Fleetwood Mac Have Reconciled with Lindsay Buckingham

Now can Miss Nicks quit being a cunt and realize they’re getting closer to becoming plant food and to get along already?! How many times is this bitch going to act like she has many more years to make amends? She admitted a few years ago that she’s still holding grudges against him from a million years ago.

I feel bad for Christine and Jon. being in a band with three world class prima donnas (Stevie, Lindsey, Mick) must have been hard. If Christine had been slightly more attractive and charismatic she'd be a household name like Elton John. She's one of the best British singer songwriters ever but is virtually anonymous.

R9 Stevie has Mick wrapped around her finger cuz she brings the big bucks to the stadium shows. Lots of guys back in the day would have jumped off a cliff for her. Now, not so much. Only Mick.

Jimmy Iovine was the dude Stevie really walked all over. I loved how on Stern he explained how Stevie and he schemed to get a song from Tom Petty on her album. Got to hand it to her she eventually did worm her way into Tom Petty's life whether he wanted it or not.

[quote]But at least the session produced one good anecdote. “I do remember trying to talk Lindsey into joining the band that night,” he says. “Stevie [Nicks] wasn’t playing with them at the time, so I said, ‘Why don’t you just join our band and get the heat off of me?’ I never wanted to be the front guy – I got that job and I’ve been stuck with it ever since.”

[quote]Buckingham’s bandmate had a different vision: Stevie Nicks, Petty says, was dying to join the band. “Oh, she wouldn’t quit,” Petty says. “Stevie showed up at my house every night for a year – maybe more.” But Petty was firm: “There’s no girls in the Heartbreakers.” Nicks followed them on tour anyway – “every fucking night,” Petty says. “ ’Stevie’s in room so-and-so.’ ‘Stevie wants a song.’ We gave her a hard fucking time: ‘No way you’re coming to a session. Look at the fucking clothes you’ve got on.’ The fact that she stuck around was amazing.” (They eventually did team up for what would be one of the all-time great rock duets: “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.”)

Mick Fleetwood is such a great drummer. John McVie is an excellent bassist. Christine doesn't get credit for her piano playing, and Lindsey is a world class guitarist. Their talent is all wasted on the throngs of dopey homos and mentally stunted suburbanites who show to concerts up dressed as witches because they worship Nicks like a goddess for the top hats, chiffon and lyrics about moons, magic spells and witches. Seriously Fleetwood Mac concert might smell worse than Grateful Dead concerts. At least at Grateful Dead concerts you don't have to deal with drunk sisters of the moon or step in gypsy puke. If they played smaller venues without Stevie "two note range" Nicks and played instrumental versions of songs like Over My Head and Oh Daddy, I'd be one happy gay.

by Anonymousreply 2804/27/2021

Fleetwood Mac isn't doing anything. Stevie crowned herself the queen she makes all the decisions now, like basically turning Fleetwood Mac into The Heartbreakers and not recording any new music. The deaths of Danny Kirwan in 2018 and Peter Green in 2020 has made Mick Fleetwood change his position and Mick wants to record again. Christine is refusing to do anything without Lindsey on board. Stevie won't budge, its essentially a stalemate. Despite the narrative pushed by Stevie stans, the rest of them didn't want Lindsey to go and Christine was especially pissed off by Stevie's machinations. Also Stevie and Christine were not buddy-buddy back in the day. Stevie has always primarily sucked up (and in many cases sucked off) Mick because he was the boss. Now she's the boss.

[QUOTE] Stevie Nicks is a tier lower in fame than those two.

Yes and no. Dolly and Cher are more well known, but among the people that DO know Stevie Nicks, she’s transcended regular rock stardom and has some kind of mythical quality to her now. A lot of people act in awe of her, maybe not so much for the music which isn’t everyone’s cup of tea (Dolly’s isn’t my cup of tea, btw) but for her witchy image, longevity, and her survivor-dom.

Fun fact though, Stevie somehow could afford to retain Liz Rosenberg prior to Liz’s retirement a few years back. Liz also represented Madonna, Cher, and I think Streisand. I think having Liz helped open a lot of doors for Stevie during the years she worked with her, and helped move her out of the burnt-out rock and roll causality period of Stevie’s career to her triumphant comeback in 1997 with The Dance.

