Lindsey Buckingham’s departure from Fleetwood Mac could be tied to an ultimatum from Stevie Nicks.
The 69-year-old musician spoke on air for the first time since his split with the “Rumors” group on “CBS This Morning: Saturday.”
“It appeared to me that she was looking for something to hang on me, in order to instigate some kind of coup,” he told the morning show about a phone call he received from the band’s manager, Irving Azoff.
He continued: “Irving told me, a couple of days later, that she’d given the band an ultimatum, and either I had to go or she was going to go.”
