I'm wondering if this is the next thing we will see. Also, do you think Christine would get involved? Has Mick finally released himself from the goat addiction? Does he finally want to make music without having a boss that doesn't say $he's the boss?

If $tevie said $he needs a couple years off, old Dick's got to suck up to someone. '$he's not the boss needs a break, so I'll try to get Lindsey back into the fold'.

It's UNBELIEVABLE that Lindsey would go back. Our Tusk Lindsey would have told them to shove it!:mad::mad::mad:

Hmmm...

I think the only way Mick would make an album or new songs with Lindsey would be if Fleetwood Mac called it quits; Stevie wouldn't want Mick being in a band with Lindsey while she's in a band with Mick.

Perhaps, next year if Stevie's doing a solo tour, Mick could join Lindsey's European Tour as a guest (not an opening act) and sit in on some songs... they could do preBN stuff

I think Chris is done. Her answer in the radio interview about being too old to tour again I think was what she really meant.

She and John should be done. Her voice is gone(not that $tevie and Lindsey are much better), and she's knocking on 80.

Enjoy your remaining years relaxing!!!

You guys are pipe dreaming ;)

Mick is not doing anything that does not involve big money. If he's secretly hoping for a reunion tour, I don't see him doing shows with Lindsey as a way to make it happen. He doesn't want to upset the boss.
I saw Mick's statements of trying to rewrite history, pretending the things he said were not said. Lindsey was always friendly with the band even when he was fired so he never really changed. Mick changed his story about firing Lindsey several times. Now he is trying to make us forget.
Sorry. Wont work with me. Mick needs those meet and greets and the only want to make those happen is now be nice with everyone and pretend in rewriting history.

Mick is a LYING POS. The end.

Which is exactly what Mick did on Stevie’s 1986 tour. He probably doesn’t remember because of booze and drugs. But then Stevie probably doesn’t remember that, either.

That same year in Long Beach, where both Stevie and Lindsey were performing separately, Mick joined Stevie onstage for her set but — this is wild — had nothing to do with Lindsey’s set (even though Lindsey played “I’m So Afraid”). It was fu©king weird.

Same venue and evening? Wow, that one got by me. I don't remember that. And that is pretty f**cking weird.

See, I don't see it as weird (as weird as that sounds). Coming from the band where members took separate limos to shows. As we saw from Red Rocks, Stevie and Mick were high as f**k. I can see both of them dodging Lindsey because of their antics. They probably met backstage or nearby. Mick played a boring bongo in her set. I dont think Lindsey wanted or would ask Mick to join him on stage to slap a bongo :lol:

Dont get me wrong, it would have been cool for both Stevie and Mick to appear on stage during Im So Afraid. But Stevie was not on stage for the song during the Mirage tour LOL. They had other things they were more concerned about at the time ;)

You don't go on someone else's stage unless you are invited. Clearly Lindsey did not invite Mick or Stevie and I can honestly say I don't blame him :eek:

I love all 3 of LB, SN and CM (2nd solo 1984)

those albums held me over from lack of FM albums. Especially in the 80's. By the 90's, I'd given up. I even love The Visitor and I'm Not Me, and Zoo.

Favorite LB album cover :thumbsup:

But musically, Out of the Cradle. I've said it before and I'll say it again... if that or something like it had been his FIRST solo album.... it feels like his solo career may have gone a different track.:shrug:

It's weird for me to love something so....eclectic. I'm more mainstream than that. But I was at the height of my fandom. I f*cking LOVE it.

Wellll... it's... a....long, long time.....So f*cking quirky!

And I totally agree. OOTC OOTG(out of the gate) would have led him down a far more popular path. But quirky guy doesn't show his face much these days.:(

jbrownsjr 07-23-2021 05:28 PM

Yes, after Tusk, nobody trusted him for solo work. He made enemies of the commerce folks.

As I have said many times before…If OOTC was released in 1988 or 1989 this album would have been a mega hit.

HE seems to pray to the commercial gods these days.........do you think he has regrets over not doing so when he was young?

It's obviously better for your bottom line to sell a million, than 10K. But he's single again, so....

The goal should always be to create something you're happy with. Because if it fails, you don't make any $$ nor do you like it!

I love it, too. In my estimation, only OOTC is better, but even then it was Lindsey's quirky originality on Law and Order that formed the blueprint for his solo career. Few homemade projects sound as alternately sophisticated and deranged as this.

It sounds as though it was created by a madman. I love it!

I wish we still had that Lindsey, and not the one who's now willing to be $tevie's neutered lap dog.

Folks, this all ends with a massive reunion concert, and a couple (not many) dates. Probably a couple nights in NYC, Vegas, and LA. For astronomical ticket prices. Unless someone kicks the bucket before that.

ITS ALL TOO PREDICTABLE

I don't want to see it. The minute $tevie and Lindsey hold hands and kiss, I WILL BE SPEWING VOMIT ON ANYONE IN MY VICINITY.

I've said this for years too.

I can only imagine the price for Mick's meet and greets for such a short tour :eek:

I am not a huge Tango fan. But if you could switch out Lindsey's Tango songs for OOTC songs, then I would be converted to be officially a Tango lover. Keep the title track for the album. I can only imagine:

Tango in the Night
Seven Wonders
Everywhere
Countdown
Soul Drifter
Mystified

Little Lies
Welcome to the Room Sara
Doing What I can
Isn't It Midnight
Wrong
When I see you again

Now THIS is a fantastic Mac album. Lindsey's Tango songs are really solo songs anyway.

Sorry but no album with the two Nicks duds still on it can qualify as fantastic. Stevie had been a strong link on the first four albums with Fleetwood Mac .What a precipitous slide.

Of course of course. The object was not to change what existed but switch out Lindsey solo Mac songs for solo songs.

Hypothetically assuming I didn't care for all the drama and betrayals there was, I wouldn't pay to hear those 3 ruined voices anyway. Fleetwood Mac gigs ended in 2014 to me.

Yeah ..it would be like paying to see the Bremen Town Musicians except that they didn't have a goat.

BuckVie was the end for me. They have no voices left, and after the $h*t show of $tevie ~I'm not the bo$$~ getting Lindsey fired, I'm done. I'll just live in their past.

They need to just hang it up, anyway. It's become embarrassing at this point.

Honestly those 2014 gigs were really good and a great way to end it for me. I didn't see BuckVie but am going to Lindsey's show in September. That'll give me a fix. I won't say I won't ever attend anything Fleetwood Mac again but it would be a hard sell and only if it involved the Rumours lineup and not some nonsense with Neil or Mike. YouTube videos of the 2018-19 shows showed me that I didn't miss anything. That most reviews (professional and online) identified the special moments during the show to be Don't Dream It's Over and Free Fallin' was just embarrassing. With 50 years of songs to make a set from, two covers shouldn't be the high point of the show.

Stevie's flex of power to get Lindsey fired was just ridiculous. 70 year olds acting like children.

I’ll just sit by or stand by and engage with attendees on the Ledge, posting non sequiturs or vapid observations, as long as these old legs hold out.
