    Christine McVie, Keyboardist and Singer for Fleetwood Mac, R.I.P.

    A statement on Facebook said: “On behalf of Christine McVie’s family, it is with a heavy heart we are informing you of Christine’s death.

    “She passed away peacefully at 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. RIP Christine McVie.”


    The singer, who was married to the band’s bass guitarist John McVie, joined them in 1970 and was the force behind some of their greatest hits as they shook off their origins as a blues band to become one of the biggest acts in the world.

    Oh no.

    There was recently a Fleetwood Mac retrospective evening on the BBC, which featured their most recent performance with the Rumours line-up (so it was a few years old...).

    It was a terrific show, and really a showcase for Christine, with several solo segments.

    Aww man, that's sad. So talented, and it seemed like despite all the drama around that band, everyone liked her. RIP.
