Mick Fleetwood expressed his desire to make new music with former Fleetwood Mac bandmate, Lindsey Buckingham, but says that it may not be under the band’s banner.

Fleetwood has said earlier that the death of founding guitarist Peter Green in July 2020 served as a way for the two to get back on speaking terms. It can be remembered that Buckingham was fired from the band in 2018, which was apparently triggered when he angered Stevie Nicks with his demeanor at a benefit concert.

In a new Rolling Stone interview, Fleetwood said: “I know for a fact that I intend to make music and play again with Lindsey. I would love that. It doesn’t have to be in Fleetwood Mac.”

Fleetwood is also hopeful about doing a full-band reunion – which he says should include current members, Mike Campbell and Neil Finn, in a farewell tour once the pandemic eases over and music events are possible to take place. “I think the vision for me, and I think it would be hugely appropriate, is that we actually say ‘this is goodbye’ and go out and actually do that. That has always been my vision, and I’m a flatly confident that we can do that. We owe it to the fans,” said the drummer.

While Fleetwood said that he doesn’t really expect his plans to materialize, he also dismissed Christine McVie’s remark of how the band is past its touring stride. “I think she got out of bed on the wrong side that day. She meant to say, ‘We’ve done so much. I don’t know whether or not we can keep going.’ Anything other than that, she can speak for herself. But I can assure you we are alive and well,” he said.

He isn’t too sure about having Buckingham and Nicks together, however, seeing that the two still have some animosity between each other. Fleetwood said: “I can’t speak for the dynamic with Stevie and him. I don’t even need to protect it. It’s so known that they’re chalk and cheese in so many ways, and yet not. … Somehow, I would love the elements that are not healed to be healed. I love the fantasy that we could cross that bridge and everyone could leave with creative, holistic energy, and everyone could be healed with grace and dignity.”
