Also regarding the loss of momentum and inability to extend the dance tour causing resentment...

Who knows how the other 4 felt, but I'd venture to say that it actually opened the golden window for Stevie to restart her solo career. She was back out on the road behind the Enchanted Box Set, did the millennium shows, and went back to finish TISL which really started before the Dance.

This was before the era of Fleetwood Mac tour resentment/martyrdom coming from Stevie, I don't remember any quotes from Stevie that hinted at any resentment towards Christine.

THAT had to be one of the worst ideas Stevie (and Mick most likely) ever presented. AWFUL!

Is it reported that Mick wanted to replace John for the Fall 2013 Tour? I can't recall a report of Lindsey or Stevie looking to replace John.

I really don’t mind Sheryl but a Version of FM infused with her would be about as cringeworthy as... imagine a set with Soak Up the Sun and Sheryl singing Say You Love Me...about as bad as what eventually happened...

I'd rather have Bekka back. That girl can SING. Best singer FM ever had.

But of course that would show off the other's(all of them) geriatric vocal cords.

It was mentioned in the lawsuit papers. I donít recall if it was ever mentioned who spearheaded that idea, but apparently Lindsey was against the idea.

Oh I enjoy Sheryl as her own artist, but I also agree that it would be just as cringeworthy as what eventually happened anyways.

Iím sure there is one more FM tour that will happen after the financial hit Mick is probably taking with his restaurant during this pandemic. He will need a bail out.

He is surely the biggest LOSER in R&R history.

I'm sure he's lost 50 fortunes.

What a f*cking DUMBASS.

She offered but they refused since she wouldnít tour.
So we lost a big chance to hear her voice -a bit better- in SYW...

Chris has a great voice too! Her style is simply wonderful, but Bekka really rocked!

Chris was great! But like the other two, there's not much left these days.

Bekka on Blow By Blow? My god, she's AMAZING!

I went and saw her a couple of times in Nashville, maybe 3 years ago, at B.B. Kings, doing a full 3-4 hour night with a full band. F*cking awesome! I met her and talked to her for a few minutes the first time. She was very nice, and very easy to talk to. I requested Dreaming the Dream from Time, and she said they didn't know it, and was surprised that I knew of it.

I meant to bring Time back the next time for her to sign, but it was at my other house out of state, and I forgot to bring it.

I have a producer friend in Nashville, who says her ego is massive, though. And so is her Mother's(Bonnie Bramlett, in case you didn't know). He said if you put them together in the same room, it's impossible to fit anything else in the room!

But she was as sweet as could be, to me. She kept walking out to the sidewalk by herself, to smoke while the band was playing a song without her.

I think more has been made of this than is warranted. It seemed more to do with having an alternative if they couldnít get out of commitments, since John isnít a vocalist. Iím sure they have insurance, but still not a bad idea to have a backup plan. However, it would have only been temporary.
