Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham: 'There's a subtext of love between Stevie Nicks and I'

Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham has said there is a "subtext of love" between him and ex-partner Stevie Nicks.

The pair famously broke up during the making of the band's seminal album 'Rumours' in 1977 and, in an interview with Men's Journal, Buckingham said that they were still "trying to work some things out" although there would "never be romance" between them.

Speaking about their working relationship, he said: "There's a subtext of love between us, and it would be hard to deny that much of what we've accomplished had something to do with trying to prove something to each other. Maybe that's fucked up but this is someone I've known since I was 16, and I think on some weird level we're still trying to work some things out. There will never be romance there, but there are other kinds of love to be had."

Asked what it was like to work with an ex, meanwhile, he said: "You get used to it. And for me, getting married and having children was a positive outcome. I wonder sometimes how Stevie feels about the choices she made, because she doesn't really have a relationship - she has her career. But there are a few chapters to be written in the Stevie-Lindsey legacy."

Yesterday (March 22), Nicks said that Buckingham had always blamed Fleetwood Mac for the demise of their romance but also insisted that the band was more important than any personal relationship. "We never, ever, with everything that happened to us, ever, let love affairs break Fleetwood Mac up," she claimed.

Fleetwood Mac are set to come to the UK as part of a forthcoming world tour. Speaking about UK tour dates, drummer Mick Fleetwood recently said: "We're doing a big world tour that starts in April. We're coming here [the UK] in September, October and maybe a bit longer. We're doing a lot of work here so we are coming." The drummer also revealed that there is a new Fleetwood Mac album in the pipeline and that new songs will be released online in the coming months.

The band were rumored to be making their debut appearance on the Pyramid Stage at this years' Glastonbury Festival, however a string of US dates announced over the same weekend makes this seem unlikely.

Fleetwood Mac will play:

Dublin 02 (September 20)
London O2 Arena (24, 25, 27)
Birmingham LG Arena (29)
Manchester Arena (October 1)
Glasgow The Hydro (3)
