Please FM....let rock rule.
I hope you guys have a great time at the show and win the jackpot there.

Probably about $2000 bucks for me when I hit 5 shows.On this tour I'm down to 1 show per year so far.

The lady told me at Staples they had a whole row to themselves at the last 2013 tour. Versus selling out 4 shows at the LA Forum. But somehow it's only Stevie that draws........

let's spin it this way!! .. no wait.. let's spin it that way!!!... OY!

But she's not the only dumb one. In fact, she seems to be the smartest.

I'm just thinking of that 1994 interview where Stevie said when she went on her solo tours,

She's been dangling catnip for decades now. The others should put an end to this cycle. Their album is not going to sell anyway, Stevie or no Stevie. So, if they're waiting because they think they are going to go platinum and get a Grammy if Stevie is on board, they're so stupid I don't even know why I'm wasting my time.

I'll still bet you that it sells far better than SYW. At least a million.

I've been wondering if Stevie and/or Liz have just put a gag on asking about the FM album all together? Because it blows my mind that no one has even asked about it in any interviews. I keep waiting for SOMEONE with the balls to ask her straight up what her thoughts are on her band having finished half an album without one peep from her about it. To ask her "Why aren't you commenting? Your band is so excited and have songs they are super proud of and ready to give to the world. What are your plans for it? Fans clearly want one last masterpiece from this lineup, so why instead of recording a VOL 2 of 24KG aren't you more focused on helping finish what your bandmates so clearly want?" INSTEAD - all we get are the same freakin questions she's answered over and over and over and over and over again. Someone needs to step up and ask some real questions.

Aside from that - I actually enjoy entertaining the idea that she secretly recorded material for the album during their winter break (as someone previously suggested). It's 99% improbable but a part of me likes indulging that tiny little 1% chance.
Nope.She's out promoting 24 Karat and making plans for a follow up to it.The last thing on her mind is recording with The Mac IMO.I have thought from the beginning that Stevie,although I feel she really does love Chris,resents her a little b/c this tour is all about Chris and the spotlight is shining a little dimmer on her,and that is difficult for a diva to take.And I bet you that Bucky's beautiful repoire with Chris this tour is not sitting well with her either.

I love Stevie to bits, and I love her work....But I do agree here, I don't think Stevie has a new, original song left.
Maybe this is the problem, Lindsey and Christine have new stuff and she has old Demos.......(tho her old demos could be better than their new stuff)

Well, then, she needs to do something about it. Become part of it. Sneezing on Lindsey and doing everything in her power to piss him off is clearly making her all the more endearing to him. "I feel left out of the sandbox. I bet they'd all like me if I acted even bitchier and kicked Lindsey in the balls."

Stevie and Lindsey have always had a love/hate relationship. Any tension that currently exists between them is just par for course; when has it ever not been that way? But, being that is the endgame for the band, and likely her last association with Lindsey, it's very disheartening she seems to be playing this power card.

It's credible to assume that Lindsey and Christine could pull off the final Fleetwood Mac album sans Stevie. Yet in terms of their legacy, Stevie plays a significant role in it. Because of this ridiculously massive tour the band has undertaken, millions of people have become reacquainted with the most universal configuration of Fleetwood Mac. For them to reappear, absent of one of their most signature figures, it would be a huge, confounding let down.

Now that Stevie realizes she isn't immortal, she seems to have a fire in her to work more expediently to accomplish more. She doesn't have the luxury of time anymore. It's unfeasible to allow another decade to go by before producing another album/project. The efficient process Dave took to produce 24 Karat Gold, showed her that it's possible to do more in less time.

It seems, perhaps Stevie is reluctant to commit to the Fleetwood Mac album; mostly concerned about the expected lengthy time of involvement. But since most of the album is already done, for her to contribute three or four songs, and sing harmonies is not unreasonable to ask for. You'd expect she would jump at this, as a final gesture, to record with Christine, and show gratitude to the band that made her rich and famous.

She expresses such sentiment for the band, but where is the sentimental lady in her?

Rolling Stone goes that direction in the first place and then when you combine it with Stevie's legacy assuring agenda...there isn't much left of interest.

As much of a stir it caused, the Playboy interview Mick did a few years back may seem like the last really honest piece of journalism associated with this band. Was it part of a larger ploy to get them on the road? yeah probably, but at least Mick had some balls...and his frustration with Stevie I totally understand now, after these recent events.

This band dodges a major bullet with John's cancer and then the crazy fortunate return of Christine and Stevie still can't decide if she wants to be part of the band in the fullest sense - totally baffles me.
You summed it up for me here. I would have thought John's cancer and Christine's return would have really pulled everything together. It is very disappointing as a Stevie fan to see her so reluctant to do this album. I'm at a point where I can take her or leave her being apart of the album. I would absolutely love for her to be apart of it, but I'm alright with just hearing Lindsey and Christine's songs. I loved their collaboration on Tango.

I wouldn't say she resents Christine for attention. However, I have to admit that Stevie didn't seem as excited about Christine's return as I thought she would be. I remember a few people mentioning it during the time as well. I was trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, but now this situation confirms my thoughts. I think that Christine's return could have possibly put a damper on some of Stevie's plans for other projects. She often mentions that she wanted to be doing more for 24 Karat. So if Stevie is resentful, I would say it's because she feels FM is taking her away from what she truly wants to do. On one hand, I can understand Stevie's feelings, but I also feel she needs to make a commitment to the band or leave. Lindsey and Christine had to be all or nothing, so its only fair that the same would go for Stevie. Of course this is all speculation and none of us know for sure. I hope at the end of all of this they will eventually come together and make another album.

Yes, Lindsey said he intends to put his solo career on hold for a new FM album. Christine came back specifically for this reason. First thing she did was give Lindsey new music to work on. They're both in it 100%. Stevie, it seems, is not.
