Nicks shared an emotional handwritten note mourning her fellow Fleetwood Mac member, who died at 79.

Nicks, 74, posted a handwritten note on social media, honoring her friend and musical collaborator of several decades. Nicks wrote, “A few hours back I was informed that my best friend in all of 1975 had died.” “I didn’t know she was ill… until Saturday night. “

Nicks said that since learning of McVie’s illness, she’d been thinking about the lyrics to Haim’s song “Hallelujah,” which grieves the death of a close friend. She explained that she thought she might be able to sing it to her and so, she’s singing it to him now.

” See you on the other side my love,” Nicks said. “Don’t forget about me. “

McVie’s family said that the legendary singer-songwriter had died on Wednesday after a “short illness”. McVie was a key member of Fleetwood Mac and joined the band in 1970 when she married John McVie. In the mid-’70s, Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joined the lineup, kicking off a run of smash hit albums like their 1975 self-titled album, 1977’s Rumours, and 1979’s Tusk. McVie was a prolific songwriter, writing hits such as “Everywhere,” “Don’t Stop,” and “Little Lies.” Fleetwood Mac members recalled McVie’s talent and uniqueness in a joint statement. ” McVie’s longtime bandmate Mick Fleetwood also posted a tribute to McVie via social media. He wrote, “Particular of my heart has flown away Today. ” “This is a day when my dear sweet Friend Christine McVie took to flight,” he wrote. “And left us earthbound folks listening with bated breath the sounds of that’song bird ‘… reminding us all that love is all around and to reach for and touch this precious life that has been given to us.” ”
