It's been a whirlwind of a week for Fleetwood Mac since announcing the exit of Lindsey Buckingham and entrance of Mike Campbell and Neil Finn.

Campbell issued a statement about joining the group and stayed humble by recognizing the contributions and talent Buckingham had.

He said, 

"Though I was sad to hear Lindsey Buckingham is no longer with Fleetwood Mac, I am honored and excited to join the band. Lindsey is one of my favorite musical artists. A true genius at songwriting and guitar playing. I intend to honor his songs while at the same time bring my musicality to the band. After one rehearsal I can tell it’s going to be an amazing collaboration. I am also very happy to have an opportunity to play with Neil Finn, who I greatly admire. Fleetwood Mac not only has one of the greatest rhythm sections in rock history, it also has two of the finest voices and songwriters in Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie. I am looking forward to the tour with great anticipation."
