Bandmate sues Fleetwood Mac
LINDSEY Buckingham is suing his former Fleetwood Mac bandmates after they fired him from their US tour.
In legal documents filed in Los Angeles, Buckingham, 69, said he was informed by his manager in January the band would “proceed with its upcoming and already organised 2018-19 concert tour without him”.
Former lead guitarist and singer Buckingham also claims no-one in the band called him to tell him of his sacking despite their 43-year relationship.
He is suing former bandmates Stevie Nicks, 70, Mick Fleetwood, 71, Christine McVie, 75 and John McVie, 72, for breach of oral contract.
Buckingham joined the group in 1975 and left in 1987. He rejoined in 1997 and performed with them until January.
