Star: I had to Go My Own Way
Seventies guitar hero Lindsey Buckingham has described his departure from Fleetwood Mac as “not my doing or my choice”.
The band announced in April that they would tour without the musician, who wrote and sang on some of their biggest hits, including Go Your Own Way and Tusk.
Buckingham had been a member since he joined the group in 1974 with his then-girlfriend Stevie Nicks.
During a show, Buckingham was filmed speaking about his firing.
He said: “For me, personally, probably some of you know that for the last three months I have sadly taken leave of my band of 43 years, Fleetwood Mac.
“This was not something that was really my doing or my choice.”
