Does anyone know how far in advance a band is told that it's going to win the music award? A month? Three months? A few weeks?

One thing's for sure: They should never have let him delay his solo album and tour if they knew they were going to fire him regardless.
Another thing is for sure. The idea that a Buckingham solo tour would ever postpone a Fleetwood Mac tour by anything more than a few months is ridiculous. Even now, as an ex-member, Lindsey isn't touring for more than five or six weeks, right? Five or six weeks is nothing in Fleetwood Mac time.

These claims that Nicks made that his solo tour would keep Fleetwood Mac hanging for six or eight months are asinine.
