For The Weekend: When we used to go to The Ritz, a blues club on Bournemouth seafront, in 1966 / 67 / 68 we would see, amongst other bands, Chicken Shack. Stan Webb was the front-man / singer / guitarist, and they played great songs.
Christine Perfect, who later became Christine McVie in Fleetwood Mac, was the pianist in Chicken Shack, and the object of every red-blooded males' dreams - a nice looking female in a blues / rock band, was rare.
'I Would Rather Go Blind' was her showstopper -
'Songbird' was her Fleetwood Mac showstopper -
Enjoy the weekend.
