Default 'Sisters of the Moon' - the power of Stevie Nicks

when Stevie's voice was powerful and Lindsey's guitar solos were not yet neutered by SN not allowing him to do any.

one of her best songs.

I've said it a million times, and I'll say it again - $tevie Nicks is the worst thing that ever happened to FM. #nastyoldgoat

I would respectfully disagree. After 40+ years as a MAC fan the worst thing that ever happened to Fleetwood Mac was firing Lindsey Buckingham.

Agreed...

But yet, WHO caused that?

The nasty old goat.

MY dream would have been $tevie leaving the band for good, to do her solo thing, and Lindsey and Chris fronting the band until....the end.

Like BuckVie!!! So, we got the last album, just not the part where the nasty old goat goes bleating off into the sunset...

I will say that the Fleetwood Mac/BuckMcVie album speaks volumes.

Agreed. SHE was the reason Lindsey was fired, no one else. Her "him or me" ultimatum was final. It was an easy decision, really. Millions were at stake, not to mention hundreds of jobs.

And I wish her nothing but misery for her ultimatum.

I wanted to wish her a permanent itch somewhere, but people are so easily offended these days....

Yeah, because last thing we know, it's the band's wish to give fans a last proper album the reason Nicks got Lindsey fired. So, basically, it's his own fault he was ousted….. ok...…

YUP!!! I can't even listen to them anymore. My lifelong (since I was 15) favorite band has been RUINED because of her.

Same(although I did listen to BuckVie while driving on Thanksgiving).

My lifelong band since I was in 8th grade. It's RUINED. And we know who ruined it. I hope karma gets her big time, and nice and slow. Although she won't care. She's too self absorbed to regret anything outside her group of yes people.

I ask myself why I still come here... Because it's the band I've followed my entire life.

While I'm certainly not happy with Stevie's recent actions, this statement is a bit harsh. Ms. Nicks has added some magical moments to Fleetwood Mac. I've often been a critic of her self-absorbed persona, but there's no denying her magic.

Firing Lindsey Buckingham was the worst thing that's ever happened.

Unhappy

I'm certainly not happy with Stevie's recent actions either. Though I still think we will never know the whole truth, so actually I'm angry with all FM members.

Now, saying Stevie is the worst thing that ever happened to FM, is more than a bit harsh, as saying Ms. Nicks has added some magical moments to Fleetwood Mac. Some?

I know this is the "what if" game again, but anyway I would say...
  • If Mick had hired Lindsey without Stevie in 1975, the story would have been different. Far different, obviously not for better.
  • If Mick hadn't met Lindsey in 1974, me and many southamerican people would never have heard Fleetwood Mac.
  • If the present band released a studio album, it wouldn't be as good as any Rumours lineup album (to say the least).
  • If Say You Will had Christine, I can't imagine the great album that had been.

I was googling best Fleetwood Mac songs. The Rolling Stones 50 top FM songs list includes 13 Stevie's songs, 12 Christine's songs, 16 Lindsey's songs. The Independent.co.uk 20 top list includes 6 Stevie's songs, 4 Christine's songs and 4 Lindsey's songs. There are Danny and Peter songs on both lists, too.

The point is not who got more songs, or who got the top positions. My point is, I must watch the big picture, not a single episode. Knowing the band whole history I can't undervalue any of them. I can't say that any of those guys added just some magical moments.

First I missed Lindsey (1987), then I missed Fleetwood Mac, then I missed Christine (1998). Then I missed Lindsey (2018). Now, I miss Fleetwood Mac again.
