Waddy was the more obvious replacement for Bob. Obviously, it worked out for everyone, but Waddy was much more in line with the prior Fleetwood Mac guitarist.

That is a very nice tribute cover. The backing band has faithfully reproduced the original instrumentation. Maureen has a soft, warm alto Christine probably would have liked. She warbles a bit, but her never vibrato is never overdone.

But Christine sang with virtually no vibrato. Her distinctive vocals were reliant almost entirely on tone and phrasing. That "pure, dusky" voice is so difficult for any other singer to equal, let alone surpass.

Her nearest likeness is Dusty Springfield, who was still quite different. Her, Sandy Denny, and maybe Judy Collins. But even alongside these singers, Christine's voice stands apart. It's earthier, homelier, and yet somehow moodier and more mysterious.

Her voice was So Sincere, too. My exact thoughts were, "God, it's a nightmare to cover Christine. "

Great cover
The stories Waddy could tell
He was more than just "there".....he plays guitar solo on Sugar Daddy and is credited for it
Someone correct Waddy. Lindsey had another hit called Tusk. And who could forget Oh Diane!!!!!!!

That only counts halfway. It was only a hit because Lindsey left the band.

Yes, it peaked at #9 on the UK charts and dragged Mirage into the Top 10 there.

Scratch my back with a hacksaw. Hold Me flopped there yet Oh Diane became a big hit.

Big Love reached the top ten list in several countries. To achieve that, the song needed not only the fans but the masses in general (it needed single sales and radio airplay; nowadays the songs need downloads and streaming, too).

Back in 1987, I wonder how much did the masses find out about Lindsey's departure during the song momentum in radios. There was no internet, social networks. Yes the DJs may have commented about it, and it sure mattered to fans, but did it matter enough to the masses? Did they learn about all the story behind Lindsey departure? I'm not so sure about it.

It was a simple joke line that was not meant to start this debate again
