I took it from Mick Fleetwood's Twitter. It might have been taken at the Classic West show, I'm not sure.

I actually stole it lol. My friend works for a singer that was on a tv show & was a huge pain in the a** throughout the whole run. He’s always telling me stories about the insane sh*t her coworkers had to do to pacify her & when I asked why they didn’t just throw her off, he said “ratings. she’s a 5 foot tall sack of money so they do whatever she wants”. I’ve used it to describe Stevie’s role in FM ever since.

As ridiculous as this whole thing is, and as devastated as I am, I realized today that maybe this is actually a fitting way for the band to come to an end. For over 40 years, FM has been fueled by the conflict of Lindsey striving to be an artist vs. the others striving to be wise business people. Maybe this ending is more poignant than a final tour where everyone gets along and celebrates their career.

As I said elsewhere, this doesn't make sense to me.

I don't understand why they didn't just tell him that they wouldn't accommodate him, and that if he didn't like it, he could leave.

Why fire him just for asking?

Losing Lindsey will hurt their sales. It's a BAD business decision to fire him if he's willing to stay despite not getting his way.

There has to be more to it.

Agreed there has to be more. It's so insulting, and 4 days in, it doesn't hurt any less. I actually cannot listen to their music. Am so disgusted with them all. All 5 that is--they couldn't get it together.

Why are you disgusted by Lindsey? What did he do? When they still didn’t want to give him his solo tours dates between FM tour dates, he finally postponed his solo tour and they fired him anyway.

Where did you get the impression that they simply fired him for just asking?

From the scenario that was posted, I got the impression that they felt he was asking for too much. They found his request unreasonable. They fired him.

ETA: It's like if you go to your boss and you say, "I'm really valuable to this organization and I deserve a considerable raise." Maybe it was presumptuous of you to ask, but typically, you'd expect the boss to either say "Yes" or "No." What you wouldn't expect is for the boss to say "You're fired!" If he/she does, then you were fired for asking, weren't you?

However, as I said in my post. I believe there's more to it than that in this case.

Maybe, the "more to it" in this case would be Lindsey asked, they said no. Lindsey then insisted, putting his foot down, believing they would pretty much HAVE to go along with his request, they still said no. Both sides stood their ground which led to the unfortunate firing.

I guess I don't totally understand the situation, because it seems to me that if it was purely a business decision, it would have been much better not to fire him. Now they are risking selling far fewer tickets at shows. I think if they did a tour and LB did solo shows on off days, it would have little or no impact on ticket sales for Mac shows. I think that a vast, vast majority of people would either go to both shows or only the Mac show in their area, whereas with the new lineup, far more people will just stay away from the Mac show. So it being a business decision makes no sense to me.

The other thing I'll add is that I'm seriously astounded that money could even come into this. If any of them are not already set for life, then it just speaks to horrible greed and a complete and utter lack of ability to live within an extraordinarily huge means. Very sad.

Kevin
