Christine Mcvie QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A duck walked into my kitchen this morning.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
For Stevie, the words are of prime importance; the song moves around the words, rather than the words moving around the song.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I always felt my songs are fairly structured: verse, chorus, verse, guitar solo... but I usually like to put some tag or little piece in somewhere, which is different from the rest of the song. I like to listen to a repeating refrain.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I couldn't go anywhere unless there was a security guard with me. That spoiled my life. It was like being in captivity. Those days are gone, and I don't ever want to see that happen to me again. Now I can wander around the streets of Los Angeles on my own. I like it that way.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I cover most of the sound that we use on records with what I have. And people tell us that we still sound pretty big for a band with four instrumentalists.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I do like my wine.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I do ride a bicycle occasionally, but not those stupid stationary ones you see in gyms. I do have one of those, I must confess, but it's quite literally a pain in the arse, so I don't use it.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I don't really have a backlog of songs. I have more a backlog of ideas. I tend not to complete songs until I know there is something to complete for them. I have tapes full of chords and ideas, little bits and pieces, that I tend to put together whenever a project comes around.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I don't think that some of Lindsey's drumming is the best that could be desired, but he needed to get that off his chest, and he did it.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I don't think there's any particular sound I do for every night. I try to get whatever sound suits the track best when we're recording, and I just look for something that sounds good when we're playing live.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I enjoy my money, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I'd certainly rather be rich than poor.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I find it hard to get excited by just a sound. I have to have a song there, then I'll find what used I can make of that sound within the song.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I haven't turned into some rich monster. I've kept my perspective. But I am a bit spoiled. It's hard not to be a little spoiled by having a lot of money.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I like a light touch, a sensitive piano. My wrists aren't that strong, and if I have to hack too hard, they start breaking down. Fortunately, after playing something like that I take a break and have a drink, or move over to the accordion, or just stagger off the stage until my arms recover.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I never have thought about a video while I'm writing. I've always been of the mind that music should be heard and not seen. It's a strange thing that's going on. I don't know if it's good or not.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I still like to play the blues more than anything else.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I was happily thinking I was retired. That is why I left Fleetwood Mac.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I was in Tower Records in San Francisco a few weeks ago, buying some cassettes, and a couple of people recognized me and ran up with albums, and I just wanted to cover my face and have a seizure or something. I want people to just go away.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I was, in essence, boxed in completely by keyboards. That's what was wrong; I was so stacked in with keyboards I never used that no one could ever see me. It was like being in a prison... Mick and I would laugh about it, because he had the same sensation, being stuck behind his drums all night.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I wasn't raised with money, so I had to get used to having it. I think I've adjusted to it pretty well.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I went to London, where I became a window dresser for an exclusive store. I was actually qualified to be an art teacher, but I didn't want to teach.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I won the Melody Maker award for vocalist of the year.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I wouldn't think a blues album would be that commercially successful, but I don't really care. I'd do it for the love of blues, not for the money. I've got plenty of money.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I'd never want a studio guy. I wouldn't mind working with another keyboard player, but not a studio guy. It sounds very odd, but we're really snobbish about doing everything ourselves whenever possible, so I'd rather just play the piano lines myself.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I'm definitely going to do another solo project down the line some time. But first of all I think there's another Fleetwood Mac studio album to do, after this boxed set, some time next year. I'm not in a hurry to do the solo project. I've got to be ready for that.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I'm looking more like my dogs every day - it must be the shaggy fringe and the ears.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I'm rather old-fashioned about this video business. It's all relatively new. We really don't do videos, Fleetwood Mac. We've only done two.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
I've never written with the intention of writing hits. I guess I'm a commercial writer, though. My songs do tend to come out two verses, bridge, guitar solo, last verse, and tag. When I've finished a piece I do have my opinion about whether it will sell, of course, but I'm not always right.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
If all the songs were autobiographical, I'd probably be 105 years old by now, I would have gone through so many different emotions.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
