Lindsey Buckingham has only given a few interviews about getting fired from Fleetwood Mac since he was replaced last year. While he has discussed the pain he felt after the band he was part of for decades let him go, he seems to be moving on. Buckingham took to Twitter for a Q&A session recently and said he doesn’t miss Fleetwood Mac anymore.
“I can’t say that I ‘miss’ being in Fleetwood Mac, as I’ve been concentrating on fulfilling my own plans that were already in the works before the split happened. So, in a sense, the situation is still too new to miss…,” Buckingham tweeted in response to a question from a fan. A second tweet added, “especially since I don’t have much regard for the way the band is presenting itself now. What I’m sad about is the split completely dishonors the beautiful 43 year legacy we built together, one that was always about rising above our difficulties in order to pursue a higher truth.”
The guitarist went on to discuss the lack of communication he’s had with his former band mates, “I did hear from Christine [McVie] not long after we reached a settlement. (She’s the only one I’ve heard from). Christine said she missed me very much, that FM wasn’t complete without me…” Lindsey added, “and said she felt that Stevie [Nicks] was very likely regretting having given the rest of the band the ultimatum that forced my departure. Perhaps wishful thinking on Christine’s part. In any case, it was great to hear from her, and I do hope we work together again down the line.”
