Lindsey Buckingham will not tour with FLEETWOOD MAC this summer, and "Rolling Stone" says it's because he was fired.

He'll be replaced by Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Neil Finn of Crowded House.

Apparently, they've been jamming with the band for the past two weeks.  As for Lindsey, the band just said, quote, "[He] will not be performing with the band on this tour.  The band wishes Lindsey all the best."

"Rolling Stone" says Lindsay was fired because of some kind of disagreement over the tour.

No dates have been announced yet.

Lindsey joined the band in 1974, along with Stevie Nicks.  He wrote and sang a lot of their popular songs, including "Go Your Own Way", "Tusk", and "Second Hand News". He left in 1987, but rejoined in 1996, and has been with them ever since.
