Singer-songwriter-keyboardist Christine McVie, a longtime member of Fleetwood Mac, died Wednesday after a short illness. She was 79. A statement from Fleetwood Mac said: “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.”
… McVie, her ex-husband John McVie and other members of Fleetwood Mac past and present were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
