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

Did anyone else hear Metallica in the beginning of this song? I wonder if they were influenced by this band at all. I've never even heard of them before today.

What a ridiculous comment, calling their music pedestrian. Have loved them since I first heard O.K. Ken in 1969. A great band, with nothing to apologize for.

Would think one of the most unknown, under-rated groups ever.

Chicken Shack was certainly a pedestrian band but Stan Webb could cook on the 6 string.

I like how you ask questions on here like you've never heard of google. And then someone answers and it becomes a dialog, a conversation , a discussion. People interacting. What a concept.

Hey thebeave8, I agree, great blues, Chicago Blues, warm fluid sound that heats up cold Chicago winter nights.

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.
