Fleetwood Mac's Buckingham Discusses Christine McVie's Burnt Bridges

12/05/2012
.
(CBS Local) Fleetwood Mac has just announced dates for their 2013 tour which will consist of founding members Mick Fleetwood on drums and John McVie on bass, along with singer/guitarist/songwriter Lindsey Buckingham and singer/songwriter Stevie Nicks but not Christine McVie who lest the band after The Dance tour.

Would Fleetwood Mac ever welcome Christine to join them for a few of her classics? CBS Local put that question to Lindsey Buckingham. "Well, that's a good question! It's an odd thing for me, in many ways I'm having a better time in the band as a foursome, only because it opens up a range of things that I can do. Except for maybe 'Don't Stop,' we don't do a lot of her stuff. It opens up the amount of material we can play, it allows me to be more of a 'guy,' to be more of who I am up there," he explains, saying that without a keyboardist in the band, his guitar takes center stage. "I would be shocked if she ever expressed any interest to do anything with us. Shocked and pleased."

Christine has attended one Fleetwood Mac show since leaving the band (she declined to perform with them), but she hasn't had much contact with the group in the past decade. But Buckingham explains that she was going through a lot of life changes at that point. "She ended up getting a divorce, she ended up selling her house in L.A., she moved back to England, she quit the band, she sold her publishing," Buckingham said. "She didn't necessarily have to burn as many bridges as she did. Everyone sometimes wonders whether or not there might have been more of a middle ground for her to strike, not necessarily in terms of her staying in Fleetwood Mac. But she just wanted to reinvent herself. She seems to want to lead the antithesis of the life she led before, and I don't pretend to understand such a radical change but it was obviously something she needed." More from Lindsey here.
