Lindsey Buckingham claims he doesn't miss Fleetwood Mac

Lindsey Buckingham says he doesn't miss being in Fleetwood Mac on Twitter.

As of his departure to Fleetwood Mac, Buckingham has been busy with his solo work and tour as well as a lawsuit with his former band (which was later settled).

When a fan had asked Buckingham on Twitter on whether he misses being in Fleetwood Mac, Buckingham responds saying, "I can’t say that I “miss” being in Fleetwood Mac, as I’ve been concentrating on fulfilling my own plans that were already in the works before the split happened. So, in a sense, the situation is still too new to miss..."

He continues in another tweet, "especially since I don’t have much regard for the way the band is presenting itself now. What I'm sad about is the split completely dishonours the beautiful 43-year legacy we built together, one that was always about rising above our difficulties in order to pursue a higher truth."

Another fan asked if he had contacted Christine McVie after the settlement, in which Buckingham responses with, "Yes, I did hear from Christine not long after we reached a settlement. (She’s the only one I’ve heard from). Christine said she missed me very much, that FM wasn’t complete without me and said she felt that Stevie was very likely regretting having given the rest of the band the ultimatum that forced my departure. Perhaps wishful thinking on Christine’s part. In any case, it was great to hear from her, and I do hope we work together again down the line.

On a less sour note, Buckingham replies to another fan's question on his favourite part of the 'Tusk' tour, saying, "Looking back on the 'Tusk' tour, I’d say that the meaning I derived from that tour was much the same as the meaning I derived from writing and recording the 'Tusk' album. The choice to make 'Tusk' was a line in the sand; it was the moment in which I chose to follow the creativity, not the money, to aspire to be an artist & risk taker rather opting to settle into a set of labels and formulas, even if it meant confounding expectations. In putting a show together in support of the album, that sensibility, that point of departure was tangible on stage as well."
