A Brief One from Doug Draper
Posted December 1st. 2022 on Niagara At Large
For those of you who have been following Niagara At Large for a while, you know that I sometimes post something about a milestone moment – good, bad or sad – in the world of popular music and culture
This time it is a sad moment as news circulates about the passing this November 30th of Christine McVie, the keyboardist and primary songwriter and vocalist in the super group Fleetwood Mac, at age 79.
Sometimes a group, even one that has been around as Fleetwood Mac, can hang in their and put out one more album or do one more tour. But it is hard to see that happening here, withouth Christine McVie. She was that consequential to this band.
And just as a bit of a jolt on aging and how fast time flies front, it was more than a bit of a smack down this November 30th when I heard news of the death of Christine McVie at age 79. Christine McVie? 79? I couldn’t believe it.
The consolation is that her music and all those great songs she wrote and shared with us, from ‘Don’t Stop’ to ‘Everywhere’, ‘Little Lies’ and ‘Over My Head’, live on.
