Singer-songwriter Christine McVie, one of the members of the band Fleetwood Mac, has died. His family informed that the 79-year-old singer died on Wednesday. It is said that he died in the hospital yesterday morning. At that time the family members were beside. The band also confirmed McVeigh’s death on social media. However, the cause of his death has not been revealed.
After joining Fleetwood Mac in 1970, McVeigh quickly became the band’s soulmate. His name is associated with famous songs like ‘Little Lies’, ‘Everywhere’, ‘Don’t Stop’, ‘Say You Love Me’, ‘Songbird’.
In the seventies and eighties, Fleetwood Mac was one of the greatest rock bands in the world. 1977 saw the release of the band’s album ‘Rumours’, which was inspired by the break-up of two other duos in the band, including McVie. The album is considered one of the best-selling albums of all time, selling over four million copies. McVie joined the band in 1969 after marrying bandmate John McVie. But after seven years their relationship broke up. Despite the separation, their professional relationship remained. In 1998, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
McVeigh also released his own solo album with the band. Her two albums ‘Christine Perfect’ and ‘Christine McVie’ released in 1970 and 1984 created a response. McVeigh split from the band in the late 1990s. However, after breaking this temporary retirement, he returned again in 2014 after about 15 years.
In an interview with The Guardian this year about taking a break from the band, McVie said, ‘I wanted to wander the village streets without a partner. Then I moved to Kent. It was so nice to walk down the street alone, no one would recognize me. But at some point I started missing everyone. Then I called Mick and said, what if I come back again?’
McVeigh was one of the pop music figures of the seventies and eighties. As well as singing, he had a great writing hand. Stories of love and relationships came up in his writings.
McVeigh’s death casts a pall over world music. Eagles, including Harry Styles, have expressed their condolences.
