Fleetwood Mac fans might want to hold off on plans to celebrate a 2012 tour and new album from the legendary band. Although various news reports have claimed the band mates will make music together in 2012, Lindsey Buckingham says now that may well not be the case.

“If I knew the real story, believe me, I would tell you. I wish I could. I would like to know what I’m doing next year,” the guitarist tells Ultimate Classic Rock. “If you had asked me two months ago, I would have said ‘Absolutely.’ Now I’m not sure.”

One reason, said Buckingham, is that vocalist Stevie Nicks is enjoying the success of her just-released solo album ‘In Your Dreams’ which has been critically lauded as her best music in a decade. In addition, Buckingham said his own schedule is uncertain. He is currently touring behind his just-released solo album ‘Seeds We Sow.’ (Read our review of ‘Seeds We Sow.’)

“There may be another leg of [my solo tour] this year. That remains to be seen,” he said. “Stevie is doing a lot of different things. She is having fun [touring and supporting] this album. I don’t begrudge her that. She enjoyed the process of recording it, and I don’t she had a good process of [recording an] album in a long, long time…”

Yet Buckingham is clear that he expects to work with Fleetwood Mac again, even if it is not as soon as next year.

“Yes, Fleetwood Mac will do something in the future,” he said, adding he expects to work solely with Nicks again, too, although there are no concrete plans for that either. “There’s just nothing on the books right now…This is a time for me to take stock all of the things I’ve done in my life, all the people I’ve been down the road with, and all the things I’ve experienced…and just appreciate them. When you revisit them, you want all of these things to be in a place where they have dignity.”
