Fleetwood Mac drummer says band likely won’t perform together again after Christine McVie death
Fleetwood Mac may no longer perform together as a band after one of its longtime members, Christine McVie, died late last year.
At least that's what what the band's drummer told The LA Times on the red carpet for the Grammy Awards Sunday night.
"I think right now, I truly think the line in the sand has been drawn with the loss of Chris," drummer Mick Fleetwood said. "I’d say we’re done, but then we’ve all said that before. It’s sort of unthinkable right now."

During the Grammy's "In Memoriam" segment Sunday, Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt and Mick Fleetwood performed a tear-jerking rendition of "Songbird" to honor McVie, who died in late November at age 79.
Fleetwood said he plans to still perform in the future, but "not as Fleetwood Mac".
McVie, the British keyboard player and co-vocalist in Fleetwood Mac, was a band member for more than 50 years.

In June, McVie told Rolling Stone that she suffered from scoliosis and was trying to "get my back better and get myself into decent shape again."
As an integral part of Fleetwood Mac's lush sound, her mellifluous vocals painted many of their biggest hits, including "Don’t Stop," "You Make Loving Fun," "Hold Me," "Everywhere," "Little Lies" and the song that closed many of the band’s concerts, "Songbird."
