Mick Fleetwood & Lindsey Buckingham reconnects over Peter Green's death

music news 15/10/2020

Mick Fleetwood has said that he reconnected with ex-Fleetwood Mac guitarist, Lindsey Buckingham over the death of ex-member Peter Green.

Green has passed away in July, which led to a phone call between Fleetwood and Buckingham.

The call helped mend the relationship after Buckingham was abruptly fired in 2018. According to Fleetwood, Buckingham told him, 'I know you're really sad, and of course, I was."

"And that's what reconnected me and Lindsey. We had the greatest talk. It was like we'd just spoken five minutes ago," he told Page Six.

"The disconnect happened, and there were emotions that were somewhat not removable, and there are personal things within the band and Lindsey's world," Fleetwood explained. "All I can say is … Lindsey Buckingham and the work he has done with the band is never going to go away, and we have a functioning band with the changes that we made. You know, time heals and it was lovely to be able to talk with him."

When asked upon whether the reconnection meant that Buckingham could potentially return to the band some day, Fleetwood said he "had no idea".

Stevie Nicks, who was the main catalyst behind Buckingham's sudden dismissal recently revealed that she wrote him a letter after hearing about his heart attack.
