Which may be true these days, but "back in the day", John was no stranger to a microphone between songs. I have quite a few live recordings where John banters between songs quite a bit.

Well they should be deep into rehearsals now. Anyone have any snippets of news? Are they all together? Any sightings of them recently? Do we know yet where everything's happening? Damn, the silence is killing me.

I'll take any opportunity I have to quote some words they've said in a live setting to some unsuspecting person. But, so they don't think I'm a complete weirdo, it has to make sense.
After some song that Lindsey once sang, Christine said, "he thanks you."
I've been able to use that line many, many times recently, because quite often some of us like to use ourselves in the third person in our conversations with others.

Excessive cocaine use has a tendency to make one want to banter quite a bit. It also wonderfully encourages one to talk endlessly. Good times!!!!

Mind you, his banter, no matter how frequent or infrequent on old live recordings (I'd average two times a show at most), he was never THAT talkative. He'd say "thank you" or "that was Stevie Nicks..."--things like that, always in that gruff, terse way of his.

By comparison Welch and C. McVie (on the 71 and 72 bootlegs and then from 75 onward) were much more verbose.

I'm hoping for the songs Hold Me, Songbird, STYLM, Seven Wonders and Everywhere to come back to the setlist.

If Mick was present at the (recent?) Elle magazine interview then I wonder if he flew over in order to accompany Christine back to LA.

It would be weird if they were prepping without her...

Ha! Too funny.
I remember one time playing with the stuff with an old girlfriend a long time ago. At some point in the night....We wrote an email to Nabisco urging them to produce Double-Stuff Nutter Butters.

I'm really surprised more information regarding how rehearsals are going hasn't trickled out yet. Hopefully we will hear some tidbits at some point.
