Default Neil Finn -- Try Whistling This

For those unfamiliar with Neil Finn's post-Crowded House music, this is a good place to start. An album that came out in 98, during The Dance tour:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/tr...this/157505274

Ironically the two stand out tracks on the album are "Sinner" and "She Will Have Her Way".

Whatever happens people shouldn't hate on Neil Finn or Mike Campbell.
Its not their fault and their own behaviour hasn't been awful. They've been offered the gig and they took it. If it wasn't them it would have been somebody else.

Know what? It's NOT their fault, BUT, I have ZERO INTEREST in any future incarnations of FM. They can kiss my ass. Christine included.

I wish I could take back the roses I bought her last June. #skank

I will respond to this because I have been accused of hating Fin. I am happy for them if this is what they want to do. I know they see the dollar signs just like the rest of the band. Just because you don't like someone's music does not mean you hate someone personally. Yes, make no mistake, I hate Crowded House's music. It irks me just to say that name. Something about his voice has always bothered my central nervous system. I am not saying he cant sing. I just cant stand to hear that voice. I am not saying he has no talent either. I respect Campbell because I am a Hearbreakers fan. but I don't want to see him in Fleetwood Mac. I would rather he do a Heartbreaker tribute tour with a few different singers. I want to hear him play Heartbreaker music, not Fleetwood Mac.
Hope this makes sense.

Iíve always imagined FM covering this.
Maybe because it sounds like early 80ís CSN.

Why, when I read this post, do I visualise Macfan4life looking like this:
