Nicks, who dated Lindsey Buckingham and Mick Fleetwood, was open about grieving her “best friend in all the world since day one of 1975”.

Upon hearing the news, Nicks revealed in a handwritten note via Instagram that she didn’t know her close friend was sick until three days before his death.

As she struggled with the immediate aftershock of Mcvie’s death, the artist wrote that she was singing Haim’s 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 his band’s biggest hits, including Don’t Stop, Little Lies, Say You Love Me, You Make Loving Fun and Songbird.

She attended 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 an album ground. She married Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie in 1968 and by 1970 she was an integral part of Fleetwood Mac.

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