Lindsey Buckingham sues Fleetwood Mac after being axed from tour

Lindsey Buckingham speaks out on Fleetwood Mac ouster 'This is not the way you end something like this'

Two days after the band performed at a Grammy MusicCares event in NY in January, Buckingham discovered he was out of the band, with the complaint stating that by excluding him from taking part in the 2018/2019 Fleetwood Mac tour, the band were "in breach of their fiduciary duties of loyalty and good faith and fair dealing".

For their part, Fleetwood Mac contend Buckingham was replaced because he wouldn't commit to touring with the band in 2018.

Lindsey Buckingham is done waiting for Fleetwood Mac to cough up money he says he's owed.so the former lead guitarist for the group is suing his old bandmates for dropping him and, more importantly, not paying him.

The complaint also states that "After 43 years of camaraderie and friendship, not a single member of the band called Buckingham to break the news to him".

Lindsey Buckingham has finally revealed the details of why he was sacked from Fleetwood Mac.

When the others refused, Buckingham said he agreed to delay his album by a year and stick to their schedule, although he explored the possibility of playing smaller club shows on Fleetwood Mac's days off.

Her gripes reportedly included Buckingham's outburst over the band's intro music, and that he smirked during Nicks' thank you speech at the MusiCares ceremony.

Regarding time off to pursue solo work, Buckingham said he had asked for "three or four months extra" to go on a solo tour but was met by "stonewalling" and left the meeting.

Handed a big early lead, Nathan Eovaldi shut down his former team during New York's most lopsided defeat in 396 postseason games. His suit claims he had been passed over for assignments because of a feud with Joe Torre, who is MLB's chief baseball officer.

The court documents include a copy of an email he sent to his co-stars in February, urging a reconciliation. I think what you would say is that there were factions within the band that had lost their perspective'. "We have all done things that were not constructive".

"Less than a week after having shared a stage at Musicares, the other members of Fleetwood Mac had suddenly cut Buckingham off entirely", the lawsuit said. It's fairly standard legal procedure to service the complaint to the parties involved, something that neither Mr. Buckingham nor his legal counsel have done.

"Which makes one wonder what the true motivations are when servicing press first with a legal complaint before the parties in dispute", the statement added.

The suit comes a day after the publication of a fiery new Rolling Stone interview with Buckingham, in which he claims his former lover, Stevie Nicks, was behind his exit from Fleetwood Mac.

A couple of days later he called Azoff, who told him Nicks gave the band an ultimatum: 'either Lindsey goes or I go'.

In April, drummer Mick Fleetwood - who co-founded the group in 1967 with original guitarist Peter Green - told the same magazine the band had hit an "impasse" with Buckingham.
