Thank you, sue. It's so kind of you to report back to us.
I'm so sad to hear about John. I hope he enjoys his life; he deserves it. Now I believe I know why he didn't participate in the 2020 Green celebration.

It's so hard to read this. I guess it's better that they die of old age than overdoses, but it's still difficult to see your heroes approaching nursing home age.

She said, he preferred going out on his boat, and heís okay, just too frail to tour
So he must be okay......and maybe he doesnít want to tour( he doesnít need the money or the limelight)

My mom’s a year older than Christine. She had her first stroke eleven years ago and has had several more since. Back in August, she fell and broke her hip. The squad gave her a shot of fentanyl which caused her to have a massive stroke. Long story short, After five months in a nursing home, her feeding tube was removed two weeks ago and she was able to move into an assisted living on Friday.

Back in 2014, we went to see Fleetwood Mac, and she had the biggest smile seeing someone her age still able to do it.

We’ve been very lucky to have had them this long.

She did not rule out touring again but is iffy. No John is sad but she said definitely not Stevie so I would love to see the Mac without Stevie and sad without John. But you are talking 2022 at the earliest and I think she will be too old.
I think Stevie will do a farewell solo tour and Lindsey will definitely solo tour again. She sounded a little under the weather and getting really old.

My favorite aunt is Christine's age, and I often look at her, imagining her doing what Christine does. She still gets around just fine, but it's hard to imagine anyone being that age, and being on stage, and being "on your game"(Mick Jagger is a freak, and doesn't count).

If Johnís not touring again, then I doubt Christine will tour. Her loyalty is to Fleetwood and McVie. (I used to think it was also to Buckingham but the last tour changed all that.)

Without John onstage, the one thread of continuity is gone. The rhythm section that Christine and John were so proudly a part of is done.

I would, however, love to hear one more Christine album. I know it might be greedy or unrealistic, but Iím confident she could still write, play, and sing in the studio...

Off topic, but I was listening to Eric Claptonís ďJourneymanĒ album a while ago and thought thatís what Fleetwood Mac should have done in the mid-90s instead of Time. It would have been an album of pop, rock, and blues that would be the core three, all Christine on vocals, with a bunch of guest guitarists, vocalists, and other musicians.

I wonder if Mick will have the balls to have Mike, Neil and another bass player and call it FMac.

You have doubt? Mick's a f*cking scumbag.

I donít see him putting another Fleetwood Mac together, one even more radical than the 94-95 lineup, although heís technically been the only original member since Bob Welch joined. I think an offshoot of some type (Fleetwood...) is much more likely.
