I have tried and tried to stop this but the moderators don't care and often participate in these activities themselves. They make up the rules as they go along to fit their own agendas. its totally ridiculous. Sorry it is happening to you now.
I could see you jumping up and down typing that, too.

I'm starting to forget which came first: The Ledge, or JohnL complaining about The Ledge.

I'll never give up hope for that Christine McVie blues album, btw (sad as that may be).

I rest my case with you and the so called moderator. Were either of you addressed in my response? Absolutely not. Do both of you and about 5 others here insist on dropping negativity into every post...absolutely.

Oh, lighten up. We're clearly joking around, and no one said anything "mean spirited."

I think she really invested her hopes and dreams into that album and probably thought it would go platinum or something like that and then when it didn't it left a bad taste in her mouth about releasing new albums in this day and age.
Then she should drop the pretense that she is still a 'prolific writer. A real artist would simply keep creating despite low sales. To her fans, the only evidence we have of her creativity is what she releases for consumption. It is worse to NOT release new music, because you lose your core fans sooner or later as they get nothing to chew on. I can overlook her egotism and other annoyances but as a fan I struggle to maintain interest without new music on a regular basis.

You are so spot on. Of course!! A prolific artist would have written songs for the new Mac Album. (BuckVie) in this case. Said, "Hey, I still want to tour my new material, so can't tour until later because I have a new solo album and I want to tour this new album I have. Period.

Like you said, it's the pretense that irks me the most. It reminds me of the show Absolutely Fabulous where the main character pretends to be a world famous PR exec because she had a few clients in her prime. It's quite comical.

Like I mentioned earlier the well has pretty much run dry. Stevie was once by far the most prolific writer of the 3 . This has no longer been the case for years now I believe.It is almost like she had a finite amount of songs that she could write.

The phrases “in the throes of” and “loser Lindsey” are so amusing to me, I can’t stop giggling.

That was some pretty profound material on the Buckingham McVie album too, I might add. 👍🧐

You don't seem to be struggling to maintain interest at all, as you keep posting on these boards on a regular basis.

Indeed.
if nothing else, the posts on these boards are sadly amusing.

I promise to mend my ways thanks for changing my life. I did not realize I was posting here so much.

The Lindsey Delusion Syndrome on these boards keeps me interested. Not in the band so much as in the lunacy here.
