Her family has reported that Christine McVie, a star of the band Fleetwood Mac, passed away at the age of 79 after a brief battle with sickness.
The British-American rock band was established in London in 1967, and they went on to become one of the most popular groups of all time by selling more than 100 million records all over the world.
The songs Dreams, Go Your Own Way, and Everywhere is among their most well-known works.
The following is an excerpt from a statement released by her family: “It is with a heavy heart that we are telling you about Christine’s passing. After a brief battle with illness, she passed away in comfort in the hospital this morning, on November 30th, 2022.
“She was surrounded by her loved ones at the time. We kindly ask that you respect the privacy of the family during this extremely difficult time, and we would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being and revered musician who was loved by everyone.” “We would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being who was loved by everyone.”
Fleetwood Mac became one of the most well-known rock bands of the 1970s and 1980s, despite having a troubled past. The band’s lineup included Mick Fleetwood, Christine, and John McVie, as well as Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. Despite this, Fleetwood Mac was successful.
Rumors, the band’s album that was published in 1977 and went on to become one of the best-selling albums of all time, is widely considered to be their best work. It featured smash singles like “Second Hand News” and “You Make Loving Fun.”
In addition to various songs that have been certified multiple times with the platinum award, the album has sold more than 40 million copies around the world.
“There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie,” the band said in a statement that was posted on Twitter. She was definitely one of a kind; she was exceptional, and her gift was unfathomable.
“She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life at any point in time.”
“We count ourselves extremely fortunate to have spent our lives with her. Both on an individual and a collective level, we held Christine in very high esteem, and we are extremely grateful for the wonderful memories we shared with her. She will be greatly missed in every way.
Songbird, which is considered to be one of the band’s most well-known tracks, as well as You Make Loving Fun, Oh Daddy, and Little Lies were all written by singer-songwriter and keyboardist McVie.
Christine Perfect was the name of McVie’s debut solo album, which she released in 1970. The album was named after her maiden name. During the course of this year, she gave an interview with the publication Uncut in which she stated, “There are maybe a couple of good songs on it.”
McVie did not release another solo album until 2004 when she released an album titled In the Meantime. It took her another 14 years to release a follow-up solo album, which was simply titled, Christine McVie.
Songbird is the name of the singer-most songwriter’s recent album, which was published in June of this year. The album is a compilation of songs taken from two of her earlier solo albums.
She was one of the eight band members that were honored by being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that same year (1998).
When almost three decades with the group, McVie parted ways with them in 1998, but she eventually came back in 2014 after a one-off performance at the O2 rekindled her passion for the stage.
During that time, she expressed her amazement to the Guardian by saying, “It felt as if I’d never left.” After climbing up on there for the second time, I saw the same familiar people on stage.
After she left the band and relocated from California to Kent, she made an appearance on the program Desert Island Discs on BBC Radio 4 in 2017 and revealed that she had developed agoraphobia as a result of withdrawing from the outside world.
The passing of McVie comes just two years after the passing of Peter Green, co-founder of Fleetwood Mac, who passed away at the age of 73.
