Mick Fleetwood admitted that he finds it difficult to imagine Fleetwood Mac carrying on after Christine McVie’s passing.
He said during an interview at the Grammys:
“I think right now, I truly think the line in the sand has been drawn with the loss of Chris. I’d say we’re done, but then we’ve all said that before. It’s sort of unthinkable right now.”
The other band members, according to Fleetwood are still busy with their individual tours and live performance responsibilities. The drummer explained:
“They all get out and play, so I’m gonna be doing the same thing, finding people to play with.”
The final Fleetwood Mac performance was held on November 20, 2019, at Oracle Park in San Francisco. This turned out to be McVie’s final performance with the band. She joined Fleetwood and a star-studded group of musicians for a tribute to original Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green three months later, which would be her last public performance.
McVie’s death in November following a “short illness” left her friends and bandmates saddened. Fleetwood wrote at the time:
“This is a day where my dear sweet Friend Christine McVie has taken to flight… and left us earthbound folks to listen with bated 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.
“Part of my heart has flown away today. I will miss everything about you Christine McVie. Memories abound.. they fly to me.”
