Lindsey Buckingham sues Fleetwood Mac over his firing from the band

Fleetwood Mac Lindsey Buckingham Opens Up About Fleetwood Mac Firing
Guillermo Jimenez | 12 October, 2018, 15:10

The decision to fire Buckingham and bring on Crowded House's Neil Finn and Tom Petty's right-hand man Mike Campbell to take his place earlier this year came as a huge surprise to practically everyone who thought that the different members of Fleetwood Mac had put their past differences behind them.

He is now reportedly suing the band for 'breach of fiduciary duty, breach of oral contract and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage'.

A day after Lindsey Buckingham revealed that Stevie Nicks allegedly had him fired from Fleetwood Mac over the phone back in January, he's now suing the band for kicking him out.

Lindsey Buckingham has finally revealed the details of why he was sacked from Fleetwood Mac.

They said they singled out this type of natural disaster because climate change is expected to make these storms more frequent and more intense.

It was reported that the guitarist and singer was asked to leave the band because he couldn't commit to a touring schedule, but Buckingham insists he was given his marching orders because Nicks could no longer share a stage with him.

Buckingham claims the group had bristled at his request to push the start of the tour from August to November so he could promote a solo album, and so he put his personal plans on pause so he could make the tour happen.

When the others refused, Buckingham said he agreed to delay his album by a year and stick to their schedule, although he explored the possibility of playing smaller club shows on Fleetwood Mac's days off. Azoff confirmed it was he who was "getting ousted" after Nicks had given the band "an ultimatum" and forced them to choose between him or her. "I love you no matter what".

"If there is a way to work this through, I believe we must try".

Reps for Fleetwood Mac tell RS that Buckingham never served legal papers to any of the band members, so "it's impossible for the band to offer comment on a legal complaint they have not seen". 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.

"Last January, Fleetwood Mac made the decision to continue to tour without me", Buckingham said in a statement that he gave to Rolling Stone after the news about the suit broke.

Buckingham then claims he discovered through Fleetwood Mac manager Irving Azoff that the group members were planning "to tour without him" and "suddenly cut [him] off entirely", adding that "not a single member of the band" spoke to him about the decision.

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online and Us Weekly, Buckingham claims the firing cost him between $12 to $14million.
