It has been announced that Lindsey Buckingham has parted ways with Fleetwood Mac.

Guitarist/vocalist Buckingham first joined the band in 1974 and remained a member until 1987. He then reunited with the group in 1996.

According to TMZ, Buckingham has quit the band just as the group is set to embark on a live tour this summer. The report suggests Buckingham’s decision is “final and firm”, but the reason for his exit is currently unknown.

Buckingham will be replaced on the tour byTom Petty and The Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell and Crowded House’s Neil Finn .

A statement from the band simply reads: “Lindsey Buckingham will not be performing with the band on this tour. The band wishes Lindsey all the best.”

Last year saw Buckingham release an album of duets with Fleetwood Mac bandmate Christine McVie.

Earlier this year, Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks shared her views on sexual harassment and equality within the music industry.

“Everybody needs to not let this be a kind of big wave and just go away and say, ‘Oh well, you know, it’s over and nobody cares anymore,’” Nicks said. “Everybody has to keep really fighting because otherwise women, we will be swept under the carpet yet again and it will just start over.”

Drawing on her personal experiences within the band, Nicks said that herself and bandmate Christine McVie hadn’t been exposed to much sexual misconduct over the years.

“I think I’ve been very lucky,” she said. “And maybe it’s because when I joined Fleetwood Mac, Christine and I made a pact. We said we will never ever be treated like a second class citizen amongst our peers as we get more famous and more famous – and if we’re in a room with famous rock n’ roll stars that are men and they treat us that way, we will scream at them and then we’ll walk out.”
