So she meant well when she plotted,schemed and engineered Lindsey's firing from Fleetwood MacIt seems to me that the deed was done with diabolical intent.

One of the most narcissistic things she has ever said was the Greenpeace speech at the end of the Farewell Tour 1990. She told fans to get involved and "do it for me." My local paper had a fit about that statement and accused her of talking like a narcistic and arrogant queen. Do it for me? Really.
I wish I could find the concert review that appeared in the Pittsburgh Press in November 1990.

Touche!

I mean back in the day before $he turned evil.

As many have said, her mother probably kept her somewhat grounded. Once she died, $he became completely self absorbed.

I’m sure there’s nothing on the table for anyone right now. They couldn’t insure that tour during the pandemic. That said, I’d love a new album from the band.

I believe that was the point. They wanted something different.

The thought of hearing a nasal uninspired Rhiannon for the 100th time is not appealing.
Okay, but it hasn’t been inspiring since like 1982. With or without Lindsey.

Stevie doesn't take ANY chances anymore. NONE.
She sang a Peter Green song and turned one of Christine’s “Time” songs into a duet on the last tour.

Lindsey is the only one left in the band with an ounce of artistic credibility.
Which is why they got Neil Finn and Mike Campbell.

I may have that. I'll look for it.

Christine's piano intro on the Dance DVD is inspiring.

It’s a carryover from Stevie’s solo version.

Really, “Rhiannon” got neutered in the mid ‘80s and “The Chain” got neutered on The Dance. Those were the two most explosive songs. They’ve been bland for decades, now.

except when Lindsey performs them with other bands and not the neuterers. just watch 2 different versions of the Chain he has done with Little Big Time - acoustic backstage version and then on stage version too. now those are what you would call explosive! he needs someone way better and more inspiring than the competitive jealous neutering band FM had become decades ago.

Really? That was just as bland. Look at any of the ‘77-‘82 versions of “The Chain” and tell me with a straight face that remotely compares. There’s no slight buildup during the bass solo and it just abruptly ends without the explosive solo at the end. It was every bit as neutered.

Too bad Stevie is not taking this time to record. The last thing she needs is to try another solo tour of oldies. Make another album, girl, keep your fans alive and firm up your legacy. It took just a few weeks to put together 24KG, do that again.

I do realize that. However, even though it's not explosive; Christine plays a beautiful piano. Silver Springs was gorgeous and somewhat explosive on that tour. You're right though, I wouldn't compare that to 1982 which was electrifying. That (Dance) was the beginning of "watered down versions" especially of Stevie's songs. I did enjoy NTF on the Dance tour.

it's hard to take seriously opinion on blandness from someone who willingly exposed themselves over and over to the backstabbers tour 2018 and that horrible non-listenable version of The Chain.

She SHOULD have ended that speech with, "If not for me then do it for the world." It would have been perfect.
