Thatís not what the reference was about. Bob committed suicide in 2012, and Wendy Welch said that Mick told her Christine refused to go to the Hall of Fame ceremony if Bob was included. It was easy for Mick to blame that on the long retired Christine, thus creating no hard feelings between Wendy and the remaining members.

But was that really what happened?

Very true. Mick could be lying, but are there any other theories out there that may be correct?

Who was the easiest to throw under the bus as far as Fleetwood Mac concerned in 2012?
Well, Mick IS a charlatan, thief, liar, and general scumbag, so who knows what the truth is. I know that Bob's ~induction~ meant the world to him and Wendy, and he went to his grave, wanting that recognition.

And Bob knew them better than ANY of us ever will, so I'll take "his truth" as most likely being true, over that of any Ledgies with their crystal testes.

Know what's weird? I used to chat with Bob on his website. They lived in Nashville, and I've always spent tons of time there. I always wanted to ask him and Wendy out to dinner, but never did(I guess out of fear that they wouldn't have accepted[although I think they would have]).

Bob committed suicide on a morning that I was leaving Nashville. It was just weird to think that I was only a few miles away(there's your pun) from him, and had chatted with him, and failed to try to meet them both.

Every time I hear a Bob song, I remember that day. I didn't see the news until I got to my other home(in IN), and saw it here on the Ledge.

This is a conspiracy theory, not fact.

Why, oh why, did some bright sparks think they should bring new people in? Are they all that insecure that they cannot exist without a lead guitarist? I know - many if not all Mac songs feature guitar. Why not hire a couple of session musicians rather than bring people into the inner circle?

I would have loved a Women of Mac show.
Well someone would have to play guitar. What would that have looked like? Waddy? Neale Heywood? The level of hysteria would probably have been the same.

Basically Fleetwood Mac is Mick and to a quieter extent John. If they were okay with it being called Buckingham McVie then it's pretty much the same as settled law in my mind.

I love Say You Will but they really should have taken her up on that.

Yes. And can you guess who never showed up to any of those shows? Gee I wonder why? Maybe he was too busy banging on a Kleenex box?

I don't think we will ever know the whole story with that.
