Default New Entertainment Weekly article- Lindsey says Mick wants him back in FM

Unfortunately I can never post links, but if someone would like to, they can find the article at www.ew.com

This is the most Lindsey has ever said the ball is in Stevie’s court now.

The article concludes with an invitation for readers to check back with ew in the fall to hear more from Lindsey about his new alum, coming out September 17.

Very disappointing that Lindsey would try to placate that old harpy for an embarrassing " farewell tour" of near octogenarians some of whom are too old to perform . Micky is such a slimy and greedy P.O.S. that I hope it never happens so he can die in penury.

He is basically just repeating what we already know to be true. She went to Azoff and told him it is either him or me. If that makes her out to be a villainess it is maybe because she is one.

Sometimes I wonder if Lindsey even really wants a reunion or is he just throwing the sh*t back in Stevie's face with the attitude of let the public see what kind of person she truly is. He's basically making the case for Stevie to look like the difficult one at the end of the day(which she is), despite their collective effort to pin it on Lindsey 3 years ago.

It's kinda like saying "I'll come back for a reunion but somebody will have to eat a sh*t sandwich first"

LMAO. It's going to be more embarrassing for Stevie at this point than it is for Lindsey. If she really has an axe to grind, it's her time to shine!

I see things a little bit different than you guys. Mick is a whore and does NOTHING without his pimp's approval aka "The Boss." Mick would not be making overtones to Lindsey without the boss's blessing. This is how the mob works too. Mick did her dirty work with firing Lindsey and he is doing the dirty work now for the boss. "come in, the water is fine."
I don't fall for a second of this crap. Lindsey knows this too. Mick needs money and sees a reunion enough for high ticket sales for a bunch of farewell shows. He has discussed this with the boss and she has obviously given the green light to make overtures to Lindsey.

I agree with you--Christine had to walk back her comments about FM never touring again because she alluded to Stevie (obvi without her approval).
I agree LB is aware of this too, although I am loving all of the shade he's throwing her way. Mick can do all of the grandstanding he wants on her behalf, the toothpaste is out of the tube and can't be put back--and Stevie came out of this looking, if possible, more narcissistic and out of touch then ever. And that is definitely saying something.

I have a different theory- I think Stevie is still mad at Lindsey, but Mick really does want Lindsey back in FM. The tour is over and everyone made a lot of money, including Lindsey, but Mick probably realized during the last tour that they all likely only have one more tour left in them before they retire. Throw in Lindseyís apparently sincere desire to rejoin the band for one last hurrah, and surprising willingness to forgive and forget, and Christineís likely willingness to tour one last time, and I think Mick is hoping that Stevie will change her tune. In that EW interview, it sounded like Lindsey was even ok with not recording with FM again, which makes sense if he and Mick think a FM tour would truly be their farewell. Plus, a FM farewell tour with Lindsey back in the band would sell wildly. If the pandemic ever subsides enough, that is. I suspect Lindseyís solo tour is going to be called off. If so, Lindseyís really going to want to do a big television reunion concert with FM ala the Dance, and Stevie would absolutely join them for that. John, I bet he wonít tour, but he would probably do a televised concert. So with all these different theories floating about, itíll be interesting to see what actually happens.

Ugh, itís not like a reunion of the Rumours five will make them sound better this time out. Lindseyís the creative lynchpin, but Iíd rather hear new solo work from him than this sad show. More BuckVie!

If the reunion happens at least the Neil and Mike lineup wonít as often show up in google searches of the band. I suppose thatís somethingÖ

Lindsey Buckingham says Mick Fleetwood wants him to return to Fleetwood Mac
"It's really going to take Stevie coming to that point of view."

Don't stop thinking about tomorrow ó especially if that tomorrow includes a reunited version of Fleetwood Mac.

The band parted ways with Lindsey Buckingham back in 2018, but ahead of the release of his self-titled solo album this September, the guitarist tells EW that fans shouldn't count out a potential reunion one day.

"There have been intimations from Mick [Fleetwood], who I've talked to several times, that he wants to try to get the five of us back together," he says. "I did not see their last tour. I'm sure it was fine, but I think it was probably very mellow by comparison...They were covering so much other Fleetwood Mac material, and they were doing Crowded House songs and Tom Petty songs. So, I wasn't sure how that was going to pan out, and I wasn't sure how Mick ultimately felt about it either, but that was the politics of the situation that led to that."

Buckingham was ousted from the band in 2018 following a request that was reportedly instigated by his former bandmate Stevie Nicks. At the time, Buckingham said he was informed by Mac manager Irving Azoff that Nicks never wanted to share a stage with him again. He was replaced by the combination of Neil Finn and Mike Campbell on Fleetwood Mac's tour shortly after.

But despite the seeming finality of the request from Nicks (and a since-settled lawsuit from Buckingham), he's hopeful that the world could see the five most renowned members of the group back together one day in the future.

"Mick ó he didn't want to see me go in the first place ó but he's talking about that," he says. "I would never hang my hat on that. It's really going to take Stevie coming to that point of view, and I haven't spoken to Stevie in a long, long time, so I don't know where that's at. It's certainly something that more than one person who is close to the situation has brought to me."

As for his part, Buckingham would be more than open to the prospect of returning. "I wasn't happy about how that went down," he reflects. "It wasn't so much that I felt slighted that I didn't get to do yet another Fleetwood Mac tour, but I thought it really did not respect the legacy that we built, which was all about overcoming adversity."

"Anything that anyone had an issue with, with me, was so small in comparison with other things we managed to rise above," he adds. "So anyway, that's a ó perhaps slim ó possibility."

Come back to EW this fall for much more from Buckingham on his new album, which is available everywhere Sept. 17.

"EW" should also be the name of this cringeworthy hypothetical reunion tour.

"Fleetwood Mac 2023: Ew!"

He wants the money from a tour. Kristin left and took half his wealth. Solo he can't make much.

I donít think itís solely about money for Lindsey. He has always considered the bandís legacy seriously and engaged in solo projects that strayed from the requirements of upholding that legacy. I would say the man has some integrity. Mind you, I donít think heís beyond the lure of big money, but that is and never was his primary motivation.

I agree, though he and Kristin didn't divorce.
The legacy can't be redeemed. The 95 lineup did an album, the Burnette/Vito did an album, and this current lineup did cover songs. It's what it is, they've become The Beach Boys of the touring circuit.
