I know they've had members come and go over the years, but this is the first time that I can remember the word "Fired" being used.
 
He's replaced by Mike Campbell of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Neil Finn of Crowded House for the upcoming tour.

Stevie's probably saying "I waited 40 years to get even with that prick". Newsflash to Fleetwood Mac...Lindsey is the best one.

You don’t “fire” someone like Buckingham. Absurd. He’s one of those guys who is never in the conversation of great guitarists, but he’s pretty damn good. I’m glad I got to see them a few years ago with basically everyone back. It was an amazing show.

My understanding is that Christine is back for this tour.


It's funny - they just released an album last summer that was kick @$$. It was billed as Lindsay Buckingham/Christine McVie, but John and Mick were on every track. Why they released it that way, I don't know.

I saw them 3 years ago and it was Christine’s return tour to the band. She’s been with them ever since.

Mike Campbell is just as underrated as Lindsey is, as far as guitar work goes this is a wash. I think it finally came down to them being tired of his shit...it’s been a long time coming...
