I think after that tour she realized that she needed to do something with her solo career and get something new out there. She seems open to doing another Mac album, but just not this year. So I say that is completely fine. I just hope it isn't like SYW where FM goes into the studio while Stevie is still on the road and its very disjunct again.

Also, 3-6 months? Wouldn't it be interesting if Stevie and Lindsey released their albums on the same day?
Yeah,

The comparison in the sales figures would be interesting.

They sure did, and it was awesome! Where in Scotland are you? Aberdeen here.

I hope so! I'd love an album sometime in the next year but realistically we're talking in the next 2-3 if it is done at all. Say You Will is a mess but it had truly great moments.

Would it? I reckon Lindsey enters the US chart somewhere in 80-120 and Stevie breaks the top 10 but both are gone from the charts within a couple of weeks (Lindsey will on manage an entry on the release week and then drop right off). I don't know the figures artists need to get those positions these days but I think it'd be about 80,000 to 100,000 for Stevie and 10,000ish for Lindsey.

I wish Lindsey tweeted. Maybe Dave Stewart would know

Doesn't take much to reach the Top 10 (depends on the time of year). This is what the Top 10 Albums sold this week on Billboard.

1. 203,000 - Sugarland (debut)
2. 184,000 - Kings of Leon (debut)
3. 80,000 - Elton John and Leon Russell (debut)
4. 79,000 - Rod Stewart (debut)
5. 65,000 - Lil Wayne
6. 48,000 - Glee Soundtrack (debut)
7. 46,000 - Shakira (debut)
8. 43,000 - Eminem
9. 37,000 - Third Day (debut)
10. 36,000 - Darius Rucker's

Thanks, Michele. I haven't been able to listen to it yet.

Oh I agree. Getting SYW was better than no FMac album. I love Thrown Down... Murrow... Destiny Rules... SYW... Bleed to Love her. There are some gems worth having.

The way I interpreted that part of the conversation was that Lindsey shows up in the studio, Mark and/or Brian are like "Lindsey good to see ya, we'll be on the air soon. Sooo, what have you been up to?", Lindsey briefly mentions there's been an album he's been working on, he later is on air and then comes the "I hadn't thought I'd be releasing another solo album so soon" style comment. I could be very much reading into it, but it sounded to me like he was following up on something that had been briefly mentioned off-air and not confirming or even mentioning that actual thing just yet. Probably would have thought nothing of it if the subject hadn't come up just before, but because it did....

That doggone Judd Apatow being there prevented us from getting all the information we could!

If Christine was there, Stevie would want to do it, even if she was mad at Lindsey, because she wouldn't want to be left out. But heck, even if she didn't want to do it with Christine there (which would never happen), I'm happy with what Lindsey and Christine could do without her (Tango). So, it would work for me either way.

Lindsey seems to think he might have had 20% of the power with Christine there and he thinks now he has half of it. He's wrong. He had more power, more leverage before. If he Mick and Christine agreed, that was all it took. Today, he can't get anything done without Stevie.

I don't think he does want Christine back, but he should.

Even as I was writing my comment, I was thinking that 'forcing' someone to do an album isn't the best for album quality. Still, they are definitely not getting any younger and there is only going to be so big of a window of time to get albums accomplished. I'm sure Stevie wants to do a solo album and I don't blame her for that, but she needs to work with FM, too.

Well, to chili's point, if she has to be forced to do it, then she should just quit.

ETA: If they are planning on doing another Mac album, then I suspect, fortunately/unfortunately, that it would fit Stevie's hint about the Mac having one more "kick-a**" album in them. That tells me that if she'll do it at all, she wants a swan song--and in that case, I guess I do understand why she'd want the break to do a solo album first.

I'm from Linlithgow, but in Glasgow just now for Uni. The Glasgow show was indeed amazing, was expecting Stevie to steal the show but Lindsey really was the star of the show!

Thrown Down is my favourite track on the album, but let's not forget Running Through The Graden and Everybody Finds Out - they kick ass!

I was just in Glasgow the other weekend. I'm there a fair bit - always great.
