Lindsey Buckingham sues Fleetwood Mac for kicking him out of band

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Lindsey Buckingham discusses his life after being fired from Fleetwood Mac, the band he joined in 1974 with then-partner Stevie Nicks, after a disagreement with the group's members prior to their reunion tour.

"Buckingham's suit claims that "(by) excluding Buckingham from participating in the 2018-2019 Fleetwood Mac tour in breach of their fiduciary duties of loyalty and good faith and fair dealing", and that Fleetwood Mac "intentionally acted to interfere with Buckingham's relationship with Live Nation and the prospective economic benefit he was to receive as a result of his participation in the tour".

In a lawsuit filed on Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Buckingham said the dispute stemmed from a clash between the planned 2018/19 Fleetwood Mac tour and Buckingham's wishes to play some solo dates.

Two nights before he was canned from Fleetwood Mac, Buckingham and the others performed in NY at a MusiCares benefit show honoring the group. Buckingham talks about the phone calls that led to his firing, along with his personal reaction to the news and his solo tour around the newly released collection of solo cuts, The Best of Lindsey Buckingham.

Buckingham was so convinced Nicks was quitting the band he sent an email to Fleetwood Mac founder Mick Fleetwood, insisting the band could go on without her but got no response.

Nicks apparently "took issue" with the prickly guitarist's behaviour during their performance, accusing him of smirking as she made her thank-you speech and having an outburst about introduction music, which was the band's studio recording of Rhiannon. "I remain deeply surprised and saddened, as this decision ends the lovely 43-year legacy we built together", Buckingham told EW in a statement.

"I'm looking forward to closure", Buckingham stated, "and will always remain proud of all that we created, and what that legacy represents".

The remaining members of Fleetwood Mac have since responded to Buckingham's lawsuit, claiming they never received the legal complaint. 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.

"I may or may not have smirked", he says, adding, "I look over and Christine and Mick are doing the waltz behind her as a joke".

However, he defended his supposed smirking, noting it was just part of a long-running joke between the group's members.

Buckingham's official departure from Fleetwood Mac came in April when the band announced Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Neil Finn of Crowded House were joining the Grammy-winning group.
