Fleetwood Mac tour axe cost me millions of Bucks
FLEETWOOD Mac legend Lindsey Buckingham is suing the band after they fired him from a US tour.
He was axed in January and replaced with Tom Petty guitarist Mike Campbell and Neil Finn of Crowded House.
In court documents filed in Los Angeles, Buckingham claims he lost up to £10.5m as a result.
The star also claims the band refused to speak to him about the decision, despite their 43-year relationship.
“Not a single member of the band called Buckingham to break the news to him,” the court documents say.
“In fact, not a single member of Fleetwood Mac has returned any of Buckingham’s phone calls to provide him with an explanation for his purported expulsion from Fleetwood Mac.”
Buckingham joined Fleetwood Mac in 1975 with his then-girlfriend Stevie Nicks and steered the band through its most commercially successful era before leaving in 1987.
The 69-year-old rejoined in 1997 and performed with them until January.
