Sad to hear of the death of Fleetwood Mac’s co-lead vocalist and keyboard player Christine McVie today, aged 79.

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.

First drawing attention singing with Spencer Davis and then as keyboard player and backing and co-lead vocalist of British blues band Chicken Shack. With her on vocals they recorded one of the definitive versions of blues standard I’d Rather Go Blind, their biggest hit.

Marrying Fleetwood Mac’s bassist John McVie in 1969, she first worked with the band as a session musician on the Peter Green tracks on their second album, before becoming a full member in 1970. She wrote some of the band’s biggest hits including Little Lies, Everywhere, Don’t Stop, Say You Love Me, and Songbird. Another of those bands, like Abba, whose disintegrating romantic relationships were charted on records, most notably on Rumours.

A great songwriter, vocalist and pianist, she will be sadly missed.

I was truly shocked and saddened to hear of this. I have, in the past, often been wont to make snarkastic comments about how schmaltzy Christine’s songwriting contributions are when I’m driving around listening to Rumours in my car, but I am truly affectionate toward and appreciative of her musical contributions. Her vocal harmonies with Lindsey Buckingham were absolutely magical (it’s always particularly sad when one half of a really special harmony duo is gone – like David Gilmour and Rick Wright from Pink Floyd), and her keyboard playing was always rock solid.

I know I grew up hearing “Don’t Stop” and “Say You Love Me” and “You Make Loving Fun” on the radio, but I think the first song of hers that I consciously listened to properly on my own was “Songbird”, which I’ve impulsively covered in her memory. My top favorite of her Fleetwood songs is probably “Hold Me” from Mirage (although, to be fair, that’s mostly due to Lindsey’s masterful arrangement and production, and the rich vocal harmonies), or “Over And Over” from Tusk.

Rest in peace, Songbird a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-paul-7john-lennon-salute_gifheart
