Fleetwood Mac fans react to the news of Lindsey Buckingham's departure

On Tuesday it was announced that Lindsey Buckingham would be leaving Fleetwood Mac.

More recently it was reported that the reason for his depature was because he was 'fired' from the group after a disagreement over the band's upcoming tour.

Many fans have responded to the news on Twitter questioning whether the band would be the same without him.

“‘I’m sorry, but Fleetwood Mac are NEVER the same without Lindsey Buckingham. He is amazing and I’m really sad to hear that he is no longer with the band. Tells you something when they have to replace him with 2 guitarists!!”, one fan wrote on Twitter.

“This is heartbreaking cause Lindsey Buckingham is genuinely irreplaceable. No ones gonna be able to smash out big love the way he does, or play beside Stevie during landslide the way he does, or run around the stage like a 5 year old the way HE DOES. It just won’t be the same”, another fan said.
