Christine McVie described the split with Lindsey Buckingham as “the only route we could take” to avoid the entire band from splitting up.
Last year, it was announced that Buckingham had parted ways with Fleetwood Mac, which continued to tour with replacement members. A lawsuit followed shortly, which was later settled.
In an interview with Mojo, McVie said, “It was the only route we could take, because there was too much animosity between certain members of the band at that point. … There was just no way it could’ve gone on as a five-piece, a group with Lindsey in the band. So it was either just completely break up the band or make the best of it.”
