“I’d like to tour as soon as I possibly can under my own name, but I want to wait until another Lindsey Buckingham album has been put out so that any show can contain only solo material. I don’t want to be in the position of having to throw in classic Fleetwood Mac tunes to fill up the gaps. Both Stevie and Christine did this and, consequently, their gigs came across as lounge performances.”

Buckingham’s words certainly suggest that he’s plotting a Mac-less future; so is this the end for the five-piece?

“Well, we’re planning to get together soon in Los Angeles and discuss our collective future. At the moment, I’m not sure how things will go, we shall have to wait and see. If you’re asking me should Fleetwood Mac continue, at this point in time my answer must be... NO! I don’t see any reason to carry on with the band just because certain people have hit financial troubles."
