Thanks for scanning and posting this Michele, it's a great read. I can easily imagine him writing a memoir...

Yes, thank you for posting this. Such a great read! I had no idea FM always recorded the bass and guitar parts first and then the drums. GYOW is truly a masterpiece, for me it’s pure perfection and Fleetwood Mac personified, right there with the Chain. The drums and guitar are dueling in the best way here. I also like how he juxtaposed his lyrics with Stevie’s lyrics in Dreams and pointed out that both songs had lines that weren’t necessarily accurate, but reflected how they felt (“packin’ up, shackin’ up is all you want to do” versus “you say you want your freedom.”)

Such a great read, such a great song. I love finding out more about the process of writing and recording. Thank you for posting.

In Mick's first book he describes Stevie's reaction to the "shackin up" line. She threatened to leave the band if Lindsey kept those lyrics in the song. She felt violated by the line.

Years later Stevie also threatened to leave the band (again) over the name Tusk for the album. It has some sexual meaning.
