Default Fleetwood Mac is Freakin' Goofy

So, I recently started a thread called "If Looks Could Kill..." so we can post examples of Stevie & Lindsey being grumpy at each other. While I was doing so, I posted the performance of "Sisters of the Moon" from the Mirage tour, at the beginning of which Mick goes up on his toes like Michael Jackson, commits harakiri on a drumstick, chugs an alcoholic beverage, and makes an obscene gesture with his tongue that prompted me into dubbing him Uncle Bad Touch the moment I first saw it. All in the space of less than 90 seconds.



While the Mac is definitely full of teh dramaz, they also have a tendency to be freakin' goofy, which I enjoy. So what are your favorite examples of members being goofy or adorable or both? Doesn't have to be only Rumours era & you can include solo stuff and whatnot.

Here are some more of mine:

Opening night in Pittsburgh on the Unleashed tour during "Go Insane." This is a really small one, but it never fails to make me smile - at about 2:06, Lindsey says, "Yeah!" in this terribly chipper tone that is just adorable to me. Because I'm a weirdo.



Live in Boston DVD, "Stand Back" - Lindsey gets down with his bad self, and Stevie plays airplane, zooming around with her arms out and her lips pursed like she's making airplane noises.

Live in Boston DVD again, "Tusk" - The shadowboxing thing is cute, but it's Lindsey's clapping and jumping away from her after they hug that makes me laugh. He's all "YAAAAAAAY!"



I'll come back with more after I snooze!

This is great, never saw this before - Lindsey has technical difficulties with guitar, so takes the opportunity to slip in a little workout on stage.



Someone should've brought out Stevie's treadmill.

That's a great video! I wish I could understand every word they're saying, but, still, how cute are they both?

Zombie, I love Stand Back from the LIB video too. Lindsey's monkey dancing at the beginning is great - one of my favorite clips

Especially since Stevie's just like, "Yeah, go ahead" So accommodating.

Maybe it's 'cos she couldn't just let him go down and do his stuff? Maybe that's what that song is really about. Stevie! You missed out on some awesome calisthenics (doo-doodly-doo)!

Yeah, I can't understand much of it, either - wish I could. But Lindsey has dance moves that kill by the millions. TRUFAX.

G,
I found it in my usual YouTube travels. The owner has some excellent quality vids of The Dance & LIB up right now, but they won't last, I'm sure.

This is what I wrote after the show, it captures a little of what they said.

SAY GOODBYE: Lovely -- not the song -- the instrumental failure. Great fun. Lindsey did his little speech for Say Goodbye, but then something happened with his guitar. He goes to the side to fix it, saying that this is a lesson in "earn while you learn." Stevie pretends that she's going to do a little tap dance. When he comes back he begs Ray just to tell him he's ok. Ray walks over and says that he's ok to play again and Lindsey pats him. Lindsey says that Ray is his long time friend and assistant whose last name is Lindsay. "Isn't that weird?" Stevie says "It is weird." Reminiscent of the conversation he had with Christine on the The Dance video.

Lindsey is easily weirded out. He must not get out much. He thinks the most common things are singular. Anyway, he says that in all fairness it is not Ray's fault because this is the first night of their tour and there are bound to be problems. He tells Ray there will be a $50 fine. He prepares to start Say Goodbye again and turns to Stevie again, but says that the tender moment is gone. He says the audience should have pity, while they try to recapture the mood. She laughs and says they should try to be serious again and regain their composure.

He starts playing and the guitar goes out again. Many giggles from Stevie. Lindsey lays on the floor. She says that Lindsey is just going to take a little nap. He starts doing sit ups and then he turns on his stomach and does push ups. Stevie says, "I had no idea you could do that." Gee, that doesnt' say much about their sex life, if she had no idea. Shedding new light on why things started falling apart 30 years ago . . . She tells him, "I am so proud of you." After the push ups, Lindsey is on his knees, pretending to be too fatigued to stand up by himself. Stevie hugs him, caresses his face, kisses his hand and "helps" him off the floor.

She says that this is not the first time she and Lindsey have been on stage when nothing worked. She said they started this back in 1968 and some nights ALL the equipment failed. It is heady to imagine that 36 years ago Lindsey, Stevie, and the rest of Fritz were on some small stage somewhere performing. I think Id love Stevie and Lindsey for their history alone. The temperamental guitar finally allows them to perform Say Goodbye.
