Lindsay Buckingham told M Music and Musicians (via NME) that he will only release a new Fleetwood Mac album if diva Nicks agrees. The band recently reformed with Christine McVie, played some shows, and seem to be doing well. And, even if they aren’t, that means they can write something as awesome as Rumours.
“She had a wonderful experience making that album. She hasn’t said this – this is just me – but, knowing Stevie, she’s probably thinking, ‘If I have to write five new songs, do I want to give them to Fleetwood Mac?’ I think she’s feeling a bit protective and territorial about the experience she had doing her solo project. And I can totally relate to that,” said Buckingham about Nicks’ 2011 solo album In Your Dreams. “The way we do things is always a political minefield. If it’s not Stevie, it’s me; someone is always causing trouble. I know Warner Brothers is dying to get an album from us, even though we’re not signed to them anymore. Stevie needs to come to the table.”
