Christine Anne McVie 12 July 1943 – 30 November 2022 was an English musician and singer. She was principally known as a member of the band Fleetwood Mac, which she joined in 1970, as a singer and the band’s keyboardist.
She also released three solo albums.
Her lyrics focused on love and relationships.
Steve Leggett of AllMusic described her as an “unabashedly easy-on-the-ears singer/songwriter, and the prime mover behind some of Fleetwood Mac’s biggest hits”.
Eight songs written or co-written by her, including “Don’t Stop”, “Everywhere” and “Little Lies”, appeared on Fleetwood Mac’s 1988 Greatest Hits album.
In 1998, McVie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Fleetwood Mac, and received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.
The same year, after almost 30 years with the band, she opted to leave and lived in semi-retirement for nearly 15 years. She released a solo album in 2004.
In September 2013 she appeared on stage with Fleetwood Mac at the O2 Arena in London, before rejoining the band in 2014 prior to their On with the Show tour.