The somehow is that Stevie's reported net worth is between $75 and $120 million. I know someone who used to work with her decades ago and she still flies them and others around the world—Paris, Australia, etc.—on private jets, all expenses paid.

by Anonymousreply 4005/03/2021

For years her net worth was estimated to be around $75 million which is rich, but not ‘buy-a-penthouse-on-57th-in-NYC’ rich like J Lo or Madonna. I understand she sold the rights to her music though recently, to the tune of like $100 million so I guess now she’s much richer. Then again, she has no husband and kids, and doesn’t have expensive hobbies like buying cars and properties, so her overhead is low.

I both love and hate when people are always ranking everything relative to others—"$75 million is a lot, but compared to $500 million, it's a pittance." Capitalism never fails to creep me out.

Supposedly she gave that up after Betty Ford, that’s the mythology she touts on interviews. She does admit she spent “gazillions of dollars” on cocaine though, and would be “much richer” today if she hadn’t. But you can never believe everything she says in interviews, supposedly she cleaned up for the recording of “Tango In The Night” but Mick has recently said that his and Stevie’s coke use was at their worst point ever in 1987 during the recording that Lindsey made them stay in a camper parked in his driveway.

R46 Stevie called herself a 'rock and roll nun' a few years ago and played down her pretty well documented chaotic druggy nymphomania. I don't take Stevie, Mick, or Lindsey at their word. They all have their own agendas and their preferred telling of stories are about as solid as sandcastles. I get whiplash from reading Stevie Nicks interviews. She cannot keep her stories straight and always spins the narrative that she was a poor, innocent ingénue when in fact she partied just as hard as the guys. Mick changes his story based on whether he think Stevie or Lindsey can make him more money at that given moment. Lindsey either lies or doesn't remember how difficult he was in the studio. He tried to play off his manic, coked up , head shaved Tusk years as wanting an image change, lol.

R47 That's odd. She did an episode of "Oprah's Masterclass" in which she talked about lessons she has learned in her lifetime, and a lot of it was about having taken so many drugs and then she talked about how a therapist almost killed her with Klonopin and she said that Klonopin is so much more dangerous than cocaine, if I am remembering correctly.

I agree with her about benzos being harmful but I was surprised that a network would broadcast life advice from someone that sounded like it amounted to "do coke and run away from drugs prescribed by psychiatrists."

I've never taken cocaine and I think of it as a very harmful drug, but I have to say, I really do think that within the next few decades, a lot of pharmaceutical drugs doled out for anxiety are going to prove to have been dangerous, too.

Here's a clip I found from ABC that's similar to the Oprah episode.

Stevie's Klonopin intake was bad. You can see it mostly n Timespace era interviews. She's pretty much immovable on a couch with her lips talking. She looks so listless.

She says she was taking something like eight a day, but says she didn't know what was wrong with her until she fell down at a party and smashed her head against a fireplace and didn't feel a thing. It kind of surprised me that she didn't think taking eight pills of anything a day wouldn't raise red flags, but then, I'm in not Hollywood either.

Stevie is very well known to the younger crowd these days. That's partly why she was able to get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a second time! She's an icon and clearly the most famous member of Fleetwood Mac.

The default quirky alt chick of the later half of the 2010s is/was sort of a '70s bohemian throwback - the witchiness, the suede boots, the chiffon, the top cats, horoscopes, macramé, feathered hair.

Stevie is a road warrior and at her happiest when she’s on stage. The lure of cash, fan adoration and avoidance of old age loneliness will make her agree to anything which means she will ultimately cave to one last “farewell” tour with Lindsay on stage. They will indulge fans in the bullshit with Landslide (“thank you, Lindsay” “thank you, Stevie”) and fans will be happy for it. It’s ridiculous to think they won’t be on stage together one last time.

That cozy relationship ended when 1) Stevie fucked Mick 2) During the Mirage tour cunt Stevie got her manager to get her a larger percent of touring revenue 3) when cunt Stevie was a drugged up mess during the Tango tour.

R77 When Christine returned to the band Stevie swiftly adopted a 'boo men bad, Christine and I were the band, we were feminist crusaders' narrative that's popular with imbeciles. I think she thought she could get Christine on her side or at least use the media to make it look like Christine and her were on the same page so that when she did have Lindsey fired it would look like all of them wanted him gone. That was the story many people went with in 2018 including that cunt hack writer Stephen Davis. That backfired, of course, when Lindsey pretty cuntingly revealed the private letter that Christine sent him in his lawsuit. He was a massive cunt for doing that but it made his ass look better. Christine is nearly 80 years and her last official album with the Mac was 30 years ago.

