I do, because I don't perceive them as giving a general overall message. To me they're giving different ones, which is very distinct to their own goals and hopes. I don't see a uniformity.

I read as much as you do and I concur. Stevie, Lindsey and Mick have all had their own agendas going for the moment and haven't spoke much of any FM stuff in the past few weeks.

I WANT MY INFORMATION!!!

I guess they have to figure out what they are going to do with the new situation. The five remaining Lindsey-Mick-John recordings from the 2012 sessions with Mitchell Froome, the new Chrisstuff, the possible demo's from Stevie. Is a different approach necessary? Rerecording? First touring, then recording? I bet Lindsey is fooling around with Christine's stuff right now. And they deserved some time off. How is John progressing? Come on, we all want info, but give them a short break to figure it out!

No, it was Billy Burnette who was good to go for the Shake The Cage tour. When Lindsey left, Billy suggested Rick Vito since he'd been working on an album with him (Roy Orbison's Mystery Girl) & that Billy felt he couldn't handle the guitar parts alone. Rick already had a Fleetwood Mac connection since he had worked with John McVie for a short while when both were in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers.

Just like they needed two people to replace Bob Welch.

They Didn't "Need" Stevie, In Fact, at first they didn't want her. Lindsey wouldn't join without Stevie

Well, they didn't NEED Rick Vito either...Billy wouldn't join without Rick.

THERE...I run rings around you logically.

No, they did not need Stevie. But they also didn't need Lindsey. They needed a guitar player.

Those were shocking words. In the very few seconds they
devoted to the story, replacements will be announced over
the coming weeks*.


*As in soon.

And the Rumours' section think they've got
something on us.

We predicted this over 4 years ago..............ah ha, that Ledge Crystal Ball was working overtime then!!

And it's going to take 2 (yet again!!) to replace Lindsey and Mike is one of them. I think I'll take a pass on the next tour too. Mick must be really hurting for $$ or something because this was way out in left field, although it really wasn't. Was he pissed off at the Lindsey/Christine Tour or just had enough??

Now let's see if an amazing aging rock band can maintain its audience without the Lindzers?? I'll bet that LB is saying IDGAF!!

I sure hope that most of the concert going
audience realizes that he is not with them
before they buy the tickets.

I can hear the commercials for the tour already.
Can't imagine them spelling out that possibly the
greatest talent the band had was fired. It'll just
be carefully chosen video of Ms. Nicks and crew.
Singing all the old tunes, even Lindsey's.

Then they go and realize they've been had.

That's my fear too. Sometimes people buy concert tickets without realizing what's going on behind the scenes. Audiences that are not into social media very much. I couldn't care less about this tour. Fine if they succeed, fine if they fail.
