Itís not a contest. Lindsey wasnít viable as a solo artist at that time. His album tanked in spite of heavy promotion and the leadership change at the label didnít favor him going forward as a solo artist. It also didnít favor Fleetwood Mac going forward without him and Stevie, especially if Christine wasnít going to do an extensive tour. Stevie also hit a low point in her career and needed to reinvent herself on a grand scale. A reunion was the only way any of them had a chance to have careers going forward.

Youíd be surprised. Some of the small venues come up with serious cash to get a a couple of big name acts. Iíve seen some small venues come up with over $30,000 for a band.

Iíd be curious to see the itinerary at that time. It could have been a pickup gig. In any case, I never faulted the venues and tours they did in 94-95 because they didnít have an album of new material out. Since it was a new lineup with none of the vocalists in the classic lineup and they didnít have anything released except one song, I donít know what people expected them to play.
