Lindsay Buckingham Calls 2015 Last Year For Fleetwood Mac

Lindsay Buckingham has gone on record stating that 2015 will be the final year for Fleetwood Mac.

Buckingham recently appeared on the Tavis Smiley show on PBS, saying that the upcoming album and tour “will wrap up this last act.” He did admit, though, that there’s still a year or two left and that he would be putting off his solo activities until things wrap up.

For Buckingham, it was the return of Christine McVie that reinvigorated the band. “Christine really fills the gap of the polarity that might exist otherwise, and helps things breathe.”

Christine also brought with her a number of new songs that impressed Buckingham. “She gave me a bunch of stuff to take home. I worked on it, came back and she loved it. We went into the studio and came out with the best songs we’ve co-written in years.”

Still, the end is near. The current membership of Fleetwood Mac came together exactly forty years ago (New Year’s Eve 1974) and, through divorces, breaks and the hiatus of Christine McVie, have survived as one of the enduring legends of rock. Over that time, they’ve released seven studio albums (eight if you count 1995’s Time, which was a bit of a mongrel).

Buckingham summed up the future by saying “We’re going to continue working on the new album, and the solo stuff will take a back seat for a year or two. A beautiful way to wrap up this last act.”
