Creative tension fueled the music but it was Lindsey’s hard work that turned them into accessible songs with a distinct sound that made them all rich and paid for their habits and addictions: in the studio - finding the perfect sound or arrangement (even placing an importance on the order of the tracks on the album); the rehearsals, the attention to detail to put on a perfect show night after night, much like a Broadway musical (even if that brought with it very rehearsed speeches); and finally, his efforts to marry a solo tour with the big machine perhaps which would allow fans reasonably priced access to see the genius behind the FM sound likely would not reflect well on the big corporate machine. All of the hard work, supposed friendship and loyalty is simply tossed aside and termed a “business decision” after consulting with 20 promoters. To be human is to be empathetic and I can sense his pain.

I'm just thinking of all of the money that I will be saving by not going to any Fleetwood Mac shows.

Bring on the Lindsey solo tour dates. I hope it happens. #istandwithLindsey

Cool Hmm...

I hope I can say this here, without getting annihilated. LOL

I think Mick and Stevie are from the same cloth. They like to flitter around, doing very little, but wanna be RICH AND FAMOUS. Yes, they love to make music, but the way they "work" is probably shown best in Stevie's In Your Dreams DVD (I bought it and watched 1 time). She's all about hanging out, spending time with friends and having a good time...oh, and singing a bit too. "I don't wanna be a cleaning lady."

Lindsey and Christine seem similar in that they don't shy away from really hard work. We know LB practically LIVES in the recording studio and is perhaps, constantly coming up with riffs, lyrics, musical interludes, etc. I think his brain churns constantly with music. Chris missed playing music SO MUCH and that was the reason for her return.

I'm not trying to bash...honestly. I read the post by lbfan about Lindsey and hard work and it just....kinda hit me.

This is so well thought out and written. I think it makes some excellent points that I haven’t seen so far in any discussions. I agree that Lindsey’s disappointment must be heart breaking. So much so that even his family feels it as well.

You're not going to be annihilated for your opinion... you're pro-Lindsey LOL! Seriously though, I think you're giving too much credit to Christine regarding how similar she is to Lindsey with regards to work habits. Christine was retired for several years and didn't tour at all- yes, she recorded an album but it didn't take her long and she is very hands off. Making one album in 15 years just isn't that much.

Touring is hard work and exhausting, but Stevie clearly enjoys it because she does it a lot. Recording is also hard work and exhausting, but Lindsey clearly enjoys it because he does it a lot. These three don't have to do anything anymore, unless they want to, so clearly they're doing it because they enjoy it. But comparing Christine to Lindsey in the studio, I think, is like comparing apples and oranges, and he puts in a lot more work in the studio than she does- but that's because he enjoys it so much. Not a slam on her work ethic.

no need to be snarky. this is Lindsey-board, so people who love him have every right to feel protected here. and luckily, the time when Stevie fans would come on Lindsey board and spit all over him is in the past.

Elle, it was an attempt to be lighthearted and you read way too much into it. Honestly.

Beautiful, Christy!

I think Lindsey and Christine share the same passion for music. They're musical partners. But while Lindsey breaths music, Christine doesn't. Also, I'm not criticizing her work ethic. She doesn't feel it the same way he does. And that's why I love him so much.
