I couldn't face going to see them. The only good thing about the tour was some of the pre-BN material that got an airing but that was largely gone by London. And whoever is going to go "Oh. Neil Finn- the Fleetwood Mac guy?"

I felt sorriest for Christine. Although she could have just pulled the plug on the whole enterprise and toed, in public at least, the company line, she wasn't part of the majority that ousted Lindsey; Stevie couldn't be bothered to even provide some cameo backing vocals on a Buck/Vie song, and I just felt she was marooned in a mess. She couldn't have needed the money, but she came back for this? It was one tour and a twist too far. The band didn't look like legends by the end, more fagends after a terrible trip...

Before the band left San Francisco, we decided to play a prank on John Courage, who had been ushering us around America like a herd of dazed cattle for the past three months. The prank came on Colonel Courage's birthday and was entirely John McVie's idea. We bribed a bellboy at the St. James Hotel to look the other way while a barnyard scene was lovingly recreated in Courage's room.

When he returned to the hotel that night, he opened his door to find fifty hens and roosters had turned his room into an immense chicken coop. The whole suite had been filled with fresh hay. and the chickens were everywhere all over the bed, stutled in drawers, and one hen had even laid an egg in the smashed TV set. There was chicken sh-t all over his clothes. All the hay made it a fire hazard, and when I walked in, there was Dennis Wilson Iying drunk in the bathtub, smoking two cigarettes at the same time. It was actually Mite scary, but the colonel took it in good humor. In the end we rounded up the poultry, shoved them in the elevator, and pushed "Lobby."

The real legacy of Fleetwood Mac is Mick, John, and Christine enduring and always finding their way back to each other. From Chicken Shack playing just before Fleetwood Mac debuted to the joint auction between those three -and only those three- signaling the end of Fleetwood Mac without actually having to say it, Fleetwood Mac was their journey. The band might have had an awkward ending, the story did not.

Thank you, Villavic and Lis, for the correction. I guess I got the Johns mixed up. I remember hearing the story on the radio when Save Me was released, which made me think the story took place when Rick and Billy were in the band. Although now Iím even questioning that!

WHO RUINED THE ENDING OF FM?

We all know...
And that, I think, is the crux of her stress with Lindsey.... He doesn't treat her like a BIG STAR or a LEGEND.

Would you say that to Bob Dylan?
I know you are a guy but the proper lyric is "She consults her book"
"He consults his book" simply does not have the same effect.

I am a poet, priest of nothing. But I am a legend (in my own mind)

i agree. so much of the story came down to the bond between those three.

Well of course, and WHY SHOULD HE? The old bat would still be waiting tables if it weren't for him and his package deal. Ungrateful old hag.

Your quoting of the book has become the fodder for humor here, after the death of our favorite band.

WHAT DOES THE BOOK SAY ABOUT THAT?
