Fleetwood Mac will cease to operate in 2015, says guitarist

MUMBAI: According to the band's guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, 2015 will mark the end of the Grammy Award winning band. Internet sources claim that he told American broadcast channel PBS that the upcoming Fleetwood Mac album will be their "last act" in an interview with well known television host, Tavis Smiley.

In the interview, Buckingham said, "She gave me a bunch of stuff to take home. I worked on it, came back, and she loved it. We went into the studio and came out with the best songs we have co-written in years." He further added, "Christine really fills the gap of the polarity that might exist otherwise, and helps things breathe."

Buckingham admitted initial scepticism on his part when original keyboardist and songwriter, Christine McVie, expressed desire to return after quitting the band in 1998. In the interview, he also said, "My initial reaction was, ‘OK – we have to take this with baby steps.' The want to return does not mean you can repeat history; it does not mean all the tools, all the reference points are still there for it all to work. We are going to continue working on the new album, and the solo stuff will take a back seat for a year or two. (It is) a beautiful way to wrap up this last act."

The upcoming album will be the first since the band's ‘Say You Will', which was released in 2003. Fleetwood Mac was recently signed up for the Isle of Wight festival in 2015. The band has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and has received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. Fleetwood Mac has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time.
