Lindsey Buckingham sued Fleetwood Mac for kicking him out of band

adminOctober 13, 2018




Lindsey Buckingham sang "Go Your Own Way" with Fleetwood Mac, but she's not happy that the band really did it.

Buckingham announced on Friday that it is suing his former bandmates for throwing him out of the group's new tour, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The rock legend said his manager told him in January that the band had decided to tour without him, but none of his bandmates bothered to explain why.

Buckingham wants his bandmates Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie and John McVie to pay him their full share of the tour's income because he still wants to be in the group.

Buckingham, 69, said he agreed to do 60 concerts with the band, but asked if the dates of 2018 could be postponed for a solo tour.

According to the people, when the request was rejected, Buckingham rescheduled the dates alone to be told that it was over.

He has been replaced on tour by former Tom Petty guitarist and Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Neil Finn of Crowded House.

Buckingham speculated with Rolling Stone earlier this week that Stevie Nicks was behind the completion.

Two nights before he was canned from Fleetwood Mac, Buckingham and the others showed up in New York at a charity show by MusiCares in honor of the group.

"We rehearsed for two days, and everything was great," Buckingham said. "We got along very well".

However, Buckingham said the group's manager, Irving Azoff, then told him that Nicks was angry because he had a problem with the band that was walking on stage with his song "Rhiannon", and that He "smiled" during his speech of thanks.

"It was not about it being 'Rhiannon,'" Buckingham said. "It simply undermined the impact of our entry. That's me being very specific about the right and wrong way to do something. "

Neither confirmed nor denied the smile.

"The irony is that we have this joke that Stevie, when he speaks, is prolonged," says Buckingham. "I may or may not have smiled, but I look over and Christine and Mick are waltzing behind her like a joke."

Fleetwood Mac publicist Kristen Foster said in a statement Friday that the band denies all of Buckingham's allegations.

"Fleetwood Mac strongly discusses the allegations presented in Mr. Buckingham's complaint and waits for his day in court," said Foster. "The band has hired Dan Petrocelli to handle the case."
