You are just as bad as the obsessed Stevie fans, only your obsessed with Buckingham!
He helped her with music, arranging her songs and got her into FM in 1974.
That was over 40 years ago.
Like it or not, Fleetwood Mac would never have been a supergroup without all 5 of the "Rumours" lineup.
Those 5 people made magic together.
Their chemistry.Their voices. Stevie wouldn't have made the band a supergroup without the other 4 members, and Lindsey wouldn't have made the band a supergroup without the other 4 members.
And Stevie also launched a very successful solo career, which at the peak of her solo popularity, she maintained as a member of Fleetwood Mac. She's one of the very few people that maintained a highly popular duel music career without leaving her original band.
You can hate her all you want, but the hate aimed at her is only from the tiny cult following of Lindsey. These boards don't represent the masses, nor do the twitter comments or facebook comments you can bring up.
Fleetwood Mac is selling out arenas right now.
I personally am not interested in seeing this version of Fleetwood Mac. I only care about FM with all 5 fireflies. But I'm not going to vent over and over on online groups about it, or hate a celebrity that I don't know personally.
Whatever went down between those two, we may never find out. The world isn't going to end because of it, and your lives will continue.
Lindsey is worth around $80 million dollars. He'll be fine.
Stevie doesn't have to be forever grateful because Lindsey helped make her a star, because he didn't make her a star. He gave her a platform, yes. But her voice, her charisma and persona is what made her a star.
It sucks that the band will most likely end without the final tour and album of our fave band. But the music will live on. Their reputation will still be legendary. The public will still love them.
Whatever happens will happen.
You can hate Stevie Nicks in these little forums online as much as you want but that's also not going to diminish her image either. The public at large isn't going to care. She'll still be an icon. Because the public at large have their own lives and are more concerned about their own lives and not about Fleetwood Mac breaking up or not.
Just my 2 cents.
Outside these forums, nobody really cares.
I have to agree with virtually everything you said, wildheart. I'd like to add that this band has benefited every member a thousand times over, so FM owes nothing to Lindsey anymore, or Stevie, or Christine. They have all sacrificed plenty for FM, but their returns have been bountiful.
