Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood reunite to remember their late bandmate Christine Mcvie in Malibu… two months after her passing

Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood braved the rain to celebrate the life of their late Fleetwood Mac bandmember Christine Mcvie on Monday night.

As the trio reunited two months after English musician’s death at 79 following a brief illness, the group looked somber while leaving Little Beach House Malibu.

For the occasion, Nicks, 74, wore a black jacket, matching pants, a light grey scarf and her voluminous blonde hair curly and free.

While exiting the posh oceanfront venue, the two-time Grammy winner clutched one red and one white rose. 

Fleetwood, 75, wore a fedora, black jacket, a white button-down with a popped collar and dark-wash pants to the memorial.

Buckingham, 73, cut a casual figure in a leather jacket, black V-neck t-shirt and jeans.

Attendees were seen leaving the gathering with tote bags with the late musician’s name on it.

The Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around singer, who dated Buckingham and Fleetwood, has been open about grieving her ‘best friend in the whole world since the first day of 1975.’

Upon learning the news, Nicks revealed in a handwritten note via Instagram that she did not know her close pal was ill until three days before her passing.

As she grappled with the immediate aftershock of Mcvie’s death, the performer wrote that she was singing the Haim song, Hallelujah.

‘See you on the other side, my love,’  she concluded in her heartfelt letter. 

McVie is best known for writing and singing some of their band’s biggest hits, including Don’t Stop, Little Lies, Say You Love Me, You Make Loving Fun and Songbird. 

Her genius and warm, soulful vocals helped to turn the one-time blues band into one of the most successful rock groups of all time, with more than 100million record sold worldwide. 

Talented: She joined Fleetwood Mac in 1971 as a permanent member, and the band achieved even greater popularity with the addition of Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham in the mid-1970s (pictured in 1990)

Many of her songs featured on Rumours, their best-known work from 1977 which chronicled the group’s drug use and affairs and is regularly cited as one of rock’s greatest albums.

Born Christine Perfect in the Lake District village of Bouth, Cumbria, in 1943, she grew up near Birmingham. She studied at art school and qualified as an art teacher – but instead became one of the few women involved in the British blues boom of the late 1960s, joining a band called Chicken Shack and also releasing a solo album. She married Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie in 1968 and by 1970 was an integral part of Fleetwood Mac.

Their British-American rock band was founded in London in 1967 and sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the most successful groups in history. Their best-known songs include Dreams, Go Your Own Way and Everywhere.
