Vocalist Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac has died at the age of 79.
Her family made the announcement Wednesday stating that she died at the hospital after a short illness:
“She passed away peacefully at the hospital this morning, Wednesday, November 30th 2022, following a short illness. She was in the company of her family. We kindly ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this extremely painful 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 universally.”
Christine joined the group in 1970 as a co-vocalist. She spent many years with the band before announcing her departure in 1998 due to her fear of flying and panic attacks.
Despite leaving the band, she treated fans in 2014 by joining the group on their On with the Show tour.
The group has also released a statement regarding her passing:
“There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie. She was truly one-of-a-kind, special, and talented beyond measure. She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life. We were so lucky to have a life with her. Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.”