It really comes down to Mick. He's the one who was constantly trying to get these five people in one room together. This is his love, his baby. It's his band, and there's nothing more he loves to do than get up on stage and play with us.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
It was like getting together with a great friend and having a drink. All of that animosity was swept aside.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
It was too much responsibility for me to do the producing. I didn't trust my skills to that degree. I felt I needed someone to lean on.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
John and I used to basically ignore each other. We were cold as ice to each other. He found it easier that way.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
Learn your instrument. Be honest. Don't do anything phony. There is so much crap floating around. There is plenty of room for a bit of honest writing.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
Mick and John are happy with me writing songs for the band at this particular point in time. I don't know what's going to happen down the road a couple of years.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
My range seems to have been getting higher. I just can't sing as low as I used to. I don't know how I ever recorded some of the old songs in such low keys. Lindsey often changes his songs, too. He records a song in E, then changes to F. That can affect the vocal blend a lot.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
My songs are self-explanatory... somebody pointed out to me that... my songs pretty much speak for themselves.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
Normally there's a characteristic in each song, either a riff or an underlying musical theme, that makes the keyboard part clear if you look for it.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
Of course I get writer's block. It's terrible.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
Other people seem to write about love, don't they? It seems to be the least pretentious subject to write about. I've been taking a lot of criticism for it, but at least it's honest. But one shouldn't go and make a solo album if they can't take a little knocking, should they?
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
Since there's only room for me to write a few songs on each band album, I really have to use my songs. But on my own album I had room to use songs I wanted.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
Some of the best songs I've written, I've written in 10 minutes.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
Stevie writes ethereal mystical lyrics, but the moment I write words like that, I get this chill up my spine, kind of getting embarrassed and not feeling sincere about it. But if you're sincere, you can write anything you like. In this stage of my musical life I don't feel honest doing that.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
Suddenly the desire to write tricked back into my life again, not that I would want to tour or go on the road. Once you have been writing all of your life, it is part of what you do. What else do you do?
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
The band wanted me to expand my role and have a little more freedom... I may not play very well, but I play it the way it suits the band.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
The chemistry was still there. To me, that was the biggest thing: Would the chemistry be there? Can we really go ahead and do this? And it was obvious within the first moment of plugging in the instruments that the magic was still there. It was a fantastic feeling.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
The last thing I ever thought was that this band could seriously work together again.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
The old Fleetwood Mac was much better; they did some beautiful and, to my mind, very authentic blues. Chicken Shack did pretty well in Europe, but after I left, it was over.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
There were a lot of bad feelings when Lindsey first left the band. But there's been a lot of healing going on, growing up, maturing. The bond is a great deal stronger than what we first thought.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
There's a whole bunch of unfinished stuff. Then I've got books of lyrics. I find it frustrating to finish a song and not be able to record it... so I don't write a million songs.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
This configuration of Fleetwood Mac's been together 10 years, and it's taken us entire years to make a single record.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
We all enjoyed the success of Rumours obviously.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
We had some rehearsals where I was playing on four songs... but we dropped them from the set because it was interfering with my stage work, and I guess it wasn't that necessary.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
We were like a big family even then. Mick's like my brother.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
We're going to try and do something different this time, and away from even what we expect to do. We haven't really formed any concrete plan at the moment, but whatever it is, it's going to have a twist.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
We're more like brother and sister now. I'm not trying to paint too rosy a picture. I think it took quite a few years to be able to sit down and talk to each other. It's all very nostalgic for us as well. There hasn't been an angry word between us, fingers crossed.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
We've gone in with one song and come out with a completely different song.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
What's past is past, it's too bloody late to do anything else. I've been very blessed and lucky in my life. To want to change the path of destiny is kind of a mistake, it leads to discontent. I don't feel complacent, but I feel content.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
When I married John, I felt that it was so great to be around them anyway, just as one of their wives. I used to listen to all their music.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
You can only mend the vase so many times before you have to chuck it away.
Quotation of Christine Mcvie
You spend days getting the right drum sound. And vocals take a long time-you can't just do one take and it's perfect.
