Petty was a huge star. Few people in the media even know who Keith Olsen is.
nice try at an excuse but no - band members had social media posts about Petty, Prince, Frey.

the fact that Keith Olsen was so hugely influential and significant for Fleetwood Mac but not nearly as well known is exactly the reason why they should publicly express and acknowledge him.

i don't care what they feel personally, we already know they are not nice people, but it was the right thing to do.

"kind of weird: a tribute to the dearly departed from a band that can treat its living like trash"
