Wink Beware

Lindsey Fan in the Stevie Room. :wink:

Ok, I am primarily an LB fan, but I love this band. That doesn't mean I love every member, song or album, but overall, FM is my fave band ever. I love pre-SnL and some post SnL but I love the 5 Fireflies era the most. Lindsey may be #1 for me but Danny Kirwan is my 2nd fave. Stevie is third.

All that to preface my feelings on Stevie. She really disappoints me with how all of this has gone down. I find that when her songs come on the radio...I change the channel. I can't enjoy them right now and that upsets me because I love a lot of her music. Yes, I believe she had something to do with Lindsey's outster along with Mick. Thick as theves....those two.

As far as her legacy, away from the drama. It is fantastic, yes. She has written some of the most amazing, heart-wrenching songs that will forever be my favorites, no matter what. Gold Dust Woman was always my fave live SN song. It was magical. Beautiful Child, Storms, Landslide, all those touch my heart, especially as I have gotten older and experienced tremendous loss lately.

Her personality is a pill though. I know LB used to be a pill too but I think he is more chill today, whereas, Stevie has gotten more and more unlikable. She frustrates me. I wanna like her and her wierdness but cannot. Maybe I have changed too and don't want to put up with certain crap.

I think its best that Lindsey is doing his thing and the two of them get a FM tour break from each other. I will not be seeing this iteration on LB tickets.

It will be interesting to see what happens with FM and as more time passes from Tom Petty's loss.

Exactly my thoughts !!! I try to avoid all the negativity, but it's hard to ignore :-(

On topic: I'm still a Stevie-fan, always will be ... but I'm a music-addict, so lot of other artists that I admire. And yes ... her early work is her best I treasure that.

Denial is a powerful coping mechanism. It's definitely indicative of the direction that the board has been allowed to take over the last couple of years. As the orange menace would say: Sad!
A vaincre sans peril, on triomphe sans gloire.

Itís been a very long road for me to get here, and it began in 2006 when she toured with Tom Petty for free vs going back into the studio with FM. Stevieís refusal to record with the band even after Christineís improbable return greatly accelerated my being over Stevie. Iíve been a fan since 1993- Iíve waited for 25 years for a final album from the Rumours 5. So itís not like I havenít been patient. But Iím at peace with everything now. I donít really care what Stevie and the band do or do not do from here out. Itís wonderfully liberating to not have the stress of waiting for new Mac music dangling over me anymore. Iíll always have the wonderful music of the past to enjoy, and for the first time, thatís enough for me. No more stressing over cash grab oldies tours or ill conceived solo projects- just simple enjoyment of what we already have. Itís a wonderful feeling!
I agree with everything you said. I'm definitely not burning her old albums in protest, but I feel like the excitement is just gone. When I was young (before the internet) I would force my dad to call Modern Records to get information on release dates. Aside from the quality of her last release being pretty disappointing, I'm mostly over her explanations of whats wrong with the music industry and why she doesn't want to record anymore or write anything new.

Her music will always be an important part of my life but she has done and said many questionable things. Her lack of interest to recording and only focusing on touring I think is personally crazy. She is already up in years and new music just doesn't seem like it will happen again.

I think you secretly want her to be your best friend.

But it's over, it's done, it's a business deal that has nothing to do with any of us. Want to make a thread or two to vent your displeasure, also fine. But those folks who want to inject their venom into every thread in every forum are just plain nasty, and there's nothing you can post that's safe from them. I still lurk in hopes of picking up some news, but I can't tolerate the discussions. It's kind of like reading anything on Yahoo News....the article itself may be interesting, but reading the comments will make you renounce your faith in humanity.
My thoughts exactly...and they will all deny it is venom...but it is venom.
Love is a word and some entertain it...if you find have won the game baby
