Fifteen years after leaving Fleetwood Mac, singer/keyboardist/songwriter Christine McVie says she’d like to return to the band. In an interview with The Guardian, she said, “I like being with the band, the whole idea of playing music with them.”

She joined her old bandmates onstage in September at their concert at London’s O2 Arena for “Don’t Stop,” which may have re-kindled her interest in being in the band. She told the Guardian, “I miss them all. If they were to ask me I would probably be very delighted … but it hasn’t happened so we’ll have to wait and see.” On discussing why she left in the first place, she said, “I think I was just music’d out. I suffered from some kind of delusion that I wanted to be an English country girl… and it took me 15 years to realise that it’s not really what I wanted at all.”

Last year, Lindsey Buckingham told Radio.com that he “would be shocked if she [Christine] ever expressed any interest to do anything with us. Shocked and pleased.”

“She ended up getting a divorce, she ended up selling her house in L.A., she moved back to England, she quit the band, she sold her publishing,” Buckingham continued in our interview. “She didn’t necessarily have to burn as many bridges as she did. Everyone sometimes wonders whether or not there might have been more of a middle ground for her to strike, not necessarily in terms of her staying in Fleetwood Mac.  But she just wanted to reinvent herself.  She seems to want to lead the antithesis of the life she led before, and I don’t pretend to understand such a radical change but it was obviously something she needed.”
