Next on: Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at 22:00 on BBC Radio 2
Duration: 60 minutes


On 4 February 1977, an album was released that would go on to be one of the best selling albums of all time. Paul Sexton tells the remarkable story behind the making of Fleetwood Mac's Grammy Award-winning album.

Rumours by Fleetwood Mac was made under the most bizarre circumstances. The two couples at the heart of the band, John and Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, were in the process of splitting up. No songs were written before going into the studio. And everyone was zonked on cocaine. So they wrote about it all as it happened, and one of the most successful albums of all time was the result.

The Story Of Rumours is told through new interviews with Mick Fleetwood and Lindsey Buckingham, as well as some amazing studio tales from producer Ken Caillat. The other band members feature through archive interviews.

It's interspersed with classic hits from the album, including The Chain, Dreams, Don't Stop and Go Your Own Way.
