The old band might be getting back together!

Mick Fleetwood has revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone that he has reconnected with Lindsey Buckingham, over two years since Lindsey was fired from Fleetwood Mac.

The reason for their rekindly came after the death of their mutual friend and bandmate Peter Green. 

“I’ve really enjoyed being re-connected with Lindsey, which has been gracious and open,” says Fleetwood.

“And both of us have been beautifully honest about who we are and how we got to where we were.”

The reconciliation leads to an obvious question: Might Buckingham come back into Fleetwood Mac for the farewell tour that Fleetwoodhas admitted to wanting?

“Strange things can happen,” says Fleetwood.

“I look at Fleetwood Mac as a huge family. Everyone plays an important role in our history, even someone like [early Seventies] guitarist Bob Welch, who was huge and sometimes gets forgotten. Lindsey’s position in Fleetwood Mac will, for obvious reasons, never been forgotten, as it should never be forgotten.”

“My vision of things happening in the future is really far-reaching,” he continues.

“Would I love to think that [reunion] could happen? Yeah. I’d love to think that all of us could be healed, and also respect the people who are in the band, Neil Finn and Michael Campbell.”

The biggest hurdle for getting Lindsey back in the band however, is getting Stevie Nicks to come around about the idea.

The pairs strained relationship reportedly hit a breaking point in 2018 and was the cause of Buckingham being fired from the band.
