The actual word Mick Fleetwood used was “unlikely”


By Jon Smith:

He added that the topic is not even “a point of conversation” with the band.  That pretty much ends the conversation.

Mick did an interview with Rolling Stone to promote the band’s upcoming tribute concert for Peter Green and discuss the future plans for Fleetwood Mac. When asked about Lindsay Buckingham, who was replaced by Neil Finn and Mike Campbell two years ago he didn’t really shy away from the fact that the band had absolutely no intention of hugging it out.

That’s not to ignore the role that Lindsay has played in the band’s legacy.  Mick was sure to add “His legacy is alive and well, and as it should be,”  adding,  “A major, major part that will never be taken away, and never be down-spoken by any of us. The situation was no secret. We were not happy. It was not working, and we parted company. And that really is all of it.”

It’s worth noting that Buckingham sued Fleetwood Mac for breach of contract and lost wages. The suit was settled out of court shortly before Buckingham suffered a serious heart attack.  I personally hope they work things out.  Come on man, get the band back together.
