Well said, Jeremy. I hope your post will help others be more open-minded. I think people need to chill out a bit. There are some who prefer X, some who prefer Y, some who prefer both and some who prefer neither. All should be treated with respect.
"Addicted Ledgie" Sanne2 uses the following quote from John Mcvie as her sig: “Remember, in the grand scheme of things, what we do for a living is not very important. After all, we’re not curing cancer here.”

The lineup featuring Mike Campbell & Neil Finn is a Post-Rumours lineup of the band.


After 14 yrs visiting a site I once enjoyed which covered a band I once loved following, I now ‘Say Goodbye’ to both

Pre or post, they are two different bands with the same terrific rhythmn section deserving the name.

As for me, I like Fleetwood Mac...I have since the beginning, through all the personnel changes, right up to today. Do I have preferences of incarnations? Sure. I've gotten to think that due to message boards like these have actually caused my appreciation for certain incarnations of Fleetwood Mac to diminish due to the apparent Idolatry of certain members (in my mind, it's some of the latter day incarnations members).

Then I think, well, I'm just as bad as they are because I'm guilty every so often of that same idolatry, only of different members (then the "Snob" in me is unleashed..."MY Idol is better than YOUR Idol" type thing). But, would I have even thought about idolizing band members if it hadn't been for the Internet & fan message boards? Would I get into these virtual verbal arguments had it not been for technology? Probably, but not nearly as much, nor on such a public scale.

Thank you, Jeremy, for keeping my thinking grounded & centered.

I agree completely with that. In fact Wetcamelfood and myself have had exactly this discussion off-board a while back. As much as I love the post '75 mac, I find myself always trying to keep the lesser known members in the memories of the Mac fans and perhaps I neglect the Stevie/Lindsey band more than I should because of this.
