Yes, of course. Lindsey? Who’s Lindsey?

Your point has been proven by the posts that
quoted yours.

"Could" is the key word people.

Mine (in all caps) was in jest, in case that wasn't clear.

The message here is we should “move on” and stop blaming the dynamic duo for Lindsey’s firing and current condition because they had nothing to do with it. Poor souls.

And go back to our fave tv show.

I wouldn't call it harmless. Some of it crosses the line to
bullying. And there's no telling how many Ledge members
have been run off by it.

I'm not a fan of Stevie's anymore, so it's not coming from
that point of view. I'm just wondering how a handful of people
can keep the hate going on for months? Doesn't it get tiring?

This whole situation is beyond depressing. I just hope Lindsey is taking the time he needs to look after number one and isn't wasting any of his precious energy on the doings of his former bandmates. They don't deserve consideration when he should be solely focused on recovery.

I had zero illusions that anything heartfelt or meaningful would be said by the other four last night. It's nice that Neil at least tried, but it's not his responsibility. Mick probably only tacked on his well-wishes because he feared that radio silence would interfere with ticket sales. We know his mind is always on the money.

As for Christine, I continue to be thoroughly disgusting with her behavior. Despite knowing that she is probably the most conflicted, I still cannot get over how weak-willed she's become. Woman, you are 75 years old!!! Say what you want to say and be done with it. Instead, the best she'll probably offer up is another clandestine email to Lindsey, replete with a "wink wink, nudge nudge, feel free to share this publicly" post-script to alleviate her guilt.

Stevie. . .don't get me started. There's literally nothing left to say about that one. Probably best for my own mental state if I continue to pretend she doesn't even exist.

Why do the current members of Fleetwood Mac need to make an audience statement about Lindsey? There's a sense of entitlement among fans that is completely unrealistic. You paid to hear the music. Listen. Or don't go. And if you choose not to go, maybe you should be silent as well. Yes, even on a discussion board.

That’s why we don’t go to their concerts. Carry on.

Maybe what you point out, as being the correct way to behave, is a statement about the self centered nature of people in this day, that doing the right thing, and commenting on someone who was part of your working/daily family, should be ignored?? I hope I never develop that type of cruel, coldness......and that I always appreciate and treat my fellow man with more than what this band has treated it's LIVING members (past and present).

Remember, FM is the band doing a retrospective dedication to a dead personality (TP). The LEAST they could do is have some common decency, but clearly they don't, and that seems lost on you.

It's a cruel world and everyone has their own truths. As fans, we aren't privy to those truths and make more assumptions as such. The attacks here are relentless - on each other and bandmembers.

Oh, we know it’s a cruel world!
