Lindsey Buckingham on Fleetwood Mac Firing: 'They'd Lost Their Perspective'

"This was not something that was really my doing or my choice," guitarist says of exit from band

Lindsey Buckingham spoke about his firing from Fleetwood Mac for the first time when the guitarist performed Friday night at a California fundraiser.

Lindsey Buckingham spoke about his firing from Fleetwood Mac for the first time when the guitarist performed Friday night at a California campaign fundraiser.

"It's been an interesting time on a lot of levels," Buckingham said at the fundraiser supporting Democratic congressional candidate Mike Levin (via Jeremy Roberts).

"For me, personally, probably some of you know that for the last three months I have sadly taken leave of my band of 43 years, Fleetwood Mac. This was not something that was really my doing or my choice."

"I think what you would say is that there were factions within the band that had lost their perspective," Buckingham continued. "The point is that they'd lost their perspective. What that did was to harm and this is the only thing I'm really sad about, the rest of it becomes an opportunity it harmed the 43-year legacy that we had worked so hard to build, and that legacy was really about rising above difficulties in order to fulfill one's higher truth and one's higher destiny."

Buckingham, who weaved his remarks about the Fleetwood Mac firing into a speech supporting Levin, remained diplomatic about the rift with his now-former bandmates, even sidestepping an audience member who yelled "**** Stevie Nicks."

The brief comments were Buckingham's first on the matter since Fleetwood Mac announced in April that the band recruited the Heartbreakers' Mike Campbell and Crowded House's Neil Finn to replace Buckingham, who reportedly didn't want to embark on a Mac tour this year.

"Words like 'fired' are ugly references as far as I'm concerned," Mick Fleetwood told Rolling Stone in April. "Not to hedge around, but we arrived at the impasse of hitting a brick wall. This was not a happy situation for us in terms of the logistics of a functioning band. To that purpose, we made a decision that we could not go on with him. Majority rules in term of what we need to do as a band and go forward."

Watch Buckingham's comments on the Fleetwood Mac situation below:

it's been exactly a year since this event. so many highs and lows in this year.

I unfortunately think that everything pales in comparison to his heart attack, and equally, to that bitter old hag kicking him out of the band, without which she'd still be a f*cking waitress, were it not for him.

Yes, but we would have had those anyway.

Nothing will make up for losing the Rumours 5.

And now Lindsey may never sing again!

lol guys, i'm trying to find something positive here! those shows last fall were amazing.

but i basically agree with everything you said Nancy. we would have had those solo shows last fall, in between Mac shows, anyway, maybe even with Christine dropping in, and possibility of European and Aus / NZ fans to experience Lindsey solo.

and the heart attack puts a huge damper on Lindsey's "i'm fine" spin last fall, considering we now know the whole thing was obviously eating him inside all that time.

When the last insult comes down from your friends
Hoping all your blind ambition will fall
And the love you know has come to an end
And the silence that answers your call
Save me
Well, it's gone too far
It's gone too far

The silence that answers your call reminded me too much of the Macsters who wouldn't even speak to Lindsey.

By the way, one of my favorite Mac reviews said that when Chris and Lindsey duet, she pleads and croons while he demands and howls like a wolf. I love that dichotomy.

And on Too Far Gone, I just get such a kick out of the way he says "GONE." She's contemplating all the why nots and he punctuates "gone," the time for hesitation being over.
