Earlier this year, Fleetwood Mac fired guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, citing disagreements over the band's upcoming tour. Mike Campbell, formerly of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Crowded House’s Neil Finn stepped in to take Buckingham's place. In a recent Rolling Stone feature, the guitarist recalls the moment he was asked to leave and talks about life after, including his solo work.
“Am I heartbroken about not doing another tour with Fleetwood Mac? No,” he said. “because I can see that there are many other areas to look into.”
“The one thing that does bother me and breaks my heart is we spent 43 years always finding a way to rise above our personal differences and our difficulties to pursue and articulate a higher truth," he continued. "That is our legacy. That is what the songs are about. This is not the way you end something like this.”
