Buckingham is suing his former bandmates for breach of fiduciary duty, breach of oral contract and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage, among other charges.

Buckingham, 69, one of the most influential members of the British-American band behind hits like "Don't Stop" and 'Rhiannon, ' was dropped earlier this year from the tour line-up.

During a recent concert in Chicago, the band, along with Finn who replaced Lindsey Buckingham, gave live performances of Crowded House and Split Enz favourites.

Former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham has opened up about his firing from the group, placing the blame exclusively on Stevie Nicks.

"(I said), 'This feels amusing.

After the call, the guitarist assumed Nicks would quit the band, so he tried to contact drummer Mick Fleetwood, but he never heard back from him or any other members.

'Am I heartbroken about not doing another tour with Fleetwood Mac? As much as I adore (and forever will) Lindsey and all his work with FM, I can't help but like what I'm hearing here.

"In a cruel final twist, having falsely claimed that Buckingham's request to delay the start of the tour from August to November was the reason for his expulsion", they wrote, "the band announced it would delay the start of the Fleetwood Mac tour until October to accommodate the addition of Buckingham's replacements".

As Buckingham told Rolling Stone, a few days after the show he received a phone call from manager Irving Azoff, who proceeded to list various issues Nicks had with his behavior that night, including his complaints about their intro music being Nicks' "Rhiannon" and that he may have "smirked" while she was giving her acceptance speech. It's fairly standard legal procedure to service the complaint to the parties involved, something that neither Mr Buckingham nor his legal counsel have done.

The suit comes a day after the publication of a fiery new Rolling Stone interview with Buckingham, in which he claims his former lover, Stevie Nicks, was behind his exit from Fleetwood Mac. Which makes one wonder what the true motivations are when servicing press first with a legal complaint before the parties in disputes.

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online and Us Weekly, Buckingham claims the firing cost him between $12 to $14million.
