Christine McVie died on Wednesday November 30. According to a statement made by McVie’s family on Facebook, she suffered only a short illness before dying “peacefully” surrounded by her family. Her sister-in-arms Stevie Nicks couldn’t make it in time and left a loving tribute on social media. But titans of the music industry loved McVie, too — for his voice, his songwriting ability, and even for the uproar his band Fleetwood Mac endured during its heyday in the 70s and 80s. The Drive by Truckers noted McVie’s considerable number of hits, and that despite this, she was still sleeping as a member of Fleetwood Mac. Even former President Bill Clinton expressed his love for McVie, who wrote his 1992 campaign song “Don’t Stop.” He tweeted “I am grateful to Christine & Fleetwood Mac for entrusting us with such a meaningful song. I will miss it.” McVie has been remembered on social media with the likes of Sheryl Crow, Marc Maron, Duran Duran’s John Taylor, and many more.

This is a developing story.
