I believe he was fired for refusing to use a pick.

Tape 037 is recording right now. I'm hearing
for the first time in a long time the Fleetwood
Mac maxi singles from Tango In The Night. And
just before that was the Stevie Nicks Uncirculated
Rumours 3 album set.


About Lindsey being dismissed, I had forgotten
the word dismissed was used. I thought it was reported
that he had quit the band. On originally seeing that report
on Entertainment Tonight my heart sank. At that point I'd
never seen the Mac. And after hearing that, I thought I never
would.

Was there a little bit of worry from any of you? I'd bet there
was. The approximate date of that tape had to be near August
of 1987. As there was report after report of the 10th anniversary
of Elvis' Death.

that's kinda cool to read, i've never heard before that they reported it as him being dismissed.

and wow yeah Elvis, 1977-1987...

re now, who would be dismissing him? if you ask Mick (someone did, at one of m&gs), LB's the heart of the band right now, and the one whose lead everyone else in the band follows, he's the one who's trying to push them forward. so who would dismiss him these days? Mick? John? Christine who just joined and having a lovefest with him judging by all the interviews?

No, because he was always barefoot.

I'm sorry but did you just borrow Stevie and Lindsey's Word of the Tour for Their Relationship (aka 'lovefest') and use it to describe Chris and Lindsey!? I feel slightly put out on their behalf. Also, I'm sorry but ALL the interviews indicated L and C are having a LOVEFEST!? By that, do you mean, one interview indicated Chris sent some songs to Lindsey and he was pleased with them and looking forward to working with them?

I also notice you left Stevie out of the list of people who you wouldn't think would want to dismiss Lindsey. Any particular reason? Because THEIR lovefest seemed to be pretty damn strong...

you've been so great in collecting everything and anything FM, not just B or N, so i'm pretty sure you must know even better than me what they said about each other in the last few months.

you know, mostly that one interview (or were there 2?) where Christine was talking about how gorgeous he was when she first saw him and having a crush on him in the old times and how much he's always done for the band and her songs? i'm lazy to look for the quotes about their present state of affairs but they go something like "he's a lovely man now" and "i always loved her sense of humor" and "the old chemistry of the 5 is there again when she's together with us" come to mind.

basically that one interview where Christine and Lindsey dispensed with all the mounting speculations how Lindsey is a dick yet again and doesn't want Christine to re-join FM. oh and where Christine said how LB was the one who tried to convince her to stay in FM during the Dance tour, riding in her limo every night after the show. that interview put a sudden stop to all the talk about the bad blood between them.

I assume you're talking about that BBC radio programme/interview? Yes, Christine was almost as flattering about Lindsey in that as the presenter/interviewer was about Christine! Every interview we get with one of them usually gives leave to renewed or squashed talk of bad blood. I don't take a lot of that kind of thing at face value, in truth - there's a general overall message that's trying to be presented by the media and the band. I'm sure they're perfectly happy to be working together again and Christine was overly positive about Lindsey (mostly in reference to The Dance era, and his family changing him positively, and his good looks), but it just doesn't add up to LOVEFEST for me, particularly because Lindsey's feelings have always seemed a little mixed on Christine's leaving and return over the years. Which is fine.

By, 'sudden stop to all the talk about the bad blood', you mean people stopped having a go at Lindsey and being annoyed by talk of burned bridges, lol?

not sure what your definition of lovefest is, but mine must be a good bit wider than yours.
yes, LB seemed to have been unhappy about Christine leaving, if his burned bridges and her descriptions of his limo riding are to be believed.

and yes, i would characterize current apparent friendship between Lindsey and Trent as a lovefest too.

Aside from the line that John's cancer was caught in time and he's going to be fine, I don't see a general overall message being presented by the media and the band at all. In fact, the band members seem to be out of synch when discussing where they're going next and Christine's return.

At any rate, Christine's comments are consistent to things she's been saying for years and don't indicate to me that she's lathering anything on to put on a good front for press.

No, sure. There is consistency and I'm not saying this is particularly true in this case over others, though at times during the BBC interview I felt I was being hit over the head with certain ideas being put across... However, I don't see 'band members being out of synch' and 'a general overall message being presented' as mutually exclusive. In fact, I think sometimes that 'out of sync-ness' is blown out of proportion or emphasised AS PART of the message being presented. I also think you can be putting on a good front for press and be telling the truth at the same time by omitting certain things, and emphasising others by selecting certain events or things to focus on. Again, there aren't necessarily ulterior motives involved or a concerted effort to portray things a certain way; it's a natural thing to do.

Not quite.

Rick was already booked to go out on the Tango tour as a 2nd guitarist when Lindsey quit. Because Tango was so heavilly produced and layered, additional musicians were hired to recreate this sound on stage.
