Following her death, bandmates have Stevie Nicks and Mick Fleetwood have penned tributes to Christine McVie.
“This is a day where my dear sweet Christine McVie has taken to flight.. and let us earthbound folks to listen with baited breath to the sounds of that ‘song bird’…reminding one and all that love is all around us to reach for and touch in this precious life that is gifted to us”, Fleetwood wrote.
“Part of my heart has flown away today..I will miss everything about you Christine McVie. Memories abound..they fly to me”.
Meanwhile Stevie Nicks hailed Christine as her “best friend in the whole world”.
“A few hours ago I was told that my best friend in the whole world since the first day of 1975, had passed away. I didn’t even know she was ill…until late Saturday night. I wanted to be in London; I wanted to get to London – but we were told to wait”, Nicks wrote.
“So, since Saturday, one song has been swirling around in my head, over and over and over. I thought I might possibly get to sing it to her, and so, I’m singing it to her now. I always knew I would need these words one day. (Written by the Ladies Haim). It’s all I can do now…”.
