According to a report in US Weekly, Lindsey Buckingham has sued Fleetwood Mac for firing him. In the suit, Buckingham says he first found out about it from his manager and not a single member of the band spoke to him directly about the decision. Buckingham admits he tried to get them to delay the tour so he could promote his solo album but apparently they weren't having it. He also claims he agreed to delay the release of the solo album but his bandmates suddenly cut him off entirely.
Buckingham has blamed Stevie Nicks as the driving force behind his dismissal. He said in an interview recently that Fleetwood Mac manager Irving Azoff gave him of a list of things that “Stevie took issue with” and told him, “Stevie never wants to be on a stage with you again.” DAYUM!
