Fleetwood Mac Fired Lindsey Buckingham Over the Phone, After Stevie Nicks Said It Was Either Him or Her?

October 11, 2018

Lindsey Buckingham says Fleetwood Mac gave him the boot because Stevie Nicks wanted him out. And they did it over the phone. In a new interview with "Rolling Stone", Lindsay says they had an argument over the band playing "Rhiannon" as their intro music at their last show together in January.

And Stevie was also upset because he SMIRKED during her 'thank you' speech to the crowd. Lindsey said that the band's manager called him after the show and said, quote, "Stevie never wants to be on a stage with you again."  He asked, quote, "Is Stevie leaving the band, or am I getting kicked out?"

And that's when he was told he was out, because Stevie had made it clear that one of them had to go.
