Default Embrace the Petty With Lindsey Buckingham’s Fleetwood Mac Insult Generator

https://www-vulture-com.cdn.ampproje...c-insults.html

Any Fleetwood Mac enthusiast can tell you that the band’s virtuosic guitar hero, Lindsey Buckingham, is also a messy bitch who lives for the drama, which culminated this fall when he decided to sue his pals after they fired him from their recent tour for being a general sexagenarian curmudgeon. (And they fired him over the phone, no less.) He has since been on a crusade to hurl a bunch of amusing insults to the World’s Longest Feuding Band as much as possible, solidifying a petty legacy that kicked into gear when Fleetwood was in the studio and crooning about crystal visions in 1976.


Well, you can now carry a (metaphorical) piece of Buckingham around with you at all times thanks to the creation of our Insult Generator, which spews some of the most memorable disses he’s lodged against his own band over the past few decades. Just keep clicking the “don’t stop” button and, if you’re lucky, find a shawl-loving songstress to read along with you.

Still citing inaccurate information within the the main article.

amusing insults

Apparently they still don't have the story right. Thinking Lindsey was fired over touring schedule conflicts, stating he wanted to delay the tour till 2019. We all know that's not true. *SIGH*

The inaccuracies suck and paint a false picture of Lindsey, but I have to admit, this is pretty funny.

They need more variety, though. There's only, what, ten insults? Gets old quick.

These aren't even insults...

What a misguided attempt at comedy lazily and defamatorily put together by a Stevie or Irving hack.

It's the "Lone Voice of Reason" generator.

this could have been such a great LB meme.

instead, it's yet another vehicle in the arsenal of mixing quotes from the 80s with the new ones to confuse and make it look like LB is an a**hole who left the band on his own this year, again.

and yeah, LB needs to come up with some real insults. he's got decades of Stevie and a couple of years of Mick insults to make up!

All of the supposed insults are actually honest, clear-eyed observations. There’s nothing bitchy or drama-inducing about LB’s honesty here. If someone(s) were trying to defame him and/or make Stevie look better, they didn’t achieve their goal.
