Without going into it all, I no longer wish to be a member of this site. Not quite sure how to go about this but if possible, can a mod or admin please freeze/delete this account. Ty.

I can understand, but your posts are so refreshing and positive... I hope you'll reconsider but like I said before, I understand. I was looking forward to hearing more of your thoughts as FM started their tour.

Terribly sorry you're leaving and all, but these "delete my account" posts are so silly. What do you think will happen when your account is "deleted"? That all your posts will disappear? That's unfair to all the people who have responded to you because it renders their posts nonsensical, and it's not how a forum works.

That your name will disappear? It will be here if your posts are.

So just log out. Don't log back in.

You are no longer an active member.

Problem solved.

I expected a reply like this and this is what I would normally do. However in this case I have my own feelings and reasons.

I'm stating this specifically to the mods/admin - I wish for my membership to be deactivated if it might free up their servers a bit and not be too much trouble. They might as well because I won't be visiting again. I leave it up to them, it's their decision. I just hereby state my disassociation with this board.

Over and out, no further comment.

Sorry to see that quality, positive people are leaving the forum because a few members (we all know who they are) are flooding the site with venomous, angry, expletive-laden posts.

Late to post here, but this has happened on quite a few forums. It's not just a matter of being disappointed if their favourite band does something that they don't like. It goes much further and results in active hating on their (previously) favourite band.

I'm not sure I understand the psychology behind it, but it definitely happens across multiple bands.

Good grief. You should have been at this place when I was among a handful of people who stood up for and defended Billy and Bekka's talents and their place in Fleetwood Mac. You talk about real passion and vitriol...

Could you recommend which albums of theirs I could check out? I've been interested in FM members work, but some of the time I find the songwriting isn't as distinctive as I prefer. E.g. I just listened to Rick Vito's album Lucky Devils and it's very well performed and produced, but the songs don't stand out as excellent. They're very good songs, but not A+++. In my humble opinion. I have looked for Billy and Bekka's solo/other band music previously, but maybe haven't found the best choices to listen to.

EDIT: Am listening to Bekka's I Got News For You. She really is an excellent singer, but she needs quality songs to match her voice. The songs on her album are good, but again there need to be some A+++ songs.

In regards to Billy's solo work, I think Gimme You is his best album. Personally, I think the best work by both is the Bekka & Billy album. It really should have been a huge hit and it's a shame it wasn't.
