yes to all of this.

i think people have also discussed they'd love to see Lindsey solo playing glasto and a number of other festivals, not as a headliner but the way he played that cool San Francisco festival last September. or with his band. either way.

yeah same as if the band continued in the direction he pushed them on Tusk - he said many times if they did, he would never have a need for solo outlet.

he tried the 2nd time with Say You Will - many of his songs were much edgier than regular FM sound. he hoped maybe now when they were older and happily reunited the band would be on board with just making interesting music together. the man is not egomaniac and just cares about making and putting out music, any way he can.

The current band is boring in my opinion. The set list isn't much different then previous tours. They throw in 5-7 songs they have either never performed live or ones not performed in ages but the rest of the show is stuff they have played to the death. Even with new players it doesn't hide the fact that 1) They are mostly sticking to the same old same old and 2) They have nothing new to offer in terms of music. If they make new music it will only be so SN can give an F - U to Lindsey. It is sad that the band is ending things as a stale nostalgia act.

I still can't believe FM fired Lindsey Buckingham! Its' creative genius! That was a dumb ****ing move if any band ever had one!

NF and MC are contracted players doing songs they have never done before. They're having fun and taking care of their pension fund.

It is indeed sad that the rest of the Rumours 5 is letting SN dictate their end as nothing more than a cover band instead of one of the biggest bands in rock history.
