It's been a year since Christine McVie died, and Mick Fleetwood took to X (formerly Twitter) to commemorate the sad anniversary.

“Dear Chris, a year ago today you flew away, and memories come flooding back ❤️ Too many to mention!" he wrote alongside a photo of the pair. "I miss you .. Fleetwood Mac misses you… along with so many that loved your music 🎼❤️ Always love, Mick Fleetwood.”

The Fleetwood Mac star died on November 30, 2022. Her official cause of death was a stroke, but she had also been suffering from "an aggressive form of cancer." See Mick's tribute below.

Stevie Nicks recently opened up about the potential of a Fleetwood Mac reunion following McVie's death. “When Christine died, I felt like you can’t replace her,” she said. “Without her, what is it? You know what I mean? She was like my soul mate, my musical soul mate, and my best friend that I spent more time with than any of my other best friends outside of Fleetwood Mac. Christine was my best friend.”

She also mentioned again how Taylor Swift's "You're On Your Own Kid" has helped her grieve, saying she and McVie were "on our own" in Fleetwood Mac. “We protected each other,” Nicks said. “Who am I going to look over to on the right and have them not be there behind that Hammond organ? When she died, I figured we really can’t go any further with this. There’s no reason to.”

A reunion would also be hard, logistically, as Nicks explained they'd have to totally change their setlist. “And her songs, you take out all of those songs,” she said. “Christine was the pop star. She wrote all those really super pop hits. None of the rest of us could write those songs. What would happen is we’d have to take the songs out, like we did when she actually retired for 18 years. We couldn’t re-create those songs. So we became a much more hard-rock band.”

Mick shared a similar sentiment to Nicks, stating he didn't think the band would ever reunite without McVie.
