Not that it matters to me what the reason was, but it is confusing when Lindsey made it very clear it was never meant to be a FM album.
I was just giving a “jokey” reply to Homer as to the reason why it wasn’t FM.
I don’t have an opinion in reality, just a light hearted aim at Mick....
I actually think it deserved to be BM in its own right it stands up.

It also sounds a lot better than "We sat around and waited for Stevie but Stevie does not like us so we did the album anyway." Of course it sounds better to say. "Oh yes, this was our intention the entire time. We just wanted to put out this duo album from the start.
I doubt anyone seriously believes that. Its just as bad what Stevie said that she did not go to the studio because albums don't sell. Both Lindsey and Stevie are liars about this recording.
They made it too difficult and confusing. They should have called it Fleetwood Mac, explained the Stevie didn’t participate in the project due to solo commitments, but is still a member of the band and will be participating in the band’s 2018 tour. It wouldn’t have been a lie and wouldn’t have put Stevie on the spot. It wouldn’t even be the first time the band made an album that didn’t feature an active member (Then Play On).

Sorry about my confusion, sue. With message boards and texting, sometimes it can be hard to tell when people are joking around. Thanks for setting me straight

exactly

but it's all over now, baby blue

p.s. re: Homer's joke: it's what one calls HYPERBOLE, a rhetorical trope used to make a point using exaggeration. ... and everybody here knows it! as is proven by the fact that NOBODY rose up in defense of the buttery-bittery goodness that is brussel sprouts!

It’s so idiotic especially now isn’t it? When all these self righteous people keep bringing up that Fleetwood and Mac are still there and therefore is Fleetwood Mac. Heeelllllllooooooo!?

Oh BuckVie shows were several levels of energy above any FM show in recent decades, no comparison there!

I guess the tame thing referred more to the album than anything.

What little I saw of the shows on YouTube they looked like subdued fully lit small venue affairs compared to Mac shows.

Of course they should have called it Fleetwood Mac. But are you crazy? They would never put their "star" in the corner. Only one member gets treated this way. If it was Christine or Lindsey who did not want to record, they would have replaced them and called it Fleetwood Mac.

I don't see the point of arguing with you anymore. It's clear that only a select few on this board are allowed to continually express their opinions without repercussions. I can normally ignore things said on here, but this took things too far, and I couldn't stay silent.
Agreed. Stevie HATED more than Hitler.....? What kind of person even puts them in the same sentence and thinks that is comical? Definitely someone lacking majorly in some department.

It’s worth remembering that when they talked about replacing Chris with Sheryl Crow it was Lindsey who NIXED the idea (ho ho).

Also while one can easily get session players like Brett to do keyboards, the minute a guitarist leaves (or gets pushed) very few groups would just use a sidesman - in come the replacements.

Oh, lighten up.

You're free to have your opinion, and I am to have mine.

And believe it or not, I'm not seeking your approval.

Have a good day.
