As I type, The Chain has just come on the radio... But I think I agree with you. I love the Rumours line-up beyond almost anything else in music, but when Christine died, I found the most comforting Mac song was Love Shines. There's a purity to it - a simple, beautiful song, unencumbered by the silly Hollywood rock star dramas and squabbles the other two seem to drag around with them.

And thereís the hub of her problem with Lindsey..because of their past she doesnít want him anywhere near.
He spoils her life for her.
But she knows he is the one that spun her songs for her, made her sound a half decent songwriter.
She ainít going anywhere near a recording studio with Fleetwood Mac so doesnít need him.
Any guitarist can sound like Lindsey after her coachingÖ

This part. It's always been the spine of my love for them. The spine of the band and story.

When Christine died, I kept listening to non Rumours songs (at first). Not sure why, but I felt closer to those songs. Even ALAYF, kept popping up.

However, Lindsey was ranked higher than Mike Campbell and Joe Walsh on RollingStoneís greatest guitarist lists. With Lindsey in the lineup, they brought back songs like Sara, Silver Springs, Not That Funny, Eyes of the World, Beautiful Child, I Know Iím Not Wrong, Storms, Sisters of The Moon, Say You Love Me Ď09, Bleed To Love Her, and Seven Wonders, Without You and not to mention SYW songs and Sad Angel. I wish there were more 75-2013 gems added in the tours from 97-2017. I was not a fan of Lindsey before his firing in 2018, but unless something comes out that he told Stevie she had a huge belly or that she canít sing anymore, or recent physical abuse in the 2000s and not violence from a 1980 concert or 1987 meeting for which he never went to prison forÖI think Lindsey will be remembered for being the person who was right. Fleetwood Mac did a final arena and stadium tour, which would have been the same arenas and stadiums had it been with Lindsey but not with the original band.

And Neil is not saying he wishes he could make music with Mick, John, Stevie, and MikeÖ heís saying he wants to meet Lindsey - that guitar player who canít play, sing, or write music.

I wonder what they signed on the bottom line to get FINANCIALLY.... like, did paying both of them cost the band more than just paying Lindsey?? Did having these two new people coming in and getting a slice reduce what was left for Stevie to take..sorry, I mean for the rest of the band to divvy up??

I'd wager both Mike and Neil were given salaries, not percentages but... how much would they have to get per show to make it worth their while?? And of course, to make up for any added costs, the tour would have to rake in more, either through higher ticket prices, more shows, pricier merch, etc....

Itís always been my theory that Stevie used Christineís return to finally get rid of Lindsey.

Stevie let us have Christineís comeback tour, but after that she was done with Lindsey. She couldnít get rid of him before because then it would have just been Stevie with Mick and John, they need at least Lindsey or Christine there to be Fleetwood Mac. So Stevie finally got what she wanted.

I don't understand. Yes Christine came back but left the band for 17 years, Lindsey just for 10. Yes Christine joined long before, but I think the band will be mainly remembered for the Rumours lineup anyway. The legacy to me is the combination of the 5 members. No more no less, despite the nightmares, disappointments and betrayals.

He's simply saying the Brit core is what Fleetwood Mac means to him. I couldn't agree more.

It is for me tooÖI love the Rumours line up donít get me wrong but Fleetwood Mac to me is the Original Peter Green bluesy band.

Stevie and Lindsey were brilliant and made the band huge but the heart is the Brits.

Yep, John, Christine and Mick made it all the way to the end. And were there in some way shape or form at the start.

Thatís a point that needs to die. Fleetwood Mac was only active for five of those sixteen years.

Compare that to when Lindsey was out: Fleetwood Mac made two albums (and maybe two EPs worth of new tracks on various compilations) and did three tours in the ten years Lindsey was gone. (BTM, Time, two songs for GH, three songs for the box, Roll With Me Henry, Lizard People, and the original Blow By Blow.)

If anything, that only proves how vital Christine was to Fleetwood Mac.

Thatís maybe the most criminal aspect of the whole thing. Why get a guy with his own sound if youíre going to make him sound like the guy you just sacked? The irony being she doesnít demand that of Waddy.

Not to mention, a huge insult to his accomplishment as an artist and player. I honestly thought he made the band explosive and had those blues chops that Rick had. Hey Eric Clapton, could you sound like Lindsey for us?

The main reason ..He (Lindsey) is not on stage with her..someone who is willing to play like Lindsey, but not be Lindsey is, perfect as far as she is concerned.
Mission accomplished.
And in the planning a long time, this wasnít a spur of the moment thing.
