The English musician Christine McVie, whose smokey vocals and romantic lyrics helped Fleetwood Mac become a global phenomenon, died Wednesday, the band and her family confirmed on social media. She was 79.
“There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie,” the group tweeted on Wednesday afternoon. “She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure.
McVie’s family posted on Instagram saying she “passed away peacefully” surrounded by loved ones at a hospital after a “short illness.”
McVie was previously married to John McVie, bass guitarist for Fleetwood Mac. Part of the inspiration for the band’s immensely successful 1977 album “Rumours” came from the stress in their relationship.
Although John and Christine McVie’s marriage ended in divorce in 1978, the two remained friends and continued to work together in the band, releasing classic albums like “Tusk” (1979) and “Mirage” (1981). (1982).
She remarried in 1986, to Eduardo “Eddy” Quintela, and they were together until 2003.
McVie got two Grammy Awards out of a total of seven nominations, and the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers, and Authors honored her for a lifetime of work in 2014.
