Default Goodbye Lindsey, I hardly knew ya

So Lindsey has been fired from FM, they say. A sad reality for FM fans to face and I will never really understand why it happened. Maybe it isn't even my business, but anyway. It will really change the sound of the band live or (tiny remote miniscule possibility) in the studio. Lindsey, your producing was amazing. From Tusk through to SYW you took the girls' (or girl's) songs and made them real works of art. But I must say, I never liked your own music very much. Always skippables, rather annoying diversions from the juicy songs from Stevie and Christine, to me and any friends I have who are into FM at all. You sure took up a lot of space on TITN and SYW and those albums feel like Lindsey solo albums made into FM albums, maybe when you realized your own solo albums would not sell or the labels were reluctant to work with you? Even on Buckingham McVie you was really into yourself musically. I downloaded Christine's songs from that one, anyway, you obviously brought a lot of life to them. So, goodbye Lindsey and thanks for the magnificent legacy which lives on in Christine and Stevie's songs on FM albums. Unless you return to FM in a studio, though, we will probably never meet again, buddy.

I have been primarily a Stevie Nicks fan, but I don’t defend her in the face of wrong decisions. Even in my love for Stevie, I will proclaim that Lindsey Buckingham is one of the greatest guitarist/producers in the history of rock n roll. He is the mastermind behind what has become known as the classic Fleetwood Mac sound. Without him, Fleetwood Mac becomes bland and uninspired (reference 87-90). Moreover, if you cannot hear inspiring perfection in iconic tunes like “Never Going Back Again”, “Second Hand News”, “I Know I’m Not Wrong” and “Big Love”, you may be missing an ear for good music. The dismissal of Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac is a musical crime. Shame! I wish the current lineup no ill will, but the decision makers have made a disastrous mistake. #WhoAreYouPeople?

I 100% agree.
And love that you specifically named I Know I'm Not Wrong. One of my favorite Lindsey songs ever.

Agreed. I became a fan of FM because of Stevie, but I love Lindsey and Christine just as much. I can actually find something to like in every variation of FM (even BTM and Time eras), but Lindsey was the creative force in this band and the energy of the live shows. When I took my mom to see FM on the last tour, she came along wanting to see Stevie and left being completely mesmerized by Lindsey. He will be severely missed.

I actually don't believe the remaining 4 realize just how much he will be missed. Mick touting a "new band" or saying FM has always been about various incarnations of themselves is just total BS to try to deflect the reality of the situation to fans. He's completely delusional

I've heard that from quite a few casual fans, who saw them for the first time. They went because of Stevie, but left, saying that Lindsey was the show, with all his energy.

Yet another reason Old Goat Breath wanted him gone.

Ha, I plan on seeing him in concert this year. Not so much FM. Lindsey is affordable and puts on one hell of a live show. Not to mention he'll be playing NEW music!!

I hope he also does FM songs he hasn't done in a long time (or never!). I also hope to hear som BV songs too. Not so much for BN.

Lindsey's actually so nice to fans. I was honestly surprised by all of the countless fan encounter stories I've heard. I don't know why I just wouldn't have expected it from him? According to just about everyone who interacted with/met him at shows as well as just random encounters and things like that, he's very open and approachable. He actually chats with the people and isn't afraid to get close to them.

I have also heard this from anyone who has ever had an encounter with him as fans. That he is warm approachable and down to earth .One girl I want to a show with years ago actually cried when she met him and he smiled and said "but will you still love me tomorrow"?

I very much agree. And I never would have
guessed he'd be that way. I'd have placed
money on the opposite.
