** The original studio version of "Silver Springs" ran over 8 minutes, which is why it initially got flagged to be left off ''Rumours'', since for optimal mastering in that era an album couldn't run longer than 22:00 a side. Nicks painstakingly agreed to trim it slightly under 5 minutes, with the understanding that this would keep it on the album. When it got left off anyway and was relegated to the BSide of "Go Your Own Way", she understandably wasn't happy.

Dissatisfied with ''Mirage'' and wanting to close on a high note, Buckingham initially began working on some solo material before bringing it to the band and making it a group effort after all. Adding synthesizers to the mix but managing to avoid bland SynthPop hell or soft-rock anaemia, ''Tango In The Night'' turned out to be another massive success which spun off hit singles like Christine's "Hold Me" and "Everywhere", Nicks' "Seven Wonders" and Buckingham's "Big Love"; It ultimately became their second biggest-selling album after ''Music/{{Rumours}}''. With the band in very good standing, Buckingham then left the band after an acrimonious confrontation over his reneging on a commitment to tour, which led to a fight with Nicks (Fleetwood claimed in his 1990 autobiography that Buckingham and Nicks physically assaulted each other).

** The song "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhkUfyWgQmU Life In The Fast Lane]]" by Music/{{Eagles}} is a particularly unflattering look at the highly dysfunctional Buckingham/Nicks relationship.

In 2017, Buckingham and Christine [=McVie=] announced that they would be releasing a collaborative album together under the name ''Buckingham [=McVie=]''. The album is slated to feature contributions from both Fleetwood and John [=McVie=]. This has led to some speculation that the record was intended to be a new Fleetwood Mac album, but Stevie Nicks declined to participate.
