Christine McVie, the British singer-songwriter who quit Fleetwood Mac in 1998, is reportedly looking to rejoin the band after having performed with them at a concert in late September.

"I like being with the band, the whole idea of playing music with them," the 70-year-old McVie 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."

McVie's late September onstage reunion occurred at London, England's 02 Arena.

Christine had joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970 after marrying John McVie, the band's guitarist and founding member, who reportedly persuaded her to join the group. The McVies divorced in 1976, and John remarried shortly after.

In October, John McVie announced he had cancer and the band took a hiatus from performances cancelling several shows in Australia and New Zealand.

Christine told the Guardian that her ex-husband's condition was "really good," and "he's having his treatment in LA right now, but they caught it really early so he should be up and running in a couple of months."

Whether or not that invitation to rejoin the band will be extended is unclear however, though Christine appears hopeful.

"If they were to ask me [back] I would probably be very delighted, but it hasn't happened," Christine added. "We'll have to wait and see."

Regarding her apparent retreat to the English countryside that caused her split from the band in 1998, Christine told the Guardian, "I think I was just music'd out."

"I suffered from some kind of delusion that I wanted to be an English country girl, a Sloane Ranger or something," she said. "And it took me 15 years to realize that it's not really what I wanted at all."
