I sure do wish Christine McVie would rejoin Fleetwood Mac. I wonder why she really left, the reasons she gave seem a bit weak. And as much as I love the Mac now, it still is not the same without Chris. If she doesn't want to fly, why don't they tour playing multiple dates in big cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.), reducing their travel greatly? The fans would travel to see them all together again.

And if she joined them to record an album, it would definitely be more of a Fleetwood Mac record than Say You Will was. I mean, I liked SYW, but with Chris back the classic Mac sound would be back, and they could probably even have some hits out of it.

Christine simply doesn't want or need to do it anymore. Yes, we'd all love more than anything to see her back in the band, but the reality is that she is putting her own happiness first.

I think she's 70 or darn near close to it now? She's made her fortune, worked for 30-40 years, and is enjoying her retirement. I think fans find it hard to accept the fact that their musical idols eventually have to call it quits. Would be pretty awesome if she did decide to do a couple songs on the next Mac Album however!
