Peace and happiness, my foot.
They had too much money to lose if they fired him back in the 70s and 80s, that's for sure. Now that they don't want to get creative anymore, it was the perfect time to kick him out.

As painfully as it is to admit it, I think they never truly cared for him.

Well, one of them for sure doesn't want to be creative, probably because she can't create anymore.
I think the others, given the chance would be happy to create, as we saw with BM.
And I agree with you, it is looking like they never truly cared about Lindsey, and I agree that this feels painful inside my gut.

"For my conscience, that's a good thing to remember," Fleetwood laughed.
For his CONSCIENCE ???

Oh, my- if I were the interviewer I would have taken a LARGE step back after he said that, so that when the hole opened up in the ground and Mr. Fleetwood got sucked down it at the speed of light in his much-deserved handbasket , the suction didn't take me with it.

What a shameless huckster.

When you watch the maturity and carefree creativity of the Buckingham McVie studio sessions, all you can do is to pretend that the whole band disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle soon after and that was that for Fleetwood Mac.

I can’t stand Mick Fleetwood. The dynamics of the band are screwed up. The least talented people control Fleetwood Mac.

To this day I wish that album was released under the Fleetwood Mac banner. The making of the album behind the scenes with four of them was classic. They should have just said Stevie decided to sit this one out.

Her Royal Highness probably did her usual thing of threatening to bad-mouth the album in the press if they did. That's her go-to position. She seems to think she has a lot more influence in the media than she does; she doesn't understand how social media works and that people aren't sitting at home waiting to see what Rolling Stone or People magazine reports on what she thinks. Now, maybe these days if Beyonce bad-mouthed an album people would be all over it Not to say Stevie wouldn't get coverage-- the media LOVES a kerfuffle -- but she wouldn't have any impact on sales, because no one sells many albums now anyway. Her time as a major influencer has passed, but no one wants to tell her lest they get fired. She's at best a lovable voice from a past era, dare I say, a "legend". But no one but a certain demographic will care what she thinks about much of anything these days. Indeed, there's a whole movement now on social media to dump on Baby Boomers (of which I am not one) where an older person says something and the repsonse is, "OK Boomer" which translates to, "yeah whatever, you old fart who had everything handed to you and who understands nothing about today's world, thanks for your useless opinion"

Stevie could have threatened to bad-mouth the album and the answer could easily be, "OK, boomer" (if that had been a thing then)

I bet Stevie’s niece thinks “OK Boomer” all the time, but doesn’t say it.
