Lindsey Buckingham was told to "Go Your Own Way," but he says he isn't "Second Hand News."

Buckingham is suing his former bandmates after he was kicked out of the band Fleetwood Mac.

Earlier this year, the guitarist-singer was told the band was going to tour without him. He said he is ready and willing to take the stage and that as a result should be paid his fair share of the profits.

Fleetwood Mac has had its share of bumpy moments over the decades.

Buckingham and long-time girlfriend Stevie Nicks ended their relationship in the late 1970s.

Around the same time, bassist John McVie and his wife keyboardist Christine McVie divorced.

Despite the break-ups, all four remained in the band with drummer Mick Fleetwood.

Shortly after that the group released its legendary album "Rumours," which has sold more than 40 million copies internationally.
