Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham Sues Band for Cutting Him from Tour

12 October 2018

Subsequently, Lindsay was replaced by Mike Campbell from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Neil Finn of Crowded House, and then the new version of the Fleetwood Mac headed out on an American tour in April.

The other band members "intentionally acted to interfere with Buckingham's relationship with (concert promoters) Live Nation and the prospective economic benefit he was to receive as a result of his participation in the tour", the lawsuit said.

"(I said), 'This feels amusing.

Lindsey Buckingham has finally revealed the details of why he was sacked from Fleetwood Mac. Is Stevie leaving the band, or am I getting kicked out?'" Buckingham recalled, only to be told that Nicks had given the band "an ultimatum: "Either you go or she's gonna go". In the past, Mick Fleetwood and Stevie Nicks have cited a disagreement about tour dates and a comprehensive sense of dissatisfaction in the band as their primary rationales for deciding to fire Buckingham, one of the primary creative forces in the group.

Buckingham took this to mean she was quitting Fleetwood Mac, so he emailed Fleetwood to discuss the band's future, but didn't hear back.

"If there is a way to work this through, I believe we must try".

"In a cruel final twist, having falsely claimed that Buckingham's request to delay the start of the tour from August to November was the reason for his expulsion", they wrote, "the band announced it would delay the start of the Fleetwood Mac tour until October to accommodate the addition of Buckingham's replacements".

A Fleetwood Mac spokesperson added: "It's impossible for the band to offer comment on a legal complaint they have not seen". I think what you would say is that there were factions within the band that had lost their perspective'.

Now, in a new interview with Rolling Stone, Lindsey Buckingham has placed the blame on Stevie Nicks, noting that she's responsible for hit firing from the group.

The guitarist and singer, who learned he'd been voted out of the group in a phone call with Mac manager Irving Azoff, insists he is still owed money from the band - and now he's going to court to get it. It's fairly standard legal procedure to service the complaint to the parties involved, something that neither Mr. Buckingham nor his legal counsel have done. They continue, "Which makes one wonder what the true motivations are when servicing press first with a legal complaint before the parties in disputes".
