a bunch of drugged up morons.
Having said that, if you managed to drop on the right night of the tour then you would witness one of the best gigs of your life.
I did a fair few gigs with Chicken Shack back in the seventies and it was very rare back then to see a female keyboard player in a band full of guys let alone take most of the lead vocal parts with an amazing voice and she always seemed to have a very calming influence on the rest of the band.
I saw an hour long feature programme on TV sometime last year all about Christine and her life and it was brilliant, bringing back some great memories for me---She will be sadly missed.

That documentary about her was very good - she came across as an intelligent, talented and down to earth character in complete contrast to documentaries I've seen about the band itself! The 'excesses of rock and roll' summed up their lifestyle after their success with Rumours and were worthy of a Spinal Tap movie. She will be missed by many. 
RIP Christine McVie.

When somebody can sit at a piano and captivate an audience she must be very special.

Goodnight Christine.
