He got a list of grievances from Stevie why she never wanted to be on stage with him again. Two cited were "the smirk" and him complaining about playing "Rhiannon" as an entrance song. Okay, is there more? I certainly hope so for FM's sake, because this band has been through a whole lot more traumatic experiences than that. There's been a lot worse happen in the band than that and Lindsey was never fired then.
Well said. I agree totally. Lindsey has been known to be an ass. It is well documented. Ken wrote on Facebook yesterday I believe that Lindsey was the most controlling person he ever knew. So for Lindsey to go forward with a lawsuit, he has to feel very confident. In the end, everyone has to go with their gut feeling. And some common sense.

I love Stevie, I have since 1975, I've read all the books and articles that talk about Lindsey's issues, but my gut tells me he was wronged. I hate all the bashing, and I hope someone on FM's team lets them know how torn up all the fans are over this. But it's obvious they still live in their bubble after all these years.

Much as I would have liked to derive a delicious pleasure in hearing the sordid details of their relationship directly from them and under oath (and not through disgruntled ex-girlfriends, disaffected former employees, former band members, etc. who can hardly be described as disinterested--you will never catch me reading any of their tell-all tomfoolery), I agree with most of the posters above that they will settle out of court with a strict confidentiality clause. Lindsey I guess has all his ducks in a row, since he has had lots of time to prepare, but the rest? I highly doubt Mick Fleetwood for instance would want the IRS and his innumerable creditors to see his actual net worth. They'll settle. Alas! After the trouble they've caused the fan base, a little discomfort and embarrassment on their part would have been wonderful to behold.

What the judge will decide is if LB can prove he had an oral contract with FM and whether or not there was just cause to terminate him. I have no idea what evidence either side intends to present at trial, and neither do you. Either way, it's a sad, sorry way for this band to go out, at this late stage in the game, both for the fans, and the legacy of the band.
Judges interpret "legislation" i.e. law at every level of our court system up to and including the Supreme Court. Once a case is adjudicated by the Supremes then and only then is it considered settled law. That is why it is extremely important that we are careful about the appointees to the court.
Just because legislation is passed does not mean it is constitutional.

I've never read such misleading gobbledegook.

You heard it here first folks--the matter of Buckingham v Fleetwood will not be "settled law" until the US Supreme Court decides on its constitutionality!

That's how the American legal system works. Don't shoot the messenger. I never said anything about FM going to the Supreme court. However anything's possible:

It's all sordid, but we've certainly livened up the ol' Ledge. I bet there are people reading and posting who haven't been around for ten years. Imagine that it's even likely members of the band or their entourage are here, too.

In other news, I broke down and bought the Tango and the White Album deluxe packages last night on Amazon. I figured I needed more than just to play them on Spotify.

Well one side of this contretemps has been leaking like a big old sieve for months now so it wouldn't surprise me if they're watching to see how this plays. I would even go so far as to say that have used their fans to get the story out.

I went to the Lindsey show at the last min on Friday. I met SYWLindsey... and he said to me, "I've been reading your posts since I was in high school."

And wow!! He didn't hate me. In fact, we had a blast. I also, met Ana! She's absolutely lovely, too! Great little ledge meet up in LA.

Lindsey's the smartest of the bunch. He's the least of them to do anything foolish, (unless of course he's been drinking)

My gut feeling tells me he will win his lawsuit, or at the very least he will settle for a big chunk of change and call it a day with FM.
