Death of Christine McVie at age 79.

There aren’t enough words to express how heartbroken we are to hear about Christine McVie’s demise, the group wrote in a tweet on Wednesday afternoon. She was absolutely unique, exceptional, and incredibly gifted.

In addition to being the finest friend someone could have, she was the best musician anyone could have in their band. We had a wonderful life with her, and the band continued. “As a group and individuals, we genuinely loved Christine McVie and are grateful for our beautiful memories of her. She is going to be sorely missed.

After a “brief illness,” Christine McVie “went away quietly” at a hospital, according to a message on Instagram from her family.

The family requested that people respect their privacy at this challenging time and asked that everyone remember Christine McVie as a great human being and revered artist who was adored by all.

John McVie, the bassist for Fleetwood Mac, and Christine McVie were once wed. One of the creative forces behind the band’s wildly successful album “Rumours,” published in 1977, was the conflict in their relationship.

Some of the most beloved lyrics in the Fleetwood Mac songbook were written by Christine McVie, who also wrote the lyrics to international blockbusters including “Everywhere,” “Little Lies,” and “Don’t Stop”—a song that became associated with Bill Clinton‘s first presidential campaign.

In her lyrics, she described the highs and lows of love in straightforward yet lyrical terms. One of “Rumours'” pleasant high points and a mainstay of Fleetwood Mac’s concerts, “You Make Loving Fun,” perfectly encapsulated the carefree abandon of romance.

One of the four songs from “Rumours” that Christine McVie wrote alone, “Songbird,” captured a more reflective mood. She sings while a gloomy piano tune plays, “For you, there’ll be no more crying / For you, the sun will be beaming.”

At its commercial height in the 1970s, Fleetwood Mac sold millions of records and became one of the greatest rock bands. Fans all over the world were mesmerized by the transcendent music and riveted by the drama taking place behind the scenes.
