Fleetwood Mac definitely won’t reunite with their former guitarist Lindsey Buckingham.
We are all used to drama when it comes to Fleetwood Mac. In 2018, the band fired Buckingham before they went on a massive North American tour. Buckingham later sued the band, writes Consequence of Sound, for "fiduciary duty, breach of oral contract and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage.“ The settlement was reached out of court in the same year.
In a recent interview for Rolling Stone, when asked about "any scenario where you’d play with Lindsey Buckingham again,“ Fleetwood firmly said „No“. He added, “Fleetwood Mac is a strange creature. We’re very, very committed to Neil and Mike, and that passed away a time ago when Lindsey left. And it’s not a point of conversation, so I have to say no. It’s a full drama of Fleetwood Mac, no doubt. His legacy is alive and well, and as it should be. A major, major part that will never be taken away, and never be down-spoken by any of us. Neil [Finn] and Mike [Campbell] have tremendous respect for Lindsey. The situation was no secret. We were not happy. It was not working, and we parted company. And that really is the all of it.”
The two ex band-mates have not spoken to each other since February 2019.
Fleetwood also excluded the possibility of the band breaking up. While they will hit pause on the long touring, they are not planning to stop any time soon.Image source
