After reportedly experiencing a musical disagreement regarding their upcoming tour…Fleetwood Mac have fired Lindsey Buckingham!
The band issued a statement saying:
“Lindsey Buckingham will not be performing with the band on this tour. The band wishes Lindsey all the best.”
Lindsey and Mick apparently had a disagreement over the band’s upcoming tour and the band has announced that Mike Campbell of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Neil Finn of Crowded House will replace him.
“We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn into the Mac family. With Mike and Neil, we’ll be performing all the hits that the fans love, plus we’ll be surprising our audiences with some tracks from our historic catalogue of songs. Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution. We look forward to honoring that spirit on this upcoming tour.”
Lindsey Buckingham joined Fleetwood Mac in 1974. He’s been the bands lead guitarist since then and has written some of their biggest hits including- “Go Your Own Way,” “Second Hand News” and “Tusk.”
