FLEETWOOD MAC could be calling it quits before getting restarted with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham believing their latest reunion tour will be their last.
News of their current On With The Show tour caused a particular stir after it was announced that keyboardist Christine McVie would be rejoining following a 16-year absence.
And though the group have also revealed plans to release their first new album in 12 years Lindsey, 65, is doubtful that this reconciliation signals a fresh start.
He says: “If you think of this tour as the beginning of the last act. That’s how it feels. The album would be a beautiful way to kind of wrap up this last act.”
Formed in London in 1967 by drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie, the band went through a number of line-up changes before settling on the combination with Lindsey, Christine and singer Stevie Nicks in 1974.
Widely considered the definitive incarnation of the band, they achieved great success with albums such as Rumours before Christine announced an early retirement in 1998.
While the band members had a turbulent working relationship throughout, Lindsey admits time apart has healed old wounds and recent recording sessions have been a success.
“We went in the studio for two months and came up with probably the best group of songs that we’ve done in years.”
