Very little has been said publicly about the split between Fleetwood Mac and Lindsey Buckingham, but Buckingham broke his silence on the matter over the weekend.
Buckingham was performing at a campaign fundraiser for California Democratic congressional candidate Mike Levin, and during his set, he touched on his exit saying it “was not something that was really my doing or my choice.”
He would go on to say that “there were factions within the band that had lost their perspective.” After that line of dialogue, someone in the crowd then yelled, “F*ck Stevie Nicks!”, which Buckingham responded, “Well, it doesn’t really matter. The point is that they’d lost their perspective, and what that did was to harm – and this is the only thing I’m really sad about, the rest of it becomes an opportunity – it harmed the 43-year legacy that we had worked so hard to build.”
Wow…with a diplomatic answer like that, you would’ve thought Lindsey was running for office!