Tom Petty should have told Stevie Nicks to fuck off and leave him alone. I guess he didn't have the balls. Or maybe she was good at cocksucking and he couldn't resist her charms in that regard. Anyway, if she behaved the way he said she did then she's crazy as shit.

Here's something interesting I saw in a recent bit about Buckingham where he talks about not getting "closure" in his tortured relationship with Nicks:

Speaking in a new interview, Buckingham, who was fired from the band in April 2018, discussed his relationship with Nicks and reflected on not getting any closure after their fallout.

“And really, again, that was part of the deal with Stevie and me was that we had to spend an awful lot of time together without ever having gotten closure from each other,” he told Nile Rodgers on his Apple Music 1 show Deep Hidden Meaning Radio With Nile Rodgers.

Buckingham continued: “Most people, when they break up, they don’t see each other for a long time or maybe ever again. But you’re not constantly having to not only see someone but, in my case, make the choice to do right for someone when I didn’t always feel that I wanted to, you know?

“In order to take a song of hers, like ‘Dreams’, which needed so much construction around it to take those same two chords and make them evolve from section A to section B to section C. And the love and the choice to do the right thing and to have the integrity to do that. It comes at a price sometimes, you know? It comes at the price of having your defenses come up, and sometimes over a period of time, it’s hard to get those down.

Yeah, I'm sure it was and is difficult for him to have to swallow his pride, but at some point you grow up and act gracious. Remember how his reaction to Stevie's speech at that Music Cares event is supposedly what set her off? Before the speeches, the band was to play a few songs, and he freaked out backstage because Rhiannon came on the loudspeaker as entrance music and he supposedly thought the song they played should have represented the whole band better. Please. It's petty and jealous bullshit, especially for someone over the age of 70. He could grow up and be genuinely happy for her, but he won't. She could also choose not play into the power play games and just roll her eyes at him, but she doesn't.

He's always gone out of his way to minimize her talents and contributions to the band. It's also a backhanded way of trying to minimize her successful solo career as well.

I don't think he's ever gotten over her huge success right from the start with Bella Donna hitting number one and being the first member of Fleetwood Mac to get her own cover. But with all the shit Stevie gets for being a diva, etc, she could have left Fleetwood Mac for good at that moment. But she chose to stay with them out of loyalty. That speaks volumes about her character.

I thought was pissed Stevie off was that she was giving a speech and Buckingham started clowning around in the back of her.

And sorry, but Rhiannon is one of their signature songs. The Chain is good, but if they were going with a song that most people would associate with Fleetwood Mac, Rhiannon would make more sense.

by Anonymousreply 103Last Sunday at 8:34 AM

R100 I can't speak to her motives but sticking around Fleetwood Mac could be read as an act of ego. If her solo career started to fail (which it did by the early 90s) she always had Rumours to fall back on. She's been postponing and arranging her tours so to shorten Fleetwood Mac tours since the 80s. Instead of being in the studio for Tango in the Night she's flew to Australia to appear on stage with Bob Dylan and Tom Petty. That's not loyalty. That's having your cake and eating it too. Fleetwood Mac would have toured and recorded a lot more music in the 80s without Stevie being an albatross around their necks.

R103, that is true, but there was this separate incident that was not as widely reported

by Anonymousreply 105Last Sunday at 8:37 AM

R103 The Chain is one of their top 5 most listened to songs on spotify and routinely gets coverned by younger artists Rhiannon has slipped in popularity quite a bit over the years. I still don't know why either of them would be pissy about it because Stevie wrote the chorus to The Chain and Lindsey came up with that epic riff in Rhiannon. Control freak divas smh.

Everywhere is a more popular song than Rhiannon going by spotify numbers. Christine and Lindsey's (but especially Christine's) songs always did better than Stevie's in international markets.

R108 It's a massive song in Europe and the UK. It still gets a lot of radio play. Rhiannon doesn't get played at all. 'America is not the world' as Morrissey would say.

R114- Agreed. What a shit album. It has aged like BAD wine.

Lindsay's work on it is superior but the music is so light and supremely dated.

Everywhere is a song I associate with supermarket music. It's horrible.

Stevie sounds DEAD on her songs.

When I See You Again is horrible.

by Anonymousreply 116Last Sunday at 10:46 AM

Stevie stans will push the 'Stevie is more popular' card when it's convenient but when they get hit with actual numbers like Everywhere being more popular than Rhiannon, being top 10 in multiple countries and dominating streaming and they will start talking about artistic merit or whatnot, the same argument that they often shoot down Lindsey stans for pushing. There is not arguing with stan brains. They will twist and contort truth to mean whatever they want.

