(CNN) - It's another soap opera for Fleetwood Mac.

Lindsey Buckingham is suing his former bandmates, after he was kicked out of the group.

The guitarist-singer was told earlier this year that the band was going to tour without him.

He said he is ready and willing to take the stage and, 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 that same time, bassist John McVie and his wife, keyboardist Christine McVie, divorced.

Despite those two 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 over 40 million copies across the globe.
