care about what? what's said here? I'm sure for the most part they don't. I don't think most people post here trying to speak directly to the band members....(though it's nice if some of it filters back). It's fans talking to each other.

However if I am a fan of the band in its entirety I'd check once in a while all the forums (even if I wouldn't comment) of its members, especially as you say during the periods of activity together. I just couldn't really say that I love a band If I don't care about a part of its input.
I don't doubt someone said that to you, in truth since I write at least every once in a while in every sub-forum it happened to me at least once in each one of them. But I don't think we shouldn't tar everyone with the same brush.
exactly!! I cruise through all the forums. I've seen all 3 songwriters on their solo tours in addition to the band tours. I own all their solo albums (including Mick and John). Granted I listen to some way more than others, but I'm always going to be interested in what all of them are up to.

I think this whole thread should be changed around to say Why are some FM fans so bitter about Stevie? We defend her to the nth degree but we should not even be called upon to do that.

Sometimes I want to do a survey titled "Why does the Rumours forum always have new threads with complaining titles?"

I agree.I'm not bitter with any of the Mac members or anybody on here. .Again and sorry to say this.I'm just tired of all the on and on complaining/crying/whining/fighting /fussing on these topics in what should they do together and not do together as a band and other stuff about them .To note .Also these threads are bleeding into the other forums on the similar topics . Its time to move on and get over it.Just enjoy what we have with Fleetwood Mac and its members while they are still with us even if we agree or not in what they do together or not together and their solo careers .

Because we have been waiting for new FM studio album since 2009. If that's not clear by now, maybe we haven't been complaining enough?

But Skip, not that I'm not happy that all macsters seem healthy, doing well and all, but we are not their family or friends, we are fans. If they don't produce, I as a fan of their music am getting nothing from them.

There are too many fans who seem to treat these poeple they never met as personal friends. They don't need us to "defend" them. They might need us to "clamor" for new music though, and that's exactly what many of us are doing - and we don't need any prompting for that, but we also don't need to be constantly told by a small contingent of sn fans that we should stop and just be happy these millionaires are alive and well.

Also why are people who claim to not be imterested in these threads opening and reading them, seemingly just so they can complain about us complaining? If these threads annoy you, just don't read them!

Oops I figure to ruffle your feathers on this but agree with you and others about their low or no output from them over the years and now with thick headed Stevie stalling the project for the last few years .You are right .Maybe I should not read these threads if it gets to repetitive on the topic.

1st this is extremely Entertaining .

2nd all this hate, and negativity is based I assume on an article from one source .... and nothing really direct from anyone in Fleetwood Mac
why hasn't anyone called Liz Rosenberg ..... or dave
