Except that they were playing arenas, not state fairs or small amphitheaters.

Hypothetical. Stevie plays a 20,000 arena show thatís half full and only half the crowd is there to see Stevie. Thatís 5000 people paying to see Stevie. LBCM headline a 4000 seat arena down the road thatís 3/4 full. Thatís 3000 people for 2/3 of Fleetwood Macís vocalists.

Thatís the reality with Fleetwood Mac.
On and on it will always be, the rhythm, rhyme, and harmony.
