  • February 02, 2003: From Live Daily News (January 28, 2003) by Rob Evans - "Fleetwood Mac has set an April 15 release date for its first studio album of all-new material in more than a decade, and plans to open a tour in May, according to Reprise Records. The as-yet-untitled album is the band's first since the departure of keyboardist/vocalist Christine McVie. Fleetwood Mac's previous release was 1997's "The Dance," which combined re-workings of some of the band's old material with a few new tracks. Fleetwood Mac's most-recent studio album of new material was 1990's "Behind the Mask," but it did not feature core member Lindsay [sic] Buckingham. Buckingham produced the forthcoming album. According to Reprise, a track from the new album, "Say You Will," can be heard during a promo for "That '70s Show" that is currently airing on the Fox network. Details of the tour haven't been announced, but should surface as the album's release date nears." Just a few comments-- Fleetwood Mac's last studio album was, of course, Time in 1995. The forthcoming album has now been named ("Say You Will") and once competively priced links to preorder the album are available, they will promptly be posted to The Penguin.

  • April 13, 2002: People Magazine, Insider, Page 47, by Tom Cunneff: "It's been 15 years since Fleetwood Mac released their last studio album, Tango in the Night, but their fans won't have to wait much longer for a new CD. The band - Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie - is back in an L. A. studio recording new songs. (Christine McVie, John's ex, called it quits and is home in England.) The group had hoped to get going earlier this year, but the birth of Fleetwood's twin daughters in February replaced rock and roll with lullabies for a while. The two biggest changes between now and then? They are recording during the day as opposed to the middle of the night, and Wheat Thins are the energy booster of choice. I hear Buckingham insists on 12 boxes at all times." Thanks to Barbara for posting this on The Ledge.

  • April 21, 2000: From the April George Hawkins Q&A: "I haven't seen Chris for over a year. I also hadn't spoken with her in nearly that long; until last night, ironically! She called me from England. She has been there for some time, and has been living the life of a "grand English matron", as she put it, "piddling around the garden in my sun hat and Wellies" (Wellies are Wellington rubber, over the calf-style gardening and mud boots). I tried to remember and ask some of the questions I've received about her, but the moment was so personal and intimate, I couldn't bring myself to conduct an interview. Although I will pass on what she said that is relevant to all of us: She lives in the country, and has a local pub. She has good "sort of salt of the earth" friends and pubmates. She doesn't hang with the English Rock royalty. She pursues her two modest passions, cooking and gardening, reads, and tends to her dogs (one of which is named George). Christine has a music room on her property and described the songs she's been writing as "tougher and not as soft as in the past". "More brash and less careful". Interesting, huh? She sounded healthy and happy and didn't commit one way or the other about doing another record."
  • August 5, 1999: In VH1's current "100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll" special, Christine McVie was voted to position #63.
  • Christine McVie's self-titled album was released on compact disc from Warner Brothers on November 25, 1997.

From Launch.com: "Proceeds from the shows will go to the RAC's legislative and lobbying efforts to change the way the record business operates, methods that some performers have called "unconscionable." Among the issues the group wants addressed at both the local and national level are better copyright protection, punitive accounting and auditing practices, missed payments for health care and pension funds, free agency for performers, and contract length, as recording artists are currently held to deals for longer than is legal for other workers."
