It made sense with Billy and Dave, but I think Bekka would be out of place with Lindsey and Christine.

Yea .I agree I love their country tunes.I was shocked to see Dave Mason with FM.I do enjoy his solo and his work with Traffic .

I'd rather see Billy and Rick do a Peter Green-era tribute set. I'm

It should have been the next chapter in the FM saga, but wasn't really given a proper chance.

She is STILL an amazing singer, and still f*cking gorgeous!!!

I've spoken with her in Nashville a couple of times, and she's funny and (seems) down to Earth. My friend is a producer, though, and says she's an egomaniac. I guess when you're that talented, you know it!

I don't know your producer friend, but I've seen it work both ways. The artist knows what he/she wants, the producer has his/her idea of how it should sound, and they can't seem to get on the same page. I've had it happen to me more than once with different producers. One time I was laying down guitar and bass tracks, and I wanted a Chris Squire-heavy treble bass guitar sound, and I could hear the producer warming up the sound in the mix. I had to tell him a few times not to do that. He didn't have a frame of reference for what I was trying to do, and was more concerned about getting the right levels.

He has dealt with both her, and her Mother, Bonnie(Delaney and Bonnie[Bramlett] - that toured and recorded with Eric Clapton, for you kids), and says that they're BOTH divas. Nice enough, but both attention whores.

I know I probably told you in other forums, but Bekka went up with Dave Mason(opening for Journey this past summer), and did a few songs. She has ALWAYS amazed me. Such a gifted vocalist. A natural.

That's amazing in itself cos apparently they really didn't get on when they were in the band together. I guess time heals.

I thought it was just Christine that didn't like Dave? Are you certain?

Yes, hated each other back then. Not sure what changed...

Mick:
'I should have known my vision for this endeavour was flawed when it became clear that Dave Mason and Bekka Bramlett did not get along whatsoever. I though they would, as Dave had worked a great deal with her parents, Delaney and Bonnie. Bekka had known Dave since she was a kid and I imagined there would be a real chemistry between them, because he had been around their house, probably singing songs with her parents as she looked on, like some big, happy musical family. Apparantly not. That tour was heavy on free flowing substances of all kinds, which didnt help matters, but still, there was a real bas blood between them. I was a wreck and drinking and carrying on, but as the tour wore on I found myself having to play mediator for them almost every day. I completely misread what I thought would be a quaint and historically perfect collaboration. Bekka had no time for any kind of connective, band-family stuff on the road at all, and like her mum she did not mince her words. Believe me, you don't want to have Bekka or Bonnie Bramlett unload on you, but that is what started happening to Mason regularly'

Wow, thank you. I'd never seen that. So it truly WAS amazing that she sang with him in Nashville this summer!

How about having Rick Vito sit in as a backup guitarist / backing vocalist? He's played with Mick recently in Mick's blues band. I don't think there is any bad blood with him and other members of the band, but correct me if I'm wrong about that. (I have no clue about who gets along with whom in this band. I basically just like the music.)

I think it would be better for everyone if Rick and Billy had their own thing separate from the other four to be the opening act. I don't think there's bad blood between Rick and any of the others, but I think there's a comfort Lindsey has with Neale.
