Following the death of musician and singer Christine McVie on November 30, 2022 at the age of 79, Mick Fleetwood, co-founder of the group, spoke about the future.
It was during the Grammy Awards ceremony that he spoke, just before paying him a beautiful tribute on stage: “At the moment, I think a line has been drawn in the sand with the loss of Chris,” he told the LA Times.
He still plans to perform live, but not necessarily with Fleetwood Mac. He adds: “I would say that we are done, but we have already said that in the past. Finally for the moment, it is unimaginable”.
He also clarified that the other remaining band members – past and present – like Stevie Nicks, Mike Campbell, Neil Finn et l’ex-member, Lindsey Buckinghamall have commitments elsewhere at the moment: “They’re all playing there… So I’m going to do the same, and find people to play with.”
He adds with humor, while he was on the red carpet of the Grammys: “Is there someone who would like to accompany me here?”
During the ceremony, Sheryl Crow, Mick Fleetwood et Bonnie Raitt performed together to pay tribute to Christine McVie by covering the classic “Songbird.”
This January 13, Mick Fleetwood shared the farewell speech to Christine McVie, which he had written for his funeral. This one took place in Malibu, Calif., on Jan. 9, with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham in attendance, reunited in honor of the musician’s life and legacy.
