Oh seriously! It breaks my freaking heart!

I was listening to a bootleg the other day of "Without You" from 2013 and Stevie was intro'ing it with this beautiful story of how much she loved Lindsey and he was saying the same and it was so freaking sweet and wonderful.

Listen to how she talks him up in this video below and how he responds. Lindsey says at 6:15 "There are a few more chapters left in the book of Fleetwood Mac and I love you, Stevie. I love you." Stevie: "I love you." Where did that love go??

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpeQXCnr_mA


Stevie and Lindsey, in the clip below about 4:25, talk about becoming "the new George and Gracie" and Stevie says, "When the music is gone, we can do comedy." Lindsey talks about insisting she be in the band before he joined and says "That's love."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3z02JI77Vk


It's so wrong, things ending this way after all these years!

I think their relationship was actually good in that time. But it soured later on, probably exacerbated by the OWTS tour coming right after. They shouldn't have done back to back tours like that, they needed a break from each other but because of Christine returning they did it anyways.
And then Stevie continuously refusing to record, thus the BuckVie album etc etc.

Imagine having a horrific, nasty break-up and having to continue to work together, sing painful lyrics to each other, and never getting proper closure.
I am not buying the story the band is telling why Lindsey was let go.
Nor am I buying the story some of the fans on this board are assuming.
I think there was a huge, nasty fight before the Music Cares show.
Like REALLY nasty.
But that's just my opinion.

Although there are clearly also other factors at play (like Tom Petty's untimely demise last year and the effect of that on Stevie's perspective), I think you have something here.

Although SnL are two adults and can't blame Christine's presence if they're not getting along with each other, she is senior to them in the band (now in a very literal sense ) and her return would have upturned whatever delicate balance and narrative they had going on as the Buckingham and Nicks Show, and possibly resulted in a regression of mindsets, dynamics and behavior to what they were in the 70s~80s years.

Came across this quote:

"Lindsey is probably the man who loved me the most in my life. So when I die I will remember that: that of all the men in my life Lindsey, absolutely, bar none, was the man who loved me the most." - Stevie, Q Magazine, 2008

I really hope Stevie turns it around or, on that deathbed, I fear she will be filled with regret....

It is likely that Stevie still loves Lindsey and realizes how much he has loved her. Despite that, if Lindsey backed out of a contractual obligation to tour for the next year (Lindsey has not denied this), then the band was within its rights to let him go and find replacements. There aren't many jobs where a person can refuse to show up at work for a year and not be fired. If you have a job like that, count your lucky stars.

Even if everything you said is true, honestly... the "bosses" had a choice here; they did not HAVE to fire him. They chose money over a 50 year relationship. To me, that is very, very sad and wrong.

Stevie needs an abacus to count hers

Oh boy not this contractual obligation again. Show me the contract. Show me the proof.

I give up.

Fuzzyplum has a superb point about the abacus though. SUPERB.

Edited to add that "he has not denied this" is NOT proof. I have not denied to have stolen my neighbours car, yet, I haven't.
