Christine McVie, the vocalist and keyboardist of Fleetwood Mac, died on Wednesday after a brief illness.

She was 79.

The musician’s family announced her death on social media, writing that she died at the hospital “following a short illness,” surrounded by her family.

“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.”

From People:

Fleetwood Mac, with whom McVie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, also paid tribute to the star, writing there were “no words to describe our sadness” following her death.

“She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure,” the rockers wrote in a social media statement. “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, who sang on classic hits like “Everywhere” and “You Make Loving Fun,” joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970, and played alongside her then-husband John McVie.

She told Rolling Stone last year that while a band reunion was still up in the air, she didn’t feel “physically up for” one final tour.

“I’m in quite bad health. I’ve got a chronic back problem which debilitates me. I stand up to play the piano, so I don’t know if I could actually physically do it. What’s that saying? The mind is willing, but the flesh is weak,” she said. “I’m quite happy being at home. I don’t know if I ever want to tour again. It’s bloody hard work… I’ll just leave it open and say that we might.”

McVie was born into a musical family in the British village of Bouth in July 1943. Dad Cyril was a concert violinist and music lecturer at a local school, while her grandfather played the organ in Westminster Abbey.
