I don't think John gives a flying **** about it, though.

I don't think any of them do. However, I just wanted to stick up for John's libido. Get a good word in for it.

It's always the quiet ones.

There was something similar last night. We were told they were VIPs but they did appear to know the sings and the band as well as many of the other people up the front (except for the Ledgies!).

Yeah, they definitely were doing this toward the latter half of the US leg as well. At first people thought it might have been because they were filming the show and wanted younger faces up front for the cameras... But that clearly wasn't the reason as they did it more and more.

In past threads people were speculating that if they got the young kids up front, they might have an overall more awesome experience and go home and tell their friends about it. But that seems like kind of a stretch and rather complicated. As much as I hate to admit it, it would make more sense if it were done so Lindsey could look at some hot girls for a few hours, or so the security guy might find a desperate one willing to pay him some extra attention.

Does anyone here go to many other mainstream boy-rock concerts? I don't, but I wouldn't be surprised if such practices were pretty standard in the genre. I imagine it might be viewed as a standard part of the job for a road crew. It probably wasn't Lindsey's idea, as it's just too difficult to picture him approaching a road crew and explicitly asking for such a thing. But I wouldn't rule out that possibility either, really, and either way, he obviously hasn't asked them to stop. Men enjoy what they're programmed to enjoy, and powerful men have the means to enjoy more of it. I have a hard time being too surprised or bothered by it.

I have definitely noticed LB giving more attention to the young hot chicks, not saying it was his idea, although I don't think it would surprise me. I was at a show where he practically ignored most of us in front of him in favor of flirting with a pretty blonde 20 year old all night, including putting his guitar right in front of her to strum, high fiving only her and giving her a pick. It was annoying to the rest of us, and I felt insulting to true fans. She may have been a real fan but I have seen plenty of others at the stage who didn't know one word and really didn't even know anything about the band.

The question is, why are they even in the show in the first place? Those who have no idea on anything about FM, I mean.

I'm wondering that as well. If I were a hot young thing who didn't know who Fleetwood Mac was, I'm sure I'd be spending my time and money elsewhere.

Perhaps they are offered free tickets on the basis of their hotness? But even then, giving up an evening to a band you're not very interested in seems like a weird choice to me.

If I were a hot 20 year old (only one of these applies to me, BTW), I would be out somewhere else. Not listening to a group of boring old farts way past their sell-by date.

Perhaps our hypothetical hot-young-women selves have a lot of unresolved daddy issues? Hmmm...

Someone going to the London concerts should find one of these women and ask her some questions about her relationship with her father. I smell a thesis, people!

I'm a young woman, but not necessarily hot.

Ah, I'm sure you clean up really nicely, applebucked. You can be our spy! Sneak in there, befriend the tribe, and see if you can get to the bottom of what's going on in their hot little heads.

Do it for science!

Sure. I'll hire a private jet to London, shake hands with them important people, bribe them with lavish gifts, and conduct the survey. Who knows, I could bump into Christine and we can talk about ER together.
