Where did the illness start? For me I can deal through Landslide. Then the Crowded House crap gets me uneasy, Tom Petty I start heaving (and I LOVE Petty and the Heartbreakers)....and the live 2019 GYOW makes me puke. These Strange Times is just icing on the cake

I did almost heave during Tom Petty. I'm surprised she didn't do a Prince tribute, too. She has no concept of the legacy of the band. Only her own legacy. This is why I love Christine so much. She's a player, and a band member first, solo second.

But but, she played Black Magic Woman and discovered it was a Fleetwood Mac song and made it about the year of the woman!!!

But didn't she discover it when she went out and bought all the records and told Lindsey, we really need to join this band????

Recording the albums were soooooo hard because of the breakups. I couldn't just close the doooorrrrr on the relationship we had to seeee each other daily!! I had to sing his/her sonnnnggggs!!

I don't know what interesting things they could come up with at this point but their narratives are stale and tired.
Oh let me count the ways.....

Why was Lindsey fired Christine? Why did you not speak up?

What was it like touring with Stevie during the Klonopin years? Did anyone try and intervene?

How much was Lindsey paid off?

Why did you Christine block Bob Welch from the Rock N Roll Hall of fame?

How does the band feel about pre-recorded tracks during live shows?

John and Christine what did you guys really talk about during Stevie's long intro to Gypsy on the "On with the show" tour?



Hold my beer cause there could be a lot more questions coming

god I'd love to shoot her up with truth serum and ask her those questions!!!

I think Stevie is George Costanza....she believes her own sh*t she spews("it's not a lie, Jerry, if you really believe it"). So asking her would do no good.

I'd like Lindsey truth serum answers, too...

I thought I had found it because I heard Monday Morning. Turns out Monday Morning was being played on the Crosby Stills and Nash channel. What in the world??

The actual channel was a Mystery to Me. After much agonized searching, I found it is 743.

Oh well of COURSE Id love to hear those but I was being somewhat realistic. Nobody would have the balls to ever drop any of those questions on any of them. It would be amazing!

Having a cup of coffee, waking up listening and...

All Over Again came on.

It's beautiful to listen to. I have to admit, her songs are great on Time. I just don't like her voices on the keys in this era. That whole trolly train vibe doesn't always hold.

I have the station on quite a bit. I concur with the others who expressed dismay with the station playing "influences" (every five songs or so). Don't need them, as Fleetwood Mac has plenty of material to fill the space.

Fortunately, on the app, I can go back an hour or more when they play songs by other artists. I'm very pleased to have the station (even though it's just a replay of the programming they had in '18). I haven't heard any of the "previously unreleased" songs from 25 Years -- The Chain ("Love Shines", "Heart Of Stone", etc.). Also disappointed not to have heard "As Long As You Follow".

The Stones channel isn’t great, either. They play very little from the Brian Jones era and they play that new song (which sounds like a rehash of “Miss You”) about once every 45 minutes or so.
