Lind­sey on Mac at­tack

Geelong Advertiser - - WORLD -

GUI­TARIST Lind­sey Buck­ing­ham has sued his for­mer Fleet­wood Mac band­mates, ac­cus­ing them of breach of con­tract for cut­ting him out of their lu­cra­tive North Amer­i­can tour and the mil­lions of dol­lars he would have earned from it.

In a law­suit filed on Tues­day in Los An­ge­les Su­pe­rior Court, the 69-year-old Buck­ing­ham said the dis­pute stemmed from a clash be­tween the planned 2018-19 Fleet­wood Mac tour and Buck­ing­ham’s wishes to play some solo dates.

The law­suit claimed that each mem­ber of the group would have earned be­tween $US12 mil­lion and $US14 mil­lion for the 50-city tour, which kicked off last week.

The other band mem­bers “in­ten­tion­ally acted to in­ter­fere with Buck­ing­ham’s re­la­tion­ship with (con­cert pro­mot­ers) Live Na­tion and the prospec­tive eco­nomic ben­e­fit he was to re­ceive as a re­sult of his par­tic­i­pa­tion in the tour”, the law­suit said.
