That's it. Surely if it's true that John needed 'some persuading' and wanted a bit of time to agree, wouldn't he have called Christine and said this is the situation -what do you think? They could have both disagreed and then there would have been no MAJORITY......

When I see Mick again,
As I always do,
It appears to me that
Majority rules!
And the two of us are ruthless with the votes we choose
It's not being a quintet,
It's just following some rules
Made by two fools...

I like other guitarists,
I like Mike.

I want to dance around the house for the last decade of my life.

It's like working for a washed-up drummer;
The McVies are bickering,
Like a pair of snakes, tired of little lies.
OMFG that's fantastic!

Trying to formulate theories based on casual comments is fruitless, such as the decision supposedly being made while Christine was out of the country. Even if true, she still had a voice and a choice in the matter. The fact she's still with FM tells me she ultimately agreed with the decision to fire Lindsey.
who cares?

I mean, he was making a JOKE about what could have happened.

If anyone is thick enough to think that because someone had a little fun with some lyrics that it means they are claiming something is 100% true, then that person deserves to be fooled.

Get over yourself.

My post was in response to the original post by sodascouts, not downonrodeo, who posted the very funny and clever parody of Destiny Rules. Not sure what in my response was so incendiary that you said I had to get over myself

I really agree with this, secret love. There is no way John and Christine didn't know what was going on, but even if they somehow really didn't, they did have the option to be heard. That's why I really think there's a little more to this story than any of us know, and maybe it's not our business, I don't know. I mean, FM is in the public eye, but that doesn't mean we have the right to know everything that goes on. I WANT to know what happened, but ultimately it's none of my business. Anyway, I do believe it was majority rules, whether it was 3 against 2 or 4 against 1.

in the words of Kristen Buckingham about what happened - “The reality is even more appalling.”

Oh to grab a cocktail with that lady and chat about this The family's/and those closest to Lindsey reaction about the current situation lends itself to thinking there is so much more that happened. Lindsey's family (minus Kristen) lived thru some pretty crazy stuff with FM/S&L back in the day, but the response and reaction to this situation is really at another level. I understand and agree that we live in a world where social media takes things to another level. I go back to what I felt when I initially heard this--the ripple effect here is vast and deep. Lindsey's comments last week about legacy and opportunity were so great to hear.
