Of course neither of them are the production wizard Lindsey is and Billy isn't a virtuoso on guitar. However Rick is an amazing guitarist in his own right and does things that Lindsey either hasn't, can't or doesn't do.
I always thought that was tacky. I mean, how many musicians did it take for him to replace Fleetwood Mac in 1993?

In fact, I don't recall Lindsey ever playing slide guitar.
He played slide on the studio version of “Monday Morning.”

ETA: He also did it live early on
On and on it will always be, the rhythm, rhyme, and harmony.
