Axed Buck­ing­ham goes on a Mac at­tack

The Courier-Mail - - NEWS -

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

Buck­ing­ham was dropped from the band, which had hits such as Don’t Stop non, this year.

In a law­suit filed in Los An­ge­les Su­pe­rior Court, the 69-year-old says the dis­pute stemmed from a clash be­tween the 2018-19 Mac tour and his wish to play solo dates.

The law­suit claims each group mem­ber would have and Rhian- earned up to $US14 mil­lion ($20 mil­lion) for the tour, which be­gan last week.

The band mem­bers “in­ten­tion­ally acted to in­ter­fere with Buck­ing­ham’s re­la­tion­ship with (concert pro­mot­ers) Live Na­tion and the eco­nomic ben­e­fit he would re­ceive as a re­sult of the tour,” the law­suit says.
