Fleetwood Mac the band is DEAD

Mick "dollar signs" Fleetwood needs to rebrand
so this new band can disappear into the cosmos and we don't have to hear about them ever again.


ETA: secretlove Mick Fleetwood IS an A$ $ HO LE. class 1. he doesn't give a a flying F about this band or the fans. can't even keep track of his own lies and doesn't value the longterm fans, lindsey's loyalty or the legacy of the band to even tell a remote sliver or Truth. if that doesn't make him an asshole, dunno what does.

Nevermind the fact that they had Mike Campbell on the phone to replace Lindsey so quickly that it's possible he might have known about the firing before Lindsey and Christine did!

What was it - 6 days after MusiCares? And Christine and Lindsey left the day after thinking he was still in the band, so they have to wait until Christine goes, so assuming Christine left the very same day and they decided the very next day...

They called Mike at most 4 days after they fired Lindsey.
I asked if when MC was approached he knew what was gonna happen to Lindsey, because I think the question was inevitable. And the answer was "yes".

Are you kidding? Mick is all those things and more. What other fans of Mick? Anyway, being an a$$hole is different than being an a*shole.

This situation is so sad. Mick is doing PR, but still! I'd like to think that one or two of the members would have a conscience and a respect for their own legacy. I keep hoping common sense will prevail, but I guess not.
I think he's doing what he needs to do to legitimize this lineup and their actions. I'd like to see if/how the narrative changes once the tour starts and reviews come out. Who knows, maybe they purposefully left Christine out of it, so she would be the one to go and try to mend fences when this all goes south! LOL

Holy moley close call between which of all these statements is the most flabbergasting; an interesting choice, as well, to be fan-atical about a "greedy and self-serving, yes" - person. IMHO.

In other news though, I do know THIS -- rest assured that that man hardly needs any help from us denizens, reputationwise. He seems to be managing the vicious spiral downwards quite well without any outside help.

You are a Mick fan you say, I'm just interested in what you believe his redeeming features are these days?

i'm sorry, but how can anyone calling themselves any era FM fan (Peter Green, Bob Welch, Classic 5, post-Rumours - any version and/or members) give money to this guy in concert is way way beyond me. every time he opens his mouth he buries the current FM version deeper and deeper.

this Mick guy apparently doesn't seem to have an ounce of creativity left in him. he recycles Lindsey's words about treading water, importance of remaining creative, or throwing out some music as calling cards before the tour... so nauseating.

Mick Fleetwood on the new Fleetwood Mac: 'It's important to remain creative and not tread water'
In all seriousness, can you please express your opinion without calling anyone names? I cannot believe this continues to be allowed over and over on this board. And Lindsey does not have the market on pretty words. Mick has always spoken pretty eloquently without sounding rehearsed.

I think there should probably be a stand alone thread for times when Mick Fleetwood was an ass.
Personally, the more I've read about it, the more I feel he was a complete ass during the fake Fleetwood Mac period. He's an ass. I don't hate him. He has some redeeming features, but he's still an ass.

We don't always agree. But, I've always respected your clear and direct opinions.

Erm, that probably was a tad OTT actually. I'm afraid that post came a little while after England beat Tunisia in the football (soccer) World Cup (and several pints of finest German lager)

The timing was a bit awkward, though. I had just said that Fuzzy Plum was not a vulgar poster only a few hours before!

I was also planning to watch the game on some pub near my hotel, but everthing was packed. Great win, btw! And being drunk because of football is one of the best feelings, so never apologize!

Then I came home and found out we were losing. Hope my team wakes up on Tuesday.
