Will Lindsey Buckingham reunite with Fleetwood Mac? The band’s co-founder is giving fans hope. 

In 2018, Lindsey Buckingham was publicly fired from Fleetwood Mac, and Mick Fleetwood made it very clear that Buckingham would not rejoin the band. The band co-founder reiterated that Buckingham would not reunite with the band in 2020 when Crowded House’s Neil Finn and Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers’ Mike Campbell joined the Fleetwood Mac Tour. Now, there is change in the air.

“I’ve really enjoyed being re-connected with Lindsey, which has been gracious and open,” Fleetwood explained in the interview. “And both of us have been beautifully honest about who we are and how we got to where we were.”

When asked about a hypothetical farewell tour and the odds of Buckingham rejoining the band, Fleetwood no longer ruled the idea out of the question. Fleetwood stated:

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

While Fleetwood is open to the idea of a Buckingham reunion, another roadblock remains. Buckingham’s strained relationship with Stevie Nicks is part of the reason that he was fired in 2018. Fleetwood commented:

“I can’t speak for the dynamic with Stevie and him. I don’t even need to protect it. It’s so known that they’re chalk and cheese in so many ways, and yet not.”

While there are still fences to mend with Fleetwood Mac, Fleetwood intends to collaborate with Buckingham in the future. Fleetwood revealed:

“I know for a fact that I intend to make music and play again with Lindsey. I would love that. It doesn’t have to be in Fleetwood Mac.”
