Well, I wouldn't want Lindsey to go back after this sh*t show, so it may has well be him as anyone.:rolleyes:

That's some damned FUGLY wall paper behind the bar, and in the dining room! Makes me think of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds!

This could be just as much about Crowded House as Fleetwood Mac. Liam lives in L.A. as does Mitchell Froom, both currently in Crowded House. I think Fleetwood Mac was a factor, but not THE factor.

I think we have seen the last of Fleetwood Mac.....sad to say

Clearly touring with FM pays off handsomely.

The Googles say he's worth 30 million. I'm sure he didn't get most of that in the past couple of years.

Agreed Homer.. Article also says he had a house in LA already so seems like this one is a bit of an upgrade for him. Not only does FM pay more handsomely, but I suspect makes one a bit more relevant. Maybe he's hoping for/planning more work. Not with FM--I do agree, they are DONE

lol or maybe not? we were just talking in another chat how he could apparently only afford a "measly" 4M house, not one of Kristen Buckingham's 20M ones.

guess FM doesn't pay their contractors that much. ;)

yup, he used his newly-found Mac-related "visibility" to stand up a new version of Crowded House. they were supposed to tour same venues and headlining same festivals Mac did last summer in Europe this summer. of course a lot of that may end up getting cancelled now.

yup, right in Lindsey's neighborhood.

they may end up all bumping into each other on their social distancing hikes around the neighborhood.

I was thinking the same. A 4M house in LA isn't that much money.

He might. :shrug:

Neil seemed to find more bang for his buck elsewhere.

I seem to recall either LB or Trent Reznor mentioning they were in the same neighborhood. And didn't KB mention crossing paths with John's wife Julie as they were also close by?

i don't remember about Trent, i do remember Lindsey saying that Mitchell Froom is his neighbor.

and yes, John is LB's neighbor too.

i couldn't care less where and what Neil is buying. but if Neil is coming to work in Froom's studio, that is in the same neighborhood as LB.
