Nope she lives 3000 miles away and texted ME. “I’m so pissed at her”. I had nothing to do with it and she doesn’t even know about this board.

I'm a feminist, and have been for probably longer than you've been alive.

And that sentence and the connection you are trying to make with the first part of your statement (with which I agree) is just ridiculous.

Selective reading will give you the message you want. Some of the most vociferous voices against Stevie on here are equally brutal against Mick. What name should we label them for that? Are they racists against Brits?? Sizists against tall people??

Mick is by far the worst offender in the band given how he's handled himself over the years, especially in the name of "business".

It's just Stevie's actions now that are in the limelight because we know now through direct and indirect sources that this was her doing and, probably by the sounds of it, unjustified. Doing terrible things in the past doesn't justify being vilified years later, especially if you've made amends or tried to. Do I honestly think Lindsey is still the drugged out abusive person he used to be? No, just like I don't think Mick Fleetwood is a coked, sketchy individual who'll screw over anybody for a quick buck anymore.

But to ignore a person's bad behavior because the other person 'did some bad stuff' is senseless and irresponsible and partly the reason they are behaving like this in the first place, because no one calls them out on it. And that goes for anybody in the band, not just Stevie or Mick.

The old goat should have just left, and stayed solo. But old Dick needs her, for a bigger paycheck for his loser ass.

I can certainly see it. Most of us do. And have the right to speak out about it as long as we want to. It is OUR band, that was hijacked by a short sighted, selfish egotist.

So my positive would be that Lindsey will likely be happier and more fulfilled in his solo career now.

Majority rules! Hah! Stevie rules. This article is just more proof of that and makes it even more credible that it was she alone getting Lindsey fired.

You mean the one who’s sold 30 million albums as a solo artist and is about to be the first woman to be inducted into the Hall of Fame for the second time? While I’m not a huge Stevie fan, she clearly knows what she’s doing.

What other band in its right mind would allow a person whose musical knowledge extends to plonk plonk plonk on a piano to become its musical director?
Running the show isn’t the same as being musical director. I doubt they have anyone acting as a designated musical director.

With Mike fortuitously becoming available she saw her chance and took it.
I’m positive Stevie wishes Mike hadn’t become available.

.
30 million albums to be generous I'd give her half that amount for North America but she has never had Fleetwood Mac's international appeal .Except for Australia and New Zealand(not exactly the most populous areas) she has not had sustained mainstream popularity anywhere else as solo artist . Last I knew she has not been inducted yet.

Well, he already said "it was all Stevie", and she didn't deny it. Case closed.

see I"m not so sure. It rubs it right in Lindsey's face that she's the boss now, and everyone is soooooo happy and there's no fighting la la la la lah......
And *she* didn't have to say it, nor anyone in her camp...

Nothing about this whole thing surprises me anymore.

Why wouldn't Stevie be happy with this article? She IS he most capable person to run the show so what is wrong with stating the obvious? I think that she should get credit where credit is due. Imho the insistance of Mick and Lindsey that FM is a "real" band who happens to have 2 female players in it got really old over the years. Mick is the worst offender in downplaying Stevies and Christines archivements and I'm glad that that seems to be over now (In 1990, Mick told an interviewer that during the sessions for BTM he learned that Christine was more than a pretty face. He had the nerve to actually say that).

$he won't be happy being proclaimed the boss, especially after saying that $he wasn't...

And BTW, thanks for the new signature!
