Guitarist says that the band may not be back next year
Just a few weeks after Buckingham and his Mac bandmate Stevie Nicks proclaimed that Fleetwood Mac would be back next year, it seems that we may have to wait for another reunion for a little while.
Speaking to Ultimate Classic Rock Buckingham says that Nicks' recent success with her latest solo album and his own solo release, Seeds We Sow, may prompt the band to delay their tour
"If I knew the real story, believe me, I would tell you. I wish I could. I would like to know what I'm doing next year," the guitarist tells Ultimate Classic Rock. "If you had asked me two months ago, I would have said 'Absolutely.' Now I'm not sure."
"There may be another leg of [my solo tour] this year. That remains to be seen," he said. "Stevie is doing a lot of different things. She is having fun [touring and supporting] this album. I don't begrudge her that. She enjoyed the process of recording it, and I don't she had a good process of [recording an] album in a long, long time..."
Yet Buckingham is clear that he expects to work with Fleetwood Mac again, even if it is not as soon as next year.
"Yes, Fleetwood Mac will do something in the future," he said, adding he expects to work solely with Nicks again, too, although there are no concrete plans for that either. "There's just nothing on the books right now...This is a time for me to take stock all of the things I've done in my life, all the people I've been down the road with, and all the things I've experienced...and just appreciate them. When you revisit them, you want all of these things to be in a place where they have dignity."
