Live Nation Earnings
Thanks to a lawsuit filed by on-again, off-again member Lindsey Buckingham in October 2018, we uncovered some of the financial inner-workings of today’s Fleetwood Mac. Buckingham filed a lawsuit against his former bandmates after being dropped from the group’s 2018-2019 Live Nation tour. According to the lawsuit, each band member would get $200,000 each show over the course of 60 shows, for a total compensation of $12 million under the terms of their arrangement with Live Nation. Depending on other attendance targets and extra dates added in the road, the total might approach $14 million. The lawsuit was settled three months later for an undisclosed sum. Buckingham issued the following statement:
“We’ve all given our approval to something. I’m satisfied with it. I’m not attempting to twist the knife in any way. I’m attempting to approach this with a sense of compassion and wisdom.”
On July 12, 1943, McVie was born in the Lake District of Bouth, Lancashire, England. Cyril, her father, was a concert violinist who also taught music at St. Peter’s College of Education. He was also a violin teacher.
Beatrice, her mother, was a faith healer and psychic. McVie grew up with her older brother, John, in the Birmingham area. Despite the fact that she began playing the piano at the age of four, she did not begin serious music studies until she was eleven years old. She turned her interests to rock & roll at the age of 15 after focusing on classical music for several years.
McVie had originally intended to become an art instructor. She spent five years studying sculpture at a Birmingham art college. She met a number of musicians working in the local scene around this period and was encouraged to join a band named Sounds Of Blue.
The band disbanded before McVie finished her studies, at which point she opted to relocate to London in order to pursue her painting career. She formed Chicken Shack with old Sounds Of Blue comrades and recorded two albums with them.
In 1968, McVie married Fleetwood Mac’s John McVie. They stayed together until 1976, when they divorced. She married Dennis Willis of The Beach Boys in 1979, but the couple called off their engagement in 1982. Eddy Quintela, a keyboardist, became her boyfriend later on. In October of 1986, the two married, but divorced in 2003.
