Not to even mention the whole BuckVie tour.

And now this.

It just doesn't compute.
You have captured the cognitive dissonance perfectly.

Are we sure Lindsey is out of Fleetwood Mac or is he just not touring this time around? Per their official statement,

"Lindsey Buckingham will not be performing with the band on this tour. The band wishes Lindsey all the best."

Seems to read as if he might still be a member of FM.

they'll see. Mick issues icy cold statement but still leaves the door cracked just in case tour without him bombs.

seriously though they said to one of the outlets that their decision is firm and final.

Fleetwood Mac - The Movie yet.
you know i was thinking that - THIS what they did now in their 70s is ensuring that FM the movie will be made. because it's crazier than all their drugged out crazy. they don't have the excuse of being young or high now. just greedy but i'm sure the movie will turn it in a tragic exploding relationship between the exes.

like Azoff said on his SiriusXM station about the non-identified band -
it's a special kind of art to watch some of the bands and what people in them do just to torture each other unnecessarily.
or something to that effect. rings true, doesn't it?

Much respect to the whole band for giving everyone the freedom to come and go as they please.

It’s shocking and it’s unexpected and it hurts.
But I think if people can put aside the drama machine and make an effort to not write the narrative for this band that probably never happened; we might find that we can allow ourselves to enjoy Mike Campbell’s jaw-dropping guitar playing.
He’s no Buckingham, but he is quite possibly the most gifted player I’ve ever heard in an arena setting.
everyone the freedom to come and go? what are you talking about???? you did read all these reports that Lindsey was FIRED, right? how is that coming and going as you please?

the drama is real. did you see Lindsey's daughter's IG post last night? "Fleetwood Mac isn’t Fleetwood Mac without you #prouddaughter"

she was responding to and liking people's outpours of love and support. she confirmed he was fired. Lindsey's brother also commented on her post.

many fans have heard this boiling (and didn't wanna believe it!) for the last 2 months.

if they were just not touring with him why would you say "we wish him all the best". You might say, "we wish him all the best and look forward to seeing where we go after the tour" or "we look forward to what the future brings" or something

I mean they aren't going to go out and bond with two new guys and then kick them out after the tour.....

I was thinking of the sh&t ton of money Lindsey loses out on by not doing this tour. And think of how much more some other people will get, because they are surely not going to cut Mike or the Finn guy in on a percentage, they'll get a salary of some kind.

So Stevie gets to do whatever solo music she wants (guarantee they'll do Stop Draggin with Mike there... and she'll get to tell a long story about Tom) and she'll get more money. She can't take it with her......

I can't help wishing the McVies weren't so damned British and would have more bollocks

that's not his personal house. that's a house he and his wife bought specifically for her to renovate and decorate and then sell, i.e. as part of her business. they've never lived in it and are still living where they've been living for years.

that said, she spent 4 years tearing down and rebuilding and then decorating it. that's a mega load of carrying costs for 4 years..... and they recoup nothing till they sell it.

Yep. Same here. At this point, when they're all so close to death, it's absolutely RIDICULOUS to do this to their brand. They could have ridden into the sunset shining like gold. But instead, they ride out looking like cheap whores.

F*ck the lot of them. Christine included. I'm done with their stupid asses.

It seems like they just make sh#t up to sell tickets. "He told me I can never leave the band again". This is a disgrace and I hope this tour flops VERY badly. I am going to be writing on social media when they advertise warning people about this fake band. The only person I might consider seeing is Lindsey solo, IF i hear he was wrongly thrown out. THIS SUCKS I have zero interest in seeing this cover band. ZERO!! And I literally can't stand the Chiffonhead anymore. You could see this building with her nasty comments the last few years. DONE!

There is no way any Bob Welch will be played. Even Lindsey songs wont be played (I don't consider The Chain a Lindsey song). They don't want to sound like a cover band. I am shocked at what people think they are going to play. Someone mentioned on another thread that I'm So Afraid will be played LOL
The worst mistake you can make is trying to imitate the person you are replacing.
Yeah, I'd agree there is little chance of them doing Bob Welch. And even if they did, it would feel quite disingenuous to me, since they (meaning Christine, Mick, and John) kept him out of the Hall and refused to acquisce one iota on that entire issue.

Same. I'll be leaving bad reviews left and right.

And even though I firmly believe it's Stevie's fault, I'm MOSTLY pissed at Christine, for allowing this to happen. After all the love I saw last year, I'm ASHAMED of her for not walking away with him. Zero class. Just a bunch of whores, they are.

The band of MY LIFE died yesterday. I'm mourning, and angry as f*ck.
