Darren Haynes, Editor of "The Works" magazine published by The British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA), has secured an interview with Christine McVie to be published in the magazine this June. He's offering Fleetwood Mac fans, in particular, Christine McVie fans, the opportunity to ask Christine a question.
With such a lengthy career crafting some of Fleetwood Mac's biggest hits, and a few solo hits of her own, I'm sure you've often wondered what certain songs she's written are really all about. Maybe your question is about some of the more obscure tracks on albums that weren't necessarily hit singles? What situation or person inspired her at the time she wrote a certain track, or maybe you are curious about her songwriting process. Does the music come first, or the lyrics? Does she keep a journal? After being away from the spotlight for a number of years, and with new music written, maybe you would like to know what the new songs are about and how she found writing again after so many years away from it. Wow... There are so many possible questions to ask... So much to learn.
So take a minute, think about it and submit your question.
Remember, your question should focus on Christine's songwriting skills or the meaning behind certain songs/lyrics.
The deadline for submissions is this Friday, April 25, 2014, so you only have a couple of days.
All questions should be submitted by email to Darren Haynes.
Your subject line should read "Christine McVie Question".
Good luck... and ask away!
