Lindsey was gonna tour solo in between Fleetwood Mac dates, the way Pretenders had some dates in between their shows with Stevie. they had entangled negotiations how, when, why, who like maybe how to advertise two tours. Lindsey was counting on Mac tour to help sort out his solo tour logistics. eventually after push and pull it ended up Mick and Stevie vs Lindsey. she told Mick - it's him or me. Mick washed his hands of any guilt and went to promoters to ask whether they'll make more money of Lindsey-less or Stevie'-less tour. case closed of course! there was no option of the whole 5 tour on the table. they should have worked it out. instead they threw Lindsey out and went with the money.

I feel silly even getting involved in this speculation, but why would Stevie have a problem with Lindsey doing solo shows? Why would she make it it's either him or me over him wanting to do some solo shows between the Fleetwood Mac tour? I don't understand the thought here. There has to be more.

I'm hoping we hear more when they start promoting the Fleetwood Mac tour. Unless they totally sidestep these obvious questions, we should find out more information within a few months. All this speculating does is spread more hate and anger.

Jamie, I agree. Perfectly stated.

IMO itís up to the band to address this stuff and prevent the spread of hate and anger. And they should do it pronto. If they werenít ready to go public yet, then whomever told Billy Burnette should have kept their mouth shut. The cats out of the bag now. Attempts to sidestep questions about Lindseyís departure are going to make it worse.

Iím hoping for a Buckingham tell-all in depth interview. After this I truly canít see him ever going back again to work in any way with any of them. So I hope the man gets his story out there and helps drive the narrative instead of just letting the other side do it.

Yes, I think the problem now is that Billy leaked it out. It wasn't very mature of him to spill everything in advance of the band, even if he was offended that they didn't call him.
The strange fact is that surely his profile isn't run by him himself so it was premeditated, not a rash decision.

Well, Billy Burnette whether we want to admit it or not did spend many years in Fleetwood Mac when nobody else would. He lasted longer than Peter Green or Bob Welch. I would understand how he would be upset that he wasn't chosen. At least he knows all the usual songs. Do Mike or Neil? If it was just a touring band for the get rich quick tour Billy would actually have been a better choice.

...Billy Burnette never quit Fleetwood Mac. Mick dissolved the Time band when he knew there was a chance he could get Stevie and Lindsey back on board. That made sense for Mick but its a big kick in the butt for a guy who had given a number of years commitment to the band.

From what I read Billy heard about the Lindsey situation from Mick. He only put out his tweet several days after some people had already been discussing it on social media. He probably thought it was out in the open and fair game.

I find it incredible that there is nothing on the Fleetwood Mac FB page except that stupid penguin logo. That has just allowed hundreds of people to vent their spleen without a response from the band. This may have been possible in 1987, pre-Internet; now it is a sign of the very usual ineptitude and cluelessness of the band's managers. By this time they should have had their ducks in a row.

And I don't blame Burnette for talking. If I were in his shoes I would have done the same thing, and probably in more caustic terms.

He should do it as quickly as possible, before the band's lawyers find some nondisclosure clause in his contract with the band and get an injunction order against him.
