I think Peacekeeper was new for SWY, too.

Wasn't there supposed to be some kind of 50th anniversary compilation coming? Maybe the two or three new tracks will be on that, much like "The Chain."

If there was then it's a year late but then so was the Rumours 35th and Peter Gabriel and Paul Simon were similarly guilty with anniversarial reissues of So and Graceland.

you know, when a dog does its business people use the expression "he's leaving his calling card" on your lawn.

In other words, a calling card can be a turd.... in any sense of the word.

and how sad that the whole EP time is being swept under the rug as it never existed now.


ENCORE! THAT WAS ****ING AMAZING! A great new song by Lindsey(FM). Too bad Stevie didn't want to participate in some new Mac creativity. Boo Stevie(Yoko)!

Stevie only contributed one track to the EP because of the death of her mother she said.

Campbell talks about the plans for Heartbreakers to tour with different singers in Tom's place, following up by possibly recording new material with some other songwriters (hmmm, Nicks maybe?) and tour that new Heartbreakers material. so doesn't sound like there's much plan for MC with FM after the currently booked tour is over. and any new material MC would work on seems pretty clear would not be FM.

I really think heís a stand up guy and appreciates and respects the legacy of his band and their legions of fans. I never really thought there would be new music out of this bunch, and I have to wonder if mike and Neil believe and acknowledge this is a one gig event for them. With all the innuendo out over the last few days, whether itís true or not, it just goes from worse to worse for this band in terms of press and PR. Mike is preserving his legacy. Much respect there

on a flip side - this somewhat tone-deaf quote is also in that interview:

In other words - I could never replace Tom Petty. But Lindsey Buckingham? No sweat.



Well, regardless of that faux pas, I'm glad he's bailing after this tour (if that is indeed true). He knows he's not really a member Fleetwood Mac, and given the chance to make music with his REAL band, the Heartbreakers - of course he's going to leap at it.

Get out as soon as you can, Mike! Don't spend years trapped in this travesty of a band! You can still toss Stevie a couple of instrumental tracks from a safe distance, if she ever wants to make new music again.

They might as well save their money and hire a sideman to fill the gap. Even the biggest name won't be able to fill Lindsey's shoes, and the ones who are really worth their salt won't want to attach themselves to FM anyway.

Or maybe they'll keep Mike in the band and let him tour concurrently!

Tone deaf and disrespectful to an enormous degree. I never thought he was long for FM despite how many times Mick said anything to the contrary. I believe now both Neil and Mike have said theyíve got some nearish term plans once the Disasterous Evening with Fleetwood Mac ends. Just about everything Mick has said about this lineup has been contradicted. Itís amazing (and almost enjoyable) to watch this train wreck unfold.

He can't completely replace Lindsey--otherwise Finn wouldn't be here too. Mike should be running for the hills and totally agree he knows he's not a real member. Legacy matters to him and he should run back to the Heartbreakers as fast as he can.

I think that's a whole lot of tarot card reading from an article titled "We'll play together again someday."
I do hope you get to see Lindsey with FM again if that's what you really want.

I guess the big difference is that one guy died suddenly and the other is alive and kicking. Although reading posts around here might bring you to question which is which.

I hardly think he is trying to and we've seen absolutely no evidence of that.
