Buckingham out, Finn in for Fleetwood Mac

Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia / 99.3 B-Rock FM

The musical equivalent of bombshell was dropped on unsuspecting fans when Fleetwood Mac announced that long time guitarist Lindsey Buckingham had left the band, but as Variety has reported Buckingham didn’t leave, he was booted by the remaining members. The bigger shock came in who would be replacing him, none other than New Zealand’s treasure claimed by Australia Neil Finn, who tweeted ‘Snow warnings for parts of the country, the mystery of Stonehenge solved and yes I’ve joined Fleetwood Mac’. Finn will be joined by long time Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell. The band had previously announced that they plan a massive world tour in 2018, so rehearsals featuring the new line up are already underway. To say yesterday was an interesting day would be an understatement.
