Lindsey Buckingham Wife
Lindsey met his future wife Messner, in 1996, when she worked as a photographer for a shoot for one of his solo albums, according to an article for Town and Country. The rocker once told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he waited a long time to find a wife due to his rock star lifestyle.
“I had a lot of crazy girlfriends, and a lot of that was just an outgrowth of the lifestyle we were all leading,” he said. “I did see a lot of friends who were parents and spouses — back in previous decades — who weren’t really there and kind of screwed up their kids and were not there for their family situations.”
“So I waited and I was lucky enough to meet someone relatively late…it’s worked out really well. I got all that other garbage out of the way.”

Kristen Messner On Stevie Nicks
In 2018, Lindsey Buckingham was blindsided when he was let go from Fleetwood Mac. He was replaced by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell and Crowded House singer Neil Finn. After the band’s new lineup made their TV debut on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, Lindsey’s wife expressed disappointment that things with the band had gotten so off track.
“I was just sad,” Kristen told Rolling Stone. “I was thinking, ‘How did they get here?’”
Of the other band members, which include Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, and Lindsey’s ex, Stevie Nicks, Kristen said, they were “a family of sorts” and that her three children “called them aunts and uncles.” Kristen later called out founding Fleetwood Mac member Mick Fleetwood on Twitter, writing, that while he was so busy “telling the world how ‘unhappy’ the band was,” no one told Lindsey.
“He’s still wondering what happened,” she wrote in 2019, adding that everyone in the band “really suck.”
According to Vulture, Lindsey did eventually reconcile with his former bandmate.
