Probably. Although his style is pretty far removed from any relevant to Fleetwood Mac. Compare “Something So Strong” to “Remember Me” (especially the Roxy version).

So part of the reason they brought on Neil and Mike was to play music that Neil and Mike made outside of FM and not to make a new FM song or songs to play live?
To a degree. That’s a narrow reading of it. Neil and Mike have big enough names that they were able to make up any attrition at the ticket counter due to the split with Lindsey. To put it another way, would Billy and Rick have been able to bring something comparable to Petty Nation?
On and on it will always be, the rhythm, rhyme, and harmony.
