Default If Lindsey would have died, would Stevie & Mick be allowed at funeral?

I donít think his family should allow them to attend his funeral after what theyíve done to him. They would just use him for press anyway. They are totally self absorbed.

I doubt if any of them would attend. You know, being the self absorbed.....people they are. Without loyalty, the lot of them.

At the time of his heart attack...no I donít think they would have been allowed.

But now...possibly they would all attend, water under the bridge etc.
Plus we live in strange times..

Moreís the point they should stretch out a hand Now....before anyone of them croaks...not to get back together (that boat has sailed)..but just as a remembrance of what they had..

Of course if there was a funeral they would have been invited and all would have attended. Good grief!

I think Stevie would've had a speaking offer like a reflection. To describe to a congregation how Lindsey assisted her in taking her works from demos to classics. She did this in Nashville on the 2015 tour, it was sweet.

I donít think you really thought about this. He was fired from the band and he sued. It wasnít amicable and he was the person who shaped the music and made them stars. Stevie and Mick were the two cocaine addicts who put the band through hell.

Why would they be invited? He wouldnít want to be used by Stevie $ Mick again for attention. They treated him like garbage.

This thread is really depressing but I'm sure his kids would've eulogized. His brother probably would've offered a reflection. And generally when musicians have a funeral, a fellow industry professional speaks.

I imagine Stevie could best articulate his massive impact on popular rock music. I'm being impartial. He worked closest with her and longest.

I mean I guess the Fritz guys could've spoken. How old are they any way? Does any one know if they're the same age as Lindsey?

Very interesting and macabre question. I suppose that his wife and maybe his three grown children will set the agenda for his funeral, including invitations, notices, and so on. When we were last hearing publicly from his wife, she was not all that happy with the other members of Fleetwood Mac, right? Based on what I vaguely recall from her tweets, posted here, she did not seem in the receptive frame of mind.

Another interesting and less macabre question: If Lindsey and Chris are still friends, why wouldn't they record and release another Buckingham McVie album? From Christine's perspective, what else is she doing, other than waiting for a vaccine so that Mac can go back on the road, which could be never? Is it possible that Lindsey plans to incorporate Christine into his new album, not as a co-equal (it's going to be called "Lindsey Buckingham," after all, not "More Buckingham McVie") but as a guest artist?

Questions, questions!

My most pressing question is whether someone is going to release the rest of those 1980 concerts from Tucson, Omaha, and London, from which we got a few cuts for the deluxe batch a few years ago?

He shouldn't ask her, because she's not a real friend. She's a company woman. Her loyalty is only to the FM brand. I lost so much respect for my lifetime heroine. She and Lindsey could have rode into the sunset playing theaters together(that would have been my dream come true). Instead, she let that old bi*ch throw him under the bus. She's not a real friend. He's better off without her.

OFFS.

Look, if Lindsey had the power to sprinkle his studio fairy dust into rock stardom, why did his six solo albums sell less than the six post-Peter, pre-BN Fleetwood Mac albums? And, donít give me that dipsh*t ďhis solo albums werenít meant to be commercialĒ crap. His songs on OOTC are interchangeable with his TITN songs. Stevie had the most overall Top 40 hits and Christine had the most of the bandís Top 40 hits. I mean, yeah Lindsey is a brilliant producer, but the freakshow is what moved albums, not his production. Stevie had more Top 40 hits produced by Jimmy than Lindsey.

You know why Lindsey talked about the ď43 year legacy?Ē Because thatís all he has. Stevie has her Hall of Fame solo career and Mick, John, and Christine have their blues roots, which, hey, Mick got the likes of Pete Townshend and David Gilmour to celebrate earlier this year. John McVie was the bassist of record on the breakout albums by John Mayall, Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Aynsley Dunbar, Mick Taylor, Mick Fleetwood, Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Lindsey Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks. Thatís ten Hall of Famers, two multiple inductees. They worked their butts of touring and playing the game and have more storied careers to show for it than Lindsey.

Most of Lindseyís albums didnít occur in his prime and he was always saving stuff for Fleetwood Mac. Plus, he had to turn the slop Stevie handed in into workable songs.

You are also forgetting that not all of Stevieís hits were written by her and she had plenty of help from Tom Petty, Don Henley, Prince... Lindsey **** is all his own and he doesnít need any help.

but that's exactly it. did you hear her talking about him the last few years? it's almost every single time to say how he was a lazy pothead bum while she worked to support them. why would his family want that?

fellow musicians - and he is very respected among his peers - yes, definitely. those people can appreciate and voice his massive impact. just read all the killers interviews coming out now. someone who will belittle him and make it all about themselves? that person should not talk.

i am also not sure that he worked the longest with her. they know each other for a long long time, since they were teenagers. but their working relationship was just in spurts since what? 1982 Mirage?


that said, i hate the premise of this thread and was trying really hard not to click on it or reply.

I do not think Stevie would give a good eulogy since she makes everything about herself. I would not ask her to speak. Mary and Barry was her complaining that at her fathers funeral, her brother made it all about himself. Well, Stevie suffers from the same disease.

Mick would probably give a very good eulogy, albeit insincere, but heís been such a horrid creature that I donít think that he should even be invited.

I donít know, ask Richard to speak.
