Two weeks ago, Fleetwood Mac announced that Lindsey Buckingham, the group's popular guitarist, would not join the coming tour. According to Live Nation's press release, the band will comprise Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks and newcomers Mike Campbell and Neil Finn.
In his preview of Fleetwood Mac's 2015 show in Buffalo, The News' Jeff Miers discussed some of the band's internal turmoil. Years before Buckingham's departure, Miers stressed his centrality to the band's mission - and greatness.
"The magnet that keeps pulling the band’s members back to Fleetwood Mac is Buckingham," Miers wrote. "Or more specifically, it’s Buckingham’s genius that keeps them all coming back for more. Though 'Rumours' features songs written by all five Macs – Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie in particular are responsible for the album’s biggest hits – it was Buckingham who crafted the sound of the album, aided immeasurably in the arrangements of Nicks’ and McVie’s songs, and provided the majority of the musical direction."
