Iconic Fleetwood Mac / Stevie Nicks Photographer Herbert W. Worthington III has passed away

Sad news!  Iconic Photographer Herbert W. Worthington II has passed away.

Mr. Worthington is responsible for many many iconic photos of Fleetwood Mac and of Stevie Nicks stretching all the way back to the early 70's. His photos of Stevie in particular are revered and loved to this day by fans within the Fleetwood Mac fan community. If you see a studio shot of Stevie in the late 70's or 80's it most likely was taken by Herbert... He seemingly was at her side every step of the way. In fact I think they were roommates at some point in the early days if I'm not mistaken.

Some of his album covers include the 1975 "Fleetwood Mac" album, "Rumours" and Stevie's first solo album cover "Bella Donna" among others.

Thank you Mr. Worthington for your work and for capturing a large part of this bands history!

My condolences to his family and to those that new him.
