Coming on the eve of his new LP’s release, the performance saw the Buckingham deliver a steady but ripping rendition of the track. The song is ostensibly about his souring relationship with his former Fleetwood Mac bandmates (“I’m outta pity/ I’m outta time/ Another city/ Another crime”), so perhaps sturdy performances like this show his ex-collaborators he’s still got it.
Speaking recently on his exit from Fleetwood Mac, Buckingham put the blame once again at Stevie Nicks’ feet. “I think others in the band just felt that they were not empowered enough, individually, for whatever their own reasons, to stand up for what was right,” he Buckingham. “And so, it became a little bit like Trump and the Republicans.”
