A key figure in the British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac during its most successful period in the late-1970s, Christine McVie sang, wrote and played keyboards on some of the band's biggest hits, including "Over My Head," "Say You Love Me," "Don't Stop" and "Little Lies. " She emerged in the British blues scene of the late 1960s as a member of Chicken Shack, scoring a Top 20 hit with a cover of Etta James' "I'd Rather Go Blind" that established her as one of England's most soulful voices. After marrying Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie, she joined the group in 1970 and rose with it to global stardom on the strength of their 1976 album <i>Fleetwood Mac</i> and especially <i>Rumours</i> (1977), arguably the band's finest release. However, the Mac's ascent to stardom was not without its sacrifices, most notably the McVie's marriage, which dissolved in 1978 after years of turmoil. Christine McVie emerged as a solo success with her eponymous 1984 solo album, but soon returned to the Fleetwood Mac ranks for a string of wildly popular records in the late 1980s and early 1990s. After their induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, McVie retired from Fleetwood Mac, but her contributions to its astounding popularity made her one of the more accomplished female singer-songwriters of the 20th century.
