"He should have just accepted the bands terms." "Stevie should have just gotten on with the show and dealt with it or left if there was that big a problem."

If you ask me, I think both played a part. Clearly, I'm sure, Lindsey prefers his own material to that of someone else's (rightly so) and probably didn't want to litter the set with pre-75 stuff (stuff more than likely that would be replacing his songs and not Chris or Stevie's), and Stevie likely put her foot down about the bickering and his controlling nature which I'm sure exists in some fashion and probably gave the ultimatum that likely occurred ("I can't take it anymore, it's him or me"). As much as they elevate each other musically, they tear each other down emotionally.
Exactly. He played a role in his ouster too. You don’t get fired after 40 years for “nothing.” Even if fans (who were not there) disagree about what the “something” was, disagree with the band’s actions, or disagree about the statement the band released about “the something.”

All they said was "He wouldn't tour". It was refuted yet people don't want to believe that.

He clearly did something to piss them off for it to get to the point of firing. However, Stevie obviously pulled the final trigger instead of working it out or compromising.

Because it was not truly refuted by Lindsey or the band. Only third-party people and fans who use that video with fans. If he was fired with absolutely no reason I think he would have been more outspoken more quickly. I think something larger happened to bring it to this point. Which is why he was silent for so long and why the rest of them gave that lame reason, probably both for legal reasons. Who knows.

This is so not in the wrong forum. this is about a member of the Rumors five that got fired. If you can post about the new band here you can certainly post about Lindsey As it pertains to the rumors five. This wasn’t about his solo work.

Ehh, I wouldn't worry too much about it. People who attended the first two shows said they had filled in nicely by showtime.

Its about a meet and greet at a Lindsey solo concert.
His career is POST Fleetwood Mac no matter how hard you try to hold on to the past.
This thread has 23 posts and still nothing specific WHAT Lindsey was asked and WHAT was his response. The entire thread started "It was all Stevie"

I think it's pretty obvious that he wanted to do his joint tour, they didn't want to let him and so Stevie took the opportunity and ran with it. I was convinced that's what happened when we first found out about this and with all the little things that have come out since then, it couldn't be clearer.

WRONG This thread is about why Lindsey was fired from the rumours five, get it now? I am not talking about his solo career I am talking about his career with Fleetwood Mac and why it no longer exists because of a certain tambourine witch.

You should have titled the thread "Why Lindsey was fired"
You titled it "Lindsey speaks at Meet and Greet" That is a solo tour meet and greet POST Fleetwood Mac.
But enough of that. Still no one has posted anything Lindsey was asked and what he said. This is just a rehash of emotions why Lindsey was fired.

So you're saying that we followers of Fleetwood Mac enjoy drama?

That's a tough cookie to swallow!

Of course that really wouldn't have worked either since there is no explanation of why.
