Lindsey Buckingham has delighted Fleetwood Mac fans by hinting at a 2012 reunion.
The band has been on hiatus since touring in 2004 but the singer/songwriter suggests he and bandmates Mick Fleetwood, John MCVie and Stevie Nicks may get together for dates and a new album next year.
He tells RollingStone.com, "We're doing something for sure. I wouldn't be shocked if it was a tour and possibly an album. We'll have to wait and see. Nothing is on the books right now.
"With Fleetwood Mac, there's a lot of landmines out there politically and it's hard to get everybody on the same page at the same time - but I think this might be one of those years where everyone will want to do the same thing. Whatever that is.
"Working in a band is a lot like what I imagine making movies is like. It's political and it takes a lot of verbalisation to get from point A to point B. When I work alone, it's more like painting. You are one with the canvas and it's a subconscious, meditative process."
Fleetwood Mac's last album, Say You Will, was released in 2003.
