The band of my life is nearing the end, so how much longer did we have, anyway? Well, maybe a (very) few years? But someone f*cked that up. It's going to be too late, now.

Thanks a lot, Old Goat Breath.

I see the motivation behind the tweet as being a deserved response to the obnoxious "We look forward to our day in court" statement, a statement that (even though it was most certainly contrived by the lawyers with zero input from actual band members) implied a clear subtext of not only "We are in the right and he is in the wrong" but also "Lindsey is a liar." Even if the statement was a standard flourish for litigation tactics, the message it sent to the world served as yet another misrepresentation and denegration of Lindsey's position (just like Stevie's fake news broadcast on national TV in saying that "one of us wanted to wait a year" to go on the road).

Whatever it is, itís another sad moment in the disgraceful end of the band.

The fact they couldnít get it together to give fans the gift of a final tour continues to blow my mind.

They're getting too old for us to wait for a reunion, THAT NOW SHOULDN'T HAPPEN. One of them is going to die, anyway.
I do not want them to ever re unite. It's getting to be a joke. Christine's voice is more then shot now, sorry to say. Stevie and Lindsey can still hold their own on stage but after this tour is over it would be another few years (if they were to reconcile and I don't see that happening) and they would be in their 80's. JUST NO

Which means they KNOW they are totally in the wrong and Lindsey did NOTHING to deserve this. This was goat/tambourine breaths final power play.

i think John's email response to him was actually a respectable thing to do. he answered, and basically gave him a heads up. so LB and John i don't think will have a real problem. and it sounds like he and Chris won't either.

with Mick and Stevie, seems like it will depend on them. i will probably never understand how forgiving LB can be towards them. i guess therapy, meditation, etc help a lot. i'll stay angry for him!

I do expect everyone to go silent during the settlement talks. On Lindsey's tour, after the lawsuit was announced, Lindsey did not even say the words Fleetwood Mac on stage.
he didn't say them before it was announced either.

audiences are doing good job for him though!

I think John is less guilty in all this mess than Christine. At least he answered Lindsey's calls. She should have answered too and told him she wasn't allowed to talk instead of playing innocent on that CBS interview saying: "I didn't know what was going on. I was in England".

yup, that's the most logical.

yes it's still on the docket.

yup, exactly. that's all that tweet is saying.

except to people who are willingly putting their heads in the sand - or trying to convince others they should . KB tweet is a reply to that FM publicist statement they issued saying "we deny everything! we will see you in court!"

apparently they stopped denying real fast.

Tough to deny when they are stepping in it every time they opened their mouths. But you are so right Elle. I think I am in the minority, but I do hold Christine as accountable as the rest of them. Although LB's comment that she was fragile is interesting, she's a big girl, playing in the big leagues, she needs to own this. John doesn't speak so it is what it is. Stevie and Mick will own it. Oh they will spin a tale that GPS and The Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz collectively couldn't help you follow, but they will own it. This is the band of my life. If it wasn't so sad, I'd be lapping the drama up. But I can't. It really is disgusting.

It's the worst way.

I'll bet she has no idea how much she f*cked up the ending of the band that many of us have followed our entire lives. She doesn't care. She's the boss.

May she get terminal cooter itch!

Question

Okay, where did I miss that John had communicated with Lindsey and that Lindsey called Christine fragile? Like Brandon, Iíve been severely limiting my Mac news these days.

I know itís my hopeless romantic nature, but I see a crack of hope in these developments. Stevie has shown her dominance, Lindsey has gotten his break from the cash grab, and undeniably all have experienced a paradigm shift. Certainly could make for one blowout farewell tour... almost so perfect as to be planned. Certainly shakes off the staleness that had set in!
