Looks pretty comprehensive, although I wish his solo version of "Steal Your Heart Away" (from that '97 Best Buy CD) was on there. And a couple more from "Law and Order" would've been nice. Great to finally get a remastered version of "Holiday Road"!
Stephanie made the cut! Love the live tracks and remastered OOTC tracks.

Thanks, exactly my point

yes!

FANTASTIC NEWS, all of it - anthology, song choices, live stuff, new songs, getting CDs with tour tickets, ticket prices, meet and greets - all of it!! perfect venues and perfect pricing too.

come over to LB forum and discuss all this music with us (i know you cannot fly in for the tour), no reason to stay here with a bunch of people still bickering.

I'm not going to sit here and diss Finn's solo works and downplay his status internationally but considering Fleetwood Mac has been 'Americanized' since the 70's, outside of Crowded House Finn is pretty much a non-entity here. I know roughly of Crowded House and Don't Dream It's Over but when they announced he was joining the band me and pretty much all my friends and family had to google him to be frank because the name didn't ring a bell.

If we are going to go one step further, Buckingham has had 5 Top 50 albums on Billboard. As far as I'm aware, Finn has 0 though he has made the Heatseeker chart twice. Now that has nothing to do with artistry obviously but I'm using that to gauge name recognition and popularity in the states.

Now, even though I've stated how I feel about the incarnation of the band and how I loathe how they've gone about this and the utter destruction and implosion of their greatest line-up (and to that point their on-going legacy), I like this guy Finn. I like his attitude about the whole affair. I like how he's reached out in the media and downplayed the term "replacement" when it comes to Lindsey. I like his respect for the band and the legacy. I like him in general. And I have no doubt he will contribute a good deal to the band if this era continues past this tour.

Thanks Elle, I've been to the Lindsey forum of course to express my delight. I have to confess that I have been foolishly hanging here because I get too much FOMO hearing about everyone's ticket purchases. Its even worse when people complain about them not coming to their state specifically or that they have to drive 4 hours or something relatively short to get there.... I mean seriously!
Big love to you

Agreed. Watching him during the BuckVie shows was so enlightening. He was relaxed and quite free.

Yes the tracks are incredible but missing Loving Cup which is my favorite Lindsey solo song. It has a great hook and showcases his amazing guitar work. Not sure why this song gets overlooked. In 1984 my local rock station had it in major play for about a month.

It wasn’t really allowed, I got a 10 day ban. But I don’t regret saying what many people in this board think. Yes, I will claim to speak for others just like you do.

For someone who spends hours each day taking shots at people but keeping the language just tame enough to keep under the mods radar screen, you have ridiculously thin skin. And you are the primary reason few people want to engage on this forum. You can’t let 90% of posts go without comment, it’s an absurd obsession. You also have to steer discussion into the direction you want. And you’re a misogynist.

Try taking a breath once in a while when you read a post you don’t like. Try expressing your feelings about Stevie Nicks using adult words. Try to avoid needing to rally people to your side like you’re in high school. Let this be a true discussion board - where people are allowed to express themselves without getting pounded on the head by you each time. Just some advice.

Yes. This will be the first FM tour I have missed since 1982, but I will definitely be in DC to support Lindsey in October.

I realize that it's no holds barred here these days, BUT PERSONAL ATTACKS LIKE THIS ARE UNACCEPTABLE.

That's why Elle rarely comes here anymore.

All YOU need to do is block me, yet you won't.

With the exception of the M word, that was certainly not a personal attack but more offering some personal advice on how to make this forum a better, more positive place for everyone that hasn't been driven away. It's never a bad idea to work on personal improvement.

And you are certainly not in a position to speak on behalf of Elle, she is more than capable enough to do this on her own if she so chooses. If she is fed up with the constant bickering on the Rumours forum then one only needs to look at who is at the centre of this problem every time and realise THAT is the actual issue.

Thatís how it was in 1987. Lindsey quit on Aug. 6 and the first show was Sept. 30. Itís Rock and Roll, not rocket science.

In my opinion, it's pretty clear they are doing the bare minimum to hobble everything together for the next 8-10 months of touring. All talks of possible new music? that sure ended quick and now looks to be replaced with yet another greatest hits/box set for their 50th anniversary. Who saw that coming? LOL...
Whoís to say that there wonít new music on the box?

They've had plenty of time to...record a single song.....
How do you know they havenít?

Finn and Lindsey are cut from very similar cloths. Theyíre both the type to place art over commercial viability.

Nobody suggested they did.

He is. Verifiably. Maybe not a megastar, but heís internationally famous. Finn was awarded an OBE (Officer of the British Empire), a couple of steps below knighthood, for his contributions to music. So clearly heís achieved some level of noteworthiness.

He had more than one hit, and the last time FM had a hit was 28 years ago.

I donít know if heís miraculous, but he was awarded an OBE (Officer of the British Empire) for his contributions to music.
