LMAO...oh my. You'd think after being lucky enough to have somebody like Christine be so kind to you as an incoming band member that you would pay it forward with the situation with Bekka. Way to be an a**hole. Accusing Bekka of over singing...REALLY? from the woman who literally shredded her voice because of their wailing.

I love that we're starting to hear more and more of these behind the scenes Stevie nuggets.

That was a pretty interesting article. Mick was throwing up in a bucket... ew. And Chris telling her which Stevie songs it would be nice NOT to sing lol. Interesting.

Mick was her best buddy until Stevie decided she was ready to come back and then he fired Bekka via fax. No phone call, nothing.

Stevie's people told FM she would do no more than 2 or 3 shows a week and that's it.

Stevie met her and was a condescending biatch "Oh she's blonde?" "She oversings" Kinda funny that last bit when you think about it.

John and Mick are super critical of the band's and each other's performance after each show (even without Chris or Stevie or Lindsey in the band)

Mick was throwing up in buckets during shows.

Christine's wine spritzers were more a tiny bit wine and a whole lotta spritzer.

Chris was nice to her and gave her blessing for Bekka singing some of Chris's songs.

Plenty of coke with Mick, John, and the rest when Bekka was in the band but they kinda did it away from her as she didn't do coke.

Beck's role was to be part of keeping the band going until Stevie was ready to come back. No mention of LB or even Chris. Just the band hingeing everything on what Stevie did.

There's such a long list of people that Stevie and Mick have sh*t on over the years. People who stepped in to save their a**es in a business, behind the scenes kind of way. They owe a lot of people some credit.

This was really thorough and an interesting interview. I appreciate Bekka just being her and not giving a rats behind about her answers. Compare this to anything Lindsey, Stevie, or Mick would ever do. I can see why her and Chris got along - they both seem to be real (as real as superstars like Chris can be).

Im also reminded that Christine McVie was the best person in Fleetwood Mac.

Loved the lunchbox story.

The thing I want to know is why do they all come back to Mick?!?

Like, ALL of them?

Did Mick watch Back to the Future one day and think "Oh that's a great idea. I can just fax somebody when they're fired, easy peasy!"

Probably because he’s a nice guy, and none of them are as bothered by things he’s done as some of the fans are. Seems like they’re all at peace with him and have let bygones be bygones. And likewise, Mick has probably done the same.

I found this interview to be incredible. This interviewer really does his homework! I even loved the questions about Bekka’s time as a back up vocalist on Belinda Carlisle’s tour. I can’t believe Bekka was only 17 when she did that. N the concert that was released on VHS and later DVD, Bekka is quite prevalent.

I haven’t read the entire interview yet, but I’m going to later. So far, it’s must read.

OTOH, I also would consider uttering “I wish I was with REO Speedwagon” a fireable offense.

And, I’m still trying to wrap my head around Stevie accusing someone else of over singing.

Apparently, the ENTIRE WORLD hates Dave Mason.

I think it's awesome that Christine was so nice to her.
