Default Newsweek Article

"I don't really communicate with Christine much. She's back in England...but everything is fine with her. All of that stuff that happened, it wasn't something Christine or Mick [Fleetwood] really wanted. But they had to go along, and I don't hold a grudge for that. Everyone has had their moments of weakness, and I just look at it that way."

Lindsey Buckingham ends on a philosophical and somewhat melancholic note with the atmospheric and stark ballad "Dancing." Buckingham says some of the song's lyrics may have been inspired by Stevie Nicks. "Some of it could have been sort of a notion that was based on Stevie," he says, "and how she tends to sort of isolate herself emotionally and has put all her priorities into her professional life"

With Christine moving back to England, it suddenly feels like a nastier version of 1998.

I don't find her latest decisions that professional.

He isn’t being very tactful, if he wants to get back with his wife…

“she tended to leave not only me in the lurch, but maybe our kids, too.”
Maybe he should have left that subject alone !!

But that apart, I like what he is saying, he is honest.

as i've been saying, he has no filter in regular conversations. hasn't had one for years.

that's why when Azoff et al were managing him, he was only talking about organic cycels in every interview, they muzzled him. now he is himself in interviews and not trying to keep some kind of public persona, so that comes with everything he blurts out. even LA Times interviewer was shocked how refreshingly honest he is. not many people are as unguarded in what they say as he is, and that's been coming out to bite him in recent interviews.

Kind of a nice trait to have in your personality, especially as he’s now well into his seventies..

yeah but he needs to stop talking about Stevie's personal life now.

He said what he wanted to say about her life (appropriate or not), and he needs to talk about himself, his record, whatever he wants about his own life. Talking about the politics of FM and Stevie's role in all that is totally legit.

The longer this band goes on that feels applicable to all of them. Birds of a feather flock together. Their codependency knows no bounds.

I feel comfortable changing my statement to, "they're all nuttier than squirrel turds". Even though $tevie will always be the turdiest.

Makes me feel stupid, for following them for 44 years. Got a cyanide capsule I can borrow? I'll gladly pay you back next Tuesday...

He’s at risk of getting attracting attention that might make his name cross the lips of people like Ronan Farrow, which no one wants.

god I hate where we live now. I'm sure it's coming for him.

There should be a statute of limitations on "just being an as*hole", of like 10 years. 1987? Sorry about your luck!

Well, if he stopped talking about Stevie’s personal choices, no one would bother him. But he’s inviting it. He walks a thin line. He knows he’s not wrong.

And I also have to say that I can’t believe a man who spent years on the road is saying that his wife left him and his kids in a lurch. Do his children want him to tell the press that, even if it’s the truth? I doubt it.

I mean I got the impression he thought something like that about Kristin when he wrote When She Comes Down, but I wish he wouldn’t say those things.
