Lindsey Buckingham Exits Fleetwood Mac

Lindsey Buckingham has left Fleetwood Mac, according to a report by Variety. The news first came from guitarist Billy Burnette, who tweeted on April 4, “Breaking news: Lindsey Buckingham is out but I’m not in.” The message was deleted a few hours after posting. According to a source, Buckingham did not exit voluntarily, rather, says the insider, “He was fired.” “We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of [Tom Petty guitarist] Mike Campbell and [Crowded House frontman] Neil Finn into the Mac family,” the band said in a statement. “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.” “Fleetwood Mac has always been about an amazing collection of songs that are performed with a unique blend of talents,” Mick Fleetwood added. “We jammed with Mike and Neil and the chemistry really worked and let the band realize that this is the right combination to go forward with in Fleetwood Mac style. We know we have something new, yet it’s got the unmistakable Mac sound.” Buckingham left Fleetwood Mac once before, in 1987. Copyright(c) 2018 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
