i know, that continues to be so puzzling to me. it's like people are saying "i'm happy but you can't be". :shrug:

The folks who are casting those votes are saying they want to see FM go on without her, either in the short term or permanently.

I will reiterate my puzzlement as to why so many Stevie fans seem to have a need to try to convince the rest of us that their opinions are facts.

Stevie fans get to enjoy her as a solo act. The fivesome are contracted to tour by 2018. So what's the big deal? Part of the reason many of them don't want FM to continue--even for just one album and small tour--is because, deep down they, like possibly Stevie herself, are a little afraid of how well the temporary lineup will be received.

someone mentioned in one of these threads a parallel to the Journey without Steve Perry. while not necessarily right comparison, it can be as good as any. apparently many years in without Steve Perry, they are still selling arenas.

Ultimately, I don't get the logic that they shouldn't do a Fleetwood Mac album without Stevie Nicks because it won't sell very well. Hell, a Stevie Nicks album WITH Stevie Nicks doesn't sell very well anymore. Sales aren't what's motivating them. Lindsey and Christine feel inspired to make new music, and Mick and John have been along for the ride.
