Mick's loyalty is about as deep as a birdbath.

Mick is a f*cking scumbag. Truth be told, he's worse than $tevie. He'd desecrate Biddy's grave for a nickel!

We dont know for certain what was said behind the scene's regarding John's cancer at that time.

Just maybe, John initiated for the tour to still go ahead without him, wanting the band to find a suitable replacement Bass player, instead of cancelling. So the band considered this option, Lindsey put his foot down said replacing John would be wrong on all levels..

Yes, me too. As someone posted, we have 1/2 of the story right now; Lindsey’s interpretation of what happened. We’ll see what the other four have to say, or 6 if the newbies chime in.

Honestly, I've felt the same way for some time now. At least in Stevie's case, her actions are a consequence of deeply (wrongly and immaturely) held convictions regarding Lindsey. With Mick, there are no such complex reasons. He probably wakes up every day and has to check his bank balance before he can decide on how he'll feel.

One other thing I'll add is that I'm sure no one is shocked LBCM was originally intended as an FM album, as has been speculated from the start. But seeing it spelled out at last definitely makes me feel like the project was on Stevie's shortlist of provocations. If it had truly been something Lindsey and Chris cooked up on their own, sure, I could see Stevie being a bit jealous. But that it was an FM album she said no to, only to have them solider on without her, takes all the power out of her hands. I think she realized going forward she might have problems with the two of them banding together on future Mac related issues. Alone, she knows that Christine is not a threat in her "fragile" state. But the possibility of Lindsey having Chris's ear probably pushed her over the edge. She's never going to concede an inch to that man, and her whole life right now seems dedicated to letting him know that.

I've said it before, but, she may have won the game of Fleetwood Mac, but he won the game of life(at least in comparison to her miserable life).

And $he HATES it. Bitter hag.

I agree with this. Regardless of whether you like Stevie or not, she and Lindsey’s relationship offstage has seemed entirely antagonistic since SYW at least. She is sensitive and does not take kindly to mocking from Lindsey. What I do not understand is why the rest of the band would go along with this and move forward so quickly without Lindsey if it was an impulsive spur of the moment decision as described here. I’ve been waiting for Lindsey’s side of the story and I hope that Fleetwood Mac gives some explanation for their actions as well.

My takeaways from the lawsuit:

1. Why is Christine in a fragile state? That jumped out to me.

2. Does it read to anyone else like Lindsey actually still wants to tour with them??

I think it only has to do with the lawsuit. If he's being cheated out of the money, he has to show that he's still ready, willing, and able. Now pay me!

Well, yeah, exactly! We have been telling that for the past 8 months. But he sure "must have done something wrong".
They ignored his calls asking for an explanation, and that's a FACT.
So, they can't argue with that. I also can't wait to hear their response, because they have nothing against him.

I wouldn't be surprised if she mentions him. After all, she's clearly insane.

Stevie does not take kindly to Lindsey being married to another woman and having children with her. Period.

I think Lindsey doesn't want the legacy to end this way, like he claimed in his mail. They could never tour again. Not without him taking care of every move in front of Stevie.
