50 years in and this band is still having drama.

Fleetwood Mac, who are currently preparing to tour, have fired Lindsey Buckingham. 51 years in and this band is still having drama.

The band confirmed the news this week in a statement, announcing that Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' Mike Campbell and Crowded House's Neil Finn would replace Buckingham on tour. "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."

"Fleetwood Mac has always been a creative evolution," added the group, according to Pitchfork. "We look forward to honoring that spirit on this upcoming tour." The note concludes, "The band wishes Lindsey all the best."

"Fleetwood Mac has always been about an amazing collection of songs that are performed with a unique blend of talents," added Mick Fleetwood. "We jammed with Mike and Neil and the chemistry really worked and let the band realize that this is the right combination to go forward with in Fleetwood Mac style. We know we have something new, yet it's got the unmistakable Mac sound."

Fleetwood Mac is notorious for drama -- there stories about the infighting that took place while they recorded their iconic record Rumours has helped secure it and the band's legendary status. But to still be squabbling in 2018? That's fierce.