[QUOTE] When I See You Again is horrible.

Fleetwood Mac had the choice between “What Has Rock and Roll Ever Done For You” and “When I See You Again.” For whatever reason they chose “When I See You Again” which I think was a huge mistake.

“I had a really good time...WELLLLL it was really good!!!”

R120 WHRaREDFY didn't match the vibe of Tango in the Night. I don't think it's a particularly good song either. None of her vocal performances during this time would have sounded stellar because she was in and out of rehab, still on coke, and barely around. Even if When I See You Again is a clunker it has the sort of moodiness and atmosphere that suits the album better than a straight 80s style rock song.

by Anonymousreply 121Last Sunday at 11:57 AM

R121- You said perfectly. I despise TIT-N. (Tango In The Night) but yes, the horrific When I See You Again actually fits the album. The other song is horrible in its own way and does sound like a Rock A Little reject. It also could have fit on Street Whore Angel.

by Anonymousreply 122Last Sunday at 12:00 PM

This is one of my favorite of Stevie’s vocal performances...too bad it wasn’t picked to make it on the Mirage album. The version that made it onto her solo album from a few years ago pales significantly in comparison.

Buckingham was listening to a lot of Kate Bush and Cocteau Twins up to and while recording Tango in the Night and you can here that rhythmic and baroque pop styles in TITN and Hounds of Love. By the mid late 80s Stevie had been completely consumed by her rock n' roll fetish that Tom Petty planted in her. I'll always contend that Tom Petty was the worst thing that happened to her music. I like Tom Petty but the Heartbreakers were still nothing more than a rock n' roll pastiche band that made solid rock tunes while Fleetwood Mac was so much more than that. 'When I See You Again' is placed perfectly between 'Isn't it Midnight' and 'You and I, Part II'. I can't imagine 'What has Rock....' anywhere on the album. Even 'Family Man' which I think is the worst song (if only for the janky singing and dumb Richard Dashut lyrics) on the album has its purpose.

My favorite song on the album is Mystified. Listening to it feels like being swathed in black velvet and watching a meteor shower while the smell of exotic orchids and jungle fills your nose. It's a whole ass Rosseau painting mood.

R123 I prefer Straight Back on Mirage to that song. Neither is particularly stand out, honestly. The problem with Straight Back is that Lindsey either got lazy or they ran out of time. Stevie could only show up for 3 months, so that's how long it took to record. Rumours and Tusk both took over a year to complete, thus Mirage sounds comparably incomplete. The biggest crime is Wild Heart not being recorded like the backstage version. It would have been impossible though because Stevie's singing over a Lindsey song and neither of their egos could handle it being released like this: Lindsey giving up one of his songs only for it to be more popular, Stevie having to give Lindsey songwriting credit.

[QUOTE] was in and out of rehab, still on coke, and barely around

“Welcome to The Room Sara” has to be post-rehab voice then because in Mick’s book he claims this song is about Stevie’s experience in Betty Ford. Her voice is a little more steady, at the expense of her famous vibrato. This was the dull colorless voice she would use for Behind The Mask and The Other Side of The Mirror.

[quote] If Mick can hire people to replace Lindsey for a tour, why can't he hire people to replace Stevie for a tour? Wynonna Judd could get up there and twirl around, the crowd would love it.

I can see that. Not twirling, though. Wynonna dresses kind of like Stevie and definitely has the vocal chops to sing any FM song, forward and backward.

Wynonna also has the same It Factor / star power that Stevie has.

Thanks, R135. Agree. I don't consider "You Make Loving Fun" a great song at all. It's on par with "Don't Stop (Thinking about Tomorrow)." Lyrics are really banal.

by Anonymousreply 136Last Sunday at 2:46 PM

I think the “ahhh ahhh ahhh” part of YMLF is worth the banality of the lyrics, you really get that 70s shimmer. Lindsey and Stevie’s voices really complimented Christine’s in harmony, hearing Stevie pop out in the mix is a treat because her voice was so sweet back then.

i think the Chain is boring. The melody is dull. The lyrics are nothing special. The only notable part is the simple bass solo.

by Anonymousreply 139Yesterday at 12:02 PM

R139 but it's a killer bass solo. BBC Formula 1 used The Chain starting at the bass solo from 1978 - 1996 and 2009 - 2015. That bass solo makes the song.
