Default Other replacements besides Billy or Rick

Iíve made no secret of my love for Billy Burnette and Rick Vito and the Behind the Mask album- if Lindsey had to leave, they were great additions, IMO. Having said that, I thought it would be fun if we discussed other possibilities and how that might have impacted the FM legacy. So Tango in the Night came out in April of 1987 and the tour started at the very end of September. Who else could or should have been considered to replace Lindsey?

1) Bob Welch- seemed obvious, but I have no idea what FMís relationship with Bob was like in 1987. Maybe the band would have felt like they were going backwards rather than forward?

2) Marshall Crenshaw- he has similar musical sensibilities to Lindsey, but his stage shows are incredibly simple. Might have been interesting. Too bad Lindsey and Marshall never collaborated.

3) Steve Perry- okay, no, this would never have happened, but I get chills down my spine just imagining Christine and Steve in the recording studio singing a duet. And a certain female sitting in the booth fuming, to say the least LOL.

4) George Harrison- again, never would have happened, but imagining George on a FM album is fascinating to me. He did play guitar on Leave a Light On by Belinda Carlisle, and he had to have known FM; itís fascinating to me to imagine.

I would love to hear other ideas for replacements. This is all in good fun, but there were an awful lot of one-hit wonders in that era so there would be many folks to choose from.
