Fleetwood Mac singer-songwriter Christine McVie has died


Christine McVie, the English musician whose smoky voice and romantic lyrics catapulted rock group Fleetwood Mac to international success, died Wednesday, the band and her family announced on social media. 

“There are no words to describe our sadness at the death of Christine McVie,” the group said in a statement on Twitter Wednesday afternoon. “He was truly unique, special and talented beyond measure.

“He was the best musician in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their lives. 

We were so lucky to have a life with him,” the band added. “Individually and together, we deeply appreciate Christine and are grateful for our incredible memories. She will be greatly missed.”

In a statement on Instagram, McVeigh’s family said he “passed away peacefully” surrounded by loved ones at a hospital after a “short illness”.

“We kindly ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this very painful time,” the family said, “and we want everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human and revered musician who was loved. 

McVie was once married to Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie. Their relationship turmoil was a creative driver behind the band’s popular “Rumours” album released in 1977.

Christine McVie penned some of the most treasured lines in the Fleetwood Mac songbook, penning the lyrics to global hits like “Everywhere,” “Little Lies” and “Don’t Stop” that became synonymous with the first presidential campaign.

In his songs, he describes the ups and downs of love in simple yet poignant terms. “You Make Loving Fun,” a melodic high point of “Rumors” and a staple of the Fleetwood Mac tour, encapsulated the gleeful abandon of romance.
