Christine McVie, Fleetwood Mac singer-songwriter, dies at 79, family confirms

NEW YORK — Christine McVie, the British-born Fleetwood Mac singer, songwriter and keyboardist whose cool, soulful alto helped define classics like “You Make Loving Fun,” “Everywhere” and “Don’t Stop,” is aging died aged 79.

Her death was announced on the band’s social media accounts on Wednesday. No cause of death or other details were immediately disclosed.

“She was truly one of a kind, special and talented beyond measure,” reads part of the band’s statement.

McVie was a consistent presence and personality in a band known for their frequent line-up changes and volatile personalities – notably fellow singer-songwriters Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham.

During their commercial peak years from 1975 to 1980, the band sold tens of millions of records and were a continuing source of fascination for fans, turning personal struggles into melodic, captivating songs. McVie herself was married to bassist John McVie, and their breakup — along with Nicks and Buckingham’s breakup — was famously documented on the 1977 release Rumors, which ranks among the best-selling albums of all time.

Fleetwood Mac, co-founded by drummer Mick Fleetwood in 1967, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. The group’s many other hit singles included “Dreams,” “Go Your Own Way,” and “Little Lies.”
