lol. well, internets are not always right.

but i'll happily go with "contempt or a deep repugnance" "be repelled by, find intolerable, deplore" - and dislike is way too mild of a word, the same as hate is way too strong.

The song I groove to the most of Bob's Fleetwood Mac years is Angel.

Good one. Silver Heels is a great groove too
They are all pretty darn good. Like Chris he was very good at song creation so there are not really any bad McVie or Welch songs.

Flash forward to today. Bob is looking down on Lindsey....told ya so.
Well... I'd say that after five very successful albums between 1975 and 1987 (including one of the top five most successful of all time), the various reunion tours, and the R&RHOF induction, I don't think "told ya so" works here. If given the chance, do you really think LB would've heeded Welch's advice and never joined FM? Despite this ugly ending, LB still sounds immensely proud of all they accomplished together, as he should be. Just cuz something ends badly doesn't mean it was a total failure from start to finish.

I never said LB regretted joining FM. I never said LB is not proud of his work with FM.
WTF?
My post was something about a chance encounter that I find fascinating. I mean what are the chances these guys run into each other at a restaurant right after Bob left and Lindsey joined. Even Mick wrote about how Lindsey was not the easiest fit to the band. I just thought it was a funny memory because it gave insight to working with the band.
Mick can throw people overboard easily as the history of the band reveals.

The "told you so" remark was how Mick acts and had nothing to do with accomplishments.

I think “Miles Away” might be my favorite of Bob’s.

And that was back when they just “thought” they were famous. Imagine what they acted like when they actually “became” famous.
