Yeah. A lot of people talk about how Buckingham McVie was basically a Fleetwood Mac album. I don't agree. Both Stevie AND Lindsey are essential for my version of Fleetwood Mac.

So we went from a touring schedule conflict to something like "it was time for a change"? I think the latter is closest to the truth, based on the other sensibilities coming into play. Talk about ****ing up a good thing!

It's a damn shame Stevie couldn't find it in her heart or have the patience and discipline to record with Lindsey again. I mean, after all they had been through already. Let's give it one more try Stevie, for the sake of FM, and most of us wanting them to go out on that note as the Rumours Five, not Finwood Mike.

OMG. That's too funny. Self fulfilling prophecy? Or maybe it REALLY is Mick?

Or maybe he saw the backlash the "tour" story was getting and decided to change it to make them look less shallow and mercenary - that they fired the man who had been architect of their sound for decades just because he was delaying a profitable tour.

Much better to make it about how they wanted to be more creative than about how they wanted the money to roll in sooner than he did.

It's so unfair to Lindsey though - to paint him as the one holding them back creatively when he was the one begging them to record and it was Stevie who refused!!! Maybe they are punishing him for the "lost perspective" comment in addition to attempting to improve their image.

If the band does record new music now, it would be so obvious to me why Stevie did not record with them while Lindsey was in the band. All her talk about music not selling would be total BS! And the band choosing Stevie over Lindsey because of her unwillingness to work with him would be apparent. And why? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Be that as it may, the Fleetwood-McVie-McVie rhythm section has been the driving force for twelve of the bandís albums, with Christine doing session work on another five albums.

looks like you didn't set up this poll as a single option choice, even though that's what you are asking. some people are cheating and checking off multiple members.

Lindsey Buckingham.

I started listening to Fleetwood Mac when I was a teenager (in the 1990s) because of Stevie Nicks. Then The Dance happened and I saw him. I immediately loved him way more than her and these days he's the only member of that line-up that I still love. The rest of them are pretty much dead to me at this point, what with recent events, though I hold no ill-will towards either of Lindsey's replacements.

The results are questionable as Mike and Neil are not included...

right, Sugar would vote for Neil instead of Mick in that case.
