I think there's a big difference between a change in their young careers (especially considering that they weren't even particularly well known in the US) when none of the various lineups had lasted more than a few years each and a change when they're all 70 years old and have broken apart the lineup that launched them into the crazy fame and success that made them iconic, produced most of their legendary songs and albums and has been definitive for the name 'Fleetwood Mac' for several decades.

they didn't even exist in my head at the time. i couldn't care less about FM or any of its members in the 90s. and yeah, that's how "reunions" work - you gotta reunite everyone!

we are talking about who needed it and for what reasons, not who all was needed in order to do the reunion. as a LB fan, i'm saying i'd have much more music from him by now if he wasn't held back over and over by FM since that reunion. of course that's not something he'd agree with, that's just "only in my head"!

Lindsey had few fans back then and probably even fewer now. I always thought the reunion was for him more than anyone else, to make a few bucks since he had not had any real income since Tango, and that was just from album sales not even the tour.

Nah it's all about Mick's obsession. The only reason Fleetwood Mac continues to exist is because Mick rallies them all together. John nearly bottled out round Tango time according to the first autobiography. Stevie needs Mac a lot less than vice versa and John's quite happy just yachting and watching Penguin progs on National Geographic I reckon.

But I do find it interesting that during his ten year period out of the band he only came up with one album whereas in the post SYW period we got three (plus BuckVie of course).

Several industry executives believe the current tour [1997] is more of a financial imperative for Mr. Fleetwood than for other members of the band. Though he declined to comment specifically on his net worth, he would say only half kidding, "I'm not broke if that's what you mean." Whereas in contrast, Mr. Buckingham is said to have held onto his money, and Ms. Nicks has earned income from hit solo albums and royalties for songs she wrote.

Nobody in Fleetwood Mac is ever in more dire financial straits than Mick Fleetwood, rest assured.
