Fleetwood Mac has made its way into the music press headlines once again, as Lindsey Buckingham has revealed a new lawsuit against his former bandmates claiming breach of fiduciary duty, breach of oral contract and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage.
Buckingham was dismissed from the hit-making band in April 2018, as Fleetwood Mac were on the precipice of a major 2018-2019 reunion tour. Buckingham was later replaced by guitarists Mike Campbell and Neil Finn, and told Rolling Stone that he was fired from the band for his tensions with singer Stevie Nicks.
In documents acquired by US Weekly, Buckingham reveals that despite being officially ousted by the band’s manager, “not a single member of the band” made contact with him. They all “suddenly cut [him] off entirely.”
