Christine McVie, the singer, songwriter and keyboardist who became the biggest hitmaker for Fleetwood Mac, died on Wednesday, November 30th, 2022. She was 79. In just half an hour, she wrote one of the band’s most beloved songs, “Songbird,” a sensitive ballad that for years served as the band’s closing encore in concert. In 2019, the band’s leader, Mick Fleetwood, said that “Songbird” is the piece he wanted played at his funeral, “to send me off fluttering.”
