Mick Fleetwood has revealed that he reconnected with former Fleetwood Mac bandmate Lindsey Buckingham following the death of founding member Peter Green in July of this year.
In an interview with Page Six, Fleetwood said he spoke by phone with Buckingham after Green passed away.
“Lindsey said, ‘I know you’re really sad,’ and of course, I was. And that’s what reconnected me and Lindsey,” Fleetwood said. “We had the greatest talk. It was like we’d just spoken five minutes ago.”
Buckingham was fired from the group in 2018 amid disagreements over the then-upcoming tour and was replaced by Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Crowded House‘s Neil Finn.
“I think the reality is without going into huge detail, one of the things I always say is that the disconnect happened and there were emotions that were somewhat not removable and there are personal things within the band and Lindsey’s world,” Fleetwood remarked.
“All I can say is really openly is that Lindsey Buckingham and the work he has done with the band is never going to go away,” he added. “We have a functioning band with the changes that we made. You know time heals and it was lovely to be able to talk with him.”
