As do we all to an extent, bearing in mind other's feelings though, and use tactful, nuanced approaches? Just saying?

It's not pathetic for us fans to be upset about LB's firing. After all we are on a FLEETWOOD MAC message board. If ANY place in the world is appropriate for venting about his firing THIS is the place. Is it that big a deal in the scheme of things? No. I'm not a big fan of a lot of things. I live in LA, NEVER ask for autographs etc... But I have loved this band since I'm 15 and this makes me sad that these rich a holes couldn't finish it all out on a high note.

Take comfort in knowing the people on this board (and on social media)
represent a tiny tiny fraction of the smallest percentage of fans.

Most of these people are forgetting that the band has long passed their 30s 40ís 50ís and 60ís.
They are well into retirement age and would never tour unless itís fun.
They are all loaded.

But look who we put in the White House. Our culture is steeped in hate and narcissism and blame. Donít pay attention to the hateful narcissistic behavior. Fans who behave this way are always going to be this way - with or without Lindsey, itíll always be about them and their needs.
Ignore it and enjoy the music. Mike Campbellís playing is jaw droppingly amazing.
The shows will sell out.

How is anything I'm saying hateful? I didn't call anybody a name (i was called pathetic) and am voicing my opinions on big FM news. What you are saying is that only people who are happy about it should be able to voice their opinion? Isn't that the same thing? Worrying about their own need to feel happy about it?

I agree with every word you wrote. This is the sh*ttiest end to the legacy that any of us could have imagined.

This is a forum about the "Rumours" band and the five people who comprised it and they have fired one of their own for what is appearing to be no good reason but vindictiveness.If people posting about their feelings about this bothers you then just don't respond.

EXACTLY. Better yet go over to the POST RUMOURS board. There is way less venting over there and it should be very happy talk about the new line up. This is about the Rumours line up which just got destroyed so....we talk about it.

Condolences all around to everyone who has suffered personal losses. What has happened to this band is yet another loss for those of us who are fans of the Rumours lineup. Whatís truly pathetic is that in the twilight stage of their careers, rather than going out with class by either patching things up or disbanding, they chose to fire (yes, itís an ugly word but itís the truth) their most musically creative member.

What a wasted opportunity to have Christine McVie rejoin the band only to have band members be forced to go to great lengths to disassociate newly recorded music from the label 'Fleetwood Mac' simply because one member refused to participate. Now this same member seems to be the likely catalyst for Lindsey being ousted from the band. Itís clear that money and/or vengeance, not music, is the driving force for certain key members of this band.

FFS, even the members of ABBA have finally patched things up, recorded new music, and are going out on tour!

Very well said! And yes LB is non stop musically creative. He shaped the sound that make FM break IMO. What he did to their songs production wise is what made them stand out. No one sounded like them.

Yeah, to call other people pathetic over and over again because they come here to vent their frustration over the band legacy and Lindseyís firing is also kinda pathetic

There's quite of a lot of double standards going on in this forum lately. It's not ok to call someone pathetic (and I understand that point), but it's ok to call other posters "Children of Stevie - they are out of their cells walking again" - and that is perfectly fine?

Confusing!?!?

Thank you for your post BellaSoprano71. I agree with much of what you say, and my condolences to you and your family during this very difficult time.

It is a hologram tour. I think I'd keel over in shock if Agnetha , one of the more reluctant megastars in pop history would agree to tour live at 68 when she loathed it in her twenties.I can't wait to hear the new ABBA songs though.
