5 Reasons Fleetwood Mac Isn’t The Same Without Lindsey Buckingham

He’s The Real Deal

Fleetwood Mac took us on a roller coaster of emotions as they announced a reunion tour earlier this year only to find out they fired Lindsey Buckingham and replaced him with two other guitarists. A few months later, Lindsey made his move by suing the band. And it only got messier.

We love the group and their catalog filled with epic masterpieces. But we have to admit it, it just ain’t the same without Lindsey. Here are the reasons why:

5. It took two guitarists to replace Lindsey.

Let that sink in.

Fleetwood Mac invited Mike Campbell, the former guitarist of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Crowded House frontman Neil Finn to take on the part of Lindsey. If that doesn’t speak volumes about the guy’s mad guitar skills, we don’t know what else does.

4. He’s criminally underrated as an axeslinger.

His work in “The Chain” is more than enough to propel him to guitar god status. He can easily hold his own against any other guitarist which begs the question – why is his talent still being overlooked?

3. He wrote several classic hits which further solidified Fleetwood Mac’s spot in the rock ‘n roll pantheon.

Without Lindsey, there’d be no “Go Your Own Way,” “Tusk,” and of course “The Chain.” And let’s face it, Stevie Nicks wouldn’t be able to come up with her breakup songs without Lindsey.

2. His contribution to “Rumours” remains invaluable.

Putting all drama aside, we cannot imagine how that album would become their best release if Lindsey wasn’t part of it. He was the other half who helped save Fleetwood Mac from spiraling downwards. He worked hard with the arrangement and recording of the songs. His guitar even had to be restrung every 20 minutes when they recorded “Never Going Back Again.”

1. He’s a big deal.

One of the best things Lindsey has done for Fleetwood Mac is bringing along then-girlfriend Stevie Nicks. And we all know how that became a game-changer for everyone else in the band. You can’t put him out of the equation because he started the ball rolling in so many ways.

There are still issues between him and Fleetwood Mac but one thing’s for sure – he deserves better.

I couldn't have said it better. 100% true. ALL OF IT

Lindsey was the driving force to keep the band creative, fresh, and new. To keep FM from becoming a nostalgia act.

No one plays the guitar quite like Lindsey Buckingham, especially within the confines of FM.

Lindsey added to the melodrama of FM. The Lindsey/Stevie dynamic is gone.

Lindsey was loyal to the band. He was willing to stay to the end through thick and thin. His heart was with FM.

The history he shared with FM can't ever be replicated and the continuation of that is now over. Could there ever be a better chapter of FM without him?
NO! Everything else is now anticlimactic.


That's five I came up with off the top of my head.

For Lindsey not to call the Buckingham Mc Vie album “Fleetwood Mac” because Stevie didn’t want to participate speaks volumes about him. He could have pushed Mick into calling it Fleetwood Mac.

So much better than this article

To me, there is only one reason. Lindsey Buckingham is not there.

And it applies with any member. Fleetwood Mac wasn't the same without Christine after The Dance. And it would be the same if Mick or John or Stevie were not there.
