Chris Stapleton would be a great person to sing material with the HB or to guest on tribute album (although I am not a fan of tributes).

As would Stevie. Projects like that, the 2006 TP tour, the Foo Fighters stuff, bring the best out in her.

She should’ve gone that route already instead of the new FM farce.

Buster, we have never agreed so much. I agree on both ends.

Everything he is saying in the article is very plausible and I very much encourage him to pursue those dreams. Mike, don't waste your time with FM.

if she had gone that route, she also wouldn’t have alienated/angered so many of her fans.

glad you said "also" - because yes, right now, the most alienated people are many many Stevie fans (the rational ones, not the cult followers).

it's not LB fans who are alienated - we just call the spade a spade about what happened and are not burying our heads in the sand, but most of us are delighted that he can finally stop wasting his precious time waiting around. and that we don't have to cough up bug bucks to Mick just to be able to see LB live in the years when he was stuck with FM. but Buck-Nicks, FM and many Stevie fans are really alienated and disappointed, as is so visible in all posts here and all over social media - and i really feel bad for them.

There are some really nasty nasty people defending her. OMG. It makes this place look like pre-school.

Hmmm, I think if she'd chosen to go off and work with The Heartbreakers straight away she'd have alienated and angered just as many people, if not more, surely.
The best thing she could have done is go into the studio with Fleetwood Mac, do a tour (with all 5 members) and then go off and do something as a guest vocalist with The Heartbreakers in a few years time.

I see. Yes, I have seen a lot of that as well.

You’re probably right. I’m in the very small minority, but I don’t care that Stevie didn’t want to record a FM album. The magic of the Rumours era band ended a long time ago and it just would have been a few Stevie songs slapped on with no real cohesion or heart.

There’s so much complaining about Stevie and the lack of a FM album, but look what happened instead - a great BuckMcVie album and tour. So much better than a forced FM one.

Stevie should have kept on with what clearly energizes her - solo tours and things like the HB possibility. Instead she chose helping to ruin (I don’t hold her fully responsible) the opportunity for an honorable goodbye tour for one of the greatest bands to walk the earth. And, contrary to her BS about wanting to dance happy in her house, she seems pretty unhappy with her “new” band. It came across very clearly in her weak performance on Ellen despite her forced smile and elaborate hand gestures.

What disappoints me most as a Stevie fan is watching her go from her best tour in years, finally freeing herself from pathetic setlists of Bob Seger covers for whatever reason and singing what she wants and then making a mess of FM.

It's kind of hard to take your post seriously when you lead with an insult. Why are we even talking about fans? I think a huge part of the problem is that this has strayed way too far from the music itself which is always going to be good. I mean this is a Fleetwood Mac message board still right?
