They're still capable of creating another FM album, regardless their age. Unless one of them suffers a sudden death, I don't see any of them dying soon, not even John. His musical skills seem intact, IMO.

BUT, there won't be another album, thanks to guess who?

Mick wants to make a new album
John wants to make a new album
Lindsey wants to make a new album
Christine wants to make a new album
Stevie said a new album won't sell, which means 'no, I don't want to make a new album'.

So, who were we supposed to blame? John Courage?
No, I believe we should blame the only person who searched for excuses.

It's not about blaming, noone here expects everyone having the same opinion, it's about the manner. Personally I think it's cool every reasoned disagreement about anyone and from anyone, what it's not cool is continuous taunting or baiting with insults or sexist remarks.
Lately the board was calming down, I hope it won't start up again.

Actually it depends, most good leaders aren't at all the most expert or talented at doing something when it's about creative tasks, they're the ones who knows how to manage work and which people to be surrounded with and to give the right tasks to. Otherwise, if you think about it wouldn't they then just do those tasks themselves? Instead they coordinate and employ others who are more specifically knowledgeable of them but only in a single specific sector, while they have a generalized knowledge that permits them to organize and complete the whole.

This could very probably be the case with Stevie's solo career, where she doesn't know how to exactly achieve the result-song she wants but hires what she deems as the best musicians and staff that do the necessary practical tasks for her and achieve the results she wants.

I'm a leader in my work group and many, many, many times I have to do things by myself. That doesn't mean I'm a bad leader, it means I'm sorrounded by people who doesn't know how to do the job or doesn't want to learn, and there's nothing I can do about it but do the job myself. But then I don't work in a creative environment.

Yeah, of course, money can buy everything, even talent.

I never insulted anyone. I'm just frustrated, like many people here. I guess it's good to have many places other than this board to vent.

Beyond happy that Nicks won't be on this....McVie and Buckingham are amazing. If they need a third voice...any 3rd grader with no vocal training could out do Nicks

So YOU don't like it. That doesn't change the fact it was one of the bigger hits of their career.

However I find it pretty sad the number of people calling her all manner of disgusting things. Grown-up men (and quite possibly women too, but mostly men, I think) thinking its funny to write 'burn the witch' and the like. I respect the right to free speech but come on ffs, grow up people and put things into perspective
This. This. And more of this. Maybe I'm biased because I love Stevie with all of my heart, but I also hate seeing people calling her horrible things in every thread. Those who dislike have that right but do we really have to have the constant name calling?

In fact I haven't said that you in particular have insulted anyone (at least from what I've seen since I'm not always here)
I just said that there are many ways to disagree and there have been instances in the past in which disagreements weren't expressed in a healthy way. It's only normal that people were frustrated by this just like you are frustrated by the musical situation.

I obviously can't know if you're a bad leader, but it seems you have a dysfunctional work place. Of course there are many different types of leadership and none is the best in absolute terms, but it rather depends on the job, the project in question and both the personality and other qualities of the leader and of the different people involved, hoewever creative environments usually suffer from traditional types of leaderships "Top-Down".

I've personally never believed in the concept that "money can buy everything" and "money can buy talent"; money can buy a "service" or a "performance" but can't buy ideas.
