Mick Fleetwood was seen in public for the first time since paying heartbreaking tribute to bandmate Christine McVie following her death.
The musician died aged 79 on November 30 in England, with bandmates Fleetwood and Stevie Nicks sharing messages mourning her death after the news emerged.
Legendary musician Fleetwood was seen getting into a car earlier this week, dressed for the dreary England weather in a black waistcoat, patterned T-shirt and fedora hat, as well as a big black coat he took on and off, and a red scarf.
At the time of McVie’s death, Fleetwood shared a personal message to his ‘dear sweet friend’, uploading an image that contained the typed out words of sorrow and love for McVie.
He reminded his followers that she would have wanted them to know ‘love is all around us to reach for’.
Fleetwood, 75, wrote: ‘This is a day where my dear sweet Christine McVie has taken to flight.. and let us earthbound folks to listen with baited 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.’

A statement from the band was released on the social media networking site and spoke of the ‘one-of-a-kind’ nature of their former member.
The words posted against a white background read: ‘There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie.
‘She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure. She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life.
‘We were so lucky to have a life with her. Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.’
In a heartbreaking tribute, Nicks described the late singer as ‘my best friend in the whole world’ and posted heartfelt words on her social media channels on hearing the tragic news.
‘A few hours ago I was told that my best friend in the whole world since the first day of 1975, had passed away’, she wrote in a photo of a handwritten letter that was uploaded to Instagram.
‘I didn’t even know she was ill … until late Saturday night. I wanted to be in London, I wanted to get to London – but we were told to wait.
‘So, since Saturday, one song has been swirling around my head, over and over and over. I thought I might possibly get to sing it to her, and so I’m singing it to her now.
‘I always knew I would need these words one day…It’s all I can do now.’
Within the same note, Stevie then shared the lyrics to the song Hallelujah by Haim adding: ‘See you on the other side my love.
‘Don’t forget me. Always, Stevie.’
