Mick Fleetwood wants Lindsey Buckingham back in ‘Mac’
Mick Fleetwood would like to reunite with his Fleetwood Mac bandmate Lindsey Buckingham after their reconciliation earlier this year.
“The idea of going on stage, and Lindsey being a part of it, would be very healing,” Fleetwood said in a recent interview with Gary Kemp and Guy Pratt on the Rockonters Podcast.
In the interview, Fleetwood said that he hopes they can “make music” together again. “I hope to be the instigator of it all before I strike it all over the head,” shared Fleetwood, who once said a reconciliation with Buckingham would be “unlikely.”
After Buckingham’s sacking from the band three years ago, Tom Petty and Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Crowded House frontman Neil Finn have joined Fleetwood Mac to replace the guitarist on the band’s 2018-19 tour. “It’s not saying goodbye to Mike or Neil,” Fleetwood said. “We don’t behave like that, but something connective.”
Buckingham, who suffered a heart attack in February 2019, continued to release his solo material, including an eponymous album, his seventh and first in a decade since The seeds we sow and his collaboration in 2017 with his group mate Mac Christine McVie.
“I believe Lindsey and I will make music together like he did with Christine,” Fleetwood said, “and I would love that no matter the unbridled feelings that aren’t healed for all of their personal reasons. “
