But I do think stipulating that "the words you say in the public forum should all be positive" ... is really quite extreme. I mean, come on. Why would anyone agree to be a moderator if they couldn't say how they feel about a song, a performance, a personnel move if it's at all negative? We're all adults here and can handle reading each other's opinions.
Exactly. I agree 100%.

What FM fan would want to mod here, if they weren't allowed an opinion? I'm sure they're really raking in the dough, doing their mod job here.

It is perfectly ok to share your views to your friend's in a private message but the words you say in the public forum should all be positive. If you can't do that perhaps you should go back to being just a regular member of TL and then you can continue bashing band members and no one would say, "there is no one moderating The Ledge any longer." IMHO
Thank the lord, that's not my job. And never once has Michele ever said to me I can't have my own opinions. She's asked me to make sure you guys don't kill each other. Which I've locked threads and shut things down.
And guess what: When I did that, people got mad at me.

The moderators discuss certain issues when decisions are made whether to suspend, move threads, etc. As I've said to before, if you don't like it, take it up with Michele. She's made it quite clear that having problems with band members in not a violation in her book. As much as you'd like to take them away from me, I'm entitled to my opinions.

I get paid in comments like that. I guess some people only care about band members' feelings and not the people they interact with on a daily basis. I'm guessing this is because some people can't be disagreed with.

Oh well. I have thick skin. And I bow to Louie!! You warned me!!!

I'm talking about the band. People rake LB and MIck over, too. This place would have 2 people if we kicked everyone out.

Go visit some FB, IG or Twitter accounts. It's mild here people.

Wow, so it may get ugly. I've heard nothing from my sources about any legal matters. They got that s** locked up tight.

Wonder if it's true.

Here it is:

Ex ‘Fleetwood Mac’ Star Lindsey Buckingham Slams Band In Shocking Lawsuit: ‘I’ve Only Gotten Radio Silence!’


Lindsey Buckingham said he was heartbroken when he was suddenly cut off from Fleetwood Mac, and now the former lead guitarist is suing his former bandmates for breach of contract after he was dropped from the band’s North American tour, according to court documents obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com

In a suit filed at Los Angeles Superior Court, Buckingham, 69, said he and other members — Christine McVie, John McVie, Stevie Nicks and Mick Fleetwood — signed with Live Nation for a 60-show tour over the next two years, with each member poised to make about $12 to $14 million.

Buckingham claimed everyone in the band wanted to start the tour in August 2018, but he asked to push it to November because he wanted to work on his solo album. Nicks reportedly only wanted to do three shows a week, which meant the band’s North American tour would take even longer.

The star said he and the other members agreed to Nicks’ request, and the band managers negotiated with LiveNation for 60 shows in North America, which included Buckingham.

In the affidavit, Buckingham said from December 2017 to January 2018, he also was exploring his options on whether he could embark on a small tour to promote his solo album.

Buckingham claimed he made it clear he considered the Fleetwood Mac tour as a priority and would do “whatever was necessary” to participate on the tour. However, about a week after the band performed at the Jan. 28 MusiCares event, Buckingham said he was suddenly dropped not only from the planned tour, but also from the band he helped create.


Buckingham said he has repeatedly reached out to members of the band. In an email to Christie McVie, Buckingham wrote:

“After forty-three years and the finish line clear in sight, it’s hard to escape the conclusion that for the five of us to splinter apart now would be the wrong thing. Wrong for the beautiful legacy we’ve built together. Wring for our legions of loyal fans who would hate to see the final act be a breakup. Wrong for ourselves, and all that we’ve accomplished and shared together.”

Buckingham said after he sent the email, he also offered to fly to Maui to meet with Nicks and Fleetwood, but his offer was rebuffed by both.

Buckingham said while continued to make efforts to keep the band together, the other members allegedly “secretly, and unceremoniously, moved on without him, including hiring contract players to replace Buckingham’s iconic vocals and guitar parts on the live performances of the recordings” he created.


“On information and belied the other Partners, by wrongful excluding Buckingham, have sought to enrich themselves at Buckingham’s expense. Buckingham brings this lawsuit in order to assure his rights to the usurped Fleetwood Mac Partnership opportunity.”

In an interview on the CBS show “This Morning” on April 25, 2018, Fleetwood said, “This team wanted to get out on the road and one of the members did not want to get out on the road for a year.”

Buckingham is suing for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage.


In an email to Fleetwood dated February 28, 2018, Buckingham wrote he wondered whether the rift between him and the other band members was possibly caused by attorneys and management.

“In times past, the band has always relied on it’s center, it’s heart and soul to work through difficulties when they arose. But now, those around the edges — attorneys, management — have stepped in and rendered that center silent and impotent. Because of this, the only info and insights I’ve been able to get about things have come from those on the edges. And consequently, I wonder if there hasn’t been an undue amount of intrigue and misinformation thrown into the mix. All of this breaks my heart.”



No idea if it's true or not but it's certainly interesting.

I'm not certain it's true, but I would definitely love the idea that the Goat Queen would have to tour just to pay legal damages to Lindsey. Karma

Thank you. You've been quite kind and fair to me.

If Lindsey sues, he better make it quick. Don Felder still gets paid big bucks for every Eagles tour when they play his songs.

It could get really ugly. Not sure if the accuracy of Radaronline. The article reads like the RS interview so who knows.

Oh man. A lawsuit really would put the kibosh on any reunion down the road. I hope it's not true, but that article is very specific. If it's not true, they're pulling a lot out of their rear ends.
