This is probably the most likely scenario. But one has to wonder why there is no FM rehearsals going on right now.

So now I feel disappointed.

Default My wish...

If only it were true. I'd actually have much more
respect for him as an artist. That fair-haired lady
would be enough for me to quit.

Too much $$$ for any of them to walk away now.

But wasn't there rumours of Lindsey leaving about a month ago on FB that wasn't related to Billy and his book?

I hope this is not true, I'd be so sad if he left ... It would be the ultimate if the fireflies of FM could stay together til death do us part

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?
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.

It’s interesting to see how people are not reading carefully and jumping to conclusions. Even the thread title is in that vein.

“Lindsey is out” does not automatically mean he left.

After writing what are basically love songs to FM like On with The Show -
As long as I stand I will take your hand
I will stand with my band
Stand with my band

And all his intros at BuckVie shows and his MusiCares speech about the love he feels in the band how can anyone think he would quit?

If this is true, there has to be something else that happened. Of course we will probably never know considering how they spin around and negate statements they gave in tons of interviews (“BuckVie was NEVER supposed to be a FM album” immediately comes to mind).

I didn't hear any rumours that he got the boot or was asked to leave, only that he left on his own accord. It's hard to piece things together when everyone's being so vague about what they've heard.

Can you point me to rumors that he left on his own accord?

Only ones I’ve seen are fans reading statements like Billy’s “Lindsey is out” and interpreting it as he left. And that’s just the same rumor being amplified from fan to fan.

Billy’s statement is definitely not very clear about him either leaving or being ousted.

They were speculative comments on Facebook from fans; "rumours" was the wrong word to use.

Now that I look back at some of the comments from yesterday, quite a few echo Billy's original post by saying he's "out," which, to me, sounds worse than simply saying that he "left." But maybe I'm overthinking it.

It wasn't until a few hours ago when I saw comments (once again, fan speculation) that he may have been kicked out. I don't know if those comments are based on an actual rumour or if they're just conjecture.
