Sheryl Crow has the honor of introducing Fleetwood Mac to Rock Hall. She says of McVie and Stevie Nicks: “In my opinion, Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks are the first ladies of rock and roll. It’s cool that Christine McVie is the pianist in the band.”

Crow added: “She told me it wasn’t about being ‘very good for a girl’. It was about being great. She taught me that I could write a moving rock song on the piano. When I first listened to By the time she sang “Spare Me A Little [Of Your Love]” (from Bare Trees in 1972), I was in shock and I still have the same reaction to that song to this day.”

McVeigh is known to have resigned from Fleetwood Mac in 1998 because he developed a fear of flying. She rejoined the band in 2014 and remained a member until her death.

McVie’s elegant voice, deft keyboard playing and songwriting skills were a major influence on Fleetwood Mac. She wrote/co-wrote some of the band’s greatest and best songs, which are highlighted below.
