Lindsey Buckingham Leaves Fleetwood Mac; Mike Campbell And Neil Finn Join The Group

Lindsey Buckingham’s tenure with Fleetwood Mac has apparently come to an end, and he has parted ways with the band 22 years after their classic lineup reunited.  After his second tenure with the band, he’ll be replaced on an upcoming tour by Mike Campbell of the Heartbreakers and Neil Finn of Crowded House. Rolling Stone is reporting that Buckingham was fired over a disagreement regarding the tour. “We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn into the Mac family,” the band said in a statement. “With Mike and Neil, we’ll be performing all the hits that the fans love, plus we’ll be surprising our audiences with some tracks from our historic catalog of songs. Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution. We look forward to honoring that spirit on this upcoming tour.” The statement concluded that “Lindsey Buckingham will not be performing with the band on this tour. The band wishes Lindsey all the best.”
