Christine's face in that interview says it all. Stevie had to grab their hands to lie. Their body language was very telling.

Mick's even afraid to mention him in interviews. He's so careful about what he says. And has even admitted he's been scolded. It's like she owns all of them.

Now I understand why they were afraid to call BuckVie a Fleetwood Mac album.
What a f*cking PATHETIC ending to our band.

Whoa! Being an ex-girlfriend, she really got deep down and personal. Gives me goose bumps, even now.

Yes. Just imagine the fun she would have had when he could not talk. She should have taken the opportunity to tell him off good, while he was unable to reply, even if she had to take a break from the FM tour to do it.

I was just thinking that although kicking him out of the band hurt him deeply, there’s probably nothing she could SAY to him that he would even care about. He’s already heard it all. “You’re bad in bed. I wish you dead.” He’d just shrug.

Well, she could tell him Tusk stinks again. That never ceases to get under his skin.

Wasn't that so warm and comforting?

“But we haven’t had any communication [since the letter]”, she added. “It’s OK. If it’s ever meant to happen, it will. If we’re meant to communicate ever again, we will. It’s not happening right now.”

Checking-in during his recovery and rehabilitation wasn't meant to be. When he's ready to apologize for her mandatory cardigan uniform on the 2003 tour, then they can start communicating.
Stay well! Take care of yourself!!

Stevie the ever incredible poet, devoting as much sentiment to someone she’s known for 50+ years as you do to that person in high school who asks you to sign their yearbook but you’ve never said more than two words to ever. Her letter to him had as much depth as “have a great summer! Good luck next year!”

I get it. We’ve been had.

I speculated early on after Lindsey “firing” if the whole drama wasn’t just some plan to give Lindsey some time off from “The Big Machine” to work on a solo album and save a crumbling marriage. Then—a global pandemic, a heart attack, and a pesky divorce unexpectedly delayed the game plan.

The plan would also keep the band working and employ Stevie’s friend Mike after the untimely passing of his band leader.

The ultimate finale would be a kiss and make up FAREWELL tour designed to send the Rumours 5 out in grand style. Unfortunately, age has started to kick in and the farewell needs to happen sooner than expected.

We are “punters” and this band has been toying with us for 46 years.

Partly guilty of subterfuge.

After all, they don’t call it the big machine for nothing!

I got played in 1997 when, after a decade of musical meandering and innocuousness, the five got back together with a seemingly new maturity in which each member’s strengths were lovingly highlighted and all the band’s quirks were celebrated again by critics and the public, as in days of old. I was gullible enough to think that the reunion ethos would settle over all the band’s activities from that point on. But then Christine went and left, and Stevie trotted back off to the solo career (the career that was initially started to accommodate a band that wouldn’t record enough for her taste), and the others kind of stood around wondering, “What happened to our new dawn?” That flush of excitement and good will didn’t even last a year.

I’m not certain that this band and its surrounding machinery engineer all this drama so far out into the future. I think what happens is that someone gets annoyed and turns dramatic and creates a sort of activity vacuum, and the rest of the team spills in because of gravity, and all sorts of hokum is disseminated to the press. Despite their reputation, I don’t think Fleetwood Mac are very resilient — I think they have always responded like a simple life form in a petri dish when you poke it with a small instrument.

She reminds us all she's his ex-girlfriend when it suits her.

Nearly everything she does or reminds of us, suits her.
