    There have been rumours (sorry, I could resist) about it, but now it's confirmed. They fired Lindsey and have replaced him with Mike Campbell from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, and Neil Finn from Crowded House. They haven't said why, but supposedly there was a disagreement over what they were going to play on their up coming tour.

    The story first broke 5 days ago when Billy Burnette, who was in Fleetwood Mac for 10 years when Lindsey left in 1987, tweeted "Breaking News: Lindsey Buckingham is out, but I'm not in. A little pissed off, but I'll get over it". The tweet was deleted a few hours later.

    I'm curious to see what they sound like, it should be interesting.

    I think it's a combination of Cocaine, Fixodent, and Ginkgo Biloba. :wes:

    Too bad, he is a great guitar player. I didn't think Fleetwood Mac were still touring.

    I always liked Christine McVie, more than Stevie Nicks. Saw them live in 1976, then pretty much forgot about them.

    I like the band. I can't say I'm a huge fan, but they do have some great tunes. I have The Dance DVD, and it's pretty good. I bought a couple of Lindsey's solo albums, but didn't care for them much. Same goes for the band before Lindsey and Stevie joined. Great musicians, but most of their music just didn't grab me. This new lineup has my interest up though, more so than the previous incarnations.
