Stevie Nicks calls out Lindsey Buckingham on his ‘factually inaccurate’ account of Fleetwood Mac exit, says situation was ‘toxic’

Metal Hammer

Stevie Nicks has called out her former Fleetwood Mac bandmate Lindsey Buckingham for what she says is his “factually inaccurate” and “revisionist” account of the events which led to him being fired from the group

Up to now, Nicks has kept her own counsel on the reasons behind her former partner being jettisoned from the soft rock legends in 2018, but just days after Buckingham gave an interview to the LA Times laying out his version of what transpired, taking some verbal shots at Nicks in the process, the singer has spoken up to reject his claims.

In his interview, Buckingham suggested that Nicks issued a ‘him or me’ ultimatum to the band, in a bid to assert more control over the group.

“I guess the singer has to stay,” he mused. “The figurehead has to stay.”

“You could do a whole analysis on Stevie at this point in her life and what she’s allowed to happen and what she’s allowed to slip away from her,” the guitarist added. “Her creativity, at least for a while it seemed like she wasn’t in touch with that. Same with the level of energy she once had onstage. I think that was hard for her, seeing me jump around in an age-inappropriate way. Also, she’s lonely. She’s alone. She has the people who work for her, and I’m sure she has friends, but you know.”
