No tusks about it, losing Lindsey Buckingham would be a crippling blow to any band.
But Fleetwood Mac have built a career out of shedding guitarists, from Bob Welch to Dave Mason – so, in a sense, it was business as usual when the group booked a massive tour without their longtime frontman.
Questions still linger about the revamped Mac, which features Tom Petty guitarist Mike Campbell and Crowded House's Neil Finn alongside the remaining Rumours-era crew. Will they blacklist all Buckingham material? If so, how they fill the gaps? (We won't even approach the subject of a new album, which they've teased as a possibility.)
