Yeah, it's really just the death of the Stevie Ledge board. For me, the invective, knee-jerk hatred, and name-calling has really ruined the Ledge experience. Stevie is by no means a saint (nor are any of us), but Ledgies' inability to engage in respectful dialogue has made it hard for me to muster the energy to post here with any frequency.

That said, can't wait for her rumored next tour, and I remain hopeful for another album. When either or both happens, I'll be in back here, with hopes of engaging in friendly conversation/debate.

In the past, I would have circulated it on my social media, but I was too disappointed in her behaviour with Lindsey, AND she looked like a self-indulgent fool rambling on like she did. "If you are GRACIOUS, you have won the game"? Okay.
She's always been a rambler. She reminds me of my batty aunt. Usually I find it endearing, but the RRHOF and the Musicare's speeches were cringeworthy.
I saw 24KG 4 times. This last FM tour was the 1st one I've missed since the Dance. I saw LB's solo tour last year--he was as energetic and joyful as always. I loved it. I am torn as to what I will do if Stevie actually solo tours again.
I miss this band. Like another poster said, I used to call them "my band". It saddens me that this is how they will likely end.

I miss the band, too. I also miss coming to The Ledge and reading and writing about FM. There are so many times that I've come to The Ledge for advice about tickets, to read and write reviews of shows, to admire Ledgies whose encyclopedic knowledge of the band and its members is astonishing and a revelation, or just to celebrate these five people who were such significant figures in our lives. I saw 24KG in the theatre, and I, too, have watched it many times; I saw LB's show, bought the BuckVie album, and have supported the band in every way for decades. I believe with all my heart that Stevie was determined to drag MC around, and I only wish she had done this on her solo tours. Waddy would probably have been fine with it, where, of course, she knew LB would not. I think a lot of the vitriol here comes from the fact that many of us are stunned and HURT by the heartlessness of what was done to Lindsey, and then, when he was hospitalized last year, that was the straw that broke the camel's back. As much as I miss them, I just can't even look at them anymore. Sad, indeed.

I don't post here as much because of the fighting and constant negativity. It's not worth the time.

I don't think Mike would have had any interest or motivation to be in Stevie's solo band prior to Tom's death. Why go from being a member of a major group to being a backup player? I am not sure he'd even agree to be part of her band now because no matter how they billed it, he'd just be her back up player. (He might to the odd show with her here and there maybe but not full time). But being part of FM is much bigger, it makes him once again the lead guitarist in another major band. Whereas Waddy's career has been as a studio player and backup to famous front-people.

Why would Lindsey care who she had in her back up band? I don't think she gave any thought to LB's opinions when forming her own bands.

The people on the ledge who are still here for the most part are Stevie fans and sooo you are not going to get much honesty out of them. Posts dropped significantly after she decided not to do a final album with Chris and Lindsey and they nose-dived further after she got Lindsey kicked out. She left Fleetwood Mac fans with no hope.

And it is a joke that her and Mick run the band. The two coke heads who put the band through hell end up with all the glory. It’s too hard for many fans to take.
This. Stevie could walk down fifth avenue shooting orphaned cancer patients in the stomach (ensuring they die slowly & painfully), yet she wouldn’t any of her sycophantic fans. They’d find a way to blame it on Lindsey for suggesting Stevie match her verb tenses that one time 20 years ago.

The funny thing is, I was a rabid Stevie fan for 2 decades. Her slow destruction of FM & her own dignity drove me away, unfortunately. But that’s okay. She gets the last laugh!
