Biography

Christine McVie (born Christine Anne Perfect, July 12, 1943, in Birmingham) is an English singer, keyboardist, and songwriter. Her primary fame came as a member of the band Fleetwood Mac, though she has also released three solo albums. McVie is said to have become addicted to Rock and Roll from the first time she looked through a Fats Domino songbook.

Early life

Christine Anne Perfect was born on July 12th, 1943. Her father, Cyril, was a college professor and concert violinist, and mother Beatrice (called Tee) was a medium, a psychic and a faith healer. Her grandfather had played the organ in Westminster Abbey. Although Christine had been introduced to the piano at age four, she didn’t really take to music until she was 11. She continued taking classical music lessons until the age of 15, when her older brother, John, brought home a Fats Domino songbook which transformed her musical interest from classical music to rock n’ roll. Other early influences include The Everly Brothers and The Beatles.


Early Music

Christine studied sculpture at an art college in Birmingham, England for 5 years, with the goal of becoming an art teacher. During that time she met a number of budding musicians in England’s blues scene.
