  • Lindsey Buckingham sues Fleetwood Mac after being axed from tour

As Buckingham told Rolling Stone, a few days after the show he received a phone call from manager Irving Azoff, who proceeded to list various issues Nicks had with his behavior that night, including his complaints about their intro music being Nicks' "Rhiannon" and that he may have "smirked" while she was giving her acceptance speech.

The decision to fire Buckingham and bring on Crowded House's Neil Finn and Tom Petty's right-hand man Mike Campbell to take his place earlier this year came as a huge surprise to practically everyone who thought that the different members of Fleetwood Mac had put their past differences behind them. In the new RS interview, however, Buckingham claims that Nicks specifically requested that he be fired. Is Stevie leaving the band, or am I getting kicked out?'" Buckingham recalled, only to be told that Nicks had given the band "an ultimatum: "Either you go or she's gonna go".

In his lawsuit, Buckingham does note that he asked the band to delay the tour until November so he could promote his own album - which Nicks and Mick Fleetwood have said was the deal-breaker - but that he then delayed his solo plans for them when they said no and struck a deal for a 60-date tour.

"I don't think there was ever anything that was just cause to be fired", he states. "We have all done things that were not constructive".

The group says Eugenie does not carry out royal duties and that weddings are personal, private occasions, not affairs of state. Eugenie is following tradition by not revealing who designed her wedding gown, but she has said it will be a British designer.

Buckingham and his wife, Kristen, go on to explain the hurt they've felt since the firing, including when Fleetwood Mac debuted their new lineup on Ellen last month.

Fleetwood Mac, which first formed in 1967, has been plagued by behind-the-scenes romantic and creative tensions among its members and a shifting line-up over the years.

Even though Buckingham still has connections to Fleetwood Mac, such as his niece's husband working as a drum tech with the band, and he has attempted to contact Mac co-founder and drummer Mick Fleetwood, Buckingham and his former bandmates have not talked since the MusiCares event.

In the suit, he says "After 43 years of camaraderie and friendship, not a single member of the Band called [me] to break the news" of his firing. No, because I can see that there are many other areas to look into. That is our legacy. This is not the way you end something like this.... "But I am not planning that anything will change from what it is now".
