Lindsey Buckingham speaks out about his departure from Fleetwood Mac

Lindsey Buckingham has now spoken about his departure from Fleetwood Mac.

He performed at a fundraiser over the weekend for for Mike Levin, a Democratic candidate for California's 49th Congressional District, where he made his first public comments about the band's decision to tour without him.

Buckingham said, "It’s been an interesting time on a lot of levels. For me, personally, probably some of you know that for the last three months I have sadly taken leave of my band of 43 years, Fleetwood Mac. This was not something that was really my doing or my choice. I think what you would say is that there were factions within the band that had lost their perspective."
