8 months after being fired from the band he helped skyrocket to success, Lindsey Buckingham has filed suit against them.

According to US Weekly, the lawsuit accuses Fleetwood Mac of breach of fiduciary duty, breach of oral contract and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage.

If you remember, Buckingham had asked the band to postpone its tour for 3 months while he toured with his solo band. Shortly thereafter, the hammer dropped.

The band announced they would be parting ways with Buckingham and invited Mike Campbell, guitarist for Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Neil Finn, guitarist/vocalist  of Crowded House into the band.

There are currently Central Florida tour dates booked for Lindsey Buckingham October 28 at the King Center in Melbourne and for Fleetwood Mac in February at the Amalie Arena.

Here’s what Buckingham told Rolling Stone in a just-released interview, about his firing:

While he watched the Grammy’s, two days after performing with Fleetwood Mac at the Grammy’s MusiCares event, their manager, Irving Azoff called and told him, “Stevie never wants to be onstage with you again.”

Lindsey shared some of the items that “Stevie took issue with” with the magazine.
