History of Christine McVie

Christine McVie was born on July 12, 1943, in Lancashire, England. She was given the name Christine Anne Perfect. As far as her career goes, she was born and raised in a musical family. Her grandfather was an organist and her father was a violin teacher at Westminster Abbey. She knew what would be her profession for the rest of her life. So she started taking music seriously at the age of 11 and studied hard and was so immersed in Britain’s burgeoning blues scene. She started her own band (Chicken Shack) with a group of former bandmates, Andy Silvester and Stan Webb, in 1967. McVie did a great job with that band and was awarded with the U.K. music magazine’s Melody Maker’s Best Female Vocalist award in 1969.
