Maybe it will happen when you see them perform live? Iím looking forward to it. I think the band will all be in a good mood also since the drama is gone.

Going to be honest, at this point, I have no plans to go to a show. I've seen them at least 10 times over the years. Hands down my favorite band ever. TPH close second so you'd think I'd be a bit overjoyed by the change up.
It's inevitable I will see them perform (snippets on line, Ellen, etc). I love Stevie (have seen her solo many times) and love Lindsey. Will fully support their solo efforts.
The manipulation and back pedaling as to what went down isn't sitting well with me as a fan right now. I feel the "perceived" dishonesty around it to be disrespectful to fans who've supported them (like myself) over the years. If they all would have just been forthright from the beginning, I might have a different view. Dramatic perhaps, but hell, it's FM so it's kind of fitting

I get it. Itís totally your choice. I kind of feel like no one is telling any details about what happened with Lindsey because it isnít pretty and it really isnít any of our business. I know Fleetwood Mac has always been full of drama but now theyíre 70 years old. I donít think they need that anymore. They just need to perform their hearts out and keep us fans interested. Everyone knows I am mostly a Stevie fan however I love Christine. I love the rhythm section of John and Mick. I was never much of a Lindsey fan just because of his personality. I really am not trying to be rude with that he just always rubbed me the wrong way. Heís an awesome guitar player and I hope he does well on his own. His solo stuff just doesnít interest me.

Maybe there were 1 or 2 ring leaders but I believe all 5 of them are to blame here. This chapter just adds to the drama! Saddens me this is how it will all potentially end and I do think it leaves an unattractive "footnote" on the band. But like I said--it's FM so the drama is a given

Yeah no one wanted to see them end this way. I think sometimes you just reach your point of no return. I think things are said in anger that can never be taken back. I guess itís time to go onward and upward at least for another tour and hopefully another few new songs out or even another album.

Gone? To where? Oh, you mean FIRED? Yep, fired by the Dreams girl.

Sorry, but I can't be grateful for the way they treated one of their bandmates.
And they're doing it for the money. All of it.

If there is one thing I know itís Lindsey is not a victim. He may play a martyr on television and in concert but that mouth got him into too much trouble this time.

We can't dismiss the Ellen show as mere 'daytime' fare obviously (it's as big as or even bigger than the Oprah show was, right?), but I think it's an interesting choice. Maybe I'm wrong, but ever since SYW, the band's 'tour launch' TV appearances have always been on the major breakfast shows like GMA, right? And whereas the morning show appearances are rather drawn out and involve awkward live interviews, any talking appearances on 'Ellen' tend to be very scripted and very brief. So my take on it is that they knew their post-firing interviews had been disastrous and that 'Ellen' would be a safer bet on that front. They might even forego the talking part altogether (like when Lindsey appeared on 'Ellen' for Under the Skin).

Does Ellen always air mid-afternoon, or will it air in the morning somewhere?
