Former Fleetwood Mac singer Christine McVie is hoping to regain her place in the group after reuniting with her former bandmates during their recent dates in London.

The British vocalist quit the band in 1998 and embraced a quiet life out of the spotlight, but she returned to the stage with Fleetwood Mac during two shows at London’s O2 Arena in September.

McVie thoroughly enjoyed the reunion, and hopes she can rejoin them in the future.

She tells Britain’s The Guardian newspaper, “It was amazing, like I’d never left. I climbed back on there again and there they were, the same old faces on stage… I like being with the band, the whole idea of playing music with them. I miss them all. If they were to ask me (to rejoin) I would probably be very delighted… but it hasn’t happened so we’ll have to wait and see.”

The star goes on to admit her decision to walk away from the group was probably a mistake, adding, “I think I was just music’d (sic) out. I suffered from some kind of delusion that I wanted to be an English country girl… and it took me 15 years to realize that it’s not really what I wanted at all.”
