The thing is, I don’t think Stevie would be fired for whatever it is that Lindsey was fired for. Despite all the articles saying it was the tour schedule, I can’t believe it’s just that. I think part of it was his attitude or unwillingness to compromise, or some other issue we don’t know about. I think he and Mick had a serious argument and there was no seeing eye to eye. But even if we assume it was just about touring: Stevie put her foot down about not doing an album... so Lindsey and Christine put out their own album. But Stevie is always in the mood to tour. She says in tons of interviews that she likes to alternate two years between Fleetwood Mac and two years solo... the exception being when Christine came back in the middle of the world tour a few years ago.

So I don’t think the same problems would arise as did with Lindsey, because Stevie is always interested in touring, as long as it’s not nonstop.

I would probably not see FM without her as she is my favorite in the group but I would be excited for her solo work... and i’d have hope that she’d rejoin someday!

I agree that the backlash would have been less intense. Partially because most of the reactions would have been along the lines of "HUH??" or "LOL" - Nicks is the star, she's what brings most of the fans to the tours, so the idea that Mac might fire her is kind of a non-starter.

But in an alternate reality where say Mac did fire Nicks for refusing to record a new Mac album: I think my reaction would have been "Are they nuts?? She's their biggest draw" but I also wouldn't rant that the band should just breakup instead, or crow that their ticket sales might be down, or refuse to buy any more of their music. I still bought the 'Buckingham McVie' album even though Nicks (obviously) wasn't on it, and Nicks is my favorite of the three.

I think Buckingham fans have every right to be angry that Nicks got a pass for not recording but Buckingham gets canned for not touring - but that's the reality of the band power dynamics now. Tours DO earn the band more money than album sales do, and the real bottom line, and sad reality, is that the Buckingham/Nicks relationship deteriorated too far for them to work together any longer.

Yes, I think you're exactly right about this. The "records don't sell" was a smokescreen - it was really about not being able to record with Lindsey any longer.
