And It Continues…
In an interview with MOJO magazine, Lindsey Buckingham was asked about the possibility of reuniting with Fleetwood Mac.
“Of course. It would be so appropriate for the five of us to go out again, even if you want to call it a farewell tour,” he said. “I didn’t see the last shows but I heard it it was a little generic, like a covers band.”
“That’s fine, because there’s always a fraction of people who are coming for the brand, per se, and aren’t going to differentiate in terms of members as long as Stevie is up there,” he continued. “But it would be great for us to share it one last time. I know Mick [Fleetwood] and Christine would love that to happen. Wait and see.”
This interview took place before Stevie Nicks sent a statement to Rolling Stone to finally explain her side regarding Buckingham’s dismissal in 2018.
“I did the record with Christine McVie [Lindsey Buckingham Christine McVie 2017] and wanted to go straight on to this. Fleetwood Mac wanted to tour,” Buckingham said. “So we ended up going in a direction I didn’t see coming [Buckingham was fired]. Stevie [Nicks] orchestrated that, and the others were stuck in the middle.”
Buckingham called his solo record “more esoteric” compared to a Fleetwood Mac album.
