Some big changes are coming to Fleetwood Mac! Rolling Stone confirmed that Lindsey Buckingham has been removed from the band. Buckingham joined the band in 1974 with Stevie Nicks.
Mike Campbell of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Neil Finn of Crowded House will be replacing Buckingham.
Fleetwood Mac released a statement about the transition, "We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn into the Mac family. With Mike and Neil, we’ll be performing all the hits that the fans love, plus we’ll be surprising our audiences with some tracks from our historic catalogue of songs. Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution. We look forward to honoring that spirit on this upcoming tour."
"Fleetwood Mac has always been about an amazing collection of songs that are performed with a unique blend of talents ... We jammed with Mike and Neil and the chemistry really worked and let the band realize that this is the right combination to go forward with in Fleetwood Mac style. We know we have something new, yet it’s got the unmistakable Mac sound," said Mick Fleetwood.
I'm interested to see how this change affects the band!
