This time, though, he may not have left by choice. Rolling Stones is now reporting he has been fired after a “disagreement over the band’s upcoming tour.”
In a statement, the band has announced that Heartbreakers’ guitarist/songwriter/producer Mike Campbell will be joining the band for the upcoming tour.
Stevie Nicks and Mike Campbell are tight, as she has been called an “honorary Heartbreaker.”
Fleetwood Mac issued a collective statement about the news, saying: “We are thrilled to welcome the musical talents of the caliber of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn into the Mac family. With Mike and Neil, we’ll be performing all the hits that the fans love, plus we’ll be surprising our audiences with some tracks from our historic catalogue of songs. Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution. We look forward to honoring that spirit on this upcoming tour.”
