RUMOURS THE BOOK
by Ken Caillat
by Ken Caillat
The Inside Story of the Fleetwood Mac album that defined an era.
Making Rumours tells the story of that year of creating this album: the infighting, pain, spectacle and excess of a star-crossed, storm-tossed band, and how all that tumult and tragedy was distilled into the grooves of one of the greatest rock-and-roll albums of all time.
Rumours got its name from the incessant media gossip that surrounded its making, but all the gossip — past and present — has been just that: gossip. Outsiders have tried and failed to tell this story, but a true insider is telling it now for the first time. My name is Ken Caillat, and I am the album’s Grammy-winning producer. In the book, Making Rumours, I chronicle the creation of the record, giving a behind-the-scenes account of the people who experienced it: the band members and producers; their lovers and friends; their roadies and security guards; the record execs and lawyers; and everyone else who was lucky enough to be along for the ride as we made the album.
Ken Caillat has started a Facebook page for his soon to be published book and has so far posted a couple of excerpts from the introduction and Chapater 1. Please help support this effort by heading on over to the "Rumours The Book" Facebook page and hit the "Like" button up top. It is my understanding that the book doesn't have a publisher yet. Maybe with some Fleetwood Mac fan community support we can bring some awareness to his project and help get the attention of a publisher to get the book published.
