‘A compelling insider’s account that should ensure you never again listen to Rumours in quite the same way.’ (Q Magazine, February 2013)
Dalla seconda/terza di copertina
Rumours generated four top–ten singles, topped the Billboard album charts for thirty–one weeks, and won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1977. It went on to become the fifth bestselling album to dateforty million copies and countingand Rolling Stone′s twenty–fifth greatest album of all time. And it turned a band that had struggled to make a name for itself for nearly two decades into a household name. In Making Rumours, the album′s coproducer Ken Caillat tells the wild, poignant, and exhilarating story behind the album′s creation. Its potent combination of rock–star melodrama, technical insights, and compelling portraits of five brilliant but troubled young artists at their creative peak will forever change the way you hear the album. Trouble was brewing well before sessions began at the Record Plant in Sausalito in January 1976. John and Christine McVie were getting divorced. Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham had joined the band as a couple more than a year earlier, but now they were in a constant state of war. And, unknown to anyone but Caillat′s coproducer, Richard Dashut, drummer Mick Fleetwood had just learned that his wife was divorcing him and taking up with his best friend. From the first session, which featured the rudiments of "The Chain" and John McVie improvising the critical bass part that ties it all together, to the final sessions that tempered and polished the songs′ vocals, Caillat reveals how these conflicts, fueled by drugs, alcohol, and the pressure of making the album, tore the band apart. But making the music pulled them back together. Stevie and Lindsey had screaming matches between takes of "You Make Loving Fun," and John and Christine bickered constantly. During takes, however, everyone collaborated brilliantly and did whatever it took to get the sound they needed. Lindsey played a beat against a leather chair on "Second Hand News"; Mick stood atop a ladder, tossing sheets of glass to the floor for the haunting end of "Gold Dust Woman"; and Christine, at Ken′s suggestion, took the stage in an empty theater to record her splendid "Songbird" vocal. Woven through all of this drama and artistry, Caillat presents a virtual master class in how to produce a great album. He describes everything from microphone placement and how to liven up a "dead" room to how to work with difficult artists and what to do when your master tape begins to degrade nine months into the process. Packed with scores of never–before–published photos from Caillat′s personal collection, Making Rumours is a must–read for Fleetwood Mac fans, rock history buffs, and anyone who loves a behind–the–scenes account of great musicians at work and play.Visualizza tutta la Descrizione prodotto

The pictures in the book should have been larger -- lots of them but even a magnifying glass doesn't help much. I would have liked to read more about Stevie & Lindsey but that's another book I wish someone would write.
I like this book much more than Carol Ann Harris's story of her relationship with Lindsey Buckingham. From reading Caillat's book, it's clear that Harris came in at the very tail end of Rumours but she writes as if she was in the trenches with them all along.
SERIOUSLY? She wants to play tambourine so you assume she got laid? I'm exhausted reading about how Caillat keeps trying to sleep with the secretary. Get it together! Your book reads like a college freshman student who thinks about sex all day.
I was never a big fan of this era of Fleetwood Mac, but dig the importance of this landmark recording. Plus I'm a big fan of "behind the scenes" stuff, in particular the technical stuff that goes down as well as the gossip and personality stuff. There was a good amount of both, but the more I read the more I began to tire of Stiefel's fawning and excuse making for the behavior of his heros here. Even more grating was his smarmy stories of seduction as he desperately tries to woo various young, hot recording studio employees.
Still, this is great look into the extent of excess and waste that record companies were willing to give up in hopes of a hit album as well as some glimpses into the inner workings and technical things that went into creating the sound. But man..the $$ spent just to appease some coked out, drunk egotists (renting concert halls and recording equipment for just a few bars in a song!) and the incredible amount of time and tape used to get the final takes on these classic songs was an eye opener. None the less, if you can get past the often whininess of the author, you won't be disappointed in this peek into the creation of what some still consider a masterpiece.
