Default Rumours of Lindsey leaving the band?

https://www.facebook.com/billyburnet...37763062920055

From Billy Burnette's Facebook page:

"Breaking news: Lindsey Buckingham is out!
New line up to be announced soon and I'm not in it????? A little pissed off but I'll get over it. Good luck FLEETWOOD MAC
It's all in the book www.billyburnette.net/store"

Some people are saying it's true and that Mike Campbell could replace Lindsey in the band (I did see a comment about this on Instagram last week, but I didn't believe it); others are saying it's just a reference to 1987 and he's trying to drum up interest in his new book.

What does everyone think about this?

The fact that Billboard hasn't jumped on this leads me to question it!

I came back here wondering the same thing, I’m skeptical for now.

If its not true, you can imagine the backlash against Billy.
I was thinking April fool but it was posted today. I know Billy tells tales but to announce this is pretty crazy so I am a bit concerned.

That would be totally crazy, but I wouldn't be surprised either. The drama in this band never ends. I wonder how it will all play out.

Who says Lindsey’s leaving, if it turns out this is true?

Maybe this is a way for people to check out his book, like that's what he was thinking way back when he first heard about LB leaving /before he was contacted about joining the band. His post has a link to the book....

I don't do Facebook but this is weird: I was able to see his post just a few minutes ago on my android phone and MacBook. Now I can't see his post on either-says I have to log in. Was it blocked or taken down?

Was he drunk? I cant believe he would do such a thing.
I kept looking for LB trending on any yahoo or google reports.

This sounds to me like Mr Burnette trying to drum up a bit of interest in his book. I think the most likely scenario is that it refers to 1987, and Billy's feelings at the time. Has anyone here read his book and could look it up?

I sent a message to him on instagram asking to clarify. Doubtful I will get a response, If I do I will let folks know.

I'd be shocked if it were true. There's nothing to gain and everything to lose if he does.

He, like the rest of them, welcomes the money. And it finances his solo work.

Also, it would be ironic, considering he gave Christine an ultimatum ("you can't leave again") before returning.

You're assuming he would have quit.
