No. It was Rocky Burnette (Billyís cousin).

RIP George.
He had links with all 5 of the Fleetwood Mac members.

I didn't recall seeing a FB post from him for a while. The last post on his page was 11 days ago, on Oct 17, with a link posted for Go Fund Me, to help with his cancer. RIP, George.

Wonder if any Mac members helped? Unfortunately, I'd be SHOCKED if they did.

There are a few anonymous pledges. Not much in the way of big donations though. I'd like to think they helped out privately.
To the best of my knowledge none of them have made a public comment on his passing yet, though I may be wrong.

It's really sad to hear the Go Fund Me didn't raise enough for him to have the necessary treatment. That's heartbreaking. I feel so lucky to live in a country with a national health service.

Its also really sad that Fleetwood Mac have still not passed comment on George's passing, to the best of my knowledge. I had hoped to read Stevie had dedicated Landslide at a concert but I think Stevie might be the one band member not to have much of a link with him.

Richard Dashut tweeted a nice comment.

Stevie recorded with him on the Kenny Loggins duet "Whenever I Call You Friend" (though she may have overdubbed her part separate from the recording of his).

Stevie also played a few impromptu (I believe) shows with The Zoo in the mid-80s.
