Clearly, she taught Christine how to play piano. Just ask her.
Remember when she taught Mick how to play drums back in 1967. After she opened for Hendrix in front of 170,000 people.

Whoever it was here that said she should seriously be checked for dementia, was spot on.

Her stories are full blown delusions at this point. Does she believe them, or just thinks that we're too stupid to know the truth?

I liked it when they asked Stevie why she didn’t play guitar on stage with Fleetwood Mac and she said that she doesn’t play very well and fumbling onstage would just make Lindsey mad at her and start yelling so she wanted to avoid that. I thought she had a very realistic view of her musicianship at that point.

That's why they taped down the jingles on her tambourine!

Well, when Christine left she said that neither she nor Lindsey played piano very well for SYW. So she still knew she couldnít play even as recently as SYW. But she kind of put herself in the same piano bag as Lindsey.

I thought Lindsey sounded pretty good on piano in the Tusk doc. When he's working with Stevie on the harmonies on Angel.

Yes I agree with you that LB played quite well. Stevie played piano better in the past than she does now. Or at least publicly. It was her piano playing of Sisters of the Moon on 20/20 in 1980 that inspired me to want to learn how to play the piano.
