• It seems the only way that Fleetwood Mac will be appearing with Lindsey Buckingham again is within the walls of a courthouse. After Buckingham filed suit for what amounts to wrongful termination from the band -- along with an extensive Rolling Stone interview explaining why, the band has given the briefest of responses to Buckingham's allegations. An official statement from Fleetwood Mac spokesperson Kristen Foster states only: "Fleetwood Mac looks forward to their day in court. The band has retained Dan Petrocelli to handle the case"
  • On October 9th, Lindsey Buckingham filed suit against the members of Fleetwood Mac -- Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, and Christine McVie -- "for breach of fiduciary duty, breach of oral contract and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage," among other charges.
  • According to the filing, "a deal was made with Live Nation that would earn each member of the group an estimated $12 million to $14 million for 60 concerts."
  • Buckingham's complaint against the band also states: "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, the Defendants 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."
