Lindsey Buckingham has penned a tribute to his Fleetwood Mac bandmate Christine McVie, who died yesterday at age 79. Like Stevie Nicks, he shared a hand-written note that reads:

Christine McVie’s sudden passing is profoundly heartbreaking. Not only were she and I part of the magical family of Fleetwood Mac, to me Christine was a musical comrade, a friend, a soul mate, a sister. For over four decades, we helped each other create a beautiful body of work and a lasting legacy that continues to resonate today. I feel very lucky to have known her. Though she will be deeply missed, her spirit will live on through that body of work and that legacy.

See Lindsey's hand-written tribute below.
