Lindsey Buckingham Sues Bandmates Ahead of Indy Tour Stop
INDIANAPOLIS -- Fleetwood Mac is coming to Indianapolis on Tuesday but without singer-songwriter Lindsey Buckingham, who was fired from the band in January.
Outraged over being kicked out of the band, Buckingham is suing bandmates Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood.
The lawsuit filed in Los Angeles on Tuesday alleges breach of contract and other charges.
Buckingham, 69, first joined the band in 1975 and brought then-romantic partner Stevie Nicks with him. Together, the duo fueled Fleetwood Mac's most commercially successful period, which included the release of the album Rumours in 1977.
He left Fleetwood Mac in 1987, rejoined in 1997, and remained with the band until his firing in January.
Fleetwood Mac (without Buckingham) will bring its 'An Evening With Fleetwood Mac' tour to Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
