Lindsey Buckingham, who was fired from Fleetwood Max in 2018, has said he doesn’t miss being in the band. He was reportedly fired as a result of a disagreement with Stevie Nicks, and the band created a new lineup featuring Mike Campbell and Neil Finn, going on to launch a world tour.
Buckingham started focusing on his solo anthology and tour instead, and a lawsuit was eventually settled between the parties.
In response to a fan question on Twitter, Buckingham wrote: “I can’t say that I ‘miss’ being in Fleetwood Mac,” Buckingham wrote in response to a fan question on Twitter, “as I’ve been concentrating on fulfilling my own plans that were already in the works before the split happened. So, in a sense, the situation is still too new to miss … especially since I don’t have much regard for the way the band is presenting itself now.”
“What I’m sad about is the split completely dishonors the beautiful 43-year legacy we built together, one that was always about rising about our difficulties in order to pursue a higher truth.”
Buckingham confirmed that the only member he had heard from was Christine McVie: “Christine said she missed me very much, that FM wasn’t complete without me. [She] said she felt that Stevie was very likely regretting having given the rest of the band the ultimatum that forced my departure. Perhaps wishful thinking on Christine’s part. In any case, it was great to hear from her, and I do hope we work together again down the line.”
