Lindsey Buckingham Calls Fleetwood Mac’s New Lineup A Cover Band

Lindsey Buckingham has described Fleetwood Mac‘s new lineup as a “cover band.”

However, he says he will play with his old group again for a “proper farewell tour.”

“Look, it’s Fleetwood Mac. Anything’s possible. Maybe they’ll get it out of their system,” he told Stereogum while discussing songs from his new Solo Anthology.

“If they ask me to come back, would I? Sure, because to me, I think the lack of a proper farewell tour, if that’s what we’re doing, that doesn’t undercut, like I say, the legacy that we have so carefully built as the five of us, which they’re not doing right now. I don’t know what they’re doing. It’s a cover band kind of deal, and Stevie [Nicks] may be enjoying that, and that’s fine. If she is happy doing that, there is no one outcome that I think is going to be okay,” he added.

Buckingham, the lead guitarist and vocalist of Fleetwood Mac, was fired from the band in April, and was replaced by Mike Campbell and Neil Finn.
