i will buy or be there for anything Lindsey does going foward - whether it's a new album he has in the waiting, whether he's capable of just playing guitar or full on touring with singing too, or other projects he may be working on.

the rest of the band? i don't plan to ever see anything with Mick in it again. or Stevie. right now i feel the same about Christine and John, but if there is BuckVie 2 i would change my mind about Christine in a second.

Done. Can't even entertain giving up my hard earned money, or time to entertain it.
Lindsey solo or collaborating with anyone other than Mick, Stevie, Chris or John, I would be there. I don't think I can get behind Buckvie 2--after this latest article, I actually find Mick and Christine more disgusting than Stevie.

they're all covered in sh&t as far as I'm concerned.

Maybe for a lot of people, me included, Chris was the biggest surprise.

I couldn't give Chris the pass so many people were wiling to give. When the lawsuit came out and Lindsey said something about her being "sensitive" I considered, but then no. I am not sure what he meant with that comment, but she went along with the lie. Compromised her integrity and trashed LB in the process. He freakin should have sued for more !

Well, of course I will support Lindsey, and only Lindsey. But I can't support him if he chooses to join this people again. Sorry. Same if he does BuckVie2.

The rest are dead to me.

I still love this band and always will. I did not see this line up in concert on this tour but I would have considered it if they were promoting a new album. I would buy a new album by this lineup for sure. I will continue to support Lindsey’s solo work and pray that he recovers from his surgery. It sucks what went down but this band is the soundtrack of my life and “ I Can’t Go Back”. 😎

The only one I'm interested now is Lindsey. FM present day doesn't exist to me. I'll always cherish the music made before Lindsey's unfair dismissal. But the rest of them can go take a flying leap. DONE!

I just had a discussion with my wife about this, we have seen 3 concerts under the new regime - vegas , san diego, and atlantic city ... notice the party city connection (even though MSG is in our backyard) - one of the reasons we went to this shows ... her words were very simply put

fleetwood mac without lindsey is like the stones without mick

end of conversation

I like her solo albums well enough. Street Angel and Rock-A-Little are my least favorite. Wild Heart is my favorite, because her vocals were on fire.

TISL was a slow burn. It was tuneless. The songs just droned on and on with no beat and I wrote it off early, but then I revisited it about two years in and it really grew on me. It's mood-invoking.

The fact that I was attracted to her sound before I was even aware of FM tells me that she did indeed possess an indefinable spark. I mean without knowing who the vocalist was on Magnet and Steel, Gold, or even on the icky Sweet Love, I was drawn to her. Listen to the woman on Midnight Wind and try and deny she can be mesmerizing.

Of course, I do have to say the same thing about Lindsey. Gold and Magnet and Steel. That's him and I recognized the production value in those songs without having a clue that Lindsey Buckingham even existed.

But Stevie, as she said, even in Fritz, the boys played their hearts out, but folks kept asking about the mousy-brown haired girl. She caught their eye somehow. Of course, we should point out that FM was not the first time that Lindsey took his girlfriend along for the ride. Lindsey was the one who was offered a record deal in those early days and, as he did on NYE 1974, he made Stevie a part of that, when they left Fritz behind. The musicians gravitated towards Lindsey and the rest were drawn in by Stevie's charm.

I guess that merits her being in the RRHOF.
