So, if he'd work with Christine he wouldn't need Stevie (and would still have her on tour), but he would get her, anyway like it or not. She would run to him down whichever Christine road he chose.

I think Mick understands this, but what is Lindsey's deal?

I think Lindsey does realize all of that. Maybe he just honestly believes that Christine is completely through with FM.

Well i dont know how things are working in the band, but 5 new songs could be a good thing for the fans. Stevie may not want to collaborate with Lindsey, apart from backing vocals. It sucks, but we cant do nothing.


Well Lindsey could have thought of releasing the EP under the name "Lindsey Buckingham and E Str.." ah no...

or something like Lindsey Buckingham's Fleetwood Mac - just imagine how much hate that could evoke from Peter Green purists

I would much prefer an entire album, but the idea of EP's being released isn't too bad. After all these years, the fact they are releasing any new material makes me happy.
I enjoy Stevie's music but I get tired of her constantly throwing a monkey wrench into the prospects of new music.
As for Christine, I'm sure everyone would welcome her back with open arms. But she does not want to. And she has earned the right to say that.

I don't think she is through recording though.

In some ways, this is so sad. However in some ways, its so good.

Here's how I see it. They are going to record two tracks with Stevie. She's going to sing duetparts and back-up on Lindsey's 5 Froomsongs. If he writes and records one other track, they only need a month do do that, and they will have another two 4-track EP's that they can put out independently in a year timeslot. Every EP has three LB songs and a SN song. That means FM buzz dripping for about a year. I think it's a fantastic modern way for drawing attention, it does not cost much, and they will not be prisoned in a Buckinghamworld for a year. Meanwhile, they can tour, do some theatretreks as Buckingham Nicks, tour Australia as FM, and a second leg USA in 2014-15.

Fleetwood Mac is Fleetwood Mac as long as Mick and John are in it. That's the name. With female singers or without female singers.
But you cannot record an EP with two songs on it where Mick is not there. So this EP is a bit of a false start in this thought.

Lindsey wants Stevie to choose him, to want him, to need him. Christine in the mix will not win him that victory.

I agree with you that that's what's he's going for, to a certain extent. That was his aim since SYW. But it seems to me he's already lost that battle. The writing is on the wall. She does not want to work with him. Look elsewhere. There's still great music to be made both solo and with FM.

Maybe they should invite Sheryl Crow into the band to finish a full album.

Fire Stevie and get another singer who ***has her own audience*** who will go to shows and records. There are many out there ***with LARGE followings*** who'd love to be in a band like Fleetwood Mac. Being beholden to Stevie Nicks makes no sense for a band called Fleetwood Mac, which has Lindsey Buckingham in it, especially when they're releasing stuff on their own.

Yeah, Sheryl Crow. Maybe that girl from Massachusetts, Angie, who just got bumped off American Idol. She can play the piano too!

I'd love to see some new Mac members! Doesn't have to be a female, but somebody that fits in good with Lindsey, Mick, and John.

Even though it'll never fly Without Stevie.....Go for it. Why should they be held up. Screw it, move on. It would be very interesting, IMO. New blood in the band would be great.
