Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood Reveal Secrets Behind Fleetwood Mac Rumours

Longest Running Rumor In Music Turns 40

Fleetwood Mac released 'Rumours' 40 years ago on February 4, 1977
Dallas, TX - February 1, 2017.  North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands  uncovers the stories behind the longest-running rumor in music history, 1977’s Grammy Award-winning album by Fleetwood Mac, Rumours.  

In the mid-‘70s there was no other band more professionally and personally linked together than the five members of Fleetwood Mac. Barely three years earlier California duo and couple Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham had joined the British blues-rock band Fleetwood Mac collaborating on its breakout 1975 “White Album”, cementing the Mac’s long overdue commercial success while at the same time raising eye brows and ears around the world as to what could possibly come next.  

Truth be told, the members of Fleetwood Mac were literally living secret and separate lives. One as band members and the other as lovers falling apart. It was this tension filled environment that produced some of the most genuine emotion filled music of the decade. Fueled by their talent and ambition what would normally break bands apart, somehow kept them together and produced one of the biggest selling albums of all-time. 

Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, and Mick Fleetwood share their story to In The Studio host Redbeard, warts and all. 

“The album was really a catharsis of human emotions, if you like. And never at any one point, that I can remember, was it ever discussed by any one person that they wanted out, or that they couldnt’ handle it.” - Mick Fleetwood

“I mean “Go Your Own Way”, “The Chain”, “Dreams”, “Never Going Back Again”, “Don’t Stop” thinking about tomorrow, “Second Hand News”, “I Don’t Want to Know”, “Gold Dust Woman”… they were all about trying to make it through that particular period of time.”  - Stevie Nicks

“You’re talking about a situation during the making of Rumours which was very painful for me, working with someone I was still in love with, who didn’t want to be with me.”   - Lindsey Buckingham

Never heard of this album. Maybe it's time for a re-release and some more interviews about it?

You should definitely check out Fleetwood Mac (RUMORS) album you will not be disappointed. It was before my time but I still think it's the greatest music ever written in my opinion. You can find interviews and listen to the full album on YouTube. LOVE Fleetwood Mac ��

Cj, fyi, I'm pretty sure that previous comment was sarcasm. Rumors is among the best known albums of all time and there have been hundreds of interviews and articles about it over the decades. There's little new to be revealed by the band members regarding that album at this point in time, hence the sarcasm.

Rumors production is better than albums that are produced in 2017...

Rumors dynamic songs breathe and ebb and flow because of the brilliant old school analog tape recording.

I hope Donald Trump writes an Executive Order to bring back analog recording studios....

Tens of thousands of articles, interviews, news shows, books world-wide for 40+ years. Yes it was sarcasm but there is a massive new audience for this timeless masterpiece for whom it's all new & fascinating material. Just like us old ass people that keep listening out for new untold snippets of material from all of the staff and personnel that worked for the band for years.
