Chicken Shack

This British blues-rock group is remembered mostly for their keyboard player, Christine Perfect, who would join Fleetwood Mac after marrying John McVie and changing her last name. Although they were one of the more pedestrian acts of the British blues boom, Chicken Shack was quite popular for a time in the late '60s, placing two albums in the British Top 20. The frontperson of Chicken was not Perfect/McVie, but guitarist Stan Webb, who would excite British audiences by entering the crowds at performances, courtesy of his 100-meter-long guitar lead. They were signed to Mike Vernon's Blue Horizon label, a British blues pillar that had its biggest success with early Fleetwood Mac.

Chicken Shack was actually not far behind Mac in popularity in the late '60s, purveying a more traditional brand of Chicago blues, heavily influenced by Freddie King. Although Webb took most of the songwriting and vocal duties, Christine Perfect also chipped in with occasional compositions and lead singing. In fact, she sang lead on their only British Top 20 single, "I'd Rather Go Blind" (1969). But around that time, she quit the music business to marry John McVie and become a housewife, although, as the world knows, that didn't last too long. Chicken Shack never recovered from Christine's loss, commercially or musically. Stan Webb kept Chicken Shack going, with a revolving door of other musicians, all the way into the 1980s, though he briefly disbanded the group to join Savoy Brown for a while in the mid-'70s. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

Stan Webb and Chicken Shack are still performing throughout Europe. He is the only original member.

This is my kind of blues! Absolutely a first rate band. So sorry they broke up. And, yeah, whatever happened to Stan Webb? Does he make music any more?

I saw Chicken Shack at the Bath blues festival at Twerton Park in the early 70's, they were a support to Pete Green's Fleetwood Mac and they absolutely blew the rest away. Stan Webb is a brilliant blues guitarist, Awesome band.

Interesting that the author of the bio calls their music pedestrian. I think it's pretty damn good. The production quality may be dated but who cares. Really good music.

Saw Chicken Shack in the late 60s. Brilliant!! So good to hear them again.

Not bad for a bunch of white folks from Britain, I suppose. I mean, if that's what you like, hopefully because it's all you really know though. More of a rock feel here than blues. I find that listening to the artist who inspired these guys are always more satisfying! Muddy, Little Walter, Big Walter Horton, Jimmy Reed...etc. More feeling, more soul, more groove, more real. Just my own experience. If this is the music that does it for you, then by all means, devour it, and continue to love it!

Love Chicken Shack and the real good Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green and the God loving bunch. Check out FM live from Boston in the early 70s now out. Outstanding blues from these purveyors across the pond.

How did I not know Chicken Shack? I am a pathetic looser. I will go away now.

Chicken Shack was one of those myriad blues rock based boogie bands who never quite cracked the U.S. market, although a cult following thrived here through FM AOR stations. Stan Webb could bend the 6 string pretty well but never in the same vain as a Alvin Lee.
