Mick Fleetwood Hopes for Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham Reconciliation Without Fleetwood Mac Reunion

Mick Fleetwood has shared his hopes for Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham to heal their feud, emphasizing that this does not necessitate a Fleetwood Mac reunion.

The Feud Between Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham

Lindsey Buckingham left Fleetwood Mac in 2018 due to tensions with Stevie Nicks. Buckingham claimed he was informed of the band’s decision by their manager, Irving Azoff, who allegedly stated, “Stevie never wants to be on a stage with you again.” Nicks refuted Buckingham’s claims, calling his version “factually inaccurate.” Buckingham sued Fleetwood Mac over his dismissal, citing lost income from the upcoming tour, and the case was eventually settled.

Mick Fleetwood’s Perspective

Despite the ongoing feud, Mick Fleetwood has reconciled with Buckingham and remains on good terms with both Nicks and Buckingham. In a recent interview with Mojo, Fleetwood expressed his personal desire for reconciliation between the two musicians. He said, “Stevie’s able to speak clearly about how she feels and doesn’t feel, as does Lindsey. But I’ll say, personally, I would love to see a healing between them – and that doesn’t have to take the shape of a (Fleetwood Mac) tour, necessarily.”

Possibility of a Fleetwood Mac Reunion

Earlier this year, Buckingham revealed that he would rejoin Fleetwood Mac “in a heartbeat” if asked. He reflected on his dismissal, saying, “I was in the band for almost 45 years, and we were always able to work out our differences over things of which were far more profound than any issues that happened in 2018.”

However, a Fleetwood Mac reunion seems unlikely following the death of Christine McVie in 2022. After her passing, Nicks stated the band had no plans to tour, saying, “When Christine died, I felt like you can’t replace her. You just can’t. Without her, what is it?”

Current Activities of Stevie Nicks and Mick Fleetwood

Stevie Nicks is currently busy touring as a solo artist and is set to headline BST Hyde Park on July 12th in London. This performance will be her first in the capital since McVie’s passing and marks her return to the venue where she last performed with Tom Petty in 2017.

While Fleetwood will not be performing, he plans to attend the show. He told Mojo, “I’m gonna get myself a vicarious fix. For once, I get to be a punter in the audience and see them do all the work.”

Fleetwood also shared that he has been going through a “strange time” following McVie’s death, describing the loss as “catastrophic.” He added, “And then, in my world, sort of losing the band too. And I (split) with my partner as well. I just found myself sort of licking my wounds.”

Despite canceling shows in Manchester and Glasgow due to a “minor surgical procedure,” Nicks remains scheduled to resume her European tour with her performance in London on July 12th.
