According to Lindsey Buckingham, the former Fleetwood Mac guitarist and the band has settled the legal proceedings he had filed over his sacking from the band this year. Buckingham also revealed correspondence in the form of an e-mail from Christine McVie that hints at a potential reunion in the future.
Speaking to CBS This Morning on Saturday, Buckingham said that he’s “happy enough” with the settlement, which he didn’t divulge and his former bandmates were also keeping quiet. Buckingham said, “I’m not out there trying to twist the knife at all. I’m trying to look at this with some level of compassion, some level of wisdom.”
The guitarist explained that his only communication with any of his former bandmates happened two weeks ago when Christine McVie emailed him,
“She wrote me an e-mail and basically said, ‘Dearest Lindsey, just know that I had nothing to do with any of this. Know that I miss you so much.’ She said, ‘I believe deep in Stevie (Nicks)’ heart that she would like you to come home.’”
In October, Buckingham stated that Nicks was the reason for his departure from Fleetwood Mac, levelling the band with a “him-or-me” ultimatum after feeling dissed by his behaviour during a charity show in January.
When Buckingham was quizzed about how he felt about the new message from McVie, he said, “maybe underneath everything, Stevie would like to see me back already – that maybe she feels ambivalent about what’s going on. This could be Christine just expressing wishful thinking, or expressing something she thinks will make me feel better.”
Considering the groups’ checkered past of makeups and breakups, Buckingham also acknowledged fans who don’t believe he’s really played his last Fleetwood Mac show but the guitarist concluded, “I’m not so sure – something’s a little different this time.”
